Packaged Living, Affinius lodge plans for £100m Liverpool BTR
The partnership, which acquired the Ovatus site on Leeds Street from Prospect Capital last year, wants to build two buildings rising to 19 and 25 storeys.
Packaged Living and Affinius Capital, previously named USAA, have submitted a planning application to Liverpool City Council for the 434-apartment development, known as Old Hall Place.
Designed by Falconer Chester Hall, the scheme would be located at the junction of Old Hall Street and Leeds Street.
The vacant site consists of an unused office building formerly home to Littlewoods’ computer centre.
Part of the site benefits from planning permission for a 27-storey tower with 168 apartments, a scheme drawn up by Hodder + Partners and approved by Liverpool City Council in 2017.
In 2018, a consultation was launched on plans for a 48-storey tower on another part of the site, dubbed Ovatus II. A planning application for this building, which would have become Liverpool’s tallest, was never submitted.
Re-Form is the landscape architect and Turley is advising Packaged and Affinius on planning.
Turley has worked with Packaged previously in the North West on its 352-home Castings scheme.
