Living Liverpool

Grosvenor in Liverpool

Liverpool City Council selected Grosvenor Britain & Ireland to define the master plan for Liverpool ONE in 1999. We completed the 17-hectare scheme in 2008. It is the largest regeneration project in Liverpool for many decades. Today, Grosvenor Europe still has a full-time office in the city, taking a hands-on approach to management of more than 200 stores, bars and restaurants, a 14-screen cinema, 500 apartments, two hotels, four office buildings and a two-hectare park.

My Liverpool

A personal view by Alison Clegg

"Liverpool is an exciting and vibrant city in the northwest of England, well-known for its strong links with art, music, sport and shopping. I have lived in the area since I was a child and studied or worked in the city for over 20 years. 'Liverpudlians' welcome over 30 million visitors a year who want to experience what Liverpool has to offer, from the art galleries (including Tate Liverpool) to the museums, the famous waterfront including the Albert Dock and the Liver Building to the shopping, the football and, of course, the birthplace of The Beatles. As a local I am proud to be part of the Grosvenor team that looks after Liverpool ONE and helping to shape the future of such a large part of the city. Since opening the scheme in 2008, we have helped improve the retail offer in the city, bringing new brands such as Harvey Nichols, Urban Outfitters, Apple and Hollister."

Grosvenor's city insights

  1. A world-famous destination

    Liverpool’s time as Capital of Culture status in 2008 helped bring new investment into the city. With the strong tourist industry, huge student population and variety of things to see and do, it should be no surprise that the travel ‘bible’, the Rough Guide, named Liverpool as one of the top 10 destinations to visit in the world in 2014.

  2. Shopping paradise

    New brands such as the first Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar in the world have helped bring shoppers to the city – both retail sales and visitor footfall have increased every year since Liverpool ONE opened in 2008. Independent retailers sit alongside multiple brands. One of the latest additions at Liverpool ONE is Home Coffee, a coffee shop and delicatessen. Home Coffee's customers can choose from a range of locally sourced products from their signature hot chocolate to locally produced 'School Lane' home brew.

  3. Liverpool's hidden gems

    Liverpool is quite a compact city and is easy to get around as a pedestrian. Visitors can walk down to the impressive Albert Dock to experience the city's bracing sea air and see the architecture that is said to have inspired The Bund in Shanghai. A tour around the Anglican Cathedral is also a must as the views from the top on a clear day are spectacular.

Chavasse Park awarded Green Flag

In 2013, Chavasse Park, in Liverpool ONE, received a prestigious Green Flag Award, after it was highly praised in several categories by judges from Keep Britain Tidy.  Liverpool ONE is the only new city-centre commercial development in the country to include a park with Green Flag. The two-hectare park was named after local war hero Noel Godfrey Chavasse; one of only three British subjects to be awarded the Victoria Cross twice.
