Nexus kicks off £35m Liverpool scheme
Located in the city’s Baltic Triangle, the development will offer 174 apartments within a nine-storey building off Brassey Street.
The £35m scheme, next door to Nexus Residential’s One Baltic Square, was previously being brought forward by Caro Developments. Nexus acquired the site last year and has now appointed Legacie Contracts to build it out.
Due for completion in the first quarter of 2025, Central Park will include a mixture of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with a “five-star hotel-style reception and concierge”, as well as a private roof terrace, according to Nexus.
A £1m public piazza is also planned. The public realm is inspired by Liverpool’s Royal Albert Dock and will feature sculptures, floral arches, trees, benches, alcoves, and artwork, Nexus said.
Designed by Studio RBA, the development is being delivered in collaboration with sale agent RW Invest.
Central Park will also include cycle storage, secure underground car parking and a gymnasium for residents, while
Eco-friendly features such as solar panels, electric vehicle chargers, heat recovery systems, LED lighting, and air source heat pumps will also form part of the scheme.
Nexus has also pledged to plant 100 trees for every apartment purchased.
Michael Gledhill, director at Nexus Residential, said the project would bring “luxury, and first-rate living to the Baltic Triangle”.
“Nexus Residential is proud to create a centralised residential island within the Baltic Triangle, which is quickly becoming one of the most desirable places to live in the UK.
“The residential island, including the £1m piazza, offers professional surroundings with refined amenities covering work, leisure, and everything in between.”
The site has long been earmarked for redevelopment.
In 2018, Eloquent Global won planning consent for a 174-apartment scheme on the site, drawn up by Studio RBA.
Caro Development acquired the site out of receivership in 2020 following the collapse of the previous owner Eloquent, before selling the site to Nexus.
