Waterfront site just three miles from Liverpool City Centre
A unique development opportunity surrounded by oriental gardens
A beautiful site in the heart of a historic Liverpool landmark
The Liverpool Festival Gardens site, which lies just 3 miles to the south of the city centre, is split into three distinct zones:
Development Zone – 28 acres incorporating the former ‘Pleasure Island’ dome, plaza and waterfront bund
The Gardens – 25 acres of Oriental Gardens set around a sizeable landscaped mound with large surface car park remaining from Festival Gardens
Southern Grasslands – 37 acres of former Festival Gardens land that has self-seeded
The Development Zone, part of which was a former landfill site, once formed part of the International Garden Festival celebrations launched by Queen Elizabeth II in 1984.
In November 2023, Liverpool’s Festival Gardens development zone reached a further major milestone in its transformational journey, with the work to remediate the land being completed, following a two-year excavation programme.
Liverpool City Council is now seeking to appoint a multidisciplinary consultant team to assist them in creating a development brief for the residential led development of the disused land. You can find out more about this opportunity HERE.
Festival Gardens has the potential to be an exemplar development driven by best practice, creativity and innovation in design and sustainability, minimising whole life-cycle costs and carbon emissions, and being resilient to climate change.
