#20 - Revitalising urban spaces with creative hubs with Lynn Haime, Baltic Creative
🎙️The No Bullsh*t Property Podcast is back for 2024! 🎙️Tune in to the first episode of the year as we navigate the thriving creative hubs that are revitalising urban spaces in Liverpool. Joining Howard and Paul as the first guest of the year is Lynn Haime, CEO of Baltic Creative. Lynn discusses Baltic Creative's approach that creates  flourishing ecosystems where profits circle back to nurture a community of digital and creative talents in Liverpool. In the conversation, Howard and Paul draw parallels to Elevator, CERT's creative hub in the Baltic Triangle and Baltic Creative's neighbour, emphasising how Elevator mirrors a shared dedication to community values.We then delve into the ingredients that make such a community - from the importance of a vibrant events calendar to fostering tenant relationships. Lynn highlights the importance of creating opportunities for networking, collaboration, and knowledge-sharing among the diverse range of businesses in the Baltic Triangle.Wrapping up, we explore the potential for urban transformation, looking at the Baltic Triangle's evolution from a neglected district to a vibrant hub of creativity, nightlife, and residential innovation. We ponder if this model could serve as a blueprint for other areas hungry for change. The discussion doesn't stop at geography; we touch on the importance of user-friendly lease terms in attracting businesses and how events like Eurovision can catapult a city like Liverpool onto the world stage.Have something you want us to discuss?
