Following the successful conversion of the former HMRC building at Queens Dock in Liverpool, Moorfield Group and developer Glenbrook have submitted a planning application for a further 257 apartments on the remaining land at the waterfront site in Liverpool.

The first phase of the 240-apartment Keel development completed in September last year as arguably the region’s first bespoke private rented scheme and is now almost fully let. The main contractor was Pochin. Glenbrook said phase two, designed by Brock Carmichael, would be built to a similarly high standard and extend the range of apartment sizes available.

Guy Butler, director of Glenbrook, said: “Liverpool has a very healthy residential market and The Keel has become a firm favourite with renters in the city thanks to the spacious apartments with waterside views, and the enviable location on the riverside with good links to the city.

“We have worked closely with Liverpool City Council to design a scheme that sits comfortably alongside The Keel and the wider environment, whilst respecting the buffer zone of the World Heritage Site. This new development will provide much needed housing in an accessible and attractive location and, as with all of our schemes, will be delivered to the highest design and management standards.”
