After a major tendering exercise the council has chosen a consortium of three companies to independently develop a Spatial Regeneration Framework (SRF) for the Knowledge Quarter Gateway (KQG) which covers more than 56 acres within the city centre.

The experienced team will be primarily tasked at looking at how best to redevelop the Lime Street area around the Adelphi Hotel, Central Station and Mount Pleasant and dovetailing the proposals from Liverpool John Moores University on its Copperas Hill site, plans for the Fabric District, Merseytravel’s plans for Central Station and various private sector schemes such as Circus Liverpool at the old Lewis’s building.

The KQ Gateway team’s roles will be as follows:

  • GVA HOW Planning – Strategic Planning and Consultation lead
  • K2 Architects – Masterplanning and Architecture lead
  • Planit-IE – Place-making and Landscape lead

The team will also include a number of other supporting consultants including: Mott Macdonald (transport); GVA (property advisory services); Rob Burns (heritage); and Enfusion (strategic environmental assessment).
