The two-acre site on the corner of Chaloner Street and Upper Parliament Street in Liverpool has planning approval for a mixed-use scheme featuring 650 homes, a 240-bed hotel and 43,500 sq ft of commercial space. 

Agents CBRE and David Sayer Consultancy have been appointed to market the site for sale on behalf of Chaloner Street Developments, which is headed up by directors Robert Taylor and former Liverpool footballer Sean Highdale.  

Mike Gorman, senior director of UK development and residential capital markets at CBRE, said: “The development of Norton Point will add a vibrant mix of residential, leisure and retail accommodation to one of the most lively and creative areas of Liverpool city centre. 

“The scheme offers an exciting opportunity to build a new complex that will sit alongside a number of Liverpool’s premium apartment schemes and iconic landmarks. We anticipate high interest in this opportunity.” 

Chaloner Street Developments won approval for the project in October after lodging plans last January. 

The development originally featured plans for a a 32-storey tower but this was scaled back to 25 storeys prior to planning approval being granted, due to concerns lodged by conservation group Historic England. 

The development, designed by architect MCAU, comprises: 

Block A – 25 storeys, 206 apartments, and 2,400 sq ft of commercial space  

Block B – 15 storeys, 204 apartments, 13,000 sq ft of commercial space on the ground and first floors, and an art gallery  

Block C  – 15 storeys, 228 apartments, and a 204-bedroom, 80,000 sq ft hotel   

In addition, the application outlines plans for a 178-space car park.

This is a brilliant development design. Hopefully a buyer comes soon

When the plans were submitted the developers had no record of building anything, even though they had submitted plans for other schemes that never got off the ground, so it was entirely predictable this would be the outcome.

They have done well those Norton boys! Very astute!

By Bob Dawson

Not a good time to be investing in a scheme like this . Scaled back it may be but there are way too many apartments in an over saturated market in Liverpool.

By Aigburther

Make this low rise affordable housing. The apartment thing is a busted flush and no longer what the city needs as well as being just plain ugly.

A great location opposite the Marina and in the happening Baltic. The new Baltic metro on the Northern Line will ensure continued growth here.

Build more bungalows for the old and infirm. because that’s all that will be left in Liverpool if the Nimby’s have their way complaining about every development and not thinking about others or the future!

By Build it Higher!

These don’t suit Liverpool at all despite the Parochial keyboard warriors who think otherwise, Better think of those who have to live in such unispiring surroundings.
