Liverpool venue’s expansion opens door for Boxpark 

Red Brick Market is moving to a larger site within the Cains Brewery Village complex, paving the way for the London-founded leisure concept to move into the venue’s existing home on Beaufort Street.

Boxpark is to launch a 16,000 sq ft food, drink and entertainment complex within Canning Hall at Cains Brewery Village, its fourth site in total and first outside the capital. 

To facilitate Boxpark’s arrival and to meet a need for more space, Red Brick Market is to relocate from Canning Hall to a larger site, the former Prosser Warehouse on the corner of Beaufort Street and Stanhope Street. 

A planning application seeking consent for the conversion of the warehouse into a new home for Red Brick has been submitted to Liverpool City Council. 

The new 22,000 sq ft venue will feature space for 70 market traders – 54 of which will make the move from the existing site – and also features nine larger units that could be used as offices. A bar and a bakery are also proposed.

Baltic Architects and Baltic PDC are advising the applicant on the proposals. 

David Morse, director at Baltic PDC, said that the market had outgrown its current home.

“We are at a natural turning point. Boxpark is coming forward and Red Brick was already looking to expand and diversify,” Morse said.

Boxpark, which has signed a 15-year lease on its Liverpool site, is due to open in late 2023 following a £3.5m investment. The new Red Brick market could open early next year.

Positive news here on both fronts, meanwhile the Parliament Square residences continue apace and One Baltic Square making great progress, if only Legacie would take on the New Chinatown development .
Can Steve Rotheram please bring forward the Baltic station project as it`s much needed, do we really have to wait for a 2024 start for just one station,
