Work starts on £200m New Chinatown in Liverpool

WCN Editorial Team 2 May 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

North Point Global has begun construction work on a £200m project to transform Liverpool’s Chinatown.

Designed by BLOK Architecture, the project to revamp Europe’s oldest Chinese community will include the creation of 850 new homes, 150,000 sq ft of new commercial and retail space, and a new hotel.

The commercial and retail space will house China-based businesses, and a significant number of units have already been bought by Chinese businesses seeking a foothold in the UK.

North Point global chairman David Choules said: "From the outset we wanted this scheme to be an authentic Chinese development that brought new commercial energy and entrepreneurialism into the heart of an historic Chinatown.

"This is not only something unique in the UK, it will be something unique outside China itself."

Phase 1 of the Chinatown’s transformation will be built by BILT Group and Scottish Power and is expected to be complete before the end of 2017, while the entire project is slated to be complete in 2019.
