Liverpool ONE is a £1 billion mixed use development in the heart of Liverpool City Centre. Occupying 42 acres, it is the most important redevelopment of the city centre for over 40 years and has created a stunning retail and leisure environment within one of Europe's premier cities.
Liverpool ONE was opened in 2008 and is amongst Grosvenor’s most important regeneration projects. It will act as a catalyst for further regeneration projects in the city and already has propelled Liverpool back up the retail rankings.
This highly complex project was delivered in just four years. In all, some 30 buildings were delivered, designed by more than 26 different architects. The development is an open streets design rather than a covered shopping centre. Existing street patterns have been retained and much of the historic architecture has been blended into the modern high quality design that characterises Liverpool ONE.
To date (July 2010), Liverpool ONE has received 60 awards, including: the
VIVA (Vision, Innovation, Value, Achievement) Best-of-the-Best-Award which honours the most outstanding examples of shopping center Design and Development, Sustainability, Marketing and Community Service worldwide. May 2011; two awards by the International Council for Shopping Centres: for New Development Extra Large (over 80,000 sq m), and the ReStore award recognising retail regeneration. April 2010; BCSC Town Centre Environment award for master planning and urban design. June 2009
