The Royal Liver Building overlooks the Mersea

Liverpool has embarked on an ambitious programme to revitalise the central docks and the area in front of the iconic Three Graces waterfront buildings. The focus of work on this high-profile site has been the creation of a canal extension linking the Leeds and Liverpool Canal to the north with dockland water basins adjacent to King’s Waterfront (formerly King’s Dock) to the south.

With the Three Graces historic waterside buildings as its backdrop, this 2.5 hectare public plaza facing the River Mersey is an urban landscape with broad appeal and varied uses, It incorporates sunken water basins as part of a new canal link and open-air performance areas for cultural celebration.

The site is within the context of an AECOM Design + Planning-led regeneration masterplan, including the new landmark Museum of Liverpool and a mixed-use development of homes, shops and offices to the south, along with the remodelling of the famous Mersey ferry terminal.
