Nearly 200 new homes planned for Sefton Street land

Plans to build 198 new apartments on land between Sefton Street and Caryl Street have been submitted to Liverpool City Council.

Applicant Eloquent Global is looking to transform a vacant plot into a mix of one and two-bedroom homes across two buildings.

Proposals also include new ground floor office space as well as 110 car parking spaces, 198 cycle parking spaces and an internal courtyard.

A six-storey building will accommodate 95 of the new properties and an eight-story building will include 103 under the plans.

According to a planning document by Roman Summer Associates Ltd on behalf of the applicant, nine of the new homes will be two-bedroom duplex apartments while 147 will be one-bedroom homes and the remaining 42 will be two-bedroom properties.

It says the plans, which would occupy the previously developed site if given the go-ahead, will “have regard to local context, materiality and the best of local distinctiveness, looking to set a benchmark for design quality and style in this locality”.
