We were asked by Grosvenor, the international property company, to help mark the 10th anniversary of their groundbreaking re-development of the centre of Liverpool that the city is marking this year. We worked with senior executives at Grosvenor and visited the city to help craft an account of its redevelopment that would show what a significant achievement it was
Grosvenor were determined that Liverpool ONE would show that idea of place can be a driver for large scale, city centre urban regeneration. They worked to develop the project in such a way that it seamlessly linked the development to the city’s existing grain and street pattern rather than build a single, monolithic block that followed the design of one master planner.
The result is a 250,000 m² development that Grosvenor Europe now manages, includes more than 200 shops, some 700 apartments, two hotels, 25 restaurants, a 14-screen Odeon cinema, four office buildings, a unique five-acre public park, 2,000 car parking spaces and a public transport interchange.
The report appears as a blog on the front page of the Grosvenor website that carries a great deal of other material about ONE.
