Liverpool’s St John’s Centre delayed

Liverpool Landscapes was a blog charting new discoveries, news and developments affecting Liverpool's historic environment. It was regularly updated between 2007 and 2016.

Liverpool Landscape has now been retired, and most of the less time-dependent articles moved to Historic Liverpool.

A quick snippet of bad news: like many developments all over the country, the St. John’s Shopping Centre redevelopment has been delayed by three years, the Liverpool Echo is reporting. The demand for shops has fallen as the economy slows, although the owners of the site, Land Securities, are optimistic that the demand will reach “pre-recession levels” by 2012.

St John’s was built in 1969, redevelopment which followed extensive bomb damage suffered across Liverpool city centre during the Second World War.
