Jarron will build 406 new homes at the Metalworks site in Leeds Street, Liverpool


Developer Jarron is planning to build 406 new homes, including apartments and townhouses, at a £110m development in Liverpool.

Jarron acquired the Metalworks site in Leeds Street in September 2023 for £1.7m. Another developer, Pumpfields Regeneration Company, had planned a 319-home scene for the site but this collapsed into administration in 2021.

These latest plans, which are to be submitted to the city council for consent “imminently” will see a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments across two 15-storey blocks, as well as five ‘New York City’ style townhouses.

It will also provide a range of amenity space including a residents lounge, bar, co-working space, a cinema room, gym, a running track and rooftop terrace.

Jarron says the project will see more than 380 people employed during the design, construction and operational phases.
