Liverpool-based developer Elliot Group aims to build a 14-storey residential block comprising 232 apartments on Bridgewater Street, overlooking Queen’s Dock.
The 173,000 sq ft project, named Duke’s Village, has been designed by architect Falconer Chester Hall and would feature 12,000 sq ft of commercial space across eight ground floor units.
Located on the edge of Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle neighbourhood, the site was previously occupied by electrical wholesaler Eyre & Elliston.
Elliot Group bought the half-acre site last year and Eyre & Elliston has since relocated to King Edward Industrial Estate.
Elliot Group founder Elliot Lawless said: “Our aim is to develop a high-end scheme that maximises the site’s waterfront views. The area is crying out for more commercial space, too, so we hope to be able to plug some of that gap.”
The private rented sector development is part of the company’s “continuing migration from the fractional sales model”, Lawless added.
Under the plans, four parking spaces and 232 cycle bays are proposed.
The professional team on the project includes engineer Clancy, planning consultant Zerum, DTPC advising on transport, acoustic consultant AEC and landscape architect Layer.studio.
Lawless anticipates a start on site next spring subject to planning approval.
