On 30 June 2017, North West Industrial Estates Limited submitted an application to Liverpool City Council for a mixed use residential-led development comprising 240 residential units, ground floor commercial space, on-site car parking and public realm improvements adjacent to Brunswick Dock, Liverpool.
The application site is currently surplus car parking associated with Brunswick Business Park.
Designed by Falconer Chester Hall Architects, the proposed building rises a maximum of 12 storeys and comprises a mix of one and two bedroom high quality, spacious apartments, many with private terraces.
The scheme also proposes significant improvements to the existing public realm creating an attractive living and working environment at the north end of Brunswick Dock, continuing the ongoing regeneration of the dock area.
Following public consultation and engagement with officers the scheme was revised to include a total of 13,300 sqft commercial space, alongside the 240 apartments.
Planning permission was subsequently granted by Liverpool City Council at Planning Committee on Tuesday 20 February 2018.
