A Sunday ‘Bazaar’ on the site of the Cains Brewery building in Liverpool could open in November after it was granted planning permission by Liverpool City Council.
Baltic Yards will now seek licensing for the market, which will take place in the 3,240 sq m ‘Market Hall’, as well as a performance space, office and food area. The scheme would include extending car parking to allow 126 spaces for visitors and 58 spaces for traders.
Once opened, the market will feature independent traders in a similar design to London’s Camden market. It could also host music, events and exhibitions in the space, as the application uses nearby events space Camp & Furnace as a case study for a successful warehouse conversion.
The application says: “Baltic Yards, aims to build on the bohemian character of the area and provide a home for Liverpudlians and visitors to trade in a personal and creative environment. As with many of the newly established buildings within the Baltic Triangle, Baltic Yard intends to reuse an existing warehouse in an innovative and progressive nature.
The application is the first stage of a mixed-use scheme that will include a boutique hotel, four-screen cinema, an artisan food hall, retail space and residential apartments. Baltic Yards will make use of the space before construction begins on the scheme, which was granted planning permission in November last year.
