Liverpool construction projects get green light

Liverpool construction projects get green light

A pair of construction projects in Liverpool's Baltic Triangle have received planning permission, which will lead to nearly 200 new apartments and a hotel being provided in the tech hub.
 
The Baltic Triangle encompasses the southern part of the city centre and docks and its development as a fashionable area for new businesses is set for a significant boost after local firm Elliot Group and Manchester-based developers Zerum both gained planning permission for their upcoming projects. 
 
Elliot Group can now press ahead with the construction of a £70 million hotel overlooking Queen's Dock that will feature 306 rooms, 50 large apartments and a plethora of luxury facilities, including a gym, restaurant and basement conference space. Permission had already been in place for a hotel on the site, but the original plans were different and this necessitated a new application. 
 
The project will be delivered in conjunction with local hotelier Paul Adams and will give the Baltic Triangle a new element, the founder of Elliot Group Elliot Lawless said.
 
He remarked: "Baltic has been crying out for the sort of hotel that fits the neighbourhood’s funky vibe.
 
"I'm delighted with this news and to be working once again with Paul Adams and his team."
 
The Zerum project will see 145 apartments being built on a site that is currently under-used, with a warehouse and roofing yard along with a small office. These will all be demolished ahead of the construction of the new block, which will contain 72 one-bedroom apartments and 73 with two bedrooms. 
 
Zerum's associate director Nikki Sills said: "The new apartment block will not only provide new homes for people, but it will also include a commercial unit on the ground floor, which will provide a modern outlet for a commercial tenant."
 
The developments in the southern docklands are not the only ones going on in the city. The northern docks are the site of the planned Liverpool Waters mixed-use development and a new stadium for Everton football Club.
