Developer Legacie unveils plans for £200m residential scheme on the edge of Liverpool city centre comprising 656 apartments. Tony McDonough reports
Legacie Developments is proposing to build four towers on the edge of Liverpool city centre comprising 656 apartments.
This £200m scheme will be called The Gateway and will be located in Leeds Street close to the city’s central business district. It will offer a selection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
Other features include a garden spa, complete with an infrared sauna, swimming pool, ice bath, oxygen chamber, and experience showers.
There will also be two gyms, two resident lounges complete with a cinema room, landscaped gardens, coffee shop and convenience store and other commercial amenities.
The complex will be a similar scale to Legacie’s £90m Parliament Square development which is located on the edge of the Baltic Triangle. The Gateway will see more than 250 people employed during construction including 25 apprenticeships.
John Morley, chief executive of Legacie Developments, said: “We are incredibly excited to be announcing plans for The Gateway today and adding to Legacie’s substantial and growing portfolio of quality residential and commercial developments in the region.
“This will be an impressive and vibrant scheme which extends the reach of the city centre and builds a community comparable to what we are delivering at Parliament Square.
“This site has lay vacant for far too long, and I am pleased that we have stepped forward with a scheme that will be a catalyst for further regeneration, provide an economic boost and deliver something the city can be proud of.”
International sales agent, RWinvest, has once again partnered with Legacie Developments to promote the scheme.
Director of RWinvest, Michael Gledhill, added: “The Gateway will be a stunning addition to Liverpool’s buoyant housing offer.
“With world-class facilities on-site, it will form a key part of the emerging Northern Quarter and help attract further investment as we continue to see huge demand for luxury living in the city.”
Liverpool law firm Hill Dickinson advised Legacie, led by the firm’s head of property, Alex McCann, supported by senior associate Jon Pearson-Basudev and associate Jonathan Lynch.
