Pall Mall

Elliot progresses Pall Mall design overhaul

Elliot Group has revealed its plans for the Pall Mall site in Liverpool, purchased from collapsed developer North Point Global last year, ahead of submitting a planning application by September.

The plot consists of a 2.6-acre site with planning permission for a four to 18 storey mixed-use scheme. The development was part-built when Elliot Group bought it from the Landwood Group, acting for receiver FRP Advisory, with PP O’Connor appointed to demolish the concrete frame left when the project stalled.

The replacement scheme Elliot is proposing is larger than previously approved, and is made up of four residential buildings, built in pairs and stepping up in height from 16 to 24 storeys. Sitting next to the apartments would be a 28-storey tower, providing a mix of hotel and residential use, and facing Elliot’s three-tower Infinity project which is currently under construction on the other side of the road. A two-storey amenity block will also be built to include a pool, gym and spa.

Each pairing of residential blocks sits on a two storey podium which includes amenity space, offices and undercroft parking to serve the development.

Overall, the site could deliver more than 800 apartments and 256 hotel rooms.

According to Elliot Group, the company is in detailed discussions with two separate global hotel brands to take space in the scheme.

Elliot Lawless, the developer’s director, said: “The site is just a couple of minutes’ walk from the new cruise terminal and this has really piqued hoteliers’ interest.

“The hoteliers approached us which has given us confidence to progress that part of our plans in more detail. We’ve not yet decided whether to include any substantial office space in the overall development, but the fact is that Liverpool needs to be able to offer a pipeline to the market if it is to stand a fighting chance of securing any of the footloose requirements out there.”

Elliot is in advanced discussions about its proposals with Liverpool City Council and is on target to submit a detailed planning application by mid-September.

The architect for the new scheme is Falconer Chester Hall in Liverpool. Zerum is acting as planning consultant.

Looks very impressive, the view from the cruise ships sailing into the new terminal will be amazing! Exciting times ahead!

Excellent additions to the skyline, Elliot is on a roll lately.

The pitch seems to be (yet more) apartments and transit hotels…all ok in a rising market but the city will be one of the first to suffer in a downturn and one is coming…


This is ‘Infinitly’ better than the previous crap proposed for this site. Well done Elliott, genuinely impressed. Passing this site on the train daily will be great seeing this miserable and industrial part of the city transform into a truly modern new district. Glad that the ugly red warehouse is going too!!

That is great, but we really need more quality office space, if people are going to live in the city and fill the hotel rooms we need more business activity in the city.
This means more companies growing here and they need the office space to do that in.
Also the connectivity and range of international flights outside of Europe from the air port is shockingly bad compared to other places. We urgently need to address this

By Stuart wood

I agree with Stuart, please provide some more quality office space here to make ita truly great mixed development, but great work again.

Liverpool can weather any downturn as it’s very resilient now and much better placed than many other cities to do so. It’s on the right side of the country with its great port. Connection to all the new infrastructure will be a top national priority as we are strategically placed for new markets. Our economy doesn’t depend on ‘transfers’ from the South.
I’m a European, but Liverpool was built on trade with the world and we are an outward looking city with a major seaport, two international airports and we will be a the starting point for Crossrail for the North or HS3, Liverpool to Hull and Newcastle. And connected to London via HS2.

@Bixteth Boy, are you a certain councillor who opposes everything just to get votes?

By Just saying

Excellent resubmission….just what the city needs
Confidence will inspire further developments along this corridor….now…if only Liverpool could gain access to the media platform …this would complete its transformation….as long as this is channelled down the M62…we will always play second fiddle in the Northern Powerhouse orchestra !!!!

Liverpool has always played its own tune, it doesn’t need to look anywhere else. Cunard’s Queen Mary II is in today on its way to New York, our historic sister city, and, with all the other events, the Waterfront is alive with people from all over the world. It really is a magnificent city now: the most filmed in the UK. I think we are looked on as an exemplar for building sustainable city futures.

Very nice, this is how buildings should be grouped rather than scattered randomly like in other towns!
Happy days!
