Liverpool waterfront hotel sites brought to market

Peel Waters is seeking global operators to bring forward development plans for two prime plots along Princes Dock.

Discussions are already underway with prospective hoteliers for one of the sites, which are both off Princes Parade.

They feature as part of the emerging £5.5bn Liverpool Waters destination which includes around 600 homes and 200,000 sq ft of Grade A commercial space, near the city centre.

The first freehold plot has access and outline planning already secured for hotel use.

It is located directly on the waterfront, with views across the River Mersey and to landmark Three Graces.

Originally earmarked by Liverpool City Council for the cruise liner hotel project, it is adjacent to the Isle of Man ferry terminal and a short walk from Everton’s forthcoming Bramley Moore Dock stadium.

Peel Waters has appointed commercial real estate firm Colliers to seek hotel operators and partners for this development.

The second site is being used as a temporary cruise liner terminal, but this will become available for development once Global Ports Holding relocates within the next three years.

It is located adjacent to the Pier Head and Royal Liver Building and discussions are underway with hoteliers on this site.

Chris Capes, director for development at Liverpool Waters said: “Our masterplan for Liverpool Waters supports the opportunity for at least two new waterfront hotels to accommodate the growing number of tourists and so we are now actively looking for a hotel operator to develop this first prime waterfront site.

“We will also be very excited to bring forward the site of the current temporary cruise liner terminal once Global Ports Holdings relocates to their new terminal.

“This is possibly the most prominent site at Liverpool Waters and so we will be looking for something quite special that will really transform that part of Liverpool’s iconic waterfront.”

The first site is available immediately, interested parties can contact Marc Finney at

Parties with interest in the second plot can contact Liza Marco at

Last month Peel Waters and Peel Ports announced a 50-year agreement with Global Ports Holding Plc to operate services from Liverpool Cruise Port and increase the number of liners coming into Liverpool Waters.

The sooner these plots are developed the better, it’s prime land and not being used well at present. These hotels will probably include restaurants which will give visitors and locals the opportunity to dine and drink overlooking the river.
I feel Global will not build an in-river cruise terminal, therefore the old jetty, which is still structurally sound, can be transformed as a jetty/boardwalk with cafes and bars to add to the number of waterfront attractions down at Princes Dock.
