Planning permission has been granted to the first project within the Knowledge Quarter’s £1bn Paddington Village planned for the former Archbishop Blanch school site.
The 13-storey building will be used as a live-learn facility by Liverpool International College, operated through a partnership between Kaplan international and the University of Liverpool.
The development on Grove Street will include 45,000 sq ft of teaching and learning space, and 260 bedrooms.
The architect is CPMG.
The new building will house a café, knowledge hub, study booths, and social area with game and study zones with expanded opening hours to suit students’ varied schedules.
