Liverpool developer Legacie has released new images of its £90m Parliament Square residential and commercial scheme in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle.
Legacie secured planning consent for the project, which comprises 500 apartments, in September following talks with objectors who included Baltic Area CIC, which has played a pivotal role in the transformation of the area.
There was initial anger when the scheme was first unveiled when it became clear it would lead to the demolition of the popular Constellations entertainment venue. There was also concern at the possible loss of green space.
However, Legacie met with Baltic Area CIC and promised to work with them to produce a scheme that would enhance the Baltic district, which in less than a decade has been transformed from a collection of abandoned warehouses into a thriving digital, creative and leisure hub.
And the owners of Constellations have pledged to set up a similar venue in the area.
As well as the apartments, which will be spread across four separate blocks, Parliament Square will also include include a public plaza comprising of shops and restaurants.
Newly-released CGI images of the Greenland Street development reveal panoramic rooftop views, high-spec interiors and a luxury rooftop spa which will be available to those resident.
Prices for the one, two and three-bedroom apartments will start at £94,000 and work on the scheme will start in late 2019. A spokesperson for Legacie Developments said: “These images demonstrate our intention to create a first class residential development on the edge of the city centre.
“Parliament Square will be unique in that it will offer all of the facilities of a hotel on a residential complex. There will be restaurants, boutique shops and amenities including a gym and luxurious rooftop spa that will be available to residents.
