Latest Liverpool PRS set for approval

The latest residential scheme in Liverpool targeted at the private rented sector is expected to get the green light at the city council’s next planning committee, allowing for the construction of 277 flats on Great Homer Street.

Soller Two, a special purpose vehicle of a London-based company run by developer and investor Nick Treadaway, is proposing the apartments across three buildings of nine storeys each.

The 1.1-acre site on Great Homer Street is currently occupied by a warehouse used by a car repair company.

The architect for the project is Falconer Chester Hall. The flats would be made up of 178 one-bedroom and 99 two-bedroom units, alongside roof terraces, a garden room and communal facilities. There are also 121 parking spaces planned alongside.

Zerum is advising on the application.

Liverpool City Council’s planning committee is due to meet on Tuesday 21 February, and officers have recommended the project be approved.

This part of town is really attracting a lot of investment at present.

I have no doubt it is – very handy for the city centre. Sadly so much more could have been done with Greatie Market – this could have been very sympathetic – but nope its not.

Hmm. This part of town is being trashed by graffiti at the moment. Not sure I’d want to risk my property being nicked or vandalised. It’s a shame the council can’t be bothered to clean up the mess – or perhaps they’re just incompetent.

By Moomo

Yeah maybe ‘the council’ (who exactly) can’t be bothered, or incompetent.

Or maybe they haven’t got enough money and they’d rather prioritise things like – I don’t know, social care – than scrubbing up an already scruffy bit of town where nobody currently goes.
