This major mixed use development is part of the local authority’s vision to build on Liverpool’s thriving life science sector, attracting investment, creating knowledge intensive jobs and cementing the city region as an international destination of significance for the life-science, healthcare and technology industries.
Plans for Paddington Village will see the 30- acre site, located just off Smithtown Lane, to the east of the city centre, developed into three plots; Paddington North, Paddington Central and Paddington South.
The first phase of work, worth around £12 million, and due to start on site in summer 2017, will involve the installation of infrastructure, creation of public realm across the predominantly brownfield site and the creation of development plots to make them market-ready.
We are also now working upon specific buildings on these plots, including the “Liverpool International College” for Kaplan, a £25m college and student accommodation on a prominent corner of the site.
