I was a bit disappointed it didn't even make Granada News, something like this is news all day. I'd sooner see how they arrived than them fixed in place.

Hope for 5,000 new jobs as work starts on the first phase of Liverpool's new Health Campus.



Computer-generated image of a new 70,000 sq ft Liverpool Life Sciences Accelerator building that will house laboratory and office space for small and medium sized life sciences firms and research teams from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine

The first phase of a new health-related business ‘campus’ to be built on the site of the soon-to-be demolished Royal Liverpool University Hospital has been unveiled.

Construction work will start within a few days on a new 70,000 sq ft Liverpool Life Sciences Accelerator building that will house laboratory and office space for small and medium sized life sciences firms and research teams from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM).

The hope is that locating research scientists and businesses in the same building will promote closer cooperation and more commercial spin-offs.

Further buildings totalling 200,000 sq ft will house a similar mix of scientific research and commercial organisations in the future. When completed, the new buildings, to be known as the Liverpool Health Campus, are expected to be home to 5,000 well-paid science jobs.

The Accelerator building, to be built on Daulby Street, will open in June 2017. Two floors of the five-storey building will be occupied by around 70 of LSTM’s existing ‘resistance mitigation’ scientists, whose work includes playing a leading role in the global fight against the growing threat of antibiotic resistance. They are currently based in laboratories at the LSTM’s premises at Pembroke Place.

The Accelerator building will be built at a cost of £24.8m, funded by loans and cash from a variety of sources including the European Union and the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust.

Helen Jackson, director of strategy and transformation at the Trust, said: “The Accelerator will provide a hub for life sciences, enabling clinicians, academics and industry to collaborate in research and innovation to develop their ideas into the very latest life-saving treatments.

“This building is the first stage in a far-reaching development strategy that will define Liverpool’s future economy as a world leader in life sciences and boost regeneration of the knowledge quarter area of the city.”

Professor Janet Hemingway, director of LSTM, said: “LSTM was one of the first institutions in the world to recognise the importance of studying and understanding the phenomenon of drug resistance.

“With a proven track record of industry partnership and ground breaking, lifesaving research, the Accelerator will allow us to further boost Liverpool’s reputation as a world renowned centre of expertise. The collaboration with the Royal and SMEs will benefit global health by taking research and innovation from the lab to where it is needed most and will encourage further investment in Liverpool.”

Hotel operator Signature Living starts work on new mixed use development in Liverpool city centre

Liverpool hotel developer and operator Signature Living has acquired a building in Liverpool’s commercial district and is set to make its first foray into the office market.

The company behind the 30 James Street and Shankly Hotels has paid £1.8m for 60 Old Hall Street and will now bring forward a multi-million pound plan to create a mixed-used development.

Comprising 49,991 sq ft of space across eight storeys, the building used to form part of the headquarters of Littlewoods, before it relocated to South Liverpool.

Signature Living founder, Lawrence Kenwright, told the ECHO: “It is currently the ugliest building on Old Hall Street and we are going to transform it.

“We are going to infill below to create three extra floors and add two floors on the top. We are going to create a glass box gymnasium for use by the residents.”

Mr Kenwright added the building would offer residential space, serviced apartments, ground floor retail and grade A office space.

He anticipates the multi-million pound project will take around nine months to complete with preliminary work already starting.

“This will be our first development with office space,” he said.

“There is currently 2.1m sq ft of empty office space in Liverpool but not enough of it is quality accommodation.

“Liverpool is doing very well in the tourism sector but we need to create more grade A office space for the business market, too.

“The city has fallen behind in terms of office rents and this is deterring developers coming in from the outside to create new grade A space.”

It has been vacant for some years and, prior to its sale, former owner Commercial Estates Group had drawn up proposals to remodel the building.

As well as the Shankly Hotel and 30 James Street, Signature also operates serviced apartments in other areas of the city centre. It is also targeting an expansion drive across the UK.

Rupert Barron, partner of commercial agents WHR Property, added: “60 Old Hall Street is indicative of where the market currently stands. Vacant buildings being brought back into use is a strong indication of recovery, which has been rippling out of London, into the regions with Liverpool attracting its share of attention.

“We had a number of interested parties that were looking at alternative uses, such as residential for PRS or Student. Many of these were locally based developers, which understand the Liverpool market.”

Doesn't look sensational, but does looks attractive enough and would certainly add some weight to the skyline. Whether they'd get it through planning is another matter!

Sorry - wasn't sure where to post this.

Will try and get a pic of the CGI to post.

Chinese developer signs secret deal with English council, FT says

By Chris Peterson(chinadaily.com.cn)

A Northwest English council is going ahead with a development deal with a Chinese company even though the original UK firm behind a 175 million pound scheme has ended its joint venture with the Chinese conglomerate, Beijing-based Sam Wa, the Financial Times reported.

The Peel Group has ended its joint venture with Sam Wa by mutual consent and is now seeking potential investors from South Korea and India, the newspaper reported, citing the Manchester-based developer.

The original plan by the two companies was to build an international trade centre on the Wirral, on the banks of the River Mersey in northwest England, which was to have housed 1,000 Chinese companies attracted by the prospect of doing business in the UK in a tax-friendly zone, the UK said.

Peel owns most of the waterfront land on the Mersey, much of it former docklands, and is going ahead with a development in the area called Wirral Waters, which so far includes an education facility and an office block.

The Wirral Council has decided to continue the scheme, agreeing to sell a piece of land formerly owned by the Ministry of Defence to Sam Wa earlier this month, although it is refusing to release details, citing council rules and commercial confidentiality, the FT reported.

The newspaper said Wirral Council, at the same meeting on November 5, agreed to set up a 16 million pound investment fund to help kick-start the rest of the Wirral Waters development.

Sam Wa was founded and is chaired by Stella Shiu, and Wirral Council leader Phil Davies told the newspaper "Sam Wa, who at an earlier stage were going to be partnering with Peel, are now looking to invest all the money themselves."

The council said the sale of the land to Sam Wa would go ahead after due diligence checks on Sam Wa had been carried out.

Revealed: Plans for 60 Old Hall street to include roof top gym


Plans for 60 Old Hall street have been exclusively revealed to the ECHO - including a rooftop gym.

The building, once named “the ugliest building on Old Hall Street,” was recently sold to city centre hotel developer Signature Living for £1.8m.

Now, the company has revealed images of their plans, which include golden cladding and a curved exterior.

Inside, the development will contain residential space, serviced apartments, office space and a ground floor retail unit.

Plans also include a roof-top gym housed inside a glass box structure, which will also contain a running track.

The project is the first time Signature Living have entered the office market having previously developed a number of high-end hotels and serviced apartments in the city.

Co-founder of Signature Living, who also developed 30 James St and the Shankly Hotel, Lawrence Kenwright says he hopes the multi-million pound project will be completed in around nine months.

He said: “This will be our first development with office space.

“There is currently 2.1m sq ft of empty office space in Liverpool but not enough of it is quality accommodation.

“60 Old Hall Street, which forms part of Liverpool’s thriving commercial district, will become a landmark building with our redevelopment. We’re really looking forward to getting underway on this project.”

Two new attractions planned at Knowsley Safari

Knowsley Safari Park has announced plans for a £1.5m project to deliver a new five-acre tiger habitat and a Safari Drive lodge, both designed by Cass Architects.

The tiger enclosure will form a central area for the existing walkaround, while the lodge will include elevated views from timber platforms over the animal enclosures.

Knowsley Safari Park currently houses two Amur tigers. The habitat will be built around naturally flowing water and will incorporate existing woodland.

A planning application has been submitted to Knowsley Council. If approved, work will begin in spring 2016 and is expected to take up to four months

Edward Perry, director of operations, said: “The addition of the Safari Drive Lodge has been in planning for a long time and will give visitors the chance to stop off mid-drive, get out of their cars and have a more rounded view of the landscape and animals at Knowsley Safari.

“The design process has been carefully considered and inspired by the distinct, historic character of the Park at a time prior to the establishment of Knowsley Safari. It will include natural planting that will re-introduce blocks of woodland to fit the landscape sensitively, while the positioning of the lodge has been carefully selected to provide extensive views of the landscape and water that attracts the animals.”
