Liverpool One, a partnership between Grosvenor Estates and Liverpool City Council, is a 42-acre, mixed-use, retail-led regeneration project in the centre of the City of Liverpool. Site 3 is located on the eastern side of the development and consists of a three-storey specialty department store and the remodeling and refurbishment of two Grade ll listed former warehouse.
“This is the most exciting regeneration development currently taking place in the country. It will transform the city centre and is key to Liverpool's remarkable renaissance.”
Sir Joe Dwyer Liverpool City Vision
The site forms the apex of a triangular urban block formed by the junction of two very different urban contexts: Hanover St and College Lane. Along Hanover Street, the new trabeated brickwork facade and projecting roof lanterns responds to the scale and character of the robust warehouse buildings to the south of the site. On College Lane, the building is set back to create a series of faceted terraces, which respond to the scale and character of the neighbouring Grade I listed Bluecoats Chambers.
The adjacent warehouses which were previously derelict have been repaired, restored and extended providing them with a new lease of life. A pedestrian route from Hanover Street to College Lane provides permeability through the block and maintains the previous historic connection.
