Developer HLS Liverpool wants to demolish a derelict building to construct 47 apartments by Everton Park, under plans designed by UAN Architecture.
Next to Rupert Lane Recreation Ground on Everton Road, the proposed building will sit on a 14,800 sq ft site. That land is still occupied by a deteriorating event hall known as The View Function Suite, which has no roof. What remains of the building has been subject to vandalism.
The proposed 48,000 sq ft apartment building would offer both one and two-bedroom units across five floors. The basement would have parking for 37 vehicles, including two electric vehicle parking bays. There would also be storage for up to 46 bicycles.
UAN Architecture adjusted the design to fit nearby Georgian terraces, many of which are grade two-listed buildings. Like those terraces, the apartment building would be set back two metres from the pavement and have low railings. Plans call for a largely brick building, with painted metal cladding as contrast on the upper floors.
Residents and guests would enter the building from Everton Road, while vehicles would access it from Fitzclarence Way, a side street.
Liverpool City Council is considering the application, but it is not the first time the council has heard of the scheme. A pre-planning application enquiry for the project was sent to the authority in 2019.
E3 Cube is the project manager and quantity surveyor, while Caulmert is the transport consultant.
