Liverpool city centre is set for a 2,400 jobs boost as part of transformational plans for Pall Mall Liverpool.
Developers Kier Property and CTP Ltd have released a new CGI image revealing the latest design for the £200m development in the heart of the Commercial Business District.
The proposals will see the redevelopment of the overspill car park at Pall Mall and the open space behind the Exchange Station building to create 400,000 sq ft of new Grade A office space, a 280 bedroom hotel, associated retail and leisure amenities, all set within attractive city centre gardens linked to a network of green corridors.
The 400,000 sq ft office-led development will be the first new Grade A office space built in Liverpool since 2011.
The latest Commercial Office Market Review, an independent report produced by Liverpool BID (Business Improvement District) and Professional Liverpool highlights the lack of Grade A office space availability in Liverpool which is now becoming a major barrier to business growth and attracting more businesses to the City and the Liverpool City Region.
Henry Martin, Development Manager at Kier Property, said; “Our vision for Pall Mall Liverpool is to set a benchmark for working environments in Liverpool by creating a distinct city centre destination for workers, residents and visitors to enjoy.
“The plans include extensive public realm, including a central green space the equivalent size of Williamson Square and a significant increase in the number of trees and planted areas.
“We are committed to ongoing consultation with the local community and are looking forward to sharing our final plans with stakeholders and members of the public, before submitting a planning application later this month.”
- Members of the public are invited to attend consultation events on Tuesday, 18 and Wednesday, 19 June at 5 St Paul’s Square:
- The first event will run between 8am and 1pm
- The second event will run between 1pm and 7pm
For anyone unable to attend either of the events, further information can be found via the website www.pallmallliverpool.co.uk (which will be updated on 18 June.)
The Pall Mall consultation will coincide with one regarding a vision document on the CBD area, which covers 40 acres of Liverpool city centre and is home to many blue chip and well-known companies. That document is set to go out to public consultation in mid-June for five weeks.
