Work has begun on the developer’s flagship £90m Parliament Square scheme on the edge of Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle.
The scheme will see the construction of 500 apartments across four blocks, and will include a public plaza surrounded by shops and restaurants, amounting to around 12,000 sq ft. A penthouse apartment at the top of the building has been listed on the market with Aspen Woolf for more than £1.5m. Prices for the one, two and three-bedroom apartments start at £94,000.
Consent was secured in September last year for the project, with Legacie reporting in November that with 40% of apartments sold to overseas buyers, it hoped to start on site in the first quarter of this year. The developer this week told Place that it had instead focused on delivery at Ropemaker Place and Reliance House, now shifting its focus to this project. Legacie Construction will deliver the scheme.
John Morley, managing director of Legacie, said: “Parliament Square will have a transformative impact on Liverpool and will provide a significant boost to the area immediately outside of the city centre.
“It is a unique development in that it will offer all of the facilities of a hotel on a residential complex. There will be restaurants, boutique shops and amenities including a gym and rooftop spa that will be available to residents. The public plaza will also be a gateway into the Baltic Triangle.
“This is a major development. The significant international and regional interest in the scheme reflects Liverpool’s appeal as a thriving destination to live and work. We expect it to become one of Liverpool’s most popular addresses.”
