Following the planning application for the redevelopment of Wolstenholme Square in Liverpool, Nation, the home of Cream, will be closing its doors for a final time at the end of 2015 to make way for an exciting new subterranean music venue on the same hallowed ground as the iconic venue.

The £40m year-long development designed by Liverpool architects Falconer Chester Hall will transform Liverpool's historic Wolstenholme Square and will see the creation of new buildings ranging up to 10 storeys, a new passageway through to Wolstenholme Square to Seel Street, as well as featuring ground floor commercial space for cafes, restaurants, shops and a new home for the legendary Cream.

The new subterranean music venue remains on Nation's original footprint, and the designs retain its 'industrial' and 'underground' feel, as well as featuring state of the art sound the new multi-room imprint will also be adaptable to create one cavernous space, offering better production and broadening its appeal to attract and become an exciting new live music venue for the city.

A Cream spokesperson said: "The Elliot Group have taken on board the importance of retaining the cultural and musical hub that Wolstenholme Square offers and our ideas and ethos for the new venue. Ourselves and the thousands of people who have passed through Nation's doors hold a deep attachment to the venue and what it stands for and the plans present us with an incredible opportunity to create an exciting new music venue for the city"

Nation, which has been the home of the legendary Cream since it began in 1992 has been the mecca for dance music fans around the world attracting thousands of clubbers every week. Having closed its doors as a weekly venue back in 2002, Cream has continued to host a series of sell out parties throughout the year attracting some of the worlds biggest electronic artists.
