Roof Garden, Chavasse Park, Paradise Street Project, Liverpool
Principal Award: Hard Landscape Construction Cost over £1.5m.
The Paradise Street Development was a major regeneration project covering approximately 42 acres, which formed the major part of the redevelopment of Liverpool City Centre. The Paradise Street Project included the construction of over 30 individual buildings providing 1.65 million sq. ft. of new shops, hotels, housing, leisure, and other facilities. Amongst robust new travel plans – new bus stations, and shop mobility options – a new underground car park was created to serve the development.
At the heart of the public realm development a new public park was developed comprising in excess of 20,000m sq. ft. of soft and hard landscaping. The park cascades over three stories of parking, retail and internal public space. Physically forming the park (as a roof garden) utilized DENDRO-SCOTT™ Root Barrier. It involved working within tight time-frames and achieving levels of quality inherent in the Design to bring to life the Client Team’s aspirations. The space is now a dynamic and versatile, yet striking, town centre urban park.
