Peel Land & Property is holding a public consultation event on Friday to gather views on proposals for its first scheme for the private rented sector, a residential tower within Liverpool Waters operated by housing provider The Regenda Group.
Potential designs for the project are yet to be revealed, but the architect is understood to be Hodder + Partners. The £21m development is expected to be made up of 105 one- and two-bed apartments, which will be managed by Regenda’s subsidiary PRS company, Redwing Living.
At around 85,000 sq ft, the multi-storey apartment block in Princes Dock will be built by Peel as the company’s first PRS project, and then bought by Regenda.
The project on William Jessop Way is called ‘Plaza 1821’, reflecting Princes Dock’s opening on the day of the Prince Regent’s coronation as George IV in 1821.
Plaza 1821 is the latest residential scheme planned at Liverpool Waters. Housing association Your Housing Group announced in October that it was working up plans for a 30-storey tower totalling 276 apartments, designed by Brock Carmichael. The flats will be delivered under the Hive brand, the housing association’s PRS arm. In September, Moda Living was granted planning permission for a 34-storey PRS tower, made up of 304 flats designed by Falconer Chester Hall.
The public consultation event will take place on Friday 10 February, from 11am to 6pm, at the Liverpool Waters marketing suite at No. 12 Princes Dock.
Neil Baumber, Peel Land & Property’s development director for residential, said: “Liverpool Waters is certainly one of the most dynamic regeneration projects in the city’s history and it’s now really starting to take shape. People in the city and beyond are really excited about what’s to come as we are at Peel.
“As part of our strategic waters strategy we are committed to creating a vibrant, energised and distinctive new part of the city, a place where people want to work, play and live – that’s where Plaza 1821 comes in. People sit at the very heart of Liverpool Waters, hence why we’re encouraging everybody to come along to the public consultation event to see our plans and share their thoughts.”
