242-bed PBSA green lit in Liverpool

McLaren Property have been granted a resolution to approve planning permission from Liverpool City Council for a purpose-built, 242-bed student accommodation scheme on Myrtle Street, neighbouring the University of Liverpool campus. 

The design was refined through lengthy discussions with the city council’s planning, urban design and conservation officers and has resulted in a high-quality building sympathetic to a prominent location marking the gateway between the city centre, the university and the Canning Street Conservation Area. 

Tom Gilman, McLaren Property’s regional managing director, said: “We’ve worked closely with Liverpool City Council to deliver a scheme that is sensitively designed and one which respects neighbouring heritage. We are excited to get started and regenerate this site and bring forward a vibrant student hub on the edge of Liverpool’s knowledge district.”

Almost a third of the purpose-built student accommodation scheme will be studios and the rest are arranged in 4, 5 and 6-bedroom clusters around common rooms. Alongside essential shared facilities like a laundry, residents may also have access to bookable guest rooms and a variety of inviting amenity spaces, such as a social lounge, study hub and cinema room. 

The development’s central site has good transport links and residents will also have the use of storage space for 81 bicycles.
