Was this the one where Unesco threatened to removed the world heritage status from Liverpool if they built?

Wow, Beetham's starting to look lost amongst all these proposals. Exciting times. Looking forward to seeing some of these big proposals turning into reality.

A masterplan for the 31 acre site is being refreshed to help shape and support a once in a lifetime opportunity to achieve a landmark private sector led development which would drive the regeneration of Birkenhead by reconnecting it to the waterfront.

Wirral Council is leading on the redevelopment of the Woodside Waterfront. The masterplan envisages a central spine of development linking the waterfront from Woodside Ferry Terminal into central Birkenhead. This spine provides an opportunity for a range of new buildings to provide a mixed use development that will include new leisure, residential, hotel and office accommodation planned around a series of quality public spaces and an enhanced public realm to strengthen the link from Wirral’s waterfront to its commercial and shopping areas.

The development offer could include:

• Upmarket hotel
• Creation of quality public spaces
• Commercial / mixed use / restaurants / bars /residential
• Over 65,000 sqm commercial floor space, 200 bed hotel,
over 580 residential units and 450 car parking spaces.


The image in this brochure matches up with this image I posted a few weeks back but shows us a bit more of the area. The Birkenhead plans look increasingly concrete and likely to happen especially with the likes of Muse with Morgan Sindall and Scarborough with BCEGI looking to get on board. Could this be the start of a Birkenhead renaissance?

Following the publication of a spatial framework for development within the emerging Knowledge Quarter, KQ Liverpool has set out a plan for the future of transport infrastructure within the city.

Writing in the introduction to KQ Liverpool’s Transport Vision document, chief executive Colin Sinclair said: “At 450 acres, the KQ Liverpool Mayoral Development Zone is almost half of the city centre, so what we do here with transport will impact across the city region and beyond. Using the very latest technology, we want to make our city the best connected and easiest to access in the UK.

“The proposal here, to attract a futuristic transport pilot, is just the start of what we can achieve together.”

Key priorities set out in the document include the opening of a station to serve the Knowledge Quarter, a ‘green grid’ of enhanced walking and cycling routes and the introduction of a new street-level transport system. It is made clear that the 20-minute uphill walk from Lime Street to the edges of the Knowledge Quarter count against the area in accessibility terms.

As far as the station is concerned, the proposal is to connect Edge Hill station to the east of the Knowledge Quarter to Central Station by bringing the existing Wapping Tunnel back into use.

The document references several cities for possible inspiration with street transport as it seeks to deliver a high frequency, convenient transit route – the Boulevard Carnot raised busway in Cannes, which has the flexibility to be adapted for trams; Tallinn, where driverless shuttle buses were trialled this summer; and Tampa’s streetcar system, which links 11 stops in a 2.7-mile route.

Liverpool’s proposal for Liverpool is the Lime Line, which would run from Lime Street through the Knowledge Quarter, with a second phase that would directly link all the areas included – proposed stops include Sensor City, the Royal and Paddington Village – through the lower part of the city to the waterfront.

A similar system to Tampa’s could be a relatively low-cost project complementing Merseyrail, the report observes: “A similar transport link for Liverpool would not need to be a citywide network with multiple lines, as Merseyrail already does that.”

Revised plans for Via Verde to be submitted in December

Mees Demolition Group has completed clearance of the 700,000 sq ft Via Verde site in Liverpool to make way for more than 1,300 apartments, with a revised planning application due to be submitted by the end of the year.

The former DP Watson Building has been demolished and the site cleared over an eight-week period to allow a new proposal for Via Verde to go ahead.

The site on the corner of Leeds Street and Vauxhall Road has been long mooted as a major residential development in Liverpool, with plans for Via Verde first approved in 2008.

Eldonian Property proposed to build than 400 homes and office space at Via Verde, with the scheme given the green light by the council, despite it being recommended for rejection by planning officers.

However, this development was never progressed. Eldonian then submitted a second planning application in 2016, including 914 residential apartments across five blocks ranging between four and 12 storeys in height.

The 2016 application, which had Day Architectural and planner Knight Frank in its professional team, also included 28,000 sq ft of commercial space; 6,600 sq ft of retail space; and a rooftop restaurant.

Mees Property Group is now acting as developer, replacing Eldonian Projects, and is aiming to submit a revised planning application for the project in December this year.

Mees plans to start the project in spring 2018, subject to planning approval, and will potentially also act as main contractor.

The latest proposal includes 1,308 apartments across five blocks varying between 18 and 21 storeys in height. There will be 468 one-bed apartments, 468 two-beds, 234 studios, 78 three-beds and 60 town houses.

As well as residential accommodation, the development will also provide 55,000 sq ft of commercial space at ground floor and mezzanine level, spread across all five blocks, and 682 parking spaces.

Thomas Mee, director at Mees Demolition Group said: “This site, often referred to as Via Verde, is the largest on the new northern boundary that is creating space for the expansion of the business district as well as providing a range of residential properties.

“My team pride ourselves on dismantling and clearing sites of all sizes on time and this vast site was no different with us coming in on time so the next stage of development can take place.”

Race starts for Liverpool cruise terminal construction work

Liverpool City Council has issued tender documents to recruit a main contractor for its £50m cruise terminal, paving the way for work to start on site in March next year.

The council is looking to appoint a main contractor for the new cruise liner terminal at Princes Jetty, to work alongside structural engineer Ramboll, architect Stride Treglown, cost manager Gardiner & Theobald, planner JLL, and landscape architect Hyland Edgar Driver. Aecom is also working on the project, supervising site investigation works.

The new cruise liner terminal is part of the city’s plans to capitalise on increased cruise traffic after the current terminal welcomed more than 120,000 passengers and crew in 2016.

A main contractor for the project will be appointed on a two-stage basis. This will include early contractor involvement during the design development, followed by the award of a main contract once the contract value has been finalised.

The total value of the works is currently estimated at £50m.

Work on the site will involve the controlled dismantling of the existing structures on the site, including Princes Jetty, and the construction of a new terminal on a suspended deck structure.

A new vehicle and pedestrian bridge will also link the new terminal to an existing landing stage. The contractor will also modify other existing buildings including the lower cruise terminal reception building and improve public realm as part of the works.

Once a contractor is appointed, work is scheduled to get underway in March and complete by the end of March 2020.

The council held a public consultation on the plans in September.

Everton exchange contracts on Bramley Moore Dock

Everton have exchanged contracts on Bramley Moore Dock.

The Blues have formally signed an agreement to secure a 200-year lease on the proposed site of their new stadium and can now focus firmly on securing funding and gaining planning permission.

A statement released by the Blues described the news as “a significant milestone in the project and means Everton effectively now controls the land upon which a new stadium would be built.”

Blues Chief Executive, Robert Elstone, said: “Clearly this is very positive news.

“Gaining control of the site was essential for us to be able to move forward with the next stages of the project – finalising the funding agreement with the Council and preparing for the submission of a planning application - both of which we hope to do in the New Year.

“I’d like to thank Peel as well as Mayor Anderson and his colleagues at the Council for their support in getting us to this point.”

The Blues hierarchy, and architect Dan Meis, must now submit a “detailed” planning application to the Council - with the hope of receiving planning permission.

The statement read: “Everton Stadium Development Limited (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Everton Football Club) and Peel Land and Property (Ports) Limited have formally signed an agreement for the Club to lease land at Bramley Moore Dock, Liverpool Waters.

“The lease, which is conditional upon gaining planning consent for the proposed new stadium and securing funding for its construction, will run for a period of 200 years at a peppercorn rent.”

The proposed new stadium will be a catalyst for £5.5bn worth of regeneration proposals for North Liverpool which is set to be one of the largest and most transformational in the city’s history.

The stadium will help accelerate Peel Land and Property’s Liverpool Waters development - which stretches along Liverpool’s waterfront and is made up of five neighbourhoods.

The new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock will be complemented by a host of leisure amenities and facilities.

Plans also include two new river terminals – a new cruise liner facility as well as the Isle of Man ferry terminal – and a range of office and residential developments alongside a waterfront cultural complex.

Ian Pollitt, Assistant Project Director at Liverpool Waters, said: “2017 has been a landmark year for Liverpool Waters with a series of planning permissions granted for both Princes Dock and Central Dock, including the plans for a new cruise terminal and a collection of residential developments.

“We know that a world-class stadium, on the banks of the River Mersey, will act as a trigger for even more investment and jobs which will be of huge benefit to the whole city region. We’ve been working very closely with all partners to get to this stage and we’re excited to move on to the next phase of the project.”

CBRE, who are acting as advisers to Everton, estimate that a new stadium at Bramley Moore will provide a £1bn boost to the local economy, with a contribution of more than £900m to the region before the stadium is even completed.

The huge financial boost to Liverpool’s economy will see more than £255m spent through local supply chains during the construction phase and once completed, the creation of more than 15,000 jobs for local people and an annual boost to the city of £94m through hotel occupancy, retail and tourism.

Iain Jenkinson, Senior Director, Planning and Development at CBRE said: “This scheme is hugely significant, not just for Everton and for Peel’s Liverpool Waters project, but for the entire city region. The social and economic impact presented by this once-in-a-generation opportunity will be a game-changer for the city.

“And it’s a game-changer not only in terms of the measurable regeneration benefits to the city through jobs, supply chain contracts and all the other benefits associated with a large-scale project, but also through the unique ‘brand value’ that will be development will bring to the city through having what will become a globally recognised stadium on one of the world’s most famous and spectacular waterfronts.”

Peel was advised by Iain Gamble and Luke Taylor at Brabners on all property matters with Colette McCormack at Winckworth Sherwood advising on planning aspects of the deal.

Hoylake Golf Resort plans could move a step closer

Plans to create a major new golf, leisure and housing development in Hoylake could move a step closer this month.

The proposed Hoylake Golf Resort will see two new championship golf courses built, as well as a luxury hotel and conference centre.

Celtic Manor, the company behind the South Wales luxury resort which hosted the 2010 Ryder Cup and 2014 NATO summit, is on board to manage the entire attraction.

If approved by Wirral Council’s cabinet on 18 December, the complex would include the only Jack Nicklaus designed municipal course in the country.

A report to the cabinet details the next steps to progress the proposals, including the council expectation that the developers complete the planning and various site investigations at their cost and risk.

The plans also outline the funding options being proposed and indicates the returns the council could expect to see through leveraging its assets and covenant strength.

It also provides the full financial proposal for how the development will be delivered and, subject to it being agreed at the meeting on 18 December, will allow for a full planning application to be submitted in 2018.

Councillor Phil Davies says: “The Hoylake Golf Resort will be a flagship development which will create hundreds of jobs for local people and support businesses across the borough.

“As a globally significant tourism and leisure attraction, it will support growth in our vibrant tourism economy and attract thousands of additional visitors to Wirral every year.

“Building on the success of the 2006 and 2014 British Open Championships at neighbouring Royal Liverpool Golf Club Hoylake, the golf resort will cement Wirral’s leadership position with the international golf community, benefitting from the visitors, tourism revenues and global attention that recognition will bring with it.

“However, it is more than simply two new golf courses. Hoylake Golf Resort will be a key leisure destination with a high-end hotel, restaurants, spa and conference facilities. It will prove to be an attractive offer for international conferences and similar events.”
