The team behind the emergence of Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle as a digital and creative hub is looking to replicate its model in other areas of Merseyside.

Community interest company Baltic Creative has marked a decade in Liverpool by announcing plans to create new hubs in Southport and Liverpool’s Fabric District, and it will also “explore opportunities” in North Liverpool, Bootle and Birkenhead.

Currently, Baltic Creative manages 118,000 sq ft in the Baltic Triangle, which is home to over 180 businesses and over 600 employees.

Mark Lawler, MD of Baltic Creative CIC, said: “What has been achieved over the past 10 years is greater than what we originally thought possible and that is largely down to the dedication of our team and the instant support we received from the digital and creative community. 

“There’s no doubt that there are challenges ahead, especially with the current political uncertainty that we’re facing. We will of course respond to this in the most appropriate manner, but our plans continue to be bold, and we are more passionate than ever about delivering Baltic Creative space across the region and in doing so, supporting one of the city’s most flourishing sectors.”

As a community interest company, Baltic Creative reinvests all its profits back into property, tenants or the sector. It operates a strict lettings policy meaning that space in its buildings, which include Creative Campus, Northern Lights and the recently launched Digital House, is only occupied by creative and digital businesses.
 
“The digital and creative sector in the Liverpool City Region remains strong and is growing at a rate of 2.5 times faster than other sectors,” added Fiona Armstrong-Gibb, the new chair of Baltic Creative CIC.
