Looking towards the Knowledge Quarter

What is Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter? According to the prospectus which you can get as a pdf here :

Liverpool Knowledge Quarter stretches from the City’s Anglican Cathedral to the South, through the core facilities of Liverpool John

Moores University and University of Liverpool, taking in the Metropolitan Cathedral, Liverpool Science Park, Hope Street‘s cultural

offering and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine at its Northern fringe. The

Knowledge Quarter also reaches out to and includes John Moores University’s City campus on Byrom Street, an important gateway

to the city centre from north Liverpool where much of their science and technology research is based. The Quarter’s role as a centre

of learning is further enhanced by Liverpool Hope University, Liverpool Community College and Liverpool Institute for Performing

Arts (LIPA). Together these institutions house a concentration of expertise, knowledge and wealth creating potential, which we

believe is unrivalled in the UK.

We can add to those locations Copperas Hill, the old mail sorting office which is now to be developed by John Moores University.

The image above taken from the top of Hope Street shows how the new road surfaces and pavements have been continued towards the knowledge quarter. It’s well worth looking at the prospectus as it shows images of Hope Street itself, even street signs, certainly restauarants and bistros. The ambience of Hope Street being marketed here is seen as an important part of the  perceived ambience of  the Knowledge Quarter as a whole.
