New Chinatown is one of the most important and exciting development projects in the UK today.
With the support of the UK Government the project is one of the big ideas underpinning their vision for a Northern Powerhouse. As the UK becomes the number one destination for Chinese investment, no other project offers an opportunity to change the face of a major city and create a development with such iconic and symbolic significance.
New Chinatown is a city within a city. It is the burgeoning energy and dynamism of modern China transplanted into the heart of an historic World Heritage City. Home to Europe’s oldest Chinatown, today Liverpool is the beginning of a new chapter in the relationship between the UK and China.
A heart at the centre
New Chinatown is at the beating heart of Liverpool. Close to the city’s historic Chinese quarter, the development sits at the intersection of many of Liverpool’s most vibrant districts and close to its many outstanding landmarks and attractions.
In the shadow of the city’s magnificent Anglican cathedral and on the edge of the fashionable Baltic Quarter, New Chinatown is only a short walk from Liverpool’s bustling retail area and its World Heritage waterfront. Surrounded by stunning architectural landmarks and cutting-edge cultural attractions, New Chinatown is the last piece in the jigsaw in the multi-billion pound transformation of Liverpool City Centre following its designation as a European Capital of Culture.
As the city centre expands south to meet historic dockland neighbourhoods, plans are afoot to create a new metro station to connect New Chinatown and The Baltic to the city’s established urban rail network.
New Chinatown will be the new jewel in the city’s offer – a unique destination celebrating Liverpool’s historic links to China, but also signalling a new era of partnership and investment.
