More than 250 apartments could be built across two blocks next to The Keel development at Liverpool’s Queens Dock.
Glenbrook Property and Moorfield, the same team behind the Private Rented Sector (PRS) scheme, have submitted plans to build on the vacant land located to the east of the waterfront development.
The proposal, designed by architects Brock Carmichael, includes 257 apartments in total alongside residential amenity space, servicing, landscaping, car parking and associated works.
If approved, the two residential blocks would be constructed on the site of the former HMRC building’s car park.
The Keel, which opened last year, has proven a success among tenants as it is now said to be 82% let.
Guy Butler, director at Glenbrook says: “Liverpool has a very healthy residential market and The Keel has become a firm favourite with renters in the city thanks to the spacious apartments with waterside views, and the enviable location on the riverside with good links to the city.
“We have worked closely with Liverpool City Council to design a scheme that sits comfortably alongside The Keel and the wider environment, whilst respecting the buffer zone of the World Heritage Site. This new development will provide much needed housing in an accessible and attractive location and, as with all of our schemes, will be delivered to the highest design and management standards.”
