Freemasons Falconer Chester Hall

Planning approved for four new residential blocks at Freemason’s Row

Four new blocks of residential apartments have been green-lit for the emerging Pumpfields district of Liverpool.

The blocks, to be developed by Vinco Group, have been designed by Falconer Chester Hall and will provide more than 600 apartments within what is becoming a significant new residential district on the northern edge of the city centre.

Freemasons Row will be transformed as a disused former crane hire site of 0.67 hectares will have its remaining buildings demolished and four interconnected blocks built of between 11 and 15 storeys.

In total, there will be 656 residential units comprising 60 studios, 324 one-bed units, 242 two-bed apartments, 16 three-bed apartments and 14 two-bed townhouses to foster the emergence of a diverse community within the development.

The scheme consists of four stepped blocks placed on the North – South orientation to allow maximum sun penetration to podium garden decks between the buildings.

On the mid level of the scheme there is an amenity area to the front of each of the blocks with wrap around balconies and access to external `sky gardens’, suspended between the buildings.

‘Pumpfields and the newly-designated Ten Streets district are bringing a new level of activity and commercial energy to the northern fringe of an expanding city centre and this development will help further this direction of growth,’ said Falconer Chester Hall Managing Director Adam Hall.

‘The development fits comfortably alongside other residential projects for this area which are playing a key role in the city’s ongoing regeneration.’
