Situated on the edge of Liverpool’s Georgian Quarter, boasting 438 residential units with a mix of townhouses, 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms apartments.
The proposals aim to regenerate vacant land located off Upper Parliament Street on the edge of the Georgian Quarter suburb of Liverpool which is currently occupied by the disused Merseyside Caribbean Council Community Centre and a car park. Housed across five modern buildings, the development will provide 438 high quality residential units, communal facilities for residents, a new Caribbean Centre with associated external areas, innovative hard and soft landscaped areas, car parking and cycle storage.
Design inspiration was taken from the surrounding Georgian architecture with extensive use of brick and strong repetitive rhythms in the buildings facades. Neutral colour tones of building materials along Upper Parliament Street compliment the Georgian buildings whilst coloured window fins and glazed bricks utilised along the central landscaped route tie in with the new Caribbean Centre. The new landscaping across the site provides an exciting opportunity to stitch into the existing community with extensive green spaces and new pedestrian routes.
Residential blocks include a mix of accommodation, from townhouses to 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. The scheme is supported by a central management suite and communal facilities for residents including a gym and various landscaped external spaces.
