Major Liverpool residential towers poised to proceed

A 312-apartment scheme in the centre of Liverpool has been recommended for planning approval.

The £15m project, on Vauxhall Road north of the city centre, was recommended for approval by council officers ahead of a planning committee meeting next week.

Client Azure Horizons will develop two towers on the site, which currently houses a car repair workshop and a vacant one-storey building.

The towers will rise to 11 and 13 storeys respectively and have been designed by Blok Architects.

Previous plans for the site included a scheme to build five mixed-use blocks containing more than 900 apartments, but these were never progressed.

The Vauxhall Road development is the latest in a series of high-profile residential developments planned in the city.

Designs were revealed for Liverpool’s tallest tower, a 42-storey PRS scheme close to Liverpool’s world heritage site, last week, while developer Elliot Group has submitted plans for a three-tower residential project worth £250m.

Morgan Sindall bagged £47m of work in the city last week after being picked for two phases of the extension of the Knowledge Quarter.
