Working in joint venture with landowner Network Rail, the Sourced Development Group wants to build 507 apartments in a quartet of residential blocks on four acres of vacant land between the Ten Streets regeneration area and Eldonian Village in Liverpool.
They along with Network Rail have submitted a planning application to Liverpool City Council for the redevelopment of the four sites – three adjoining plots on Love Lane and one further south on Pall Mall.
A planning statement prepared by WSP states that discussions with Liverpool City Council’s planning team have been positive and that the authority is “supportive of the development proposals”.
“The LPA also confirm their support to the massing, scale and general approach to design,” the statement said.
The quartet of residential blocks will reach between nine and 11 storeys and comprise 147 one-bedroom apartments, 330 with two bedrooms, and 30 with three beds.
Redundant railway arches and subterranean tunnels located on two of the plots would be repurposed into more than 10,000 sq ft of commercial space under the proposals. A 200-metre linear park also forms part of the joint venture’s vision for the site.
The Sourced Development Group/Network Rail JV is waiting to hear back from the Sovini Group and Regenda Homes, which have been approached over delivering the scheme’s affordable element.
