Details out on £40m Wolstenholme Square

Liverpool City Council’s planning committee is set to rule on the plans in early September.

Wolstenholme Square Liverpool Daytime looking east down the passage V2Designed by Falconer Chester Hall, the images show how the project will replace a series of low-rise 1950s warehouses with five different blocks rising up to 10 storeys.

The scheme incorporates a mixture of uses with residential, commercial, leisure and retail spaces all contained within the blocks that wrap around two sides of the square and include a new passageway through to Seel Street.

The plans would see the creation of more than 447 studio and one-bed apartments.

Elliot Lawless of Elliot Group said that rising demand for city centre living was driving up rents, enabling developers to invest in the quality of their product.

He said: “As Liverpool grows more prosperous residents want to express that in the quality of their homes. Even those seeking studio apartments demand the highest levels of design, fit-out and gadgetry and this development will take the market to the next level.”

Elliot Group recently commenced ground investigation works on the £130m Heap’s Mill scheme and site clearance on its £25m Queensland Place student housing project, both in Liverpool.

I would rather live in the old warehouses! Can’t they convert them?

no mention of an underground cream. That will never happen will it.

There are no old warehouses on the site. There was an historic factory on the site that was destroyed during World War II. The buildings that will go are post-war sheds. I believe the clubs are to go under the development with all the modern sound proofing.
