Planning awarded for £160 million scheme 

International design practice Woods Bagot will transform the derelict land adjacent to Liverpool’s Central Station into the “go-to” destination for the North West consisting of a £160m shopping, residential and leisure development. The mixed use project is one of the biggest regeneration schemes ever planned for the North West of England at 600,000 sq ft. Work is scheduled to commence in January 2007. " I do feel this is a real triumph of place making as the key design driver, married to wonderful occurrence where the 18th century meets the 21st. The challenge was to design a landmark configuration for the local urban fabric, with a finer grain and a legible typology. The scheme is a rigorously resolved design, and it will be a unique piece of urban design and architecture of lasting quality and value for Liverpool . The fact that we have been able to distil the " big ask" from a number of very disparate stakeholders is a credit to all the players on the Liverpool Central Team " Stephan C Reinke RIBA FAIA, Principal Designer
