The steel frame is complete for a 40,000 sq ft unit at one of the first phases of Derwent Group’s planned 727,000 sq ft Liverpool Shopping Park on Edge Lane.
Caddick Construction has used more than 250 tonnes of steel to create the retail unit located on the site of the former Blockbusters store and Subway, across the junction of Rathbone Road and Edge Lane. The 40,000 sq ft warehouse will sit alongside two other units of 10,000 sq ft each, to be occupied by lifestyle, home and interiors retailers.
The units are due to be handed over by April next year. AEW Architects designed the project.
The £100m Liverpool Shopping Park will total 41 retail units, as well as parking for 1,500 cars and a significant leisure offer when it is complete at the end of 2017.
David Lyons, group chief executive of Derwent Group, said: “Work on site is progressing very well indeed. Weeks of site clearance and demolition are complete and we can now see Liverpool Shopping Park coming out of the ground.
“We are delivering this mixed-use commercial development in distinct phases, and these units will be one of the first parts of Liverpool Shopping Park to be completed.”
