Grosvenor Britain & Ireland has announced that Liverpool One will double its outdoor seating capacity as part of its plans to support operators and safely accommodate visitors as they return to the destination from April 12.
The destination has worked with its occupiers to facilitate an additional 610 covers, all in keeping with social distancing guidelines.
Half of the new covers will bolster the existing outdoor seating areas of Liverpool One’s restaurants, cafés, bars and leisure experiences, while the remainder will form part of pop-up activations across Chavasse Park alongside new dedicated communal spaces across the destination.
The centre’s reopening plans include the return of ‘safe circles’ painted on the grass on Chavasse Park, first introduced in summer 2020 – socially distanced areas encourage visitors to the enjoy the destination’s five-acre park in the heart of the city.
Alison Clegg, managing director of asset management at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, commented: “We have a responsibility to reassure visitors they can return safely, while also inspiring them to spend time enjoying Liverpool Onewith friends and family as the lockdown begins to lift. At the same time, we are very conscious our tenants need continued support. The additional covers and reintroduction of the social distanced circles on Chavasse Park achieve these two objectives, creating more opportunities for tenants to welcome visitors as they return to Liverpool One.”
