    Default Liverpool Markets

    Great Homer Street

    A LIVERPOOL market place is to have a £150m revamp, with plans to build the city’s biggest super- market.


    ADVERTISING




    It is hoped Great Homer Street in Everton will experience a major rebirth with Project Jennifer, a scheme that is set to transform the area into the city’s biggest district centre.

    If plans get the go-ahead, the site will host a 110,000 sq ft Tesco, a new NHS PCT health centre with a doctor’s surgery and dentist, a new library and nearly 500 new homes.

    The site will also host a petrol station and non-food shops, as well as space for 300 outdoor market stalls and an indoor market hall.

    It is designed so that the supermarket will start at first- floor level, with other shops and car parking spaces underneath.

    The 481 new homes – a mixture of flats and houses – will be built to help bring in new families to the area which has seen the population plummet in the last decade.

    The plans include an 11-storey block and another six-storey block providing 74 flats.

    The new Tesco would dwarf Liverpool’s current biggest supermarket, Asda at Hunts Cross. continues......

    That Project Jennifer has been around for years. I'd almost given up on it.

    What do you suggest they build there instead? The area is a wasteland and all they are trying to do is re-create a sustainable community with amenities. Nobody is going to move into these new homes if the only place to shop is a Bargain Booze and newsagent. If you read the article fully you'll see there is far more planned than just a Tesco.

    It'd be the newish Asda in Breckfield Road North, discounting the frozen food store on the current site of the proposed Tesco.
