Concert Square, Liverpool (221)

221 - Adding value with new public space

The development was carried out in conjunction with the City council. It took an empty chemical factory and derelict back street and by sacrificing development space, created an urban square with a mix of new vibrant uses.

This transformed a former derelict area into a city centre place where people want to live, work and spend their leisure time. The development saw the creation of a piazza providing open air concert and exhibition space, a mix of bars, restaurants, night clubs, photo gallery, offices and 18 loft style apartments.

It is estimated that this development has created some 180 jobs. This scheme has received a number of awards including from the British Urban Regeneration Association, the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Merseyside Civic Society.
