Not everyone is satisfied with this proposal, however. Some feel it is being done on the cheap & lacks architectural integrity..... Especially those embarrassingly naff phrases etched onto buildings. Please, no!

These are proposals for a significant development within Liverpool City Centre, reimagining and reinvigorating the area around Chinatown.

We have looked at adding vibrancy and animation at lower levels while establishing a look across the three phases of development inspired by the Chinese paper art of zhezhi.

The development will draw visitors to a hitherto under-developed city quarter through attractions such as Chinese retail, a spa and hotel.

  • Residential units: 1,000
  • Commercial and retail space: Circa 150,000 sq ft
  • Planned start date: Final Quarter 2015

The mixed-use vision will also include a major leisure and commercial element with restaurants, specialist Chinese retail, Live-Work accommodation for independent businesses and new cultural and community facilities for the area.

We’re working closely with The Mayor, the UK Government and Liverpool’s Chinese community to plan and design the project that will be one of the most exciting development projects delivered in the UK over the next five years.

Designed by BLOK Architects the scheme combines bold modern architecture with traditional Chinese design elements and philosophy.

New Chinatown in Liverpool is a unique project and will be an exceptional investment opportunity.

Elliot Lawless's company Elliot Group has announced plans for a redevelopment of Liverpool's Wolstenholme Square, with a mix of residential, commercial, leisure and retail uses contained within five blocks.

The proposals are to be unveiled to the community later in April, and are expected to include 370 apartments, alongside a new venue for club Cream and a performance space managed by collaborators from The Kazimier, which would relocate to another site.

The project, designed by Liverpool architect Falconer Chester Hall, will see the creation of new buildings ranging up to 10 storeys and a passageway through from Wolstenholme Square to Seel Street to improve the area's permeability.

The proposals, which include ground floor commercial space for cafes, restaurants and shops, club space and serviced and residential apartments, represent an investment of more than £40m should planning permission be granted.

The public is now being asked to comment on the plans before a planning application is submitted. An exhibition at Cream's home, Nation, is being held on Tuesday 28 April from 2pm to 8pm at which the public can see outline plans and register their views.

Wolstenholme Square designs revealed in new images for £40m project

Images showing what Liverpool’s historic Wolstenholme Square could look like under £40m transformation plans have been released.

The proposals by Elliot Group include a new home for superclub Cream and a fresh venue run by bosses at The Kazimier.

There will also be residential and commercial space including more than 447 studio and one bed apartments, shops, restaurants and cafes.

Adam Hall, managing director of Liverpool firm Falconer Chester Hall – the architects behind the designs – said: “A great deal of attention has gone in to creating buildings that stand scrutiny in their own right but which combine to make a very cohesive group.

“The focus is on quality of design, fittings and workmanship as the market expects nothing less.”

A planning application for the development was submitted last month and is due to go before Liverpool council’s planning committee this September.

Plans for Wirral's multi-million pound Jack Nicklaus 'golf resort' revealed

Golfing legend Jack Nicklaus is to be revealed today as the man behind Wirral’s ambitions to become the “capital of England’s Golf Coast”.

The council is set to announce the golfer’s company will be the preferred developer for the multi-million pound golf resort planned for land adjacent to the famous Royal Liverpool Golf Club.

The proposals would see the development of a championship golf course, “high quality” – read four star or above – hotel, clubhouse and the only Links Academy in the UK outside of the home of golf St Andrews.

The local authority is due to make the formal announcement this morning, and the move could also see improvements to local road links connecting Hoylake and West Kirby to the rest of Wirral, as well as creating hundreds of new jobs in construction and longer term at the resort.

A highly placed council source told the ECHO: “This will mean Wirral and Hoylake will be the English Golf Coast Capital and enable us to continue our fantastic relationship with the Royal Liverpool Golf Club.”

Council sources also confirmed Jack Nicklaus had been heavily involved in the planning so far and would continue to be with the course design.

During his career Nicklaus has won 18 professional major championships, and his company has almost 380 courses open for play in 36 countries, with Jack Nicklaus involved in the design of 290 of the courses. At least 70 Nicklaus Design courses have been ranked by major industry publications.

Machynys, which was the last Nicklaus joint venture group golf resort to be opened in the UK

In 1967 Nicklaus was the runner-up to Roberto De Vicenzo at the Open in Hoylake, the last time it was held at the Royal Liverpool until Tiger Woods won there in 2006.

In 2012 Wirral council used the spotlight of the international media during the second day of the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Hoylake to re-launch its ambitious proposals to make Wirral a key golfing destination.

Council bosses had outlined their intentions to see a new “signature” golf course, five star hotel and spa, and conference facilities on the 300 acre site in Hoylake, much of which is already in council ownership.

Now the report set to be brought to Wirral council’s ruling cabinet on July 20 said “a golf resort in the proposed target area would build upon the England’s Golf Coast brand and address regional demand for a high quality associated hotel”.

Since the first masterplan for the golf resort was drawn up more than nine years ago, Wirral council has been working with consultants Capita Symonds looking at the landscape of the area, along with potential access to the site and possible funding for the scheme, and paving the way for planning permission, which would have to be sought by any developer

When the proposals were re-launched it was also revealed the project could be worth £30m-£40m a year for the local economy and at the launch in 2012 Wirral’s director of regeneration Kevin Adderley said value of the scheme could range from £40m-£70m, but is “only limited by the successful bidder’s aspirations”.

A council source said the value of the scheme would be “measured in the tens of millions” and said: “It’s a development not only for Wirral but the wider city region and the UK.”

Among the proposals is a Links Academy which the council source said would be the only one of its kind outside St Andrews, a Marriott hotel and the “signature” golf course

If approved by the cabinet it is hoped planning applications would be submitted late 2016, although these would have to be referred to the secretary of state.

No decision has been made on the golf resort’s name, but the ECHO understands it would feature “Hoylake” as part of it.

Not to everyone's taste ( but I personally like it) - this new office development ( a remodeling of an older building) 'The Tempest' on Tithebarn Street is nearing completion. it will have cafe/retail on ground level and a roof garden. Already 40% signed up with tenants:

The above ( Tempest) is pretty much finished now:




This is the site on Pall Mall which is to be developed into residential/work-live/office/leisure space. It is to be called North-Point - to signal its extension of the city centre north-wards towards what will be called the Pumpfields district.


The large red-brick warehouse to the right:







View across the road ( tobacco warehouse in view):













It should be on site in September

Great restoration!. Too many brutalist buildings are being demolished these days, so this is refreshing.

Yes! However the designs are far from finalised. There has been a public consultation and a wide range of views are being taken into consideration. I'm really very hopeful that this scheme, subject to approval, will be transformative for this end of the city - and will breathe much needed life back into the oldest China Town in Europe. There have been a number of false dawns; but hopefully this one will be a goer.

'Little Shanghai' is probably one of my favorite proposals for Liverpool, it's absolutely beautiful.

I also like the restoration of former factories, maritime buildings, it gives it a new lease of life and I just love that.

(Thank you Jane for keeping this thread running / and others)

New China Town looks like it may be underway shortly; as hoardings have gone up. The first phase is supposed to be complete by the end of 2016. The image is just indicative of massing - not fully finalised yet:

A few updates:

The expansion of Anfield ( football stadium) continues, with a huge 650 ton roof truss recently lifted into place. Its size and impact on the locality is immense - and it can even be seen as far away as Wales.






















The Gypsy International student development ( Byrom Street) is enormous:



Renovation of the old homeopathic hospital on Hope Street continues ( student....again):

Ambitious plans to transform Liverpool's Chinatown, to include up to 800 apartments, 120,000 sq ft of commercial and retail space, public spaces and a 140-bed hotel, have been submitted to the council.

Liverpool City Council has received a planning application seeking detailed consent for the first phase, with only outline permission sought for the second and third phases at this stage.

The application comes less than two months after a development and design team comprising Chinatown Development Company, PHD 1 Construction and BLOK Architecture with support from the UKTI Regeneration Investment Organisation were selected as preferred developers for the land at Great George Street and follows consultation with local residents and businesses.

Peter McInnes, chairman of Chinatown Development Company's parent company North Point Global, said: "During the bidding process, it was clear that the mayor and city council wanted rapid progress on a key site that has been vacant for too long.

"It was equally important that we took time to listen and consult with local people and come up with a development that realises the potential of this hugely important site on the edge of Chinatown."

Lead architect for the scheme Antonio Garcia said: "From the outset, we believed that the site needed a bold and ambitious solution that would reinvent and regenerate Chinatown. We need to capture and express the energy of Chinese culture and commerce and create a vibrant new destination in the city centre."

The proposed scheme aims to attract new Chinese businesses into the area through the creation of live-work, retail and commercial spaces. The development's commercial team claims it has already had enormous interest from Chinese-based businesses looking for a UK outlet.

McInnes said: "There is massive enthusiasm and excitement in China about this project. Liverpool is home to Europe's oldest Chinatown and the city has a strong brand and profile in China.

"We want to build on that to create a destination that is completely unique and that adds something radically different to the city's offer."

The consultation and engagement process is set to continue during the planning process.

Deputy mayor Ann O'Byrne said: "This site has tremendous potential to breathe new life into the wider area, creating new homes and jobs. The developer has come up with some extremely innovative ideas around developing links with China and the universities to bring a completely new commercial and retail offer to the area."

A decision on the planning application is likely to be made before the end of November 2015 with work on phase one due to start before the end of the year.
