Exciting times for Lovely Liverpool…

By North Westerner

Those new towers will look fantastic from Everton’s new waterfront stadium.

The cartoon renders of the Elliot scheme are Miss leading, it won’t look anywhere near that good… it it gets built at all.

By Prudence

Excellent to see so many 1 bed apartments sold to overseas buyers, by off shore developers. Well done Liverpool. When will other cities wake up to this excellent way of regenerating their cities by creating lots of unwanted “investments” in all the parts of the city where land can be picked up for nothing and ignoring the centre or the bizarre economics of the overseas investor model.

By Slightly sceptical

@Prudence It will be getting built and will look even better than the pic )))

By Jos'e

Liverpool off plan sales with guaranteed yield are £250 psf at best. Infinity looks like it stacks up to a GDV of £130 million, but with nearly 800,000 of high rise space to build to deliver it, should cost £140 million (£175 psf all in), without land, finance or profit. Clearly one for the brave.

By Slightly sceptical

They look great but hope there will be some public realm and green areas around these. It would be good to see more living buildings to provide more greenery in the city and to help combat air pollution. This would really help transform the city.
