X1 takes over 278-home Liverpool Waters project

Patagonia Place had initially been set to be delivered by Your Housing Group, but the housing provider opted to walk away from the 31-storey tower last year.

Situated in Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters, Patagonia Place is now to be developed by X1 and built by main contractor Vermont who is already on site at Princes Dock.

X1 said it would continue with YHG’s £50m plans for the site, which planning consultant Arup helped secure permission for in 2020. The proposals call for 278 apartments designed by Falconer Chester Hall.

Chris Capes, director of development at Liverpool Waters, expressed his pleasure in X1 taking the helm at Patagonia Place.

“With planning already approved by Liverpool City Council and a world-renowned residential developer at the helm, we are delighted that the development of Patagonia Place can now proceed full steam ahead,” Capes said.

“Patagonia Place is a high-quality proposition, and will be yet another incredible residential development for Princes Dock,” he continued.

“It will create more quality homes that meets the needs of the local market and will secure local jobs and investment in an enviable waterfront location and we look forward to bringing the development forward as planned.”

When complete, Patagonia Place will join fellow residential developments Plaza 1821, delivered by Peel L&P and Regenda Group, and The Lexington, designed by Moda Living.

Nice position…nice location.

Some very much needed activity for Princes Dock and Liverpool Waters, been waiting a long time for this, shame it`s only 31 floors but it`s positive news. Groundworks already on site so should be ramping up activity soon, meanwhile the Waterloo Dock scheme looks to be getting on site too. Hopefully Peel are talking to other developers about the Central Docks area between here and the Everton stadium,where a small park is planned too.

Between this and the football stadium, the skyline will improve massively on an already impressive waterfront.

Good news at last for this site. Let’s hope X1 stick to the original render and not spoil it by using too much cladding. Time will tell, it will be a statement building as shown above.
Can they add a few more floors?

By Liverpolitis

This was designed and passed by planning almost 10 years ago. It’s now out of date and such a prime site should be reopened to international competition and wait wait for a building of international standard to be built. Again, small town Liverpool accepting second best.

Brilliant news

By David

@Steve, I take your point about the design being a number of years old now but if this gets delayed any longer we might be left with no building at all. If the Hive had gone ahead as planned we would have had the tower installed now with residents in and maybe this would have attracted other developers on site, as there is still land on Princes Dock available but no plans it seems. For me a really attractive site is where the cruise liner “tent” is at the moment but Peel don`t seem to be in any rush to develop it ,even though it could be offices, hotels and restaurants.

I can see balconies on the middle building but not the others

By Balcony Warrior

I don’t think this area looks good enough for what is essentially Liverpool’s prime location. It looks cheap/similar to Salford Quays.
Even the Lexington is starting to look a little tired.

Great to see this at last ….skyline is quite impressive on princes dock ….the more and higher the better . Hopefully now city council seems to be stepping away from the cruise liner terminal and hotel much needed progress will be made

By George

It will indeed improve the waterfront . These are hardly the 3 Graces but nobody can build like that anymore and if getting them built means not giving them all balconies , well other cities do it so have at it.

This whole area could have been developed 10 years ago with some prestigious projects. Sadly the City Council rested on its laurels and put World heritage status at the forefront and cast aside serious development. At least now it appears green shoots of growth are starting to show through from Patagonia Place to Bramley Moore. Lets hope the decision makers and the investors can see the huge potential and opportunities waiting to unfold on the empty space in-between. It is such a shame we are so far behind our neighbours down the East Lancs. They have the foresight to preserve the past and build for the future.

Been looking over the mersey for this structure to be built…If it is true ; then my wait is over. Been reading through other comments , and I totally agree “I’d have liked this structure to have peaked at 50 floors….Still think it’ll be quite impressive….Last point PEEL…are really pushing ahead with Liverpools waterfront , let us hope they achieve their goals ” with the complete co-operation of the Liverpool Council…….

By Shaun Mackin

Patagonia Place is happening but let`s not forget the cruise liner terminal is sorely needed here too, maybe to lower costs it should be incorporated into another building eg with a multi-storey hotel and the cruise terminal on the the lower 2 floors. The in-river plan was a good one but building in the river maybe doubles the price, and now that the council has stepped back from this scheme the private sector will have find the money.
