EDT’s base on Great Homer Street lies at the heart of a £150 million regeneration programme: Project Jennifer
The area is to undergo a major redevelopment programme by leading regeneration specialists St Modwen, working in partnership with Liverpool City Council.
The regeneration of Great Homer Street will create:
- A new district centre, replacing the existing local centre
- Liverpool’s largest food store, Sainsbury's
- 80,000 sq ft of new shops (small , medium and large units)
- New market facilities, indoor and outdoor, provided at Dryden Street are now open
- New homes (at Dryden Street by Liverpool Mutual Homes and Marwood by Liverpool Housing Trust)
- Huge improvements to the local environment
- 900 free car parking spaces and a petrol filling station
- Links to Everton Park where further exciting proposals are being drawn up by Liverpool City Council (Heritage trail and skate park)
The new state-of-the-art school, Notre Dame Catholic College, opened in September 2013.
St. Modwen, working in partnership with Liverpool City Council started work on site this year. This includes preparatory work for the Sainsbury’s foodstore, new shops, public spaces and highways works. With the new shops are due to open in Summer 2016.
