One of Liverpool waterfront’s newest residential developments – the £21m Plaza 1821 – has passed a major milestone with its ‘topping-out’ ceremony.
Plaza 1821 will be a private rental sector (PRS) development, undertaken by Peel L&P at its £5bn Liverpool Waters development in Princes Dock. It is named after the year Princes Dock was opened.
Once completed it will offer 105 one and two-bedroom apartments along with dedicated amenity space on the ground floor. It will be managed by Liverpool-based Redwing Living, a subsidiary of the Regenda Group – and is being built by contractor Vermont.
Darran Lawless, development director at Liverpool Waters part of Peel L&P, said: “Plaza 1821 is the first of three PRS developments to start on site at Princes Dock and is one of numerous schemes underway a part of the Liverpool Waters masterplan, so this is an incredibly important milestone for us.
“It has been a pleasure to work with the team at Regenda helping us turn the vision into reality, creating a high-quality residential space with spectacular views of the River Mersey and the surrounding waterfront.”
Plaza 1821 is one of a trio of new residential blocks being built close together on Princes Dock. Work on Moda Living’s £82m, 34-storey skyscraper, the Lexington is also well advanced. However, work on Your Housing Group’s £55m Hive City Docks scheme has stalled with a possible restart in August.
Fiona Coventry, managing director of Redwing Living, added: “The topping out ceremony marks a significant moment in the development of this landmark project for Redwing Living and The Regenda Group.
“The internal designs for Plaza 1821 are fantastic and we are looking forward to seeing the individual apartments and commercial space progress over the coming months.”
