Liverpool Waters is a major regeneration scheme spanning nearly 30 years and costing more than £5 billion.
Developer Peel L&P, who is leading the transformation of the city’s northern docklands, is currently considering a series of revisions of the scheme’s masterplan.
It currently has outline planning consent for 20 million sq ft of mixed-use development across a 60-hectare site.
Let’s review some of the £880 million construction projects already underway at Liverpool Waters and the firms appointed to them.
Laing O’Rourke is the main contractor for Everton Football Club’s new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.
Started in August 2021, the new stadium is set to open in time for the 2024–25 season, replacing Goodison Park.
Stadium architecture specialists MEIS and BDP designed the new venue to accommodate spectator capacity of nearly 53,000.
Development began with backfilling Bramley-Moore Dock with sand dredged from the Irish Sea.
The cost is around £500 million.
Isle of Man ferry terminal
John Sisk is the main contractor for the project at the Princes Half Tide Dock.
The £70 million scheme had an initial budget of £38 million in 2019.
But the pandemic, high winds and poor weather created a “testing environment”, pushing delivery back.
The scheme, due to ferry up to 1,000 people between the Isle of Man and the UK, had been due to complete in June 2022.
Mauretania and Aquitania
Property developer Romal Capital is leading these two apartment developments at Central Docks.
Newry Construction is the main contractor on both.
Mauretania, at West Waterloo Place, has 128 flats and is due to complete in Q1 2025.
Nearby Aquitania is due to complete around the same time and boasts 135 apartments.
Vermont Construction Group is the main contractor for this 31-storey residential tower by developer X1.
The plans, put forward by Your Housing Group (YHG), will see 278 homes built at Princes Dock.
It is one of five new neighbourhoods being created at the waterfront.
Central Park, a new green space spanning 1.9 hectares, was also recently approved in March, supporting delivery of approximately 2,350 homes.

- Planit-IE – Master Planners, Landscaping and Urban Design, Visualisation
