Buyers sought for pair of stalled Liverpool resi sites
Plots in Everton and the Baltic Triangle that could accommodate a combined 450 apartments are being sold out of receivership.
Kroll Advisory has been appointed as receiver over the special purpose vehicles attached to the stalled schemes. Kroll has appointed Mason Owen to find buyers for the sites.
St Anne’s Street site
The first, located off St Anne’s Street close to the Merseyside Police HQ, has previously been the subject of two approved planning applications for 313 and 325 flats.
St Annes Street Limited, an SPV that lists Robert Taylor and former Liverpool footballer Sean Highdale as directors, lodged plans designed by RBA Studio for a 300-apartment scheme in 2020.
The application, updated late last year, has not been determined by Liverpool City Council.
The developers behind the previously consented schemes were Citipads – another Taylor and Highdale venture – and Pointfield Developments.
Baltic Triangle plot
St James Liverpool Limited, the company connected to a small site in the Baltic Triangle with permission for 157 flats, lists Robert Taylor as its sole director.
Hillmore Developments won planning permission for the redevelopment of the 0.5-acre Greenland Street plot in 2016.
Hillmore was dissolved the following year and the site remains vacant.
The opportunity is located next to New Chinatown, another, more high-profile stalled Liverpool site.
Ascot Capital has emerged as the frontrunner to take the controversial 500-home scheme forward, while the city council is also understood to be reviewing its position.
