Legacie redesigns Rose Place for students
The developer has submitted plans for Azure, a part-six and eight-storey student block with 280 bedrooms and 24,000 sq ft of retail at Rose Place in Liverpool.

The site currently houses industrial units, which would be vacated and demolished. The student accommodation would be split between 97 one-bed studio flats, and 26 cluster flats containing an average of seven bedrooms.
Falconer Chester Hall is the architect and Zerum is the planner.
Legacie gained consent in May 2018 for an eight-storey private residential block, which would have contained 180 bedrooms in 127 apartments and commercial uses at ground floor.
However, according to the developer, plans were changed in response “to the buoyant student residential sector in Liverpool alongside the rapidly changing context of the area. This will create a provision of accommodation for the area for its university students from the three nearby campuses: University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University and Hope University.”
Legacie recently announced a £20m deal with Maslow Capital to fund its £90m Parliament Square residential and retail scheme in the Baltic Triangle, currently on site.
