    Default North End

    from www.rudi.net

    In Liverpool's 800th year, BDP has created a vision for Liverpool Northshore on behalf of Liverpool Land Development Company. The vision explores proposals for 800 acres of abandoned dockland and under-utilised hinterland north of the city centre. It represents an unparalleled opportunity to incorporate a balance of leisure, employment, residential and knowledge-based economic activity to create employment opportunity and reinforce housing market renewal initiatives in Liverpool’s northern wards and surrounding boroughs. BDP aims to create the longest and most successful waterfront in the UK.

    In this context, BDP’s vision represents Northshore as a model for the city region, drawing Liverpool together as an independent and self-reliant city under the aegis of its unique and world recognised brand. It also represents Northshore as a model for sustainable communities on this vast brownfield city site; showcasing architectural innovation and environmental design that will enliven the city and moderate urban sprawl.

    The vision is based on sustainable transport choices which were informed by a complementary infrastructure study for Northshore, reviewing the city’s impressive railway network, proposing the re-opening of railway tunnels into the city, re-establishing the Liverpool overhead railway and proposing a new mainline terminus and ultimately a new rail tunnel under the Mersey.

    BDP worked with Locum Destination Consulting and Faber Maunsell to produce the vision for Liverpool Northshore. The work is now the subject of consideration by LLDC and its partners within the context of the wider regeneration of North Liverpool that the city council is championing.

    I thought that area of land had already been purchased by peel holdings as part of Liverpool waters scheme? hmmm...is this a case of scuppering or am I missing something regarding all the proposed drawings published by Peel which show a grand waterfront scheme , with mono rail too?
    anyone got any ideas as to what is actually happening here?

    or is it that peel never owned the land? perhaps thats why there over here on the wirral this past month or so?

    Peel own the docks up to the Dock Road. This area goes all the way back into Vauxhall.

    If you look at this image of Peel's Liverpool Waters though and compare it to the outined area in your attached image they do clearly overlap. Use Stanley Dock warehouse as a reference..

    It is possible that Peel and LLDC wil work in partnership as do alot of companies. LLDC do say that the outlined area will include commercial space which could be reffering to the Liverpool Waters scheme.

    I just now find it so confusing why produce the models and drawings like the one above, after all it seems like its a proposed vision for Liverpool, what relationship does Liverpool Land development company have? I thought they were just involved in the edge lane project? but wasnt it peel that produced those models and spent money on drawings about a proposed vision for Liverpool?
    it would be interesting to know what relationship Peel have with the Liverpool land development company and who really owns the land. I know peel have bought alot of Land and property over here on the Wirral but what is the situation in Liverpool, just what to Peel actually own?

    why produce drawings models of somebody elses land? seems rather a waste if it all falls through?
