Retail leads next phase of Anfield revamp
3 Jul 2017, 10:54
The next stage in the regeneration of the area around Liverpool FC’s stadium will be a High Street development by Keepmoat and Priority Space.
The High Street on Walton Breck Road will be anchored by the football club’s new store. Alongside the club store, there will be a 150-bed hotel, small business centre, box park for street food operators, shops, cafes and housing. Work to demolish derelict buildings on the road started last year.
The new retail, commercial, residential and leisure spaces are expected to be built over the next two years and are available for sale and to let.
The High Sreet is part of the wider £260m regeneration of Anfield being driven by partners Liverpool City Council, Your Housing Group and Liverpool FC. In the last three years, around 400 homes have been built, another 300 homes refurbished and 230 substandard and derelict properties demolished.
Anfield Sports & Community Centre has been refurbished and a new health centre and school have been built and opened. Stanley Park has also undergone major improvements. In the next two years there are plans to build a new hotel adjacent to the High Street as well as further housing renovation and building. Talks on the hotel development are at an advanced stage.
