After acquiring The Mersey Docks and Harbour Company in 2006, The Peel Group set to work on Liverpool Waters, an ambitious 30-year vision to comprehensively transform the city’s northern docks. Regenerating a 60-hectare stretch to create a world-class, high-quality, mixed-use waterfront quarter in central Liverpool and bringing life back to the historic docklands.
Working in partnership with Liverpool City Council, the UK Government and other stakeholders, Liverpool Waters secured outline planning permission in 2013, with approximately 2,000,000 sq.m. of development floorspace including 9,000 residential units, 315,000 sq.m. of business space and 53,000 sq.m. of hotel and conference facilities.
