Grosvenor in Liverpool
Liverpool is an exciting and vibrant city in the northwest of England, well-known for its strong links with art, music, sport and shopping.
In 1999, Liverpool City Council selected Grosvenor to define the master plan for Liverpool ONE. One of the largest regeneration projects in the UK. Grosvenor’s vision was to create a mixed-use development with retail, dining, leisure, public space, offices, and residential accommodation, a place that people could live, visit, play and work. The ambition was not just to improve the current retail offering in Liverpool but to ensure that the city gained a new centre at its heart that would be a quantum leap above what was there before in terms of its quality, scope, and wider appeal.
Launched in 2008, Liverpool ONE is the result of Grosvenor’s vision. It is no exaggeration to say it is probably the most successful regeneration project of the modern era. Liverpool ONE has acted as the catalyst for the regeneration of the wider city-region, while ensuring that the development itself has delivered positive commercial, social and environmental benefits. Liverpool is once again the “go to” destination for the region.
Today, Grosvenor runs 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.
