Peel reveals plans for next phase of Liverpool Waters

Liverpool waterfront

Developer Peel has unveiled plans for the next phase of its Liverpool Waters scheme, announcing the release of eight new construction plots.

The firm said the eight plots in the Central Docks area were attracting interest from investors and developers, with several groups already visiting Liverpool to see the opportunities on offer.

Peel said it has already signed up a developer for a residential scheme and expects more than £300m of construction work to be underway across the historic docklands site by the end of the year.

Central Docks Park

The Central Docks neighbourhood forms part of the £5bn scheme to transform 150 acres in the biggest regeneration project in the history of Liverpool.

Peel hopes Central Docks will be built out with more than two million sq ft of mixed-use floorspace including 750,000 sq ft of offices and more than 1,000 new waterfront apartments.

Lindsey Ashworth, director of development of Liverpool Waters, said: “Liverpool Waters is a unique opportunity to invest in a world-famous waterfront and it’s no surprise that this latest phase of the project has already generated interest from investors and developers.”

Central Docks’ eight plots

Although the masterplan for Liverpool Waters was announced 10 years ago, progress has so far concentrated on the Prince’s Dock neighbourhood, the new home of the Cruise Liner Terminal, with the bulk of effort going on behind the scenes to secure detailed planning permissions.

Ian Pollitt, assistant project director at Liverpool Waters, said: “Central Docks represents a watershed moment for Liverpool Waters.

“There has been an incredible amount of work done behind the scenes to get us to this point but thanks to the positive attitude of the people of Liverpool, Liverpool City Council and other partners we are now in a position to proceed with this next exciting phase of the project.”
