TJ Morris plans next phase of Liverpool redevelopment 

The discount retailer is seeking permission to deliver 250 student beds on a plot next to TJ Hughes’ Hughes House and Audley House sites, which already have consent for a combined 700 apartments. 

Working with developer Caro, TJ Morris wants to redevelop a site bound by Audley Street, Ilford Street, Gildart Street, and Kempston Street in Liverpool’s Fabric District. 

At present the site is under-utilised and occupied by a Home Bargains shop and two accompanying warehouses. There is also a Kexgill student block fronting Gildart Street. 

Under the proposals lodged with Liverpool City Council, TJ Morris wants to deliver a three- to seven-storey scheme that will see some parts of the existing block demolished. 

The warehouses will be knocked down, while the Home Bargains store on Audley Street will be retained and upgraded.  

The student block fronting Gildart Street will stay, as will the Kempston Street façade of the former Dart and Shamrock pub. 

Neil Carlyle, managing director of Caro Developments, said: “Good design and placemaking are key elements of the project and we are pleased to have brought this submission forward.”

Designed by Falconer Chester Hall, the student scheme would provide 36 studios and 214 one-bedroom units. 

Zerum is advising on planning. To learn more about the plans, search for reference number 23F/2153 on Liverpool City Council’s planning portal. 

Nearby, TJ Hughes is at work to transform the former Hughes House site into 500 apartments. Earlier this year, Liverpool City Council granted TJ Hughes permission to convert Audley House into 199 homes.

Good luck with this one as the whole project looks decent and will bring life back to these streets.
This is the 2nd TJ Morris backed scheme recently following the announcement of their plans near the top of Duke Street, which looked good quality design.

More good news from TJ Morris, investing their money in their home town.
Plenty of encouraging developments emerging in Liverpool at present.

Is it not TJ Hughes which is delivering Audley House and Hughes House, which is a different company from TJ Morris?
