Going to be an interesting night looking though this, thanks for finding Sefton! 53m is a nice height for the site.

Looks nice, but it would be nice to see more height at five ways. It's a shame that Park Regis is still there.

Nice find Sefton. Pleasant surprise on a Saturday night too.

I walked past this site a few weeks ago and thought it would be ages before we heard of any proposals for it. Glad to be wrong.

Happy to see ground floor units as part of the scheme but would have liked it a bit taller on Broad St.




Edit : Just for future reference, there's 878 sq m of commercial space, 117 x 1 beds, 105 x 2 beds, 6 x 3 beds, 152 car parking spaces and 228 cycling spaces.

Quite dull. But more height would've been good at this entrance point.

I like it, would have linked it to be maybe 70m, that would made a very nice cluster in this area, but overall very nice.

Not mad about it, would be better suited in the Gay Village area, or the Gun Quarter.

Broad Street is becoming very interesting though.

Miles better than that car park. I'm OK with this.

Edit: Seven ground floor retail units as well. Lovely stuff.

After looking through the application, I'm really happy with this, the fact there is (well hidden) multi storey parking for the apartments, and I assume the hotel too is great. The fact that they have included retail units on the Street Martin Street next to the Cinema, would be fantastic to have some restaurants here, I don't think they needed to go any taller, most buildings are around the same height for Five Ways and it's a much better filler than say a 2 storey supermarket *cough*. If I get the time, or someone else, I'll get the detailing of the cladding posted, there will be black brick which you can't see in the above renders and it looks ace! My only complaint is the Tenant St elevation, it's dead but that's due to the existing sub station, just like Holiday Inn on Holiday Still, not much can be done but apart from that it's a huge thumbs up from me. 70m+ here would seem a bit awkward being next to the lower cinema I think.

And maybe developments like this will help to fill some of them retail units under Park Regis Hotel.

Similar size to University Locks at Eastside then? Nice to see more investment at this end of five ways.
