Liverpool City Council has signed-off on two residential and student accommodation schemes totalling around 500-bedrooms from developer Elliot Lawless in the city centre.
In the Baltic Triangle, Lawless’ company Elliot Group will deliver the redevelopment of a warehouse site between Norfolk Street, Watkinson Street and Simpson Street. The nine-storey building designed by Falconer Chester Hall will be made up of 100 studio apartments for city centre workers.
The planning application was submitted by Roman Summer Developments.
Meanwhile, student accommodation proposals by Elliot Group for a vacant plot by Chatham Place known as Queensland Place have also been approved. Also designed by Falconer Chester Hall, the three-winged building ranges from between three and six storeys, totalling 399 student rooms made up of 73 cluster units and 25 studio apartments.
The intention is to have the accommodation ready for the September 2016 intake.
The 1.2-acre parcel of land is close to the Liverpool University and Liverpool John Moores University campuses, and was the location of the St Anne’s Roman Catholic Secondary Modern School before it was demolished in 1999. The plot has remained vacant.
