Investor behind the £5 billion Liverpool Waters project has released fresh renders, showing amended plans for the precinct. However, the new Everton stadium is not the one going to be built.
Just yesterday the official website of Liverpool Waters published brand new renders of the project. In order to satisfy Unesco's requirements and not threaten Liverpool's World Heritage status with the 60-hectare development, numerous changes were made to the waterfront scheme.
Spanning across 2 km of Liverpool's waterfront, the project will end with Everton's new stadium in the north, at Bramley-Moore Dock. Which also found itself in the new renders, however only as a simplified outline, not the final design.
Detailed design work is still ongoing at Meis Architects, but even these new renders give an idea of the stadium's orientation (traditional, along the north-south axis) and volume. Especially after decrease in spectacular high-rise buildings south of the stadium its size stands out in the entire scheme.
