The Symphony Liverpool

Downing’s urban projects division is operational in four northern cities - Liverpool, Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester.

Driving each of our developments is a desire to breathe new life and vitality into complex inner city sites. We are also committed listeners, working in partnership with local authorities, conservation bodies and communities to deliver inspiring schemes that elevate their surroundings.
