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