New images and a video show how new buildings planned for Liverpool’s waterfront could look.

Around 1,500 new jobs could be created in the first phase of the development planned for Liverpool’s Monarch’s Quay, part of King’s Dock.

Wirral-based call centre operator The Contact Company (TCC) is working with landowner Liverpool City Council and development partner YPG to build a new grade A office complex on the site.

TCC is run by entrepreneur Asif Hamid who is also chair of the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership.

These images show the potential office development for the first time and give an indication of possible future developments on the site, subject to planning consent.

The city council’s overall vision is to deliver a major mixed use development which would create a new leisure, commercial and retail destination on the city’s waterfront.

The images and an accompanying video, featuring Liverpool FC legend Jamie Carragher talking about the city’s regeneration, were being showcased by developer YPG at the MIPIM international property conference in London this week.

Further phases of development of the site could include a major leisure attraction, such as a 2,000-seat ice rink, a hotel, new apartments and homes, restaurants, bars and shops and a car park.

A new Winter Garden, new public realm, ten pin bowling and an innovative virtual reality leisure centre are also being considered.

Around 1,500 people will be employed at Liverpool’s Monarch’s Quay, part of King’s Dock on the waterfront

 

Council bosses emphasise that no concrete decisions have been made about the leisure attraction and that an ice rink is one of a number of options being considered.

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson said: “The Kings Dock is the final piece of the jigsaw in our vision for this part of the waterfront. This transformation will help link the existing waterfront assets with the Baltic Triangle and significantly boost employment in the city.” 

Consultation on later phases of the overall Kings Dock development is now underway. People can express their views by clicking here.
