London’s award-winning dining, retail and leisure group, BOXPARK announces its sixth site and first BOXPARK-branded development outside of the capital as it heads to Liverpool in 2023.  

BOXPARK has agreed a 15-year lease with Terracotta Asset Management Limited for The Canning Hall site in the south of Liverpool city, which sits within the Baltic Triangle district, forming part of the Cains Brewery Village estate. 

Built in the 1980’s, the tall portal frame warehouse building will be transformed into a stunning food and entertainment destination, featuring a large internal space with units set over the ground floor, a small internal mezzanine, and an external terrace.   

Formerly an old industrial zone, the area has established itself as a large and growing cluster of creative industries, offices, restaurants, bars and leisure units since the mid 2000’s. The famous food, events and retail development will be an exciting addition to Liverpool’s existing food and beverage landscape, becoming a unique cultural and dining destination with approximately 10 units held by independent food operators.    

Spanning 16,000 sq. ft and holding 400 internal covers plus 200 external covers, the proposals for BOXPARK Liverpool will include around 10 kitchen units, three internal bars with additional external bars. In addition, there will be a 5,430 sq. ft external terrace to offer al fresco dining and intimate events.    

Set to open in late 2023, BOXPARK Liverpool will be the first of its kind outside of London with three sites in Shoreditch, Croydon and Wembley.  

Earlier this year, BOXPARK announced the roll-out of its sibling, premium food & beverage concept, BoxHall, with sites opening in Bristol and Liverpool Street, London in 2023. The announcement of BOXPARK Liverpool is part of the group’s national expansion plans following investment from LDC, the UK’s leading mid-market private equity firm. 

BOXPARK CEO Simon Champion, comments on the exciting news: “We are thrilled to announce such a fantastic location for our next BOXPARK venture. Our team have searched extensively for sites in Liverpool since 2016, having considered multiple locations across the city. As a dynamic and fast-growing business, we hope BOXPARK will be an exciting addition to Liverpool’s buzzing food and drink scene, offering an all-day food and entertainment destination.”
