Forrest begins construction at Liverpool Waters

The £21m Plaza 1821 has become the first of three consented residential buildings at Princes Dock to start on site, developed by Peel Land & Property and Regenda Group.

Peel and Regenda were granted planning permission for the Hodder-designed block in August. The 15-storey building totals 105 one- and two-bedroom apartments, alongside ground floor retail and amenity space.

At around 85,000 sq ft, the apartment block will be built as Peel’s first PRS project, and then bought by Regenda and managed by its PRS subsidiary, Redwing Living.

On the neighbouring plots at Princes Dock, housing association Your Housing Group has consent for a 30-storey tower totalling 276 apartments, designed by Brock Carmichael. In 2016, Moda Living secured permission for a 34-storey PRS tower, made up of 304 flats designed by Falconer Chester Hall.

Contractors have been rumoured for both projects but there have been no announcements of a start date.

Really have become tired of all these promises of bringing huge investment into Liverpool , through providing top quality ‘living space’s . Architectural standards seem to have dropped ; it would appear as I look at Liverpool’s skyline ;build up build tall ; all well and good for the council and our heritage , what about conservation, , besides the three graces (Liver Building ) , have with stood the hands of time , without needing some extra so-called help from a miserable bunch of ‘stuck in the mud’ councillors….
