Four chase £75m Liverpool scheme


FOUR firms are vying for a £75 million deal to build a mixed-use development on the seafront in Liverpool.

Laing O'Rourke, Bovis Lend Lease, HBG and Carillion are all circling round the deal for a joint venture team of Countryside Properties and Neptune Developments. Tenders are due back in September.

The Mann Island scheme will feature a cluster of buildings arranged in an L-shape and centred around a wedgeshaped office block.

The two adjacent buildings will provide 376 residential apartments. Project architect Broadway Malyan submitted proposals to the city council last month.

A source at Neptune said: 'We have only just put this in for planning but, because we changed the designs after a consultation period, we are hoping to achieve early planning approval and start on site early next year.'

The latest redesign includes moving two residential buildings by 3 m to reveal more of the city's famous Three Graces.
