Sourced Development Group and Network plan to build 507 apartments in Ten Streets


Planners are recommending approval for a major residential development in the Ten Streets regeneration area of Liverpool comprising 507 apartments.

Located next to the Merseyrail Northern Line and between the city centre and Everton FC’s new docklands stadium, the scheme would include four blocks, three on Love Lane and one at Pall Mall.

It will include a mix of 147 one-bedroom, 330 two-bedroom, and 30 three-bedroom apartments, all for sale, with 145 designated as ‘affordable’. This means they will be sold at no more than 80% of the local market rate.

Liverpool developer Sourced Development Group and Network Rail are jointly behind the project which will see the blocks rise in height from seven storeys at the front to 10-11 storeys to the rear.

Although the plans would see the demolition of a number of vacant buildings the developer says disused railway arches will be utilised to create 10,000 sq ft of new commercial space.

When the plans were first unveiled in August 2023 consultancy WSP drew up a planning statement which claimed Liverpool City Council’s planning team was “supportive of the development proposals”.

This is confirmed with the recommendation from officers that the scheme be approved at the next planning meeting on Tuesday, April 23.

Officers wrote: “The proposal would complement the residential development approved on the adjacent plots.

“The proposal would create a positive street frontage to a large section of Pall Mall and Love Lane and improve the pedestrian environment linking the city centre to areas further north.

“The application takes account of the sensitivities of neighbours in its layout and environmental considerations.”

Development of the riverside stretch between the city centre at the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock is increasing. Peel’s Liverpool Waters is seeing a number of developments coming out of the ground.

And last week LBN revealed that Home Bargains billionaire Tom Morris is teaming up with Beetham developer Hugh Frost to create a new residential development on the King Edward Triangle that would include the tallest skyscraper Liverpool has ever seen.
