The developer behind the £49 million regeneration of Lime Street in Liverpool has been celebrating the project’s completion.
Ion Developments, alongside real estate investment firm Curlew Capital, welcomed Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson to the city centre scheme.
The mixed-use development, adjacent to Liverpool Lime Street railway station, features more than 28,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space including an anchor Lidl supermarket, a 412-bed student accommodation block and a 101-bedroom Premier Inn hotel.
Artist Anthony Brown, the man behind the graphic art work panels which adorn much of the new streetscene, also visited the finished project.
Brown says: “With this work, we tried to capture and reflect the history of a truly unique street – and one of the most important areas in the city of Liverpool.
“We created an accessible ‘Quantum Timeline’ using illustrative graphic images and archived text to immortalise the development, buildings, business and people of Lime Street.”
Attendees welcoming Brown and Mayor Anderson were Ion’s managing director, Steve Parry, Curlew Capital’s head of investment management, Ian Scott and ISG’s regional director, Paul Munro.
Steve Parry, managing director at Ion, adds: ‘It was important to gather together the partners who have made this scheme possible.
“Today we celebrate the past and the present through Anthony Brown’s unique historic timeline and the completed development bringing leisure and retail to Lime Street once again.”
