Liverpool developer John Morley says work on projects such as the £90m Parliament Square will continue despite the coronavirus crisis.
Mr Morley’s Legacie Developments has started work on the scheme on the edge of Baltic Triangle which will include 500 apartments across four blocks and a public plaza comprising shops, restaurants and a gym.
He says Liverpool must try to “build its way through the coronavirus crisis” amid fears of economic decline as a result of the virus spreading. He insisted measures have been put in place to support any staff affected by the outbreak of the disease.
Mr Morley explained: “Like other major developers, Legacie is taking all precautions to continue working safely and effectively during these challenging times and we our offering full support to our staff and stakeholders.
“Though we are aware that this crisis is affecting many businesses, our work will continue as best we can because we believe that building our way through will help keep Liverpool’s economy as strong as it can be. Work on Parliament Square and our other developments is continuing. It is important we keep going as we want to help build the city’s future.”
The first phase of the Parliament Square development is scheduled to be completed by summer 2021.
