Plans for a new creative hub in Liverpool’s northern docklands will not harm the Baltic Triangle district, according to the city’s mayor.
Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson has offered assurances that the ‘Ten Streets’ project will “complement” other regeneration zones and may even free up space in the city centre.
He says: “I want to make the point that ‘Ten Streets’ will not replace the Baltic Triangle. It may even benefit that part of the city centre by creating more space there as some of the businesses may wish to relocate to the northern docklands.
“We are still committed to working with the businesses based in the Baltic Triangle because it is a creative jewel in Liverpool’s crown and we want ‘Ten Streets’ to be the same. It’s not going to replace the Baltic Triangle, it will complement it.”
‘Ten Streets’ is a regeneration initiative which aims to transform a rundown area of the docks into a district where digital businesses and creative enterprises can thrive alongside art organisations.
The initiative, which aims to create an estimated 2,500 new jobs over the next decade, could include the development of new squares and public spaces as well as new retail, culture and leisure outlets to increase footfall in the area.
The UK’s first theatre with a revolving auditorium is also being lined up for the creative district.
Infrastructure improvements in the area, including road upgrades and a new train station, are expected to complement ‘Ten Streets’ which will be delivered by Harcourt Developments, the company behind Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel.
Liverpool City Council and Harcourt’s vision for ‘Ten Streets’ is on public display between now and 10 February after being launched yesterday (2 February), and the feedback gathered will help shape a formal masterplan for the project.
Plans to convert a kitchen showroom into a new hotel in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle are expected to be approved.
Living Brick’s proposals for ‘Baltic Hotel’ include a café/restaurant, bar and a three-storey roof extension.
A report to Liverpool City Council’s planning committee recommending the 36-bedroom hotel for approval says the scheme will contribute towards a “sustainable mix of uses in an accessible location, benefiting the local economy and providing enhanced employment prospects and will assist in increasing activity in the area”.
The application site on Jamaica Street is designated within the UDP (Unitary Development Plan) for industrial uses, however the report notes that a “strict adherence to [this] policy” has so far failed to attract any new interest.
If plans are approved, the building’s current occupier Baltic Kitchens & Bedrooms would relocate to more modern premises.
A total of 36 bedrooms are proposed for the hotel – 18 within the existing mid to late 19th Century building and 18 located within the new rooftop extension.
Developer Living Brick recently submitted plans for another hotel on Liverpool’s Duke Street.
It’s envisaged that the 30-room ‘Duke Street Boutique’, earmarked for a vacant plot between a nursery and French style café bar Petit Café Du Coin, will feature a spacious lobby and seating area backdropped by an “impressive curving staircase”.
The council’s planning committee will convene next Tuesday (11 December) to rule on the Baltic Triangle proposals.
Christie & Co, a specialist business property adviser, have released their latest review of the UK hotel market which suggests that, despite uncertainty (especially Brexit) the sector remains buoyant. Highlights include:
Using indicators such as occupancy and revenue-per-room the Colliers’ UK Hotel Market Index ranked Liverpool third out of 34 cities behind only Edinburgh and Belfast.
Liverpool is now a UK hotspot for hotel investment with a new index putting it in the top three UK cities thanks to rising room occupancy and revenue-per-room (RevPar).
On Monday, property experts Colliers International published the Colliers’ UK Hotel Market Index which looks at nine key performance indicators in 34 cities in the UK and consolidates them into a single ranking.
Liverpool came third in the index behind only Edinburgh and Belfast and rising from eighth in 2017. The city was ranked fourth for occupancy, behind only London, Edinburgh and Oxford, with a rate of 81.8% in 2018, up from 78.7% in 2017.
It ranked number one for RevPar with average annual growth of 7.3 per cent in revenue per available room over the past four years, higher than Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Plymouth. And in terms of costs of development Liverpool was third, coming behind Edinburgh and Glasgow.
In 2008, the year when Liverpool was European Capital of Culture, the city was home to 37 hotels, providing 3,726 rooms. Hundreds of millions of pounds have been invested into the sector since then and the city now boasts almost 70 city centre hotels/apart hotels and guest houses offering 8,731 rooms with another 878 in the pipeline.
Manchester also performs well, with the city having a strong pipeline of hotel rooms becoming available over the next two years. It has a current supply of 18,754 rooms and an active pipeline of another 2,210 rooms.
Chester emerges as the most improved hotel market, being ranked number one in the category of rising stars, ahead of Gloucester, Liverpool, Newcastle and Brighton, representing a marked rise for the historic centre from 11th position in the 2017 Index.
Rising from 11th to fourth in the overall index, key factors behind Chester’s success in both tables include growth in occupancy levels at its hotels and lower build costs when compared to other locations.
Marc Finney, head of hotels and resorts consulting at Colliers International, said: “This year’s Index shows a strong performance for the North West of England, with Liverpool’s active pipeline ranking improving by eight spots bringing it into third place.
“This is mainly due to strong growth in both occupancy and average daily room rate, resulting in the highest four-year RevPAR trend, combined with improved market appetite and relatively low land site prices.”
