Planning officers at Liverpool City Council have recommended an application for 44 flats within the Baltic Triangle be approved at the council’s next planning meeting.
The plans for the plot at the corner of Parliament Street and Grafton Street have been submitted by the owner, Joe Larkin, who operates a haulage business from the site.
NJSR Architects designed the building, which will include 44 apartments with a mix of studio, one- and two-bedrooms.
Construction of the six-storey block would see the demolition of the industrial units currently occupying the site.
The scheme is opposite the planned £150m regeneration project at the former Cain’s Brewery site.
The planning application seeks outline approval, with details to be confirmed at a later date.
Liverpool’s planning committee is due to meet on Tuesday 23 February to discuss the scheme.
