10th scheme in Liverpool in last five years
- Parking in centre of Liverpool
- Includes retail space
- Part of £100m work transforming Liverpool
- 60% budget spent locally
Our Liverpool team have delivered much need new parking space capacity in the centre of the city.
Procured via Scape, the team converted a former ground level car park into a four floor multi-storey version that provides 333 car spaces including 15 motorcycle spaces and 28 cycle spaces. The 24/7 365 days a year car park also provides three electric vehicle charging bays as more and more road users opt for electric.
Adjoining the car park is a three-storey retail and leisure build, complete with a rooftop terrace, which has capacity for outdoor seating on a widened pavement area.
The scheme, funded by Liverpool City Council, will reduce congestion and pollution caused by the former 121 space car park which did not publicise spaces and caused motorists to circle the site waiting for an available spot.
Clad in coursed stone with large glazed openings, our new car park will also lead to a new tree planting programme around the Victoria Street area.
Mayor Joe Anderson (above), who drove the first electric car into the new car park, said:
“Victoria Street plays a vital role in our city centre for shoppers, diners and visitors and this high quality car park will provide a huge boost for surrounding businesses such as the Metquarter and for guests staying at numerous nearby hotels. As we’re gearing up for Christmas I thought users would welcome a free week to give a little help with their shopping spend and give them the choice of supporting those less well off than themselves."
Anthony Dillon, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the North West:
"We are delighted to have handed over our latest project for Liverpool City Council. As ever our focus has been on making sure that local people and businesses also benefit with at least 40 per cent of our budget spent within the city."
