Undertaken as a project to revitalize Liverpool's sterile city center, Liverpool ONE has literally changed the landscape and lifestyle of the area. The massive complex spans a mind-boggling 17 hectares (42 acres) around the Chavasse Park and offers a host of shopping, entertainment as well as dining options. A significant amount of effort was put into the design of the center with a focus on retaining and restoring majestic old buildings as opposed to an all-new development. The result is a striking mix of classical and contemporary architecture displayed by the complex. From department stores to top names in fashion, shopping options at the center are second to none. A delight for foodies, the center is home to some of the city's top restaurants and bars. The massive 14 screen Odeon Liverpool One is the pick of the entertainment options at the center.
