Legacie reveals plans for £200m Liverpool resi
The developer is anticipating an imminent start on works to build 656 apartments on the stalled site off Freemasons Row.
Legacie Towers, a subsidiary of Liverpool-based Legacie Group, has revealed its plans for the regeneration of the vacant plot in the emerging Northern Quarter area of Liverpool.
Designed by architect Falconer Chester Hall, the scheme will deliver a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments across four residential buildings and will be constructed by Legacie Contracts.
Named ‘The Gateway’, the project will feature two gyms, two residential lounges, and a cinema room, as well as a range of commercial amenities including a coffee shop and convenience store.
Residents will also have access to a garden spa, which will provide an infrared sauna, swimming pool, ice bath, and even an oxygen chamber.
Liverpool City Council approved Vinco Group’s plans to for a slightly larger scheme to deliver 664 apartments on the 1.6-acre plot in 2019. However, the company is currently being liquidated.
Legacie picked up the stalled site in April and has since discharged various conditions from the existing planning consent to kickstart the project.
John Morley, chief executive of Legacie Developments, said: “This will be an impressive and vibrant scheme which extends the reach of the city centre and builds a community comparable to what we are delivering at Parliament Square.
“This site has lay vacant for far too long, and I am pleased that we have stepped forward with a scheme that will be a catalyst for further regeneration, provide an economic boost, and deliver something the city can be proud of.”
International sales agent, RWinvest, has partnered with Legacie to promote the scheme.
Michael Gledhill, director at RWinvest, said: “The Gateway will be a stunning addition to Liverpool’s buoyant housing offer.
“With world-class facilities on-site, it will form a key part of the emerging Northern Quarter and help attract further investment as we continue to see huge demand for luxury living in the city.”
The Gateway has a gross development value of £200m and will help create more than 250 local construction jobs and 25 apprenticeships.
