The 21,000 sq ft venue could bring 150 units and aims to drive one million people to the venue annually, after Liverpool City Council unanimously agreed planning permission for the £3.5m project today.
BOXPARK provides a food, culture and social hub and has hosted events such as live music and fan parks for live sporting events.
The historic Canning Hall will see a transformation into a food hall and events space with a large internal space with units spanning the ground floor, an internal mezzanine, and an external terrace.
Councillor Sarah Doyle, cabinet member for development and economy at Liverpool City Council, said: “The arrival of BOXPARK Liverpool will provide a welcome boost to the leisure offer in the Baltic district. The development is a significant investment creating a considerable number of jobs and now they have planning permission, I look forward to their opening.”
BOXPARK must still be granted a premises licence for the new site.
