The project is about the potential of Birkenhead to achieve a high quality living environment, encouraging people to stay in the town and attracting visitors from Liverpool. Aiming to enhance the local economy, provide job opportunities and suggest leisure activities, the project proposes a retail area inspired by the Liverpool One development. It aims to unite Birkenhead and Liverpool by improving connectivity, achieved by changing the Queensway Tunnel into an eco-friendly transportation link between the two places, which will allow access only to smart buses, electric cars and bicycles. The building programme of the area is primarily to expand the existing retail infrastructure with shops, restaurants and cafes, including green spaces, offices and two car parks which will release open land in order to provide a greatly improved public realm.
