Legacie Developments has announced the inminent start of work on its Azure Residence, a £20m project at Rose Place, north Liverpool, with completion pencilled in for December 2019.
The development is to include 127 apartments along with a gym and 4,000 sq ft of retail. It is one of several projects coming forward in the area around St Anne Street, close to the Project Jennifer long-term regeneration scheme.
There are several residential conversions in the pipeline, while the new Merseyside Police headquarters is expected to be located between Scotland Road and St Anne Street.
Legacie said the scheme will create between 80 and 100 jobs during the construction phase and 30 full-time administrative and service jobs when the residential complex opens.
A lLegacie spokesman said: “Azure Residence will deliver high quality apartment living, new retail and leisure opportunities. Above all, it will continue the transformation of the Scotland Road and St Anne Street area into a vibrant and thriving place to live.
“We very much see this development as an extension to Liverpool city centre and our target market will be people who want city centre living.
“We’re looking forward to starting work and continuing our positive contribution to the booming development activity currently underway in Liverpool. We want to play our part in the city’s resurgence as a brilliant destination to live and work.”
Legacie’s other projects include the restoration of Reliance House on Water Street, the redevelopment of shops in Dale Street and Ropermaker Place on Renshaw Street.
The company partners with Liverpool-based Ascot Property Investments in financing projects.
