The next phase of Liverpool’s Parliament Residence looks set to go ahead after city planning officers recommended the scheme for approval.
Liverpool City Council planning officers earmarked the scheme, which is being brought forward by developer Prime Centrum, for approval when the city’s planning committee meets next week.
Designed by architects Falconer Chester Hall, the scheme includes a mixed 11 and eight storey building which will house 145 buy-to-let apartments, as well as a retail unit on the ground floor.
The new development will be situated on a site between Parliament Street and Grafton Street in the city’s Baltic Triangle. The site currently houses a roofing yard with an office and warehouse alongside, all of which will be demolished to make way for the new building.
The 11-storey building forms the second phase of the developer’s Parliament Residence, the first phase of which is currently being built by Greater Manchester-based Goodwin Construction.
Phase one is the smaller of the two developments and includes 44 homes over six storeys.
The overall Parliament Residence is believed to have a development value of around £12m and is one of a number of larger residential schemes that have either won planning approval or started on site in the last six months in the city.

In April, Nobles Construction won a £40m deal to build a residential tower for Blok Architects’ development arm in the city, while Peel also submitted plans for a £21m residential tower at Liverpool Waters.
Plans were also approved in March for a £60m apartment scheme by developer and contractor Anwyl.
