New student accommodation planned for Hardman Street

More student housing could be built in the city centre under new plans submitted to Liverpool City Council.

Proposals to demolish Hardman House on Hardman Street and replace it with a seven-storey residential complex have been revealed.

If given the go-ahead the new building would include 90 student accommodation cluster apartments offering a range of one, two, three and four-bedroom flats.

The ground floor of Hardman House currently is made up of vacant retail units and takeaway outlets, but it is unclear whether the replacement complex will include commercial space.

The application site lies in close proximity to main campuses of both Liverpool John Moores University and the University of Liverpool and is also near to a number of popular bars and restaurants.

Liverpool-based development and investment firm Carpenter Investments has been named as the applicant behind the proposals.

Your Move has reached out to Carpenter Investments for a comment on its student accommodation plans.
