Central Docks plans boast 1,000 homes and 186,000 sq m of mixed use floorspace

Peel Holdings has revealed new details of its £5bn redevelopment of Liverpool’s historic waterfront, masterplanned by Chapman Taylor Architects.

It said Liverpool Waters’ eight-plot Central Docks phase would deliver more than 1,000 homes in towers of up to 44 storeys, as well as 186,000 sq m of commercial space close to the floating Liverpool Cruise Terminal. The proposals also include a 7ha public park.

While Chapman Taylor continues to be involved in aspects of the project, which has been in development for the past 10 years, the practice told BD it was not involved with the latest Central Docks phase.

Detailing the Central Docks proposals at the Mipim conference yesterday, Liverpool Waters development director Lindsey Ashworth said it marked “the next chapter” in the story of the 60ha development.

“Our ambition has always been to create a waterfront for the world, a sustainable environment with stunning views where people and businesses can flourish together,” he said.

“Unveiling this southern part of the Central Docks neighbourhood brings us one step closer to re-establishing Liverpool’s waterfront as a gateway to the world.”

Liverpool Waters’s footprint covers a 2.3km stretch of the city’s historic dockland waterfront to the west of Pier Head. Around half of it is within the city’s World Heritage Site catchment area.

  • Another year another hobbled together image of the mythical 'Liverpool Waters'. What a surprise it's Mipim time again. Tell you what Peel how about employing good architects for a change?
