    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.

    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.

    Advertisements -------

    "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.

    They may well be tram lines because that's the right area where they are hopefully going to be
