Fowler-backed Vauxhall flats move forward
The third iteration of a project backed by former footballer Robbie Fowler has been revealed for a site on the junction of St Anne Street and Fox Street, at the former Litecraft warehouse plot in Vauxhall.
Two versions of the scheme have already come forward in recent years. Planning permission was granted in 2016 for 313 apartments, and this consent was then tweaked in 2018 to allow for 325 apartments.
This scheme was designed by Day Architectural, on behalf of Pointfield Developments. Pointfield, led by director David Lee, went into administration in 2019.
The latest application, totalling 300 apartments, is from architect Studio RBA, and is based on the Day designs with some amends. The applicant is SEP Construction Services, advised by The Planning Studio.
Proposals are for three blocks, of between five and eight storeys, made up of studios, one and two bedroom apartments, targeted at young professionals and families.
In February, former Liverpool footballer Robbie Fowler announced a partnership with Elatus Developments to bring forward the scheme, at the time totalling 325 flats, dubbed St Anne’s Gardens.
The statement at the time said 50 apartments had already been sold off plan, and the project was due to complete in autumn 2021. The flats which have already been sold are not being altered in this latest planning application.
Elatus is still leading on the development. According to Companies House, Elatus’ sole director is Robert Taylor.
The flats are being marketed to investors at starting prices of £81,000 with up to 10% net yields.
