Fresh version of Liverpool student project emerges 

Proposals for a 262-bedroom development are the latest to come forward on a site off Oldham Place that has been the subject of numerous past applications. 

Designed by architecture practice F2A, the most recent plans for the Liverpool site feature a 10-storey student block, providing a mixture of cluster and studio flats.

Until 2005, the site was used as a car park. Since then, various proposals have come forward for its redevelopment but none have materialised. 

In 2008, Liverpool City Council granted consent for a 51-apartment project before the proposal was superseded by a six-storey student scheme four years later. 

A refreshed iteration of the student accommodation development was given the go-ahead in 2016 before Kenworth Investments won approval for a 266-bedroom project in 2017. 

In 2020, the site was acquired by 11171749 Limited, the investor behind the current proposals, according to Land Registry records. 

The plot is located next to the site of Renshaw Hall, which is currently being redeveloped into a hotel and student scheme. 

However, the developer behind that project, NR Capricornus, is in administration.

Nearby Renshaw Street should benefit from this increased residential as it is already becoming a Chinatown mk3 in Liverpool with various businesses including street food market, supermarket and cafes.
Hopefully the planned Moxy hotel will appear somewhere soon.
