This mammoth ‘triple tower’ development could be coming to Liverpool as part of a £250m scheme.

Plans released exclusively to the ECHO show a 34-storey ‘triple tower’ luxury apartment block which have been planned by developers Elliot Group.

The £250m development, designed by architects Falconer Chester Hall will provide 1,015 new homes and would become the largest single private housing project in Liverpool.

Plans for the towers - which have not yet been given a name - include 63 three bed apartments, 457 two-beds, 163 one beds and 232 studios.

Elliot Lawless of Elliot Group said he wants to make a ‘statement of confidence’ for people in the city.

He said: “We wanted to create a statement of confidence for people entering the city.

The mammoth 'triple tower' development planned for Liverpool's business district

“If our proposals are approved then they will go a long way to helping Leeds Street fulfil its potential as a dramatic gateway along the northern edge of the city centre.”

Although planning permission has not yet formally been submitted, it is understood planning chiefs have welcomed the designs.

The proposals are now subject to review and discussion with Liverpool council’s planning and design officers, with a view to submitting a planning application in early September.

The land earmarked for the development is at the junction of Leeds Street and Pall Mall was purchased off-market by Elliot Group.

Elliot Group currently have more than £700m worth of projects underway in the city - including schemes for Heap’s Mill, the Baltic Triangle on Queensland Place near the University of Liverpool campus.

Looks impressive, I like this Elliot guy a lot. If this and all other the other projects they have are completed, it would have a very positive impact on the city. Hopefully next they target correcting our poor commercial offering...

I think Leeds Street has MASSIVE potential. Should be lined either side by bulky office and residential buildings. This scheme would be a good start

Obviously these are just illustrations but more of this in Pumpfields is going to add much needed depth to the skyline and make for an impressive gateway into the City Centre, Elliot had better get a move on to get on top of his ever expanding portfolio.

Non Peel developers should be piling in to Leeds Street and Pall Mall.

This won't happen. Sorry to say it. It'll end up about 10/15 storeys of red brick.

Yeah I know where you're coming from, as soon as I saw it I was thinking in a few months time we'll be presented with a revised stumpy looking building instead... But for now at least, we should stay positive and hope its not the case.

North Point across the road has set a precedent for the immediate area at 19 storeys (they'll probably get the 20 storeys they want too, as it's a modest increase). Admittedly there is a lot of room for manoeuvre between 34 and 20 storeys, but that's where any lopping off should stop. In this immediate area, there isn't a lot of red brick, indeed more modern materials are more in the ascendency, so hopefully we'll get a change from the ubiquitous.

He seems to manage running multiple sites at once (he has 6 on-site at the moment), but four of those (Queensland Place, Parliament Place, NHP1, and Royal Oak Court) will all complete within the next 2-3 months, so a few new additions (likely NHP3, Seel Street Hotel, and Falkner Place) shouldn't be a problem. This leaves the pre-construction pipeline ready for its own new additions, so everything seems to be moving along in a sensible manner.

Having heard of his first proposal along the East Lancs, it was a concern he might move away from our part of the world. However it's good to see him continue to pitch developments in Liverpool, and build on his, so far, solid track record with increasingly ambitious proposals. With the seemingly endless procrastination and little action from other developers, it's extremely pleasing and helpful to the continued development of the city to have a developer who just gets on with it, offering actual construction and completion, to back up the renders and press releases.

I think he's realised that if he builds tall in the Baltic Triangle it gets butchered, but there's no excuse to take floors off this unless there's an issue with right to light. Princes Reach managed 34 floors but I can't see any heritage issues here, I'm sure someone will have a gripe though, it's Liverpool afterall.

I’ll get excited when elliot finally builds something of real quality. All of his developments seem to rest on pre-sales and schemes of that nature......A lot of bluster but not much, as yet, actually developed. He still has that big generator sitting on the pavement outside of the baltic bakehouse.
