£30m mixed-use Baltic Triangle scheme gets thumbs up
A blueprint for a £30m mixed-use apartment scheme in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle has been approved by the city council’s planning committee.
The 20,000sq ft building will be built north of Parliament Street, bound between Grafton Street and Caryl Street.
The plans include a 145-apartment development, comprising 72 one-bedroom and 73 two-bedroom residences, including a shared terrace space and entrance lobby as well as space for shops on the ground floor.
Zerum Planning Consultants, based in Manchester, led the planning application and Falconer Chester Hall are the architects.
Zerum associate director Nikki Sills said: “The site currently offers little vitality to the areas. It is occupied by a low-grade roofing yard with an associated warehouse and office building that is set to be demolished.
“The sale of the site for development will enable the existing company to utilise the money received to expand their business in a more appropriate location.
“The new apartment block will not only provide new homes for people but it will also include a commercial unit on the ground floor, which will provide a modern outlet for a commercial tenant.”
The development will be close to the city centre and prime tourist attractions and the up-and-coming XI The Quarter, a contemporary living complex rising 25 storeys to the east.
