With plans revealed to expand the Baltic Triangle over the next decade, Getintothis’ Adam Lowerson has the details.
Plans have been revealed for the Baltic Triangle to expand its commercial footprint by an additional 500,000sq ft over the next five to ten years, providing opportunities for new and existing digital and creative businesses.
Driven by Baltic Creative, which encompasses over 130 businesses, the area of Grade-II listed warehouses has grown into one of the most vibrant areas of the city, and with venues such as Camp and Furnace, District and Hangar 34 has become home to some of Liverpool’s must loved music festivals, including Threshold Festival and Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia.
The expansion will see the utilisation of spaces such as Norfolk Street, Brick Street, Tribeca and the Cains Brewery Village.
Along with the recently revealed plans for the Ten Streets Creativity Zone in the north docks area of the city, the coming years look set to be filled with opportunity for Liverpool’s creative businesses.
Speaking on the plans, Mark Lawler of the Baltic Triangle Area Company said, “We see the emergence of the 10 Streets project as a pat on the back for what we have achieved at Baltic in building a thriving digital and creative hub.
“But far from being close to capacity here in the Baltic Triangle, we see another five to 10 years of expansion here.”
