Completion for Liverpool tower

Vermont Construction has completed work on X1 The Tower, a 24-storey building that brings to a conclusion development at the X1 The Quarter residential scheme.

Knight Knox and X1, partners in the scheme, said that the project is valued at £26.7m. The Falconer Chester Hall-designed tower represents the fifth and final phase of work at The Quarter, with the previous four completed and fully occupied.

The development sits at the junction of Sefton Street and Parliament Street at the southern end of the city centre.

The development includes 196 apartments, ranging from studios to three beds, with a communal lounge and landscaped external areas.

Andy Phillips, commercial director at Knight Knox, said: “X1 The Quarter is one of our most impressive developments and we are proud to see it finished with the completion of X1 The Tower.

“Liverpool is one of the fastest-growing cities in the UK and an increasing population needs high quality apartments. We have a strong track record in the city and are delighted to be playing a part in Liverpool’s continuing resurgence.”

Melissa Green, operations director at X1, said: “The completion of X1 The Quarter is a significant milestone for X1. Each of the previous four phases has been well received and we anticipate that X1 The Tower will get an equally positive reception.”

X1 The Tower is the 22nd completed development from Knight Knox and X1, and their 11th to be completed in Liverpool.

This area could soon see quite a cluster of talls if the rumours are true?

By Just saying

More towers this end please.

Liverpudlians are happy with this are they? Really?

Just looking out at it from 92* Coffee in the Baltic. It looks great in the afternoon sun. It’s at the bottom of Parliament Street by the way, and makes a great landmark at this point on the city skyline. Towers in Liverpool need to be placed carefully. This one is in a great spot! You could conceivably get more in places on Sefton Street or Caryl Street. Caryl Streets in particular could complement Pall Mall at the North End.

Roscoe – noted and amended, thanks. Neil.

@PDM – You are the most boring troll on here…

Far too much drab grey cladding which unfortunately won’t reflect the light very well. The percentage of glass to cladding should be higher to make a tower shine.

I agree the cladding is too grey. Planners take note! The massing however is very good for this spot and the tower gets away with the cladding because it’s in a light and airy spot that gets more sunshine than average.

They are only concerned about one side of the river.

I saw it today (Feb 14) and wondered what it would look like when it’s finished.
The top made me think that.
Surprised to learn that it IS finished.
