LONDON-Liverpool City Council has given the Mersey Docks and Harbour Company approval for a revised masterplan for the Princes Dock site, occupying 35 acres to the north of the landmark Pier Head. The new scheme has been extended by 53% to provide one million sf of offices; three hotels, 270 residential units, 52,000 sf of leisure and retail outlets and 1,160 parking spaces.

The extra floorspace has been created by increasing the height of the 13 buildings on the site from an average of five to six to seven or eight storeys. Two tower features of 12 and 17 storeys are planned for the northern end of the dock and a landmark corner building of 11 storeys will overlook St Nicholas Place, the Royal Liver Building and Liverpool Pier Head.

Mersey Docks’ project manager Ian Pollitt said: “The policy of increasing and widening the mix of use for the site is also very much in keeping with current best practice on land regeneration.”
