Green light for £80m Baltic Triangle development

Liverpool City Council has approved plans for an £80 million apartment scheme in the Baltic Triangle.

The development will feature four blocks between eight and 18 storeys linked by a courtyard and public realm on Parliament Street and Greenland Street.

The Legacie Developments scheme, designed by Falconer Chester Hall (FCH), includes 505 apartments and 12 retail/commercial/leisure units totalling more than 20,000 sq ft.

The flats will be a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom properties, with residents having access to a shared roof terrace.

According to FCH, investment in the site will result in 150 full-time jobs during the construction phase and 100 permanent jobs when completed.

Popular venue Constellations, currently based on Greenland Street, will be relocating to Hinterlands at Cains Brewery Village in late autumn 2019 to make way for the development.

Adam Hall, FCH managing director, says: “The proposed development reflects the surrounding context of materials within the Baltic Triangle whilst also providing an exciting opportunity to continue the regeneration of the area.”

Legacie Developments’ other schemes in Liverpool city centre include Reliance House on Water Street and Ropemaker Place on Renshaw Street.
