Construction start date for Liverpool’s third tallest building

Construction work on the first of three residential towers on the edge of Liverpool’s commercial district will get underway in September.

Elliot Group has appointed city-based firm Vermont Construction to build Tower A at its £250 million Infinity development.

Rising to 403 ft, the apartment block will become Liverpool’s third tallest building behind West Tower and St. John’s Beacon.

More than 70% of the apartments in the tower have been sold to UK and overseas investors, with a new price record for the city of £398 per square foot being achieved.

Work clearing the Pall Mall site for the 39-storey tower began in April and construction will commence in September, with an anticipated completion date of spring 2020.

The residential block will include 416 homes, made up of a mix of three, two, one-bed and studio apartments.

The remaining towers in the project will rise to 27 and 33 storeys.

Elliot Lawless of Elliot Group says: “We looked at Vermont’s track record building towers in Liverpool and Salford Quays and it was clear that they had a firm grip on the issues posed by going tall.

“It’s good to be able to maintain our track record of working with a strong local supply chain.

“Building capacity in the sector will benefit the city overall.”

The entire Infinity project will be Liverpool’s largest single housing project, comprising 1,002 apartments, a triple-height luxury spa, gym and pool as well as more than 10,000 sq ft of commercial space.

Other features will include a private lounge, dining rooms, cinema and meeting spaces.
