    Default Kings Waterfront project

    A scheme to transform Liverpool's Kings Dock into a 9,500-seater waterfront arena has got the final go-ahead.

    The 142m construction of the new Kings Waterfront arena and convention centre will start next month, Liverpool City Council said on Tuesday.


    It will also include a multi-storey car park and a hotel development.

    Liverpool City Council leader Mike Storey said the project would be the centrepiece of the city's Capital of Culture year in 2008.

    "This is great news for Liverpool," he said.

    "It's been a long and complicated journey, but I'm delighted that our dream for a world-class arena on the waterfront is now becoming a reality.


    ADVERTISING




    We are on course to deliver a truly world-class facility


    Sir David Henshaw, Liverpool City Council



    "The building blocks are all in place and I'm looking forward to work starting on a facility that the region has needed for a long time."

    Chief Executive, Sir David Henshaw, said: "We have put together a sound financial package which protects the interests of council taxpayers.

    "We are on course to deliver a truly world-class facility, which will make Kings Waterfront one of the great international destinations for business and leisure."

    The project is being funded from four sources: European Union Objective One (50m), English Partnerships (67m), Northwest Development Agency (14m), and Liverpool City Council (11m).

    Infrastructure work on the site started in June, but completion of the latest contract agreement means that the main contract can now go ahead.

    Needs more seats. The MEN in Manchester has 22,000, can't we have anything close? What if we have big stars who can sell out seats that much? If we had big ticket sellers they'd make more of a killing having more seats.

    A TEAM of 10 lawyers from DLA Piper's Liverpool office has helped secure the landmark deal that finally sets in motion full-scale construction of the Kings Waterfront development.

    The legal agreement for Phase One was signed last week and means that building work will now begin on the civic aspects of the scheme - a conference centre, arena, public plaza and 1,600-space multi-storey car park.

    SIR Paul McCartney is being lined up to open Liverpool's Kings Dock arena.
    City leaders want the Beatles legend to be the first act to play at the 146m waterfront complex when it opens in just over two years time.

    Default Kings Dock Appartments

    THIS picture gives an exclusive sneak preview of the swanky flats planned for Kings Dock.

    City council planners will study detailed drawings early in the new year, before ruling whether they can be built.

    Builder David McLean is behind the housing element of the prestigious Kings Waterfront riverside scheme, centred around a 9,400-seat arena and 1,350-capacity conference centre set to open by 2008.

    Architects think the distinctive designs will add an eye-catching contrast to the nearby brick-built Wap-ping warehouses that were converted to residential use 20 years ago.



    more....

    Lets hope they dont end up any were near as bad as those white appartments that were alowd to be built! How did those get planning permission?!!

    CRANES dominate the Liverpool waterfront as the 140m Kings Dock Arena starts to take shape.

    These latest pictures show that the structure is well under way after months of below-ground preparation work.

    The aim is to ensure the showpiece will be completed in time for Liverpool's European Capital of Culture year of 2008.

    THE second hotel set to open on the Kings Waterfront in Liverpool has been revealed as a BDL Staybridge Suites hotel.

    A detailed planning application has been submitted by Irish developer and contractor McAleer & Rushe to build the 132-suite hotel.

    Permission is being sought to build the luxury hotel on the public piazza that forms part of the 37-acre site.

    The Daily Post reported last year that a three-star plus hotel is also planned for the same waterfront. The 310-bedroom Jurys Inn is at the planning stage.

    Both hotels should be completed by spring 2008. Outline permission for the hotels was granted in December 2004.

    The American Staybridge Suites brand was launched in the UK last year with a plan to build two London hotels set to open later this year.

    The masterplan for the Kings Waterfront scheme includes a 9,000-seat arena and 1,350 capacity conference centre set to open by 2008 as well as residential units and retail and leisure space. Construction began last summer.

    A partnership of Liverpool Vision, national regeneration agency English Partnerships, Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA), the European Objective One Programme and Liverpool City Council is jointly promoting the development.

    Jim Gill, chief executive of Liverpool Vision, speaking on behalf of the Kings Waterfront Partnership, said: "I can confirm that a planning application has been submitted. Staybridge are a US company, relatively new to Europe, and we understand that their hotels are of very good quality.

    "It's great news because it's another step on the way for the Kings Waterfront development. We're very happy with the commitment and quality of the two hotel operators involved in the scheme."

    Eliot Lewis-Ward, English Partnerships' area director for Merseyside and Cheshire, said: "As well as creating new jobs, these new developments could also potentially provide accommodation for more than 800 visitors to the city during the 2008 celebrations, become a focal point of the city and help attract even more investment."
