New Project: Visionary Plan for Liverpool’s Waterfront

Liverpool, UK

West 8, together with BDP, has been chosen by Liverpool City Council to work on creating an ambitious and visionary plan for Liverpool’s world-famous waterfront!

We are very excited for this marvellous opportunity to start working on Liverpool’s phenomenal waterfront. We are inspired by its rich history and heritage, and we see many opportunities to better link Liverpool’s diverse communities to the Waterfront and to have their voice heard. Working together, our goal is to create a welcoming and green vision for the waterfront that thrives – no matter the weather! The waterfront is a place for all.
– Martin Biewenga, Partner, West 8

Collaborating together on a coherent, legible and visionary approach for the future, the team will be supported by WSP (connectivity and movement) and ekosgen (social impact). Designing with local knowledge, the team will undergo meaningful engagement with Liverpool’s communities, residents, businesses and key stakeholders. The final waterfront plan is intended to be taken forward for adoption as a Supplementary Planning Document.
