BOXPARK has secured planning permission for a new Liverpool venue which will open later this year.

The company has agreed a 15-year lease with Cains Brewery Village for the site, located within the city’s Baltic Triangle.

The venue will be transformed into a food hall and events destination featuring a large internal space with units set over the ground floor, a small internal mezzanine and an external terrace.

BOXPARK chief executive Simon Champion said: “We are delighted to receive the news today that BOXPARK Liverpool has planning approval as our team has put a lot of work into bringing the Canning Hall at Cains Brewery back to life.

“We're very excited to bring jobs, and a lot of fun, to the Baltic Triangle which we see as an area with great prospects over the next few years"

BOXPARK is investing more than £3.5m into the Baltic Triangle and it is expected to bring 150 new jobs to the local community. On top of this, the scheme will also drive significant volume of footfall to the area, with more than 1m people expected to visit each year.

Exciting events offering

Spanning 21,000 sq ft and holding 400 internal covers plus 200 external covers, BOXPARK Liverpool will include 10 kitchen units, three internal bars with added external bars. There will also be a 5,430 sq ft external garden to offer al fresco dining and intimate events.

The site will be the first of its kind outside of London adding to the three current BOXPARK venues in Shoreditch, Croydon and Wembley.

Cains Brewery Village managing director Harj Dusanj added: “Today marks an exciting day for Cains Brewery Village with the planning approval of BOXPARK Liverpool. It takes a village to nurture the regeneration of Cains Brewery and we are thankful for all parties that have worked hard to make this next chapter a truly exciting one.

“The inward investment into Liverpool is a testament to our home of pioneering creatives that continue to echo the entrepreneurial spirit of Robert Cain."

Not-to-be-missed moments

He continued: “BOXPARK shares our passion and enthusiasm to showcase the best independent street-food businesses with world class entertainment in the heart of the Baltic Triangle. Within BOXPARK Liverpool, expect greater live experiences and opportunities to engage and celebrate the not-to-be-missed moments at Cains Brewery Village."

Councillor Sarah Doyle, Cabinet member for development and economy Sarah Doyle said the arrival of BOXPARK Liverpool would provide a “welcome boost” to leisure in the Baltic district.

The development would be a significant investment in creating a considerable number of jobs, added Doyle, who “looked forward” to the opening.
