The area was once a workshop and warehouse district handling the global trade from Liverpool’s docks during the 18th and 19th Centuries. It is now experiencing a renaissance and is quickly becoming home to a diverse range of creative and digital industries. Photographers, artists, fashion designers, digital agencies, architects, film-makers, recording studios, places to eat, nightlife venues, internationally acclaimed arts festivals and galleries exist and work alongside existing factories, workshops and warehouses.
The City Council has also made a commitment to the area improving roads and pavements and investors are bringing new life (and new use) to some stunning period architecture. Over the past 5 years its character has started to change significantly and has benefited from residential investment and investment into creative businesses including the NWDA/ERDF funded Contemporary Urban Centre and A Foundation. These new users have increased footfall in the area particularly due to events and exhibitions hosted by the various cultural and creative venues.
The Baltic Triangle is an historic area, close to the Albert Dock – Liverpool’s World Heritage Site – and Liverpool One, the city’s newest shopping zone.
