Legacie has completed a £2.6m project in the city centre, restoring retail units totalling 3,400 sq ft, which will include a spa due to open in the ground floor in August
A row of shops in Liverpool’s Dale Street have been transformed following the £2.6m project to bring a previously derelict building back into use.
Legacie Development Group has completed its Dale Street shops renovation, which has seen the site restored back to its original state. The new retail units, totalling 3,400 sq ft, will include a spa that will occupy the entire ground floor and will open August.
All 18 apartments in the upper floors of the building are now also fully let. Legacie worked closely with Liverpool City Council and its planning and conservation team to create a build that was in keeping with the heritage of the listed properties within the area.
The Dale Street shops project is the second phase of redevelopment undertaken by Legacie, following completion of the adjacent property, 99-107 Dale Street, in 2016.
The company has also taken on various projects across the North West including Ropemaker Place on Renshaw Street, Water Street’s Reliance House and Azure Residence in North Liverpool.
In statement Legacie said: “It was a shame that the original listed building had to be demolished on structural safety grounds, however Legacie Developments was passionate about restoring the building to its former glory.
“Our aim was to respect the heritage and history of the Dale Street shops and so working very closely with Liverpool City Council and its planning/conversation team was essential to develop a project that was suitable in the context of the adjacent listed properties in the area.
“We’re delighted with the completed project and are thrilled that it has received such positive feedback. It shows what can be achieved on sensitive sites when a restoration is in the right hands.”
