    Grosvenor is in advanced talks over the sale of another plot at its Liverpool One retail-led regeneration project.

    The sale involves a multi-storey car park with ground floor retail on the corner of Hanover Street and Seel Street along with a surface car park to the rear.

    The combined area is around 1.5 acres and the buyer is a developer who will demolish the car park and deliver a mixed-use leisure-led project in its place. Grosvenor expects to announce the deal in the coming few weeks, with the buyer due on site by December 2008.

    The site is adjacent to the Novotel hotel being built by Pedersen following a similar sale. The partial disposal programme was always part of Grosvenor's vision for Liverpool One, the company said, and is not a response to the £140m cost over-run announced in the past year.

    Grosvenor has also mooted the possibility of selling the so-called Bling Bling Building partly occupied by Herbert of Liverpool, the hairdresser. The Piers Gough-designed building, also on Hanover Street, features 20,000 sq ft over five floors. Herbert occupies two floors and there are three vacant floors of offices above.

    In September, Grosvenor confirmed the sale of the 217-bed Hilton Hotel, currently under construction, on the southern edge of Chavasse Park for £60m to Andreas Panayiatou's Ability Group.

    I take it that's the existing grotty carpark above where Blacks used to be... I thought that place had been forgotten about.

    I can't help noticing that most of the new units down Hanover St - in the BBC and Bling Bling buildings - are still empty. Hopefully businesses are just waiting for the whole project to be more "complete" before they move in anywhere. Hanover St is a bit inaccessible at the mo anyway.

    Jigsaw, Radley and Fred Perry are the latest signings at Peter’s Lane, the niche fashion district being created by Grosvenor as part of its Liverpool One regeneration project. The three they have taken 5,400 sq ft, 1,580 sq ft and 1,600 sq ft units respectively. All are new to Liverpool and they join Reiss, Ted Baker, Jones and Karen Millen, all of whom have recently committed to Liverpool One.

    Flannels, the premium North West-based fashion-led department store, is doubling its representation in Liverpool by taking the anchor store on Peter’s Lane. The store will be the focal point of an arcade-like covered street designed by Sir Jeremy Dixon that will become the destination for aspirational shoppers visiting Liverpool.

    Also just signed is G-Star, which has taken a 5,000 sq ft unit on Paradise Street, Liverpool One’s urban fashion and accessories district.

    Liverpool One will open in two phases, with the bulk of the retail space trading from May 2008 with the remainder of the retail, plus the scheme's catering offer, opening in September 2008.

    Default Steel bridge hoisted into place

    A steel and glass bridge linking a new shopping development in Liverpool city centre to a multi-storey car park is being lifted into place.

    The 150-tonne bridge will link the new John Lewis store in the Liverpool One complex to the nearby Q-Park car park.

    THE ECHO can today reveal the opening date for the biggest stores at the heart of Liverpool’s new shopping paradise.

    Massive John Lewis and Debenhams shops will open their doors to the public in May next year.

    Bosses at Grosvenor, the company building the Liverpool One development, also revealed at least another 80 smaller outlets would be open that month, giving 1m sq ft of new shopping space.

    In September 2008, a further 600,000 sq ft of shops, plus restaurants, cafes, bars and over 600 homes, offices and a nursery will open.

    Then early in 2009, the new Hilton hotel and budget Novotel hotel will start taking their first guests.

    In staffing all those new businesses more than 5,000 new jobs will be created and recruitment is well underway at the Shop for Jobs centre at the project’s headquarters on Lord Street.

    Almost 2,000 shopfitters will spend Christmas and into the New Year fitting out more than 160 new shops, cafes and restaurants and two hotels across the 43-acre site.

    The latest retail unit to be completed is on the corner of Hanover Street and College Lane and it will be home to three shops.

    Rod Holmes, Grosvenor project director, said: “The work topping out of another new building at one end of Hanover Street and the erection of the bridge at the other shows the good progress we are making on building what will be the exciting new shopping streets, homes and public spaces that will open in stages during next year as Liverpool One.”

    marymurtagh@liverpoolecho.co.uk

    When complete, the development, which has a footprint the size of 28 football pitches, will include more than 450 apartments and seven acres of parkland, as well as the shops, bars and leisure outlets.

    WHAT a difference £1bn and three years of hard work makes.

    Amid the cranes and diggers, the new Liverpool One development is emerging.

    This weekend another eye-catching structure will be erected - the steel bridge connecting John Lewis and the multi-storey car park.

    It is a far cry from 2004 before building work started - the NCP car park, original Chavasse park and Moat House Hotel have all been consigned to history.

    When the last shop is fitted and paving slab laid, planners say the development will look like the computer generated image above.

    Turning the Paradise Street project blueprint to reality has taken almost a decade.

    Rod Holmes, Grosvenor project director, said: “All this - the assembly of the development area, the planning, public inquiries, design, letting, financing and construction will have been achieved in just nine years, which makes it not just the largest city centre project of its time, but by far the quickest.

    “This reflects the urgency of what was deemed necessary to reverse the prospects of the great city of Liverpool.

    ”Grosvenor's underwriting of the £1bin investment and its commitment to Liverpool have encouraged other investors and businesses to come to Liverpool.

    “Even before Liverpool One is complete, the project has helped to change other people's perceptions of the city; and also the way the city now sees itself.”

    timeline

    April 1999: Liverpool city council votes for Paradise Street area redevelopment plan.

    October 1999: Development partners shortlisted.

    March 2000: Grosvenor selected.

    April – September 2000: Masterplan created.

    January 2001: Planning application submitted.

    October 2001: Planning application altered to reflect public feeling.

    September 2002: Liverpool’s planning committee approves application.

    Autumn 2003: Tenants signed up and public inquiry into compulsory purchase and road closure orders started.

    November 2004: Work begins.

    November 2005: Project renamed Liverpool One. Paradise Street bus station opens.

    April 2006: More than half of the retail space at Liverpool One is filled, two years ahead opening.

    August 2006: Radio Merseyside and firefighters from Canning Place move into their new homes and the John Lewis building is completed.

    July 2007: Debenhams building handed over.

    Its amazing to see it develop, the litter I felt wouldn't have been an issue in Liverpool One. I asumed anyway that it would be going for the Trafford Centre style of cleanliness.

    I thought that too, ironic eh!

    I must say, when the bridge was being put together on the ground, I was sceptical, plain and simple structures usually look better than fancy designs which become an eyesore. But since it's been put in position it looks better.

    I'll try and get a photo in the next few days.

    I didnt even know Colins Bridewell had closed, but it has now re-opened as Jalons Bridewell and is hoping to take advantage of being on the doorstep of the Liverpool One development.

    Has that all been uncovered or brightened up, or have I just never noticed it before?

    It looks pretty much like it always did, but having new windows makes a difference.
