Liverpool City Region Creative District Scheme Secures Backing

26th October 2020

A huge mixed-use development in Liverpool comprising hundreds of apartments and a hotel across a trio of towers has been backed.

The application is earmarked for a site near the Baltic Triangle.

The buildings will be between 17 and 27 storeys, which Block A – the tallest – comprising 206 apartments and a ground floor commercial unit.

Block B will accommodate 204 apartments, with the two stores and an art gallery on the ground and lower ground floors.

Finally, Block C will comprise 228 apartments and a 204-bed hotel.

Elsewhere, 178 parking spaces are proposed while a host of public realm works have been lined up.

A planning statement submitted to Liverpool City Council noted that the plans would lead to the redevelopment of a “key prominent site” and further encourage substantial new investment to the area.

It would also generate about 1,000 construction jobs.

A report to the authority’s planning committee, which has now granted approval, said: “The development would address a prominent void in the existing urban form on the edge of the Baltic Triangle, and the taller building elements within the World Heritage Site’s identified Secondary Tall Building Cluster would introduce distinctive architecture at this key southern gateway location to the city centre, adding further variety to the Liverpool skyline.

“The active building frontages and areas of public realm would increase activity, animation and vibrancy of the local environment.”
