Liverpool Lime Street development begins

May 17, 2017 by NSC in Weekly News
The first sections of steelwork have started to be erected at the site of the new £39M mixed-use development at Liverpool’s Lime Street regeneration area.

Main contractor ISG is working alongside Ion Development to transform this strategic site, opposite Lime Street Station, with a scheme that includes retail, leisure, student accommodation and a new Premier Inn hotel.

Steelwork contractor, Billington Structures, has just started to install the first sections of over 1,300t of steel that will be used on-site to create the 33m tall student accommodation and 15m tall hotel buildings.

The new scheme involves 3,000m² of ground-floor retail space accommodating a range of shops, and food and drink outlets, underneath a 101-bedroom hotel with restaurant, bar and meeting room facilities.

Fronting Bolton Street, there will be an 11-storey, 412-bedroom student block.

The project has involved the demolition of a number of Lime Street and Bolton Street buildings including the former Futurist Cinema, which was built in 1912 and has been vacant since the early 1980s.
