Sitting immediately next to the £5.5bn Liverpool Waters scheme and within the city’s Atlantic Corridor, Ten Streets is set to become a new “creativity district” for start-up creative businesses, including artists, independent creatives, makers and digital and technology sectors.
The scheme will see circa 125 acres of former dockland between the northern edge of the city centre and the landmark Tobacco warehouse at Stanley Dock and just beyond, transformed with up to 1 million square feet of development, delivering around 2,500 new jobs.
It will attract creative companies and enterprises to flourish alongside artistic organisations, and will include the UK’s first revolving theatre inside a stunning new performance venue. As a creative economy district, Ten Streets will complement other employment areas like the Knowledge Quarter, Commercial District and Liverpool Waters.
The vision for Ten Streets is based on Ten Big Ideas which aim to nurture the assets and opportunities unique to this part of the city – stunning maritime architecture, a diverse commercial and industrial heritage and a pivotal location. The area has already become an established events destination thanks to the trailblazing work of Kazimier, Cream and Sound City. Meanwhile, heritage, history and character are some of Ten Streets most precious assets and will be the foundations for the area’s new identity.
Following a competitive tender process, Liverpool City Council has procured HOW Planning and shedkm to produce a Spatial Regeneration Framework (SRF) to set out what can be achieved in the district.
