New £150M landmark for Liverpool

Planning approval has been given for the £150 million redevelopment of the iconic Grade 11 listed Cains Brewery site in Liverpool.


Construction of the new one million square foot development Cains Brewery Village, which is designed to become a major tourism, leisure and retail attraction, will start next year with the first phase to be completed in 2016.


The development has been described as ‘transformational’, designed to breathe new life into the City’s Baltic Quarter, creating 800 jobs. The brewery building will be retained and refurbished with a museum and event centre and a ‘Sky Bar’. There will still be a brewery on site for making ‘craft’ beers.


The project also includes a four-screen cinema, a 94-room hotel, bars and restaurants, a supermarket and other retail spaces including an open plan retail hall for local artisan food producers. There will be 775 high quality homes or 2,500 student bedrooms, and parking for 500 cars.


Sudarghara Dusanj, managing director of Cains Brewery Village, said: “We are now seeking development partners and operators for the cinema, hotel and supermarket to help take the scheme forward. We are particularly keen to speak to upmarket quality supermarket operators who want to take advantage of what is a clear gap in the city market.”


Adam Hall, managing director of architects Falconer Chester Hall, said: “The scheme will bring together new and old to create a genuinely atmospheric and vibrant destination, with design inspiration coming from right across the world. The brewery building will be restored to glories not seen for a hundred years, and become a landmark which the city can be proud of.”
