New images of the Great Homer Street regeneration scheme have been revealed today by the UK’s leading regeneration specialist St. Modwen, as the developer prepares for work to start on site in the spring.
The scheme, known locally as Project Jennifer, is being led by St. Modwen in partnership with Liverpool City Council and is estimated to create 1,000 new jobs. The new images show the new flagship Sainsbury’s supermarket, which will be the largest supermarket in the city, as well as some of the development’s 80,000 sq ft of new retail space.
The scheme will also provide around 900 free customer car parking spaces, a petrol filling station, transport improvements to Great Homer Street and enhanced links to Everton Park, together with a new link road between Great Homer Street and Scotland Road.
Paul Batho, projects director at St. Modwen, said: “The new images will give people an insight into how the site will be transformed and a glimpse of the vision that we are aiming to deliver ahead of work starting on site this spring. We are delighted that this scheme, which is both needed and wanted by the local community, is moving forwards towards actual delivery on site. We are committed to delivering this scheme and will be working hard to finalise the details over the next few months as we build-up to starting on site.”
Liverpool City Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, said: “Project Jennifer is an important progression for North Liverpool and will regenerate an area in real need of investment and development. We are looking forward to seeing this vital scheme delivered, which will make a massive difference to people’s lives – breathing new life into the area, providing first-class facilities and creating new jobs.”
