Liverpool is set to look very different in 2016 with the completion of several high-profile developments across the hospitality and entertainment sectors. From restaurants and plush hotels to high-rise private and serviced apartments, the face of Liverpool will undergo a major change over the next twelve months.
60 Old Hall Street in Liverpool city centre has been acquired by Signature Living, with big plans for what was once called “the ugliest building on Old Hall Street.” Set to be completed towards the end of 2016, the building will feature residential space, serviced apartments, office space and a ground floor retail unit. Plans also include a roof-top gym housed inside a glass box structure, which will also contain a running track.
Other projects include Herculaneum Quay, a 14-storey residential tower on Liverpool’s waterfront with coffee shop and an outdoor spa pool; Easyjet’s ‘super budget’ EasyHotel at the airport; a new Anfield Main Stand; the completion of The Shankly Hotel on Victoria Street; the arrival of Five Guys Burgers and Fries in Queens Square; The Baltic Village, a huge private sector rental development in the Baltic Triangle; the purpose built Club House bar and restaurant in Liverpool ONE, and the Pullman Hotel attached to the new Exhibition Centre, Liverpool.
