Liverpool greenlights 200-home Audley House conversion

Work can begin on the transformation of the former TJ Hughes store on London Road into residential accommodation, following approval at the City Council’s planning committee meeting this morning.

Planning consultant Zerum submitted the plans on behalf of Anil Juneja, owner of the department store, to provide 199 homes in Liverpool city centre.

Keith Davidson Partnership designed the project, which will deliver 129 one-bed and 70 two-bedroom apartments, ranging in size from 280 sq ft to 807 sq ft.

Currently three- to five- storeys, Audley House will receive a one- to two- storey extension while still retaining its London Road façade.

Residents will be able to enjoy a 3,100 sq ft gym and 2,600 sq ft café on the ground floor of the complex.

Although no car parking will be available on site, a 3,800 sq ft cycle store will provide 200 cycle spaces.

The scheme is the second part of a plan that aims to deliver more than 500 homes within the two former TJ Hughes stores on London Road. The other TJ Hughes store, Hughes House was demolished in 2022 to be transformed into 245 flats.

Liverpool City Council’s reference number for the application is 21F/3562.

Great outcome this, the developer has come up with a good scheme and this will add further life and footfall to this local area, nearby shops and bars will benefit from the trade generated and probably more will open. Still some way to go for London Road and hopefully the stalled schemes on Islington can be picked up, and we can see more developments of this height and scale that are worthy of a large city neighbourhood.

Wow….Can’t believe this has consent. In what way does this rude extension respect the Listed Building?!

By Anon

It`s not a listed building nor in a conservation area, it`s features are largely being preserved. We have many listed buildings where nothing is happening or are deteriorating, and if we procrastinate too long in order to get the perfect outcome they will fall down eg The Welsh Church, the Wellington Rooms, Bonded Tea warehouse.

I feel sorry for anyone who has to live in a 280 sq ft space, that’s tiny.
