Peel L&P has submitted a planning application for the next major development at Liverpool Waters. The application submitted by Peel L&P and Your Housing Group (YHG) is for a 31 storey, residential development, called Patagonia Place, which consists of 278 homes and is located at Princes Dock, one of five neighbourhoods at the €5.7bn (£5bn) waterfront development which has already seen four new residential schemes undertaken.
Liverpool Waters will transform 60 hectares of historic docklands and is the biggest single regeneration project in the history of Liverpool. The development will offer 2,000,000m² of floorspace which will include 9,000 residential homes, 315,000m² of business space and 53,000m² of hotel and conference facilities. The waterfront project will also be the home to a new Cruise liner terminal and hotel as well as a new Isle of Man ferry terminal which is currently under construction as well as the proposed location of the new Everton FC stadium. The residential development has been designed by Faulkner Chester Hall, with Arup providing planning consultation and Vermont in line to build the project.
Darran Lawless, development director at Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters said: "This is another major milestone for Liverpool Waters and despite the challenging environment that the world is currently facing as a result of Covid19 we’re delighted to be able to submit the planning application for this new development. This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Your Housing, our advisory team and contractor Vermont. Due to the current lockdown the application process itself has been a challenge but the response from Liverpool City Council has demonstrated an ability and commitment to continue to function and unlock investment opportunities in the City and we are hopeful that should planning permission be secured work can start in the Autumn creating significant investment and jobs as well as much needed homes for the region.”
Lorraine Donnelly, development director at Your Housing said: "This is a really exciting project for Your Housing, the scale and ambition of Liverpool Waters is something that we are proud to be part of. This development sits on the iconic Liverpool waterfront offering high-quality apartments with incredible views of the Mersey. It’s just a stone’s throw from the city centre and part of one of the city’s most exciting regeneration projects."
