Developer Palladium Group is proposing a 50,000 commercial property development in south Liverpool. Tony McDonough reports
Developer Palladium Group is looking to build two 25,000 sq ft industrial units on the old Liverpool Airport site in south Liverpool.
Located on what is now Liverpool International Business Park in Speke, Place North West has reported that the new units would offer ancillary office space, a service yard and car parking facilities. They will also include cycle bays, electric vehicle charging points and solar panels.
Spencer Bourne, chairman of Palladium Group, said: “We’re very excited to be bringing the site forward, it’s the last remaining site within Liverpool Business Park, and has sat empty for a number of years.
We aim to capture the high demand for best-in-class new build industrial space with excellent green credentials and high specification. We’re looking forward to working with the team and Liverpool council over the coming months to compliment an already popular business location.”
The scheme is being designed by Cube Architecture & Design based in Manchester. Other consultants include Wainwrights, CGP, JRP, SKT Transport, E3P and Rachel Hacking Ecology. Palladium is being advised by P4 Planning.
P4 director Gillian Worden said: “The business park is within the former estate of Speke Hall and the control tower and two airplane hangars, from when the site was Speke Airport are located directly behind the application site.
“The proposed buildings will help strengthen the importance the business park plays within the community in Speke, both as a key local employer and putting Speke on the map as a significant business destination.”
