Northern Irish developer West Bay Capital put its planning application for 30 Pall Mall in to Liverpool City Council today.
If delivered, the £50m project will provide 225,000 sq ft of new grade A office space, including an 18-storey tower that the developer claims will be the UK's tallest single core commercial building.
The Broadway Malyan-designed scheme will comprise two separate buildings with textured facades and a covered internal courtyard. In addition to the office space the development will ground floor cafes, restaurants and shops.
Ashley Moore of West Bay, commented: "We are delighted to be submitting this application and it signifies our belief that Liverpool can become one of the UK's premier business destinations. The city has some fantastic strengths as a business destination, but it is essential that it continues to grow its supply of top quality commercial office space if it is going to maintain its post-Capital of Culture renaissance in the longer term."
The building is intended to achieve BREEAM 'excellent' rating for its environmental credentials. Mason Owen has been appointed as letting agent.
