Works commence January 2016 on a major mixed-use scheme to regenerate the derelict site of the Liverpool hospital where Sir Paul McCartney was born.
Led by a new 18,750 sq. ft. Aldi store designed by The Harris Partnership, the scheme will also deliver nearly 200 new homes off Rice Lane in the Walton area of the city, generating hundreds of jobs for the local community in the process.
Occupying a key gateway into Liverpool, the 12.65 acre site fell into disuse following the closure of Walton Hospital in 2010 where Sir Paul McCartney’s mother once worked on the maternity unit.
The residential aspect of the scheme proposes a mix of houses, apartments and bungalows to be developed by Mulberry Homes in partnership with social housing provider Riverside Group.
