City planners approve two new residential developments in North and South Liverpool

Council planners have given the go-ahead to two residential developments – one in North Liverpool and one in the South.

Both schemes – in Great Homer Street and Aigburth Road – have been designed by local architects Falconer Chester Hall (FCH).

The Great Homer Street project, close to the Project Jennifer regeneration area, comprises 277 apartments in two blocks and is being built by developer Soller Group.

The apartments will feature communal roof terraces offering “outstanding views” of the city centre and across the river to Wirral and beyond.

They will be a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments contained in blocks of eight and nine storeys.

Investor confidence

FCH director Alastair Shepherd said: “When completed this will complement the extensive regeneration currently ongoing along Great Homer Street by making use of what is currently a largely brownfield site.

“It is also another show of investor confidence in the northern edge of the city and adds to the balance of residential accommodation in the area, which includes recently approved student schemes and more traditional housing stock.”

More than 120 car parking spaces for the scheme will be contained in two basement levels and there will also be extensive provision for cycle storage.

Conservation area

The Aigburth Road scheme, being brought forward by developer Vinco Group, will see 60 new apartments created within the Lark Lane Conservation Area.

It will see the retention and conversion of an existing villa, and the construction of a new apartment building on the site of a former coach house and stables.

Developer Vinco Group will create 60 new apartments in Aigburth Road, South Liverpool

The development site has two frontages onto Alexandra Drive and Aigburth Road.

Fifteen two and three-bedroom apartments will be created inside the conversion and extension of 34 Alexandra Drive, while a further 42 apartments will be contained within the new building following the demolition of the coach house and stables at 23 Aigburth Road.

‘Sympathetic conversion’

“This is an opportunity to enhance the conservation area with a sympathetic conversion to restore and prolong the life of the existing residential property as well as adding a number of high quality apartments on a disused site,” said FCH managing director Adam Hall.

“It will also bring additional benefits to the area in terms of extra residents to support existing businesses, and add a building of architectural merit along the Aigburth Road frontage.”

First project go-ahead at £1bn Liverpool Paddington Village

Proposals to build a 13 storey building for Liverpool International College at the City’s Paddington Village site have got the planning green light.

Work on the building could start as early as May, kick-starting the £1bn development site, which forms part of Liverpool’s new Knowledge Quarter.

The live-learn facility, which is out to tender, will be operated through a partnership between Kaplan international and the University of Liverpool.

Bowmer & Kirkland and Morgan Sindall are understood to be among the firms biding for the project, which will consist of 45,000 sq ft teaching and learning space and 260 bedrooms.

Paddington Village would see a cluster of towers and buildings erected on a site behind the Royal Liverpool Hospital, including the old Archbishop Blanch School land.

Earlier this month Liverpool City Council signed up Morgan Sindall to deliver two projects on the central plot.

The first phase of work, worth around £12m, and due to start on site in summer 2017, will involve the installation of infrastructure and formation of development plots to make them market-ready.

The second phase will see Morgan Sindall design and build a new £35m Northern Centre of Excellence for the Royal College of Physicians.

Plans in for new Lime Street music venue



Plans are in to convert the former ABC cinema on Lime Street into a new live music venue.

Neptune Developments wants to bring the vacant Art Deco landmark back into use creating a venue of “international standing” to hold crowds of up-to 1,500 with a TV studio, bar and a restaurant.

The proposals tie in with the developer’s wider scheme to regenerate Lime Street with the creation of new retail space and leisure provision, student accommodation and a new Premier Inn hotel.

Last December it was revealed that two unnamed companies were in the running to operate the new venue.

Hope they all see the light of day and give Liverpool some long overdue additions to its fantastic waterfront and give it a befitting skyline!

Absolutely. The waterfront could end up being quite spectacular in 5-10 years.

I agree, I lived in Liverpool many years ago and always thought the already awesome water front would look great with some skyscrapers, nice to see that seems to be happening

If all the development proposals in Liverpool go forward, this is what the skyline will look like:

^Looks a bit messy. Why not use more traditional materials and try to properly connect the new towers to the existing skyline?

You know I feel a little depressed by the images. Yes it will be nice and smart but it's making the city centre feel more and more sparse, quiet and windswept. There is very little hint of street level activity and the bustle that normal street and road layouts create seems drowned out for a more 'town' like atmosphere.

I just hope people are encouraged to use these new spaces, including the strand which seems to have been repaved several times over the last few years and is yet again being re-done for yet more relatively empty space and a headache I would imagine for traffic.

Generally, public realm improvements are welcome but we seem to be spending money in the same places again and again despite them only recently receiving similar treatment when, for examples Moorfields Underground Station could have had the money more effectively spent on redeveloping the station entrance which is odd at best.

Or, better still perhaps some money could have been spent preparing some of the empty plots in the area for development into offices etc?

I don't know...Lime St, ok I get the need to create a piazza but the rest seems like going over old ground when many of the other key thoroughfares in the city are a little tired.

I think they look great, and from my experience when this has happened in other cities around the world, it will be successful.

That said, really sad that the horrible facade of St Johns will remain. Arriving at Lime Street is one of the most impressive rail arrivals of any city in the world. But that one long St Johns facade is so horribly bad, it not only ruins it, but destroys it. No matter how beautiful all the rest is (and the rest of the view is beautiful) that facade is so mind blowingly ugly that nothing else matters.

Once the old 1960's Royal hospital and the former copperas hill sorting office have been demolished (within the next two years max) we will only really have one real eyesore left to deal with in central Liverpool and that is St Johns Centre.

It's complete demolition, along with Clayton Square and Central Station shopping centres would allow for this entire area to be unlocked and present an opportunity for some striking, statement making architecture and public spaces not to mention provide a real gateway both at Lime st and central stations either side of this area.

Big ideas and bold vision is needed here for what would be the final crucial piece of the central Liverpool jigsaw.

Kings Dock regeneration takes key step forward



Proposals to kick-start the next stage of regeneration at Liverpool's Kings Dock, which could include the creation of new visitor attractions, have taken a key step forward.

A revised masterplan and planning brief for Kings Dock is set to go before Liverpool City Council's cabinet next Friday (17 March 2017).

This planning brief includes a new section on phasing, noting that Kings Dock will be developed out in a series of phases. It is expected that the first phase should focus on leisure and commercial uses, with residential development following later.

A range of potential uses have been put forward. For the leisure component, sports- and leisure-oriented venues are proposed such as an "ice rink, boutique bowling, surf centre, gym, spa or a combination of such uses". Cafes and restaurants, a food retail store of a modest size, commercial offices, residential uses, and multi-storey car parking have also been suggested.

The executive is also being asked to approve a provisional deal by Liverpool City Council to buy Kings Dock from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) for a total sum of around £4.1m. This would be funded either by a grant from the Regional Growth Fund or, if that bid is unsuccessful, through unsupported borrowing by the council.

The local authority also reported that in advance of the land acquisition, the council has been proactively engaged in detailed talks with a potential developer consortium and proposals are being appraised that could involve early development being taken forward within the next 12 months. The intention is that planning applications could be submitted in the spring of 2017, and the first phase could potentially be completed by the autumn of 2018.

Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson has recommended that the executive endorses the review and refresh of the Kings Dock masterplan and planning brief, and authorise the acquisition of the land required from the HCA.

Kings Dock is already home to a series of landmark developments including the Echo Arena, the BT Convention Centre, Exhibition Centre Liverpool and an integrated four-star 216-room Pullman hotel.

A development partner is being sought to create an ambitious "cultural garden suburb" with up to 2,500 new homes on a 90-acre site in Liverpool.

Liverpool City Council has unveiled the next stage of its vision for the former International Festival Gardens site in Otterspool at MIPIM, the world's largest property conference. The plot, which lies ten minutes' drive south of the city centre, is being promoted as Festival Park Liverpool.

The key regeneration feature of the site is the 28-acre northern development zone, which is being hailed as one of Liverpool's biggest investment opportunities over the next decade with the potential to create up to 2,500 new homes. The new homes are being marketed as of a wider mixed-use leisure and retail scheme alongside a new public open space on the present Southern Grasslands.

The council, which took control of the site last year, appointed architects to create a draft masterplan and held a public consultation in November/December 2016 to gauge feedback on transforming the northern zone of the site into a major visitor and cultural destination.

Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson said: "Festival Park Liverpool presents a unique development opportunity at what is a hugely important site to Liverpool and its residents.

"We need a partner, or partners, to help realise the vision and create a cultural garden suburb which will have no equal in the UK. The site is fully owned by the city council and we see the Festival Park as a key component of Liverpool's future prosperity, addressing the need for more quality homes and complementing what the city is achieving at the Knowledge Quarter and Liverpool Waters."

An updated masterplan is due to be submitted to the council's cabinet in the next six weeks. A recommendation will be submitted that Festival Park Liverpool is taken forward as a strategic priority and, subject to approval, the refined masterplan would serve as a development framework to inform any future planning applications.

There is a current outline planning consent for a 1,380-unit residential development on part of the site, which is valid until December 2022.

Liverpool City Council's regeneration department, which is overseeing £11bn of developments across the city, is handling investment inquiries for Festival Park Liverpool.
