The Liverpool-based developer has lodged updated plans for the 1.7-acre site on Liverpool’s Brassey Street it bought out of receivership for £1.5m last year, increasing the number of apartments.
In 2018, Eloquent Global won planning consent for a 174-apartment scheme on the site, drawn up by Studio RBA.
Last year, the site’s new owner Caro Developments announced its intention to draw up fresh designs, appointing Falconer Chester Hall as architect.
Now, the developer has submitted a planning application for a 190-apartment development, featuring a mix of one- and two-bedroom flats across two 10-storey blocks.
Located on the southern edge of the Baltic Triangle close to the abandoned St James station, the site poses challenges for the developer due to its proximity to the railway line.
Zerum is the planning consultant for the £25m project and Turley is advising Caro on heritage.
Neil Carlyle, managing director of Caro, said: “I’m pleased we’ve passed this important milestone. The market remains in good shape for well-located, well-designed developments such as this.
“The Baltic area continues to thrive and this site benefits from its proximity to Baltic Market and the wider Brewery Village development, both of which continue to grow and evolve. Liverpool has emerged strongly from the pandemic and it’s important that the city capitalises on continued market confidence.”
Elsewhere in the city, Caro is delivering its 127-apartment Poet’s Place residential development on Great Homer Street. Main contractor Newry Construction is nearing completion of the project.
