The framework for the final building in the £100m transformation of Wolstenholme Square in Liverpool has completed ahead of schedule.
Newry Construction has been tasked with bringing forward the 151,620 sq ft building – called The Address – which will include 32 studios, 102 one bed apartments and 66 two bed homes.
There will also be two commercial units on the ground floor, with the developer committed to leasing them to local entrepreneurs.
The £40m luxury apartment block is located on the former headquarters of social care charity PSS, which Elliot Group acquired in June 2017, and will rise to 11 storeys.
To date, 310 apartments have been completed and occupied at Wolstenholme Square and a lettings campaign for the ground floor units has begun via Worthington Owen.
"I'm delighted we're ahead of programme," said Mick Larkin of Newry Construction. "This is our eleventh building for Elliot Group and we've developed a way of working with the client and its professional team that is streamlined and efficient."
Project architect Mike Gore of Falconer Chester Hall's Liverpool studio added: "Our brief was to set a new standard of luxury and fit-out and we've enjoyed delivering on the quality aspirations of the client. It's in a premium location on a quiet street adjacent to Liverpool ONE and we know from earlier phases of the project that tenants prize this highly."
When completed, Wolstenholme Square will comprise more than 700 homes, 12,000 sq ft of ground floor commercial space and a new hotel. Construction of The Address is anticipated to be completed by March 2020.
