Our ambitious plans for Liverpool’s Chinatown

Author: blokadmin Date: Jul 12, 2015

This week our £200m pound vision to breathe life into Liverpool’s Chinatown and the surrounding area has been unveiled to the public.

Our plans for the vacant Tribeca fields were unveiled by developers North Point Global at a public exhibition and featured across regional and national media.

The land, which lies in the shadow of the Anglican Cathedral, will be transformed into a huge residential and retail development that will transform the crucial gateway into the city centre.

Marketed as ‘New Chinatown’ the scheme will see the creation of 800 homes, 200,000 sq ft of shops and as many as 1,000 jobs and will include a Chinese-themed retail area and one of the key aims of the scheme is to re-establish a resident Chinese population in the area.

Welcoming the proposals Deputy Mayor, Cllr Ann O’Byrne, said: “This is a key site in Chinatown right on a main route into the city centre and has fantastic potential, particularly as it lies so close to the city centre and the Baltic Triangle.”

BLOK director Antonio Garcia describes the project as “an historic opportunity to be the catalyst for the regeneration of Chinatown”.

He said: “One of the most important elements of our vision, which we have developed with our Chinese investors, is the creation of up to 200 new Chinese businesses with the potential to create over 1,000 jobs. We view this as one of the most important and potentially transformational development opportunities in Liverpool.”

North Point Global will oversee the work after concluding a deal to buy an interest in the site held by Urban Splash.
