Further details of a mixed-use scheme at Park Lane – comprising apartments and a 260-bed hotel across 16 storeys – have been revealed.
Elliot Group is behind the project, with founder Elliot Lawless having acquired the scheme earlier this year from the investors that he sold it to in December 2015 as part of a joint venture with Anthony Maxwell-Jones of Valorem Investment Partners.
Permission for One Park Lane was secured in 2014, with the original application being to construct two buildings, from 10 to 16 storeys, comprising 264 apartment, as well as four commercial units.
The new proposals – minor details of which emerged earlier this year – represent an amendment to the implemented scheme and have been submitted in line with the applicant's current aspirations for the site.
Lined up now are two buildings of up to nine and 16 storeys, comprising 90 apartments and 260 hotel rooms.
Block A – the residential element – would be the larger of the two and would include a commercial unit on the ground floor.
Proposed for block B – the hotel – is a large restaurant/bar on the ground floor, and a business centre and gym on the first floor. This level would also have seven double and 11 twin rooms, with 15 double and 22 twin on the second to seventh floors, and nine double and 11 twin on the eighth.
A planning statement drawn up by Zerum said: "The overall design aspirations for the scheme are to achieve a high-quality mixed-use development which creates a recognisable landmark on the edge of the Baltic Triangle and Liverpool city centre.
"The site at present is vacant, cleared land, albeit used as a temporary car park, and as such is not contributing to the economy. In contrast, once developed, jobs will be created in the commercial unit, residential concierge, maintenance and management for the residential use, common areas and public realm, and within the hotel."
