Owners of fire-hit Liverpool scheme lodge plans for flats nearby 

The duo that owns part of the stalled Fox Street Village damaged in a blaze in January has readied plans for apartments a stone’s throw away.

SGL 4, whose directors are Darren McClellan and Keiran Moore, is behind plans for 30 flats on the corner of Fox Street and Richmond Row in Liverpool.

McClellan and Moore are also the directors of SGL1, which owns the half-built 138-apartment Liverpool block that caught fire earlier this year.

SGL 4’s five-storey development would be constructed on a plot around 100 yards south of the site of the fire.

The proposals include a mix of studios, and one- and two-bedroom flats.

Brock Carmichael is leading on design and Zerum is the planning consultant.

To learn more about the plans, search for application reference number 24F/0585 on Liverpool City Council’s planning portal.

The fire-damaged Fox Street Village was originally being developed by Primesite. In total, the project featured plans for 358 apartments across three new-build blocks and the conversion of the Swainbricks building.

Both Fox Street Village Limited, the Primesite vehicle behind the scheme, and Linmari Construction – which built the shell of the now burned-out building – have been dissolved.

Nice to see some movement in the area. Shame its not a bit taller given that there is a few 8 storey developments in the area.

A betting person might wager that this might not happen.

The two developers were part of a development in Salford that hit problems owing investors a lot of money. And as stated they owned a part built site near to this one that suffered a mysterious blaze.
Not a good CV is it.

Wise up LCC and keep your hands firmly in your pockets all potential investors!

Good to see that people are committed to bringing sites in areas desperately in need of regeneration back in to use despite the ongoing challenges faced by developers
