Consent sought for Liverpool apartments

Self storage company Urban Space wants to deliver 178 homes on the edge of the Baltic Triangle.

Urban Space owns the Upper Stanhope Street site, and is requesting outline consent to redevelop it into a residential scheme.

Permission is being sought for a three-to-five-storey block comprising 58 one-bedroom apartments, 91 with two bedrooms and a further 29 with three. 

Planning and design consultancy Heyes + Company is advising Urban Space on the proposals. 

The scheme would feature a variety of apartment sizes that are “generally more generous than provided in typical city centre developments,” according to Heyes + Company. 

The largest property would be 945 sq ft and the smallest 345 sq ft. 

Urban Space’s scheme is the latest in the area to come forward. On nearby Brassey Street, Caro Developments is pushing ahead with plans for 174 apartments. 

Elsewhere, the former Norton Scrap Metal site on Chaloner Street is up for sale. The plot has consent for a 650-home development under plans lodged by Chaloner Street Developments. The company counts former Liverpool footballer Sean Highdale among its directors. 

CBRE is marketing the site for sale.

Fingers crossed that UrbanSpace want to build this instead of pushing up the land value, meanwhile the ex Norton Scrap site remains for sale and it should be noted that the owners , Chaloner Street Developments, have never built anything.
On the plus side re Brassey Street,Caro have a good track record and this one should proceed, and next to this Legacie are forging ahead with One Baltic Square.

Heard the Norton site heavily contaminated and that was the main reason nobody’s buying into it..
