Nominated for the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2009, Liverpool ONE was the first masterplan ever to be shortlisted for the prize. Designed by BDP, the masterplan brought together 20 architects to design 40 new buildings and create 1.4 million sq. feet of retail space, a 14-screen multiplex cinema and 230,000 sq. feet of restaurants, cafes and bars in addition to 600 new apartments, two hotels, offices, a five-acre park and a transport interchange.
