CGI of the scheme formerly proposed for the Pall Mall site

Pinnacle £90m Pall Mall scheme approved

Pinnacle MC Global's plans for a mixed-use development in Liverpool, including 366 homes, 50,000 sq ft of commercial, retail and leisure units, and an 18-storey tower, have been signed-off.

The scheme, which has been branded North Point, will be spread across a series of refurbished and new buildings on a site to the north of Leeds Street. The residential aspect is a mix of large apartments, smaller flats, town houses, studios and live-work accommodation.

A number of existing buildings at 70-90 Pall Mall will be demolished and replaced by a series of buildings ranging from seven to ten storeys in height. The 18-storey tower will stand at one end of the development with a roof garden and terrace.

The site includes Victorian warehouses frontages which have been incorporated into the scheme.

The development is designed by Blok Architecture. PHD1 Construction is the development partner with Pinnacle.

PHD1 expects to be on site by July 2015 and completion is due in November 2017.

Peter McInnes, chairman of PHD1, said: "This is a hugely exciting project for us and, we believe, for the city. North Point will establish itself as a distinct destination, open up a different kind of urban living and take the expansion of the city centre outwards in a new direction.

"It also adds to our growing portfolio of development projects within the city which add up to some £600m worth of investment."

Pinnacle, PHD1 and Blok are also currently working on the £77m Angelgate project, a 344-apartment scheme on a car park site in Dantzic Street in Manchester, on the edge of the Co-operative Estates NOMA regeneration area. The development is due to complete in 2017.

Liverpool city changes every year and looks amazing it’s definitely got its mojo back the waterfront is amazing and culture and events puts other cities in the shade , recently visited Manchester and Leeds but not a patch on Liverpool ..really like cities with a waterfront makes it feel international ,love the ships boats bringing passengers from all over the world ..that’s why I moved here from Manchester to landlocked and grey for me ..

Nice to hear Vegemite! Both cities have their strengths but having lived in both I agree Liverpool has more of the feel of an ‘international’ city, with the Waterfront and impressive old buildings. It would be good to think they could work together to complement each other!

You have to say, this sounds like a great scheme. Personally pleased that elements of the Pall Mall facade will be retained. It could be one of those rare times when a genuinely positive ripple effect will be felt. There is so many opprortunities around there. Vauxhall is the new Baltic!

Have to agree, Liverpool has got that "feel" of a city joined together by it’s past and it’s present. Manchester & Leeds are great cities and whilst Manchester has that big city buzz, Liverpool is arguably the more pleasing city on the eye. Leeds has a long way to go although it looks pretty grim in parts, more so than the grim parts of Liverpool & Manchester. I really hope that Liverpool & Manchester can work together, they would be formidable economically. Liverpool has the sea access that can feed right in to Manchester and the latter has the global connectivity, what a combination!!
