A £5m apartment development in Liverpool has been granted planning consent in the latest win for fast-growing Liverpool architecture practice Studio RBA.

The 26-unit scheme on Marlborough Street for developer/contractor SEP Construction Services will commence on site later this summer, with completion in winter 2022.

It will provide 23 one-bed units and three two-bed apartments in the rapidly developing Vauxhall neighbourhood to the north of the city centre.

Studio RBA director Adam Morgan said: “This is our second project for SEP and one we’re particularly pleased to secure consent. It’s a sensitive in-fill and will re-instate lost massing and activity to the street, bringing valuable footfall and animation to the area.

The development rises to six storeys at the front, dropping to three storeys at the rear elevation, facing Pickop Street.

There is no parking provision as the developer’s aim is to encourage maximum use of sustainable forms of transport in what is a well connected neighbourhood.

Other consultants on the project include The Planning Studio, Shape Engineering (civils and structure) and Davies Partnership (building services).
