ATTENTION TO DETAIL PUTS LIVERPOOL ONE STREETS AHEAD
WITH its Phase
1 launch just a matter of weeks away on 29 May 2008, Liverpool ONE,
the £1bn retail and leisure regeneration of the heart of Liverpool
city centre, is set to inspire pride and passion into the hearts of
people across the whole of the North West.
The reconnection of the city to its historic waterfront coupled new
and exciting retail opportunities is already making waves amongst
shoppers and retailers alike. The project is also turning the heads
of national design commentators with it’s attention to detail that
is far beyond the scope of most urban regeneration schemes.
With the 5 acre Chavasse Park at the heart of the development,
underneath lies a much demanded 2000 capacity car park tucked out of
sight to give shoppers easy access to the city centre once again.
Avoiding the pitfalls of previous generations of subterranean car
parks, Liverpool ONE has award-winning architects employed to ensure
that walkways and stairs within the underground network are all
given natural daylight flooding through a glass floor that acts as a
key feature of the park itself. Already being hailed by BBC Radio 4
as an innovation worthy of awards its sure to turn the heads of
those who think that Liverpool ONE is a shopping mall like a
Trafford Centre or a Bluewater.
Then there’s the piazza above South John Street overlooking the
park. By Phase 2 launch in September this will be filled with a
throng of people enjoying coffee and perhaps a drink sheltered by a
state of the art aerodynamic glass structure allowing people the
opportunity to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine the city has to
offer throughout the day and long into the evening.
Liverpool ONE is full of innovations such as this that reinforce our
commitment to a long term future for the city. The fact that it will
be appealing to people from all over the North West only goes to
show that Liverpool ONE is, from the largest to the smallest detail, set to put this beautiful historic city right back on the map. So
much so that Liverpool is predicted to rise in ranking from 16th to
Top 5 in terms of retail and leisure offerings in the UK.
