Liverpool Chinatown expansion continues
Elliot Group has submitted plans for a six-storey apartment block on Upper Pitt Street between Liverpool’s Chinatown and Baltic neighbourhoods.
The scheme, to be known as Baltic Place, has been designed by architect Falconer Chester Hall and will provide 52 one-bedroom apartments for rent to young professionals, with a gym, courtyard and Chinese garden on site.
If the planning application is successful, work would start in the spring, with completion expected in September 2016. The contractor is Liverpool-based Newry Construction.
Meanwhile, Elliot Group this week began demolition of a disused warehouse on Norfolk Street to facilitate the second phase of a residential scheme on the site. The nine-story apartment block will provide 100 apartments for rent to young professionals and has a value of £10m. Golding Estates has been appointed lettings agent.
Elliot Lawless, founder of Elliot Group, said: “Upper Pitt Street was the heart of Chinatown from the middle of the nineteeth century until it moved towards Nelson Street. It’s now on Chinatown’s southern boundary and our designs for a Chinese garden have been carefully though -through to pay proper respect to the area’s heritage.”
