The projects were for two private residential schemes and two new student accommodation developments – all for different clients.
`Usually we are representing one, or occasionally two clients on these occasions, but to have four projects up for planning is extremely rare,’ said our Managing Director Adam Hall. `The practice has been incredibly busy with work here in Liverpool, and today demonstrated the strength of our order book.’ The successful proposals include a residential scheme for a vacant cleared site at Simpson Street for Baltic Developments providing 156 compact residential studios with 12 ground floor managed office units and 3 meeting rooms plus a rooftop garden.
`This is aimed at the young, professional market and should offer an affordable alternative for those seeking to live in the city centre,’ said Adam.
An application for developer Jam Works Ltd to bring back into use floors two to eight of 11-17 Parker Street in the city centre was approved.
We also designed a 352-bed student property on vacant land at Chatham Place, Overbury Street and Queensland Street for System Ltd.
Finally we produced a scheme for almost 400 bedrooms for Gipsy International on the now derelict site of the former Imperial Student Halls of Residence at the junction of Byrom Street and Great Crosshall Street.
