Everton Stadium announcement is also expected soon as talks continue with Peel



The boss of Liverpool Waters says £300m of investments are imminent at the massive dockside site – and have revealed stunning new images of what the Central Docks area could look like.

Lindsey Ashworth, development director at Liverpool Waters, says the plan for the central part of the site is moving forward faster than originally planned.

Peel wants the Central Docks site to be a “world class business and leisure district”, including up to 1,000 waterfront apartments in buildings up to 44 storeys high. It also wants the Central Docks scheme to include 750,000sq ft of office space, as well as a public park.

So this morning Mr Ashworth told a crowd of investors at the Mipim international property conference in France that eight new plots of land were now being made available for development.

He also said Peel had already agreed terms with a developer for a new residential project on part of the Central Docks site, next to a new road the council is building to provide access to a new Isle of Man ferry terminal that will sit on the waterfront.

Together with the development already taking place at Princes Dock, that means £300m of projects are now in the pipeline.

And that’s without including the proposed Everton stadium at the north end of the site. Peel and Everton are still in talks over that plan and an announcement is expected soon.

How Liverpool Waters could look -how the Princes Dock cluster will look if all the planned towers are built

The £5.5bn Liverpool Waters plan was always expected to take decades to come to fruition but Mr Ashworth says the scheme is now progressing well.

He said: “Look at the projects that are moving forward – there are three residential towers in Princes Dock, there’s an office tower, there’s a cruise liner terminal, and then there’s the Isle of Man ferry, and we’ve got the other developers along the access road.

“One of these or all of them will start by the end of this year. There’s about £300m worth of projects about to start on site, partly going through the planning process, and by the end of the year at least one of them will have started. But by the end of next year they should have all started.”

Peel today released a new CGI of what Princes Dock could look like when those residential towers, including the 34-storey Moda Living tower, are complete.

Today Peel, which hosted an event in Cannes alongside Liverpool Waters agents GVA, also released some new CGIs of what Central Docks could look like. The buildings will be clustered around a 17-acre park.

The actual appearance of the buildings will be decided by the individual developers who buy or lease the land from Peel.

Mr Ashworth said: “There’s no development briefs. We’re just saying these are eight plots that are part of the Liverpool Waters masterplan.

“There’s over two million square metres of floorspace that’s part of that and we’re inviting developers to come along and talk to us about any particular plot.”

'Major visitor attraction' could be built at Kings Dock

The new Isle of Man ferry terminal on the waterfront is also set to include an “embassy” to promote the island to Liverpool and the rest of the UK.

Any development at the Central Docks site could spark a debate over Liverpool’s World Heritage status. Unesco last year said it wanted Peel “to reduce the urban density and height of the proposed development”, particularly the buildings planned for the central area.

Interesting that they've agreed terms for a residential development on central docks. Is that one of the ones we know about it something new?

Peel has released a new render and further details on their Wirral Waters development in Birkenhead. It's located on the opposite side of the River Mersey.



It includes:
  • Laird House - proposed 25,000 sq ft office block.
  • Residential developments at Northbank - Peel is working with two developers on 'high density' housing on the Wallasey side of the dock. That's the tower in the background.
  • Maritime Knowledge Hub - restoration of the Hydraulic Tower (the brown tower in the background) in partnership with LJMU and Mersey Maritime. It's the 'university of the sea', a centre with a focus on developing skills in the maritime sector.

A render showing the longer term future of Wirral Waters was also released today:

Everton agree deal for new stadium site

Everton have agreed a deal to acquire land on which to build a new £300m stadium in Liverpool, BBC Radio Merseyside understands.

The Premier League club and landowners Peel Holdings have reached agreement on the Bramley Moore Dock site near the River Mersey.

It was announced as the preferred site for the club's proposed new stadium in January.

Planning permission would have to be given for any future development.

Iranian businessman Farhad Moshiri bought a 49.9% stake in Everton in February last year and quickly outlined plans for a move from Goodison, which has a capacity of 39,572.

An initial plan was to build a stadium at Walton Hall Park, a short distance north-east of the club's current home, but it was strongly opposed by local residents.

Those plans were abandoned in May, with the club moving its attention to the site at Bramley Moore Dock.

Everton also abandoned plans to move to King's Dock in 2003, and Kirkby in 2009.

Liverpool increased Anfield's capacity to just over 54,000 with the opening of the stadium's Main Stand in September.

Analysis

Phil McNulty, BBC Sport chief football writer

This could be the most significant moment in Everton's recent history.

Goodison Park remains a gloriously atmospheric old arena but even the sentimentalists among Everton's support accept the time has come to move into a new era and new home in line with the ambitions of major shareholder Farhad Moshiri.

Moshiri, along with manager Ronald Koeman, sees this move as crucial to the plan to shift Everton into Europe's elite group, in a modern stadium offering greater profile, greater finances and greater attendances. The new stadium has been regarded as the key to a brighter future from the moment billionaire Moshiri arrived at the club in February last year.

It is also a major move on the way to a dream that has been a long time in the making for Everton and their supporters.
Everton were forced to abandon plans to build a new 55,000-capacity stadium at King's Dock in April 2003 after they could not raise around £30m to fund the £155m project, and a proposed relocation to a new ground in Kirkby failed amid much acrimony from supporters in 2009.

Now, with the backing of Moshiri's finances, Everton seem to be on course to finally move from Goodison Park to a new home in the city's iconic waterfront in the most compelling piece of evidence yet of the club's fierce new ambition.

The Hive - City Docks, Plaza 1821 and the Lexington seen together for the first time. We're hoping to see movement on all three of them this year.

What a great cluster for Liverpool. Which is most likely to start first? I always mix up the Princes Dock and broader Liverpool Waters schemes.

The taller building has planning permission and the other two are with the planners, they shouldn't have any trouble acquiring permission though. They're hopeful of getting all three on site this year in no particular order, maybe all at once? Nobody knows for sure. Princes Dock is the one nearest to the Pier Head by the way.

Major new Liverpool cruise terminal plans

Liverpool City Council is set to appoint a team to design a potential new cruise passenger terminal on the River Mersey.

The authority’s cabinet is being asked to endorse the selection team to scope out and develop a new permanent facility at the former Princes Jetty, off Princes Parade.

The council undertook a European wide search earlier in the year to explore how a new and bigger terminal could replace the current facility at the Pier Head, which opened in September 2007 and now generates more than £7m a year to the city’s economy.

The new passenger facility would sit just 300 metres north of the current one and would be able to handle a new generation of turnaround cruises carrying up to 3,600 passengers.

Last year Liverpool welcomed more than 60 vessels, with 120,000 passengers and crew, but wants to capitalise on the cruise industry boom by creating a new passenger and baggage terminal complete with passport control, lounge, café, toilets, taxi rank and vehicle pick up point.

And on Friday (April 21) the Cabinet will be asked to approve the plan to provide a comprehensive package for cruise passengers which could also potentially include a new 200 room hotel and 1,100+ multi-storey car park.

To enable the works the council is also in negotiations with the Duchy of Lancaster and Peel Land and Property to obtain new leases and purchase land.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: “Liverpool’s cruise industry has transformed our tourism appeal and given the Mersey a new lease of life.

‘’It has been one of the city’s great success stories of the past decade but we need to relocate if we are to welcome the next generation of super liners and give passengers a full five star experience.

“Appointing a technical team is a vital step in exploring how we achieve that move and if we can, we do it to the highest standards.

“A new cruise facility would also be a huge boost to our plans to transform the North Liverpool docklands and the support we’ve already received from the industry to the idea is hugely encouraging.’’

Following approval to appoint the technical team, the council will then submit an outline business case for a £20m contribution from the Liverpool Combined Authority’s Strategic Investment Fund (SIF) by Monday, 29 May.

If that stage is successfully passed, the project will then progress to the final stage, a full business case. The technical team will then work on the details of the projects with a view to an outline planning application being submitted later in the year.

Although the car park will be for the use of the Cruise Terminal, the council is reviewing locations north of Leeds Street, so it could also support initiatives around Ten Streets and North Docks areas.

The council recently approved a new £20m waterfront link road by extending Leeds Street and this is expected to begin construction by 2019.

Liverpool City Council is also carrying out further maritime and infrastructure investigations, environmental impact assessments and surveys and is working closely with Peel, which owns the Princes Jetty in its £5.5bn Liverpool Water scheme.

Liverpool was named the UK’s best port of call three times in 2013, 2014 and 2016 and scooped Destination of the Year by Seatrade Global in September 2015.

In 2016, Disney Cruise Line came to Britain for the first time and Liverpool was one of just two English destinations they sailed in to.http://www.goodnewsliverpool.co.uk/2...erminal-plans/

Proposals by Snook Architects for the redevelopment of a plot on Lightbody Street show the potential for new homes and a hotel, capitalising on the council’s emerging plans for a creative district at nearby Ten Streets.

Snook was commissioned to deliver a feasibility study for the 75,000 sq ft site at 4-6 Lightbody Street by owner Jackie Caddick, who plans to relocate her Water Witch boat-building business to be closer to a road network.

The landowner has had “productive talks with Liverpool City Council” about the proposals for the canalside plot, according to architect Neil Dawson, and GVA has been appointed to market the site to developers.

The colourful designs show the potential to build four blocks, and open up access to the canal. Three buildings have been designated residential and total 144 apartments, while the fourth could become a hotel.



The scheme includes rooftop uses, such as a restaurant on top of the hotel, and a heated pool, gym and garden with allotments.

Lightbody Street sits within the North Docklands area of the city, and the proposals seek to take advantage of the area’s status as the council’s next target area for regeneration.

On the other side of Great Howard Street, the council recently launched a consultation into the future of Ten Streets, a 125-acre stretch of land from the northern edge of the city centre to the vast Tobacco warehouse at Stanley Dock being converted into flats by Harcourt Developments.

While there are no detailed proposals, the council is putting together a masterplan to renovate the warehouses at Ten Streets into a district focused on the “creative economy”. The council has described Ten Streets as an ideal location for creative and digital businesses, and said it hopes to blend historic buildings with new schemes, with the successful Baltic Triangle referenced as an exemplar.

Many creative businesses are already established within Ten Streets and warehouses in the surrounding area. The comparison to Baltic has led to concern from tenants within Ten Streets that attempting to recreate the tech-led success of the Baltic area would be a missed opportunity. A formerly thriving industrial area, Ten Streets has historically been home to manufacturers.

Land deal for major TV & film hub



CAPITAL & CENTRIC has completed its acquisition of the former Littlewoods building and agreed a 250 year lease with Liverpool City Council to deliver a major hub for film, television and other creative industries.

The building was constructed during 1938 in an art deco style and was used to process the betting slips from the Football Pools – which was run by the Sir John Moores, with his brother Cecil, the owners of Littlewoods.

The buildings further importance is highlighted by the contribution made to the war effort when its vast internal spaces were enlisted in the national interest during WWII. At the outbreak of the war the building’s mighty printing presses were used to print some 17 million National Registration forms in just three days.

The floors of Halifax Bombers were assembled at the building as well as barrage balloons. Its design was such that it became the nerve centre of MC5, the government agency that intercepted and censored mail to break enemy codes. Bomb shelters in the basement areas of the building still contain artwork and graffiti on the walls dating from the 1941 Wartime Blitz.

The new land deal also includes an adjacent six acre development site on Edge Lane.

Tim Heatley of CAPITAL & CENTRIC said: “This acquisition marks an important milestone for us, it is the result of more than five years hard work and the next step in realising our vision for this high profile site.

“Liverpool City Council and the Homes & Communities agency have been very supportive of our plans for this iconic building, which forms an important gateway to the city. We’re excited at the opportunity to restore the Littlewoods Buildings and give it an exciting new lease of life that will put it on a national stage and finally give it the recognition that it deserves.

“Last year we completed the speculative redevelopment of the neighbouring Bunker building, which is now fully let. Bunker has successfully attracted a mix of media and tech companies that will inspire the future of our Littlewoods scheme and we can’t wait to get started.

“Our vision for the site is to see it not just become the heart of Liverpool’s vibrant film and media industry, but a draw to companies in this sector both nationally and internationally. We aren’t looking for companies interested solely in co-location, but in collaboration, to be a part of a hub that can fully capitalise on Liverpool’s world-class offer as a filming location.

“We are in the last throws of finalising the legal agreements with the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority for gap funding to secure the long-term future of this iconic structure. We already have a significant amount of occupier interest which is testament to the standing of the building, given we haven’t yet commenced any marketing activity.”

The next phase of development represents a £35m investment from CAPITAL & CENTRIC, the project once complete will create in excess of 350 new jobs.

Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, the Liverpool City Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration said: “We’re delighted that CAPITAL & CENTRIC have now completed the acquisition of the Littlewoods site. We are well aware of their excellent track record in delivering innovative buildings and I’m sure they will handle this vital piece of regeneration with sensitivity and great imagination.

“The digital and creative industries are a multi-billion pound growth opportunity for the Liverpool City Region over the next decade and this development represents a unique opportunity to further accelerate this sector. The City Council fully support the plans that CAPITAL & CENTRIC have drawn up and look forward to working closely with them as the scheme is delivered.”
