BCEGI has been confirmed as the lead contractor for Moda Living’s £82m Lexington scheme in Liverpool.
The new residential scheme includes a 34-storey tower overlooking the waterfront and forms part of Peel’s £5bn Liverpool Waters regeneration.
Chinese contractor BCEGI will deliver 325 build-to-rent homes ranging from one to three bedrooms in size, as well as 15,000 sq ft of amenity space and a sky lounge.
The building will also include a dedicated gym, workout space and a “digital wellness platform”.
The Lexington is BCEGI’s first major residential scheme in the city.
In August the contractor secured a deal to deliver a £1bn regeneration of Bolton’s town centre.
BCEGI is also the main contractor at Middlewood Locks, the £1bn mixed-use scheme in Salford.
Moda managing director Tony Brooks said: “Our ambition is to create a true landmark that will add to the already world-famous Liverpool waterfront.
“BCEGI has a proven track record of successfully delivering some of the North-west’s biggest schemes, and we’re delighted to have them on board.”
BCEGI lead director Yu Dongwen said: “The Lexington is a flagship development that will significantly contribute to the huge transformation of Liverpool Waters. We are looking forward to building our first project in Liverpool.”
