Elliot on site at Norfolk House

Work has begun on the development of 156 apartments to rent on a derelict site within Liverpool’s emerging Baltic neighbourhood.

The £15m project on Norfolk Street is being constructed by developer Elliot Group’s in-house contractors and is set for completion in September 2016.

There will be 6,000 sq ft of offices on the ground floor, together with a laundry, gym and lounge space for residents.

The scheme, designed by architect Falconer Chester Hall, is the latest to have started on site in the former dockland area, which is book-ended by Grosvenor’s Liverpool ONE development to the north and the proposed Brewery Village to the south.

Elliot Lawless, owner of Elliot Group, said: “Our market wants an element of communality so features such as gyms and shared social space are very popular.

“Baltic is an exciting neighbourhood with craft bakeries, brew-pubs, galleries, bars and cafes all emerging to support a growing workforce and residential population.  It offers tremendous convenience whilst still having its own distinct identity within the city centre.”
