That'd be great news! If that is the case, please keep us updated.

Here's a couple of clearer renders of the proposed Knowledge Quarter expansion.

Yes, this is kind of scale and density the city needs...particularly for the commercial district expansion around Moorfields.

11 Oct 2016, 15:16

Developer Anwyl Construction have been given the go-ahead for a £35m student accommodation development in Liverpool city centre.

Liverpool City Council planning committee on Tuesday approved plans for the North Wales-based company to start work on the development of 566 apartments on the Norton Street site of Liverpool’s former National Express coach station.

It is Anwyl’s first major development in Liverpool and will be made up of two blocks, one of 16 storeys and another of 10 storeys, at 45-degrees to each other and facing onto the busy Islington thoroughfare.

Source:Place North West

The two blocks will be joined at ground floor level by a glazed block with landscaped areas at the entrance on Islington and Norton Street and within a courtyard area between the blocks.

Tom Anwyl, director of Anwyl Construction, said: “Liverpool is a thriving and exciting city and we’re proud to be playing a part in its transformation.

“The Anwyl Group has a solid reputation for high quality and thoughtful building in North Wales and we have ambitious plans for expansion in the North West.

“We believe that to gain unanimous approval for such a significant development in a key location in the city is the perfect way to launch Anwyl across the border.

“There were no objections and it was commended by Peter Jones of Liverpool Planning and suggested that the scheme was in the right location for the local universities.”

The council gave the development unanimous approval and said it would contribute towards the mix of residential accommodation and support the regeneration of the Islington area.

The report of the Interim head of Planning said: “The development will respond well to the surrounding buildings and will be of sufficiently high quality to ensure it contributes positively to the surrounding area whilst respecting the distinctive nature of the locality.”

The disused Waterloo rail tunnel runs underneath the Norton Street site and Anwyl is consulting with Network Rail about the development while the tunnel’s grade two-listed ventilation tower will be preserved as part of the scheme.

Anwyl also has plans for a second development in the city centre, a 21-floor tower in Pall Mall housing 342 units.

A planning application is set to be lodged by Anwyl Construction in the next month. There will be a mix of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

Tom Anwyl added: “We are committed to ensuring that the areas in which we work benefit from the investment in them by ensuring that wherever possible we use local sub-contractors and source our materials through local supply chains and this is a policy we will continue in Liverpool.”

The Anwyl group is a family run company founded in Rhyl in 1930 and which this year moved into a new £2.5m headquarters in Ewloe, in Flintshire.

To give a sense of the location, Paddington Village is located directly SE of the new Royal Liverpool Hospital and Health Campus on the eastern most extremity of the city centre.

Landmark 30-story waterfront tower planned by YHG

Your Housing Group has announced plans to build a 30-storey apartment building on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront.

The Group is planning the 276 apartment development on the Liverpool Waters site as part of a major investment into the build to rent market.

The proposed £48m development at Princes Dock, Liverpool Waters would be YHG’s third build to rent development, although the first in Liverpool, and would be marketed under the organisation’s successful PRS brand, Hive.

Your Housing Group expects to submit a planning application for the development in early 2017 and begin work later in the year, subject to consent. https://www.yourhousinggroup.co.uk/y...lanned-by-yhg/

A lot more of this is needed for the area of the city in question.

Tower crane to go up around April, completion programmed for July 2019.

Phase 2 of the work will then start, creating the underground parking area within the current footprint of the hospital, which will by then be demolished.

On the waterfront to the very left, where the legs of man are, that's to be the IOM Ferry Terminal and to the right of the Alexandra Tower is the Cruise Liner extension, we should have images available for them soon? Just behind them, there are two buildings in various stages of planning said to be a hotel and I'm not sure what the other is. Nearest the Liver Building is New World Square and the taller buildings on the industrial estate at the back are way down the line, ones for the future. It's all looking promising down there now and they'll all make a big impact on the skyline.

The heritage impact assessment states the proposal has a neutral/slight beneficial impact on a number of Liverpool City Council agreed views, shown below.

This should also hopefully help them out, similarly to Elliot:

"They are particularly committed to working with charities, startups, independent and pop-up businesses to animate ground floor spaces and help regenerate local neighbourhoods. Eloquent Group are setting new standards for design, quality and creativity and delivering some of the most innovative development projects in the UK."
