Developer wins approval for mixed used Baltic Triangle scheme
LPS Real Estate’s project will comprise 56 apartments and 10,500 sq ft of commercial floor space on the corner of Norfolk Street and St James Street
Planners have given the go-ahead to a residential and commercial development in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle.
The scheme, designed by MgMaStudio Architecture on behalf of LPS Real Estate, will comprise 56 apartments and 10,500 sq ft of commercial floor space on the corner of Norfolk Street and St James Street.
The building’s entrance will feature a series of archways inspired by the city’s legacy of maritime warehouses, leading into a covered courtyard area with retail and leisure at ground floor and mezzanine level.
The rear core of the development will provide a flexible mix of commercial workspace, offices and studios, designed to support the creative and digital industries in the Baltic Triangle. The residential space comprises 32 two-bedroom and 24 one-bedroom apartments and features a residents’ roof garden with views towards Liverpool Cathedral.
Joseph Gervin, director at LPS Real Estate, said: “With direct views of the iconic Liverpool Cathedral, we are confident this mixed-use scheme will provide a fantastic array of high-quality new homes.”
Matthew Ashton, director at MgMaStudio, added: “This development acknowledges the specific character in the grain and uses of the Baltic, with liveable homes and commercial space that serves the creative and digital industries in the area.
“New development in this area can often displace flexible spaces suited to creative uses and the complimentary hospitality offer, so it was a key driver for this project that a mix of spaces for independent uses are built-in.”
