The Commercial District is a designated zone in the heart of Liverpool with ‘business improvement district’ (BID) status.

Bounded by Leeds Street to the North and the Strand to the West and connected to the retail core by historic Castle Street, the area boasts impressive architecture and iconic contemporary design.

The Commercial District’s vibrant business community consists of some of the UK’s top wealth management and professional services firms as well as public sector organisations, retail and tourism operators and hundreds of SME’s.

Over the last five years, the areas around Old Hall Street and Castle Street have undergone a dramatic renaissance and millions of pounds of regeneration money has made a huge difference. But this is just the beginning. BID status now means the Commercial District is entering a new phase of exciting development that will dramatically transform the opportunities and environment for everyone working and living in the area.
