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. 

Caro is also selling a former police headquarters off Lawson Street in Preston which has planning permission for 227 student flats.

Looks good this. Definitely some decent density being added to that particular area of the baltic

More good news for the south side of Parliament St, but we need more activity in the Baltic Triangle itself as there are large, debris strewn plots with stalled projects or with plans in but nothing happening eg Norton Point, or the office/multi-storey car park planned on Jamaica St/Greenland St.

Lets hope its more successful than some of the other disastrously poorly delivered apartment schemes across Liverpool

Decent looking development in a great location

Things starting to move again in Liverpool. Slow beginnings, etc, but positive nonetheless. More of this sort of thing.

Makes the new Baltic station more viable and urgent… but not a bad design

By George

Is this the final render? This was one of the original ones, later transformed into more of a brickie block. Can you verify please, thank you.

By Liverpolitis

@George , yes the promised Baltic Station can’t come soon enough as this development will add numbers to the recently tenanted large site near the Baltic Market.
The station was due to open in late 2025 but now the rumour is it might be 2028…
…Why ?

Just what Liverpool needs… More unaffordable ugly looking flats. This is terrible news
