FCH reworks Caro apartment scheme

Liverpool City Council has given its approval to an increase in the number of flats at a previously consented development in the north of the city.

The development on land between Clegg Street and Great Homer Street will include a revised mix of studio, one and two-bedroom apartments in an L-shaped block of between five and eight storeys. The exterior, scale and massing of the scheme will remain as approved.

Architects Falconer Chester Hall submitted the revised application on behalf of Caro Developments, the business that was also behind the adjacent City Point project.

Martin Haymes, associate director at FCH, said: “Without exceeding the previously approved height and massing, we have reconfigured the interior layout to provide a mix of apartments which reflect the current marketplace demand more accurately. The emphasis remains on quality shared areas and well lit interiors.”

Under the newly approved proposals the development, which sits to the south of Everton Park, will feature 76 one-bedroom apartments, 43 studios and eight two-bedroom units. Overall the number of apartments increases from the previously consented 93 to 127.

Haymes added: “The development represents a significant investment in a gateway site and will deliver a variety of high-quality, well designed residential units.”

Alongside Falconer Chester Hall, the professional team on the project includes Zerum as planner, Layer as landscape architect, Vectos as transport planner, and Clancy as structural engineer.
