TRIQS City Spotlight: Liverpool

For our next edition of the TRIQS City Spotlight, we’ll be discussing the most exciting construction projects and developments taking place in Liverpool!

This comes after news that the Liverpool City Council will soon be discussing a plan for the Waterfront’s development over the next 15 years.

This area of Liverpool has already undergone a huge transformation over the years, including the creation of Liverpool ONE, the upgrades to Albert Dock and the M&S Bank Arena, and new plans will cover the potential housing schemes at Festival Gardens.

Alongside this, there will be further development to King’s Dock, the opening of the new Isle of Man ferry terminal, more investment in the new Everton stadium on Bramley-Moore Dock, and regeneration schemes for National Museums Liverpool and Tate Liverpool.

The next few years are certainly set to be exciting for Liverpool; they have also pledged to be net zero by 2030, which will impact which projects will take place.

More of the top construction projects in Liverpool include the £50m Liverpool Baltic train station, which will open on the old St James Site, and will help support goals to reduce car journeys and congestion in the area. 

Another key railway project in Merseyside is Headbolt Lane train station in Kirkby – this £80m scheme is designed for battery-powered services.

A further sustainable project in Liverpool is that of the Hemisphere building, which will be the city’s first net zero carbon workspace. The name comes from the two sides of the human brain, merging creativity and imagination with the academic and logical.

In a first, Hughes House (on the site of the former TJ Hughes building) will be funded by the BMO UK Housing Fund, which was set up to provide more affordable housing for key workers.
