While the Three Graces have always been the iconic buildings on Liverpool’s skyline, the images that define the city to the world, look beyond that and the city has seen a lot of change over the years.
Over the last three decades, since our business was established, Liverpool has undergone many changes due to urban development and economic growth. As we have grown as a firm, Cara Group has enjoyed watching and being part of the city’s change from a construction point of view and also as residents.
Cara Group is proud to have undertaken some notable schemes in Liverpool in the last 30 years including the Royal Hospital, Baltic Triangle, hotels, high rise residential schemes and schools including Archbishop Beck, Blanch, Notre Dame, St Hilda’s and Bellerive.
While the Royal Liver, Cunard, and Port of Liverpool Buildings have remained prominent features, Liverpool’s Waterfront underwent significant redevelopment in the 2000s and plays a key part in many of the city’s celebrations, recently hosting the Eurovision Village with images of it beamed worldwide.
Liverpool One opened in 2008 and it seems hard to recall Chavasse Park as a grassed, shop free area, as it now has 170 stores and 70 million visitors a year. The M&S Bank Arena and ACC Liverpool opened in 2008, providing a distinctive addition to Liverpool’s skyline.
As a university city, Liverpool has seen the construction of accommodation buildings to cater to its growing student population and Cara Group has been honoured to work on many of them including Aura, Greenbank and Renshaw Street student accommodation.
We’ve seen so much regeneration and we can’t wait to see what the next 30 years will bring for our brilliant city, and the businesses and people within it.
