Warrington-based developer Vivere said it intends to start on site at the beginning of next year with the construction of 525 homes on Regent Road.
The £150m development on the site of the derelict Wellington Hotel, will consist of four blocks of 26, 16, 10 and eight storeys alongside 37 three-storey townhouses. The apartments will have up to three bedrooms.
The scheme was first unveiled earlier this year by Vivere, the development arm of Bilt Group.
Targeted at investment buyers, the buildings will include concierge facilities, residents’ gym and lounge, and will be set around a central piazza. There will be 150 parking spaces and 200 secure cycle spaces.
Indigo Planning is advising on the application, and the architect is Fletcher Rae.
Andrew Rae, Fletcher Rae’s joint managing director, said: “Ensuring the complex was both viable and thoughtfully integrated into its urban surroundings were big considerations in the planning application stage. Our aim is to establish a sustainable community development that responds to the scale of wider developments and city strategies, as well as reintroduces a community base back to the north side of Regent Road.”
