Imagine an area where musicians rub shoulders with photographers, artists, fashion designers, digital agencies, architects, film-makers, young entrepreneurs, recording studios and there’s a bunch of drinking holes and eateries, nightlife venues, internationally acclaimed arts festivals and galleries to drop-by on. That’s us… Quietly, under the radar, just getting on with our stuff.

The Baltic Triangle is a historic city central area, which is enjoying a steady renaissance making it one of ‘the’ places to set up shop and hang out. Just a stone’s throw from Albert Dock – the city’s World Heritage Site – and shopping hot-spot Liverpool One, the Triangle has been reclaimed and resurrected by a growing colony of creative people, entrepreneurs and their combined businesses.

Something of a hidden gem, (and yes, you can read that as ‘up-and-coming’), the Baltic Triangle has been dubbed: “the cultural quarter”, “the city’s workshop”, “Liverpool’s answer to New York’s Meat-Packing District”, “the creative playground”.

All are right in varying degrees but inhabitants resist the need for an ultimate definition – they simply buy into an unwritten creative policy that says ‘anything positive goes’. And it works.

The Baltic Triangle’s impressive architecture tells its own story about the area’s glory days when 40 per cent of the world’s trade was passing through the city’s docks during the 18th and 19th centuries. Commanding the area’s skyline are numerous Grade II Listed warehouses that are so big they make you blink and once stored shipping merchants’ cargo and ‘Gustav Adolph’, a historically important red brick Scandinavian church.

In between, old meets new.

Rambling out-house buildings advanced in their years adjacent to modern industrial units that criss-cross in the northern side with residential apartments, land and buildings available for sale, a Hampton by Hilton hotel and new businesses in a hurry to take advantage of the area’s benefits. It’s no wonder property developers with an eye for potential and emerging trends are investing here. And as Liverpool City Council’s improvement works in the area continue apace, this proposition becomes increasingly attractive. It feels as though the Triangle’s renaissance is definitely here to stay.
