Iliad has submitted a planning application for two residential blocks within the Ropewalks area of Liverpool, next to a student accommodation scheme completed by the developer in 2013.
Designed by Tim Groom Architects, the St Michael’s II project would include 120 apartments targeted at families, on a site at Grenville Street and Upper Pitt Street.
The application applies for permission to demolish a community centre currently on the plot, the development of two buildings staggered in height to up to seven storeys, and the renovation of a disused train tunnel vent shaft to turn it into a light feature.
St Michael’s II also includes a 2,500 sq ft commercial unit on the ground floor.
The first phase of St Michael’s was a 260-bedroom student accommodation block which opened in 2013.
