These aerial views show the massive Great Homer Street redevelopment taking shape ahead of its opening later this year.

The £150m Project Jennifer scheme will see land off Scotland Road transformed with a Sainsbury鈥檚 superstore, shops in a district centre, and homes.

The scheme was delayed by many years but work is now well under way and developer St Modwen says it鈥檚 on track to be completed by summer.

From Everton Park, you can now see the Sainsbury鈥檚 petrol station forecourt looking almost complete, with other buildings taking shape.

The 67,000 sq ft Sainsbury鈥檚 is almost complete ahead of its May opening, while work on the District Centre is also well under way.

Liverpool discount chains Home Bargains and B&M are both set to open large stores at the centre. The B&M store, which is set to create more than 60 jobs when it launches in spring, will include a garden centre.

Last month, The Gym Group announced it was to open a low-cost 24-hour gym at Great Homer Street.

Project Jennifer was only ever intended to be a temporary name for the development.

It was inspired by Tom Williams, now auxiliary bishop of Liverpool, who as parish priest of St Anthony鈥檚 Church in Scotland Road suggested the scheme could be named after his niece, Jennifer.

In December, St Modwen officially named the new link road through the site Jennifer Avenue. Bishop Williams and his niece Jennifer Sutton both attended.
