Liverpool has had a strong Chinese community for many decades and as the UK and China seek to strengthen economic and financial links, we believe Chinese investors will be enthusiastically backing the Chinatown complex.

In a unique fusion that celebrates the old and modern of this dynamic city, the new Chinatown Quarter is considered one of the most ambitious city centre builds in the UK today.

Planning has been secured for a three-stage project development of Chinatown, with a completion of the first phase scheduled for mid-2017.

Hopwood House, the northwest's premium property investment specialists, are marketing New Chinatown, a development which will comprise 790 apartments overlooking the city's iconic Anglican Cathedral.

The district, which aims to set a new benchmark in urban living, is within easy walking distance of both the city centre shopping district, the student quarter and the UNESCO Heritage status waterfront district.

Plans are also being laid by developer North Point Global Management as part of a masterplan for the wider Chinatown district to identify further areas of new development.

Liverpool's links to China
Mark Burns, co-director of Manchester-based Hopwood House, said: "Liverpool has had a strong Chinese community for many decades and as the UK and China seek to strengthen economic and financial links, we believe Chinese investors will be enthusiastically backing the Chinatown complex."

He pointed to Liverpool's four universities as potential buy-to-let and straight rental markets for students, of which more than 10,000 emanate from China alone.

New Chinatown is the burning energy and dynamism of modern China transplanted into a World Heritage City. Hosting Europe’s oldest Chinatown, Liverpool is set for a new era in relations between the UK and China.

Liverpool's history has, over the last 200 years, clicked in rhythm with the Chinese community. Its Chinese sailors helped keep open Britain's lifeline during World War II, businesses and cultural celebrations brought energy to the city’s growing Chinatown, while its long-established trading links were cemented when it became twinned with Shanghai.

Design philosophy
Given its past, new generations of Chinese are now rediscovering and tapping into the potential that Liverpool heralds today for the future. Not only a great tourism spot, Liverpool is one of the few places to have a campus in Suzhou Province, in China.

With those elements in mind, Hopwood House is now creatively marketing the Chinatown district as a place to come, stay, study and live.

The design philosophy has been influenced both by modern Chinese architecture, traditional Chinese design philosophy and the ancient art form of Zhezhi. Underpinning the whole project is the idea and motif of the awakening dragon – a powerful symbol of China’s resurgence and status as a new global power.

The Chinatown development has been influenced in consultation with Liverpool’s Chinese community and will create new spaces for local businesses and cultural organisations. A unique shopping experience also awaits.

Project details
The project will offer a mix of one-bed, two-bed, two-bed duplex and three-bed duplex apartments, and three-bed town houses. Prices start from £106,994 and investors can take advantage of optional furniture packs.

The beautifully designed living spaces offer five-star management and concierge services and a superb array of leisure facilities, including a luxury spa. From here residents can enjoy panoramic vistas over Liverpool’s historic waterfront and its epic architectural backdrops.

As an example, the three-bed townhouse option is ideal for a family or perfect for a group of friends to share. These 118.3 sqm three-storey properties have front door access at street level and come with a front garden.

Chinatown connections
Liverpool is well connected to all parts of the UK, whether it be via road, rail, plane or port.

The city boasts two international airports - Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Manchester Airport - within a 30-minute drive from the city. Liverpool is also at the heart of the UK’s motorway network and has excellent rail connections, only two hours from London.
