Sourced, Network Rail in £110m Liverpool housing plan

Sourced Development Group and Network Rail have submitted a planning application to Liverpool City Council for the £110 million redevelopment of four residential property sites to provide 507 apartments at three adjoining plots on Love Lane and one further south on Pall Mall.

Designed by BDP, the residential blocks will reach between nine and 11 storeys and comprise apartments for market sale.

The scheme would feature 147 one-bedroom apartments, 330 with two bedrooms, and 30 with three beds.

The scheme is located close to Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters and Everton FC’s new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.

“The Sourced Development Group/Network Rail JV is waiting to hear back from the Sovini Group and Regenda Homes, which have been approached over delivering the scheme’s affordable element,” said Sourced.

“Redundant railway arches and subterranean tunnels located on two of the plots would be repurposed into more than 10,000 sq ft of commercial space under the proposals.

“A 200-metre linear park also forms part of the joint venture’s vision for the site.”

Sourced said a planning statement prepared by WSP states that discussions with Liverpool City Council’s planning team have been positive and that the authority is ‘supportive of the development proposals’.”

According to a viability appraisal prepared by Tim Claxton Property, the scheme has a net development value of £110 million and will cost £101 million to build.

The project team includes SK Transport, OFR, Wardell Armstrong, Simply CDM, Steven A Hunt and Associates, and Rachel Hacking Ecology.
