Green light for more than 200 New Bird Street apartments

Plans for more than 200 new homes to be built on New Bird Street were approved yesterday (26 June).

The modified designs for the scheme, which is proposed to replace the former Bogan’s Carpets warehouse, also include ground floor commercial space.

On behalf of Legacie Developments, architects Falconer Chester Hall put forward revised plans which retained the principles from the previously approved scheme from Tim Groom Architects but added extra apartments to ‘better meet market needs’.

Now featuring 202 residential units, made up of 109 one-bedroom, 90 two and three three-bedroom duplex apartments, the proposed Baltic Triangle development is also said to have a ‘more efficient’ layout.

Following yesterday’s decision by Liverpool City Council’s planning committee, Adam Hall, managing director of Falconer Chester Hall, says: “The client has an aspiration for the site to provide high quality, contemporary apartments that meet a need for affordable residential accommodation within the city centre. This modified design helps meet that aspiration.”
