The first phase of the new development is expected to be complete by summer 2016. The whole development will cover a million square feet in the city’s Baltic Quarter.
The plans involve the restoration of the Grade II listed Victorian brewery building. It will house a 94-room hotel, courtyard bistro bar & restaurants and retail space. The existing historic Brewery Tap pub will be restored and retained.
The plans also include a cinema, a supermarket, a fitness centre and 500+ car parking spaces. There will also be a residential element of up to 775 homes or 2,500 student bedrooms.
A new Cains brewery will also be built as part of the overall scheme.
Cains Brewery Village bosses are now seeking development partners and operators for the hotel and independent cinema elements of the scheme, as well as a supermarket operator for the food retail element.
The project team includes architects Falconer Chester Hall along with consultants Mott MacDonald, Davis Langdon and Aecom.
Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson said: “The Cains Brewery Village scheme will transform one of the city’s most important historic buildings and create a new tourist destination capable of holding food, craft and cultural events which will complement the city’s existing retail and leisure offer. It will also be a perfect neighbour to the vibrant cultural community in the Baltic Quarter. We’re delighted this scheme is progressing.”
Cains Brewery Village managing director Sudarghara Dusanj: “We are going to create a major new tourism and leisure asset for the city which will secure the future of the Cains beer brand and the Grade II listed brewery for decades to come. We are now seeking development partners and operators for the cinema, hotel and supermarket to help take the scheme forward. “
