Investor unveils £86m Liverpool City Region residential development Plan
A £86m plan to build more than 500 apartments in Liverpool and create hundreds of jobs has been submitted.
Investor Nextdom Property, which is based in the city, is behind the proposal for land in Pall Mall.
If approved by Liverpool City Council, Block A will rise from eight to 17 stories and provide 362 new homes while Block B would stretch up to ten storeys and feature 188 flats.
Designed by Falconer Chester Hall’s Liverpool office, the plan also includes more than 8,000 sq ft of ground-floor commercial and retail space as well as 115 car parking spaces.
The homes would be a mix of one, two and three-bed apartments.
Nikki Sills from planning consultancy Zerum, which is advising Nextdom, said: “The area is in transition as the city centre expands northwards and the development will provide much-needed housing numbers and commercial space.
“The cycling provision of 1:1 supports what is a highly sustainable location, given the site’s proximity to the business district, Moorfield underground station and the local bus network.
“The scheme seeks to reform the streetscape of Pall Mall and connect this area of Pumpfields into the wider business district.
“The developer sees these sites as critical to the linking of the Pall Mall/Exchange Station investment area to the wider 10 Streets strategic development zone.”
Quentin Keohane of Falconer Chester Hall added:
“The architecture picks up on the historic warehouse/dockland nature of the site with the use of brickwork, arches, and vertical elevation emphasis to provide a modern take on the traditional buildings of the area.
“The scheme provides an active commercial frontage onto Pall Mall, and with thoughtful landscaping will provide a quality urban environment in what is currently an underutilised area of the city centre.”
The applicant said the scheme would create approximately 200 full-time equivalent construction jobs during the build phase.
