A 90 second brief video reveals the latest designs for the cruise liner terminal set to appear in the River Mersey.
An outline planning permission was granted for the scheme in April of this year and the city council has applied through Mersey Docks and Harbour Company for a Harbour Revision Order for the construction of the Jetty in the River Mersey.
With plans to build the cruise terminal in the Liverpool Waters area, the build will include a state of the art passenger and baggage facility, security checking and customs areas, lounges, a café, toilets, car park, taxi rank, vehicle pick up point, and a four star hotel.
Developers estimate the build will create 500 new jobs for the Liverpool area.
The detailed design is being progressed with a view to submit a reserved matters planning application in November 2018.
Commenting on the project, Joyce Brady, Project Director, Ramboll said:
“Ramboll is delighted to have reached the stage on the new Liverpool Cruise Terminal where we can release the latest images and fly-through of the new terminal.
“This is a major regeneration project for Liverpool City Council and their partners that will play an important role in growing Liverpool’s tourist numbers.
“Our team, including architect sub consultants Stride Treglown, and major sub-consultants JLL and Turner & Townsend, are looking forward to seeing the scheme through its construction stage and into operation and accepting ships.”
Disclosing the plans follows consultation events which have supported the pre-planning application for the four-star hotel planned for the new cruise terminal site which Wates has been appointed to construct.
Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: “The construction of this new terminal will mark a new chapter in the city’s maritime future as we create a world class experience for the cruise companies and their passengers.
“We are working with some of the very best in the construction industry to deliver these facilities as the stunning video shows.”
Site preparation works for the new facilities are expected to start in the new year, subject to approval of the Harbour Revision Order.
