Plans in for Norton scrap metal site
Chaloner Street Developments has submitted plans to redevelop the former Norton scrap metal site in Liverpool city centre into a 650-home mixed-use scheme.
The two-acre site is located on the corner of Chaloner Street and Upper Parliament Street and is currently derelict.
The application proposes to build a mixed-use scheme comprising 650 residential units and a 200-bedroom hotel.
In addition, the application outlines plans for 25,000 sq ft of commercial, leisure, retail, and arts space, 22,000 sq ft of co-working or studio office space and a 152-space car park.
The three-block development will range in height from 16 to 32 storeys and forms part of the wider regeneration of the Baltic Triangle district.
Once completed, the scheme would create around 250 jobs, according to the developer.
MCAU is the architect and The Planning Studio is advising on planning.
David Skidmore, founding director of MCAU, said: “Mixed-use development does not work on every site, but in Liverpool and particularly in this location where there already exists a dynamism, cultural awareness and capacity for urban living, we believe this development could become an exciting addition to the city’s urban offer.
“The aspiration for this site location is to create a balanced and thriving mixed-use development and, in doing so, to enhance the Baltic Triangle’s offer.”
