Construction of Peel L&P and Your Housing Group’s 278-apartment Liverpool waterfront scheme can now begin, more than five months after the project was approved.
Documents published this week on Liverpool City Council’s planning portal state that a legal agreement has been signed between the developers and the authority, clearing the way for contractor Vermont to start on site.
Darran Lawless, Peel L&P’s outgoing director of development for Liverpool Waters, said: “This is another important milestone on the way to delivering this development, and we hope to confirm a start onsite date in the near future.”
Part of Peel’s wider £5bn Liverpool Waters regeneration scheme, the 31-storey Patagonia Place project is designed by Falconer Chester Hall.
Affordable housing provider Your Housing Group will own and operate the tower under an arrangement with Peel L&P.
Updated plans for the Princes Dock scheme were submitted last May after Your Housing Group won consent for a residential tower on the same site in 2017.
The earlier iteration of the scheme was designed by Brock Carmichael but never progressed.
Patagonia Place forms part of a trio of towers at Peel L&P’s wider Liverpool Waters development.
Vermont completed construction of the first tower – the Hodder & Partners-designed Plaza 1821 – last summer, while the largest tower – Moda’s 35-storey The Lexington – is being built by BCEGI and topped out last August.
