Everton FC: Stadium at Bramley Moore Dock will boost economy by £1bn
Everton’s plans for a new ground at Bramley Moore Dock will give the local economy a £1bn boost, according to new data.
New projections from property firm CBRE, which is working with the Blues on the stadium project, estimate that the development will add over £900m to the region’s Gross Value Added (GVA) before it is even completed.
More than 12,000 jobs would be created and around £255m spent locally during the construction phase.
Once complete, CBRE said the stadium would contribute about £94m to the city annually through hotel occupancy, retail and tourist spend.
CBRE’s senior director of planning and development, Iain Jenkinson, said: “This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for Liverpool to embrace one of the most significant and unique regenerative investments the city has ever seen.
“The economic contribution to the city of Liverpool through Everton’s new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock, the catalytic effect it will have on surrounding neighbourhoods, and the equally important Goodison legacy project make this a package of projects, a game-changer for the city. In addition, it will further enhance the city’s international reputation for delivering major transformational projects on such a large scale.”
