Four proposed residential developments in Liverpool designed by local architects Falconer Chester Hall (FCH) have all secured planning consent.
The schemes offer a total of 768 new residential units on behalf of separate clients and they are:
- Brunswick Quay on the city’s waterfront – a development up to 12-storeys to include 240 apartments plus 1,240 sq m of commercial space across five units for North West Industrial Estates.
- At St Anne’s Street, the committee approved a slight change to an existing consent for the building of three residential blocks for Citipads which will now house 325 apartments.
- 127 apartments and ground floor commercial units will comprise a scheme at Rose Place for Legacie Developments.
- A development by Vinco which fronts both Aigburth Road and Alexandra Drive in South Liverpool.
“We are working across the city on a variety of projects and it’s exciting for us to see new development happening in both the North and South of the city as well as on the river front,” said FCH managing director Adam Hall.
Brunswick Quay is a H-shaped building sitting on what is currently a surface car park and will house a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments in the upper floors with the commercial units at ground and mezzanine levels.
“Visually the building helps to knit together residential and commercial areas and will provide an appropriate focal point at the south end of Liverpool’s waterfront dock system,” added North West Industrial Estates director, Alastair Shepherd.
“We think this will be a brilliant place to live, with great quality green spaces and stunning views to the waterfront and Wales.”
