Unanimous approval for the Birkenhead Town Centre Regeneration Masterplan

Birkenhead Town Centre regeneration masterplan has secured unanimous approval from the Council’s strategic sub-committee.

Gillespies, working alongside AHR, Barton Willmore, Curtins and Hannan Associates, supported The Wirral Growth Company (a JV between Muse Developments and Wirral Council) to achieve this significant milestone in the rejuvenation of Birkenhead.

The scheme proposes more than 1.4m sqft of new development, creating a transformational and flexible blueprint for the town centre that includes a new commercial office quarter boasting BREEAM ‘Excellent’ grade A office buildings, a new residential neighbourhood, redevelopment of the Birkenhead Market, and a stunning new public realm that permeates through the town centre creating an extensive green and blue network and space for the urban community to thrive.

The first phase of development is anticipated to be on-site in the middle of 2021.
