Pall Mall tower a ‘much-needed boost’ to PRS sector

The approval of a £60 million eco-friendly apartment complex in Pall Mall will bring a “much-needed boost” to Liverpool’s private rented sector (PRS), according to a local agent.

Alan Bevan, managing director of City Residential, believes the Anwyl Construction scheme will boost other regeneration initiatives in the vicinity.

Alan, whose firm will act as an advisor on the project, says: “Pall Mall is a vibrant upcoming area and the Anwyl apartments scheme will complement other regeneration within Liverpool’s commercial district and provide a much-needed boost to the private rental sector in the area.”

Standing at 21 storeys at its highest point, the building’s eco elements include green roofs which will recycle rainwater, solar panels and modern floor-to-ceiling windows to minimise the need for electric lighting.

Liverpool City Council gave the development comprising 336 flats alongside retail space and a private garden terrace the green light at its planning committee meeting on 28 March.

An apartment block at the former Bogan’s Carpets site in the Baltic Triangle was among the other projects approved at the planning meeting, with the applicant securing permission to replace the existing building with 156 flats with commercial units on the ground and mezzanine floors.

Elsewhere, Keepmoat Homes’ plans to build 147 houses on the former Speke Comprehensive School site, which has been disused since 2002, were rubber stamped by the planning committee.
