Breathing life back into the historic docklands.

Liverpool Waters is an ambitious 30-year vision to completely transform the city’s northern docks, creating a sustainable world-class, high-quality, mixed-use waterfront and bringing life back to the historic docklands.

As the largest single development opportunity in the city, Liverpool Waters is a seamless extension of both Liverpool’s Commercial Business District and its iconic world heritage waterfront.

Extending to over 2km along the banks of the River Mersey, the scheme has outline planning permission across 60 hectares, and will help drive substantial economic growth for Liverpool and the city region.

The Stats

Five Neighbourhoods

Liverpool Waters is split into five neighbourhoods.

The first neighbourhood to be developed was Princes Dock, which is now a thriving community with a mix of residential and commercial developments sitting alongside hotels, restaurants, and coffee shops. Key projects live now include X1’s Patagonia Place which started in 2023 – another quality residential project that will deliver 278 new homes across 31 storeys. Future developments include a new cruise liner terminal.

Central Docks is the next neighbourhood set for regeneration. With outline permission for up to 3,800 homes, commercial, leisure and retail this is the largest of the five neighbourhoods planned for Liverpool Waters.

Work has already started, with two crucial link roads completed; Jesse Hartley Way and Triskelion Way. These provide access to Romal’s residential schemes within Central Docks, Park Central and Quay Central, that were completed in 2019, in addition to the Isle of Man Ferry Terminal and the site of Romal’s Mauretania and Aquitania residential developments.

Moving forward, the recent planning application for Central Park and the enabling infrastructure will literally pave the way for the development of a new sustainable, mixed community that will be delivered over the next 10 years.

The Northern Docks will be dominated by Everton FC’s new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, which will be surrounded by stunning public realm and restored heritage assets including the hydraulic tower. The rest of the Northern Docks is currently being master planned to complement the positive impact of the stadium.
