Fresh plans in for 31-storey Liverpool Waters tower

Developer Peel L&P has submitted an application for a 278-apartment scheme at Princes Dock, with contractor Vermont lined up to start the delayed project in August subject to consent. 

The tower would be owned and operated by housing provider Your Housing Group, under an arrangement with Peel L&P. 

YHG on its own had won consent in 2017 for a similar scheme –  a 31-storey residential tower – at the site at Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters development, but the project stalled when the construction contract was retendered. 

Contractor ISG had been the frontrunner to deliver the tower after entering late-stage negotiations. A retendering process was then held, which saw Graham Construction and Vinci bid for the project, but no agreement was reached.

The revised scheme, called Patagonia Place, also includes a change in architect. The original scheme was designed by Brock Carmichael but Falconer Chester Hall has drawn up the new plans with Arup on board as planning consultant. 

Patagonia Place forms part of a trio of residential towers at Liverpool Waters. The first, the Hodder-designed Plaza 1821, is being developed by Peel L&P and Regenda, with Vermont on site.  

The largest tower is Moda’s 35-storey The Lexington, designed by FCH and being built by contractor BCEGI, which is due to complete this year.  

Darran Lawless, development director at Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters said: “This is another major milestone for Liverpool Waters and comes despite the challenging environment the world is facing as a result of Covid-19. 

“Due to the current lockdown, the application process has been a challenge but the response from Liverpool City Council has demonstrated an ability and commitment to continue to function and unlock investment opportunities in the city.” 

Once complete, Peel L&P’s £5bn Liverpool Waters development will include 9,000 residential homes, 3m sq ft of commercial space and 570,000 sq ft of hotel and conference facilities across a 60-acre site. 

The waterfront project will also be home to a new cruise liner terminal and hotel designed by Brock Carmichael.
