Everton Football Club will be speaking at our Future Cities Forum in February about its new stadium in Bramley-Moore Dock,
The event will be held at RIBA North in Liverpool and will an important regeneration forum in our series of discussions this year, highlighting the development of our great northern cities, their changing architectural landscapes and economic fortunes.
The new Everton stadium will be part of a £5.5 billion scheme to transform the docklands in Liverpool, north of the Pier Head. A cruise liner terminal on the waterfront and new homes in three soaring towers are also part of the proposed developments. The entire scheme is set to become one of the largest in the UK.
Originally closed off to the public, the recent opening up of the docks has led to walking tours and entertainment events, encouraging a cultural value to the development.
The existing Everton Ground, Goodison Park, will be re-developed for the community by the club and this will include healthcare, leisure and housing improvements to the area. Eighty-five per cent of the Everton fan base live within a five mile radius of Goodison Park which is one of the oldest professional football grounds in the country.
Richard Kenyon, Chief Executive of Everton in the Community and part of Everton FC's leadership team will join CBRE Head of National Planning Iain Jenkinson to tell the story of this important project at our discussions in Liverpool.
