Liverpool’s Albert Dock has received royal status ahead of its 175-year anniversary in 2021 including its recently approved ‘Welcome Pavilion’ development.
The Royal Albert Docks’ commercial interests are owned by Aberdeen Standard investments whose development aims to make the site a retail and food destination.
Part of the plans is the 4,000 sq Welcome Pavilion which will act as an information centre and events space, as well as a showcase of the historical displays of the area. The Welcome Pavilion forms the first part of a masterplan developed by landscape architects, Planit-IE, for the future development of the iconic Liverpool site.
Sue Grindrod, chief executive of Albert Dock Liverpool, said: “Delivering on our vision for a Welcome Pavilion in such an iconic location has pushed us to focus on the future needs of visitors to Albert Dock for years to come. We are thrilled that we can now break ground and realise the vision.
“I’m grateful for the support provided by the teams from Arup, K2 Architects, Planit-IE, Curtins, Steven A Hunt & Associates, Walker Sime, Jenny Douglas, and Rob Burns who have all worked together so brilliantly to deliver the planning.”
