New Industrial Inspired Mid-rise For Liverpool

70-90 Pall Mall is a newly proposed mid-rise mixed use scheme for Liverpool on what is one of the key routes through the central business district of the city.

Presently much of the western side of Pall Mall consists of car parks, with vacant and under utilised sites on the eastern side. Given the proximity of the area to the city centre and Moorfields Station, it's a prime place for redevelopment as this new project from Blok Architects recognises.

Led by a 19 floor 54 metre tall residential tower, the project will have 366 new homes continuing the trend of city living that has been underway in Liverpool since the turn of the Millennium. Of these, there will be 38 studios, 69 one bedroom flats, 190 two bedroom flats, and 39 live/work apartments. 1,050 square metres of new office space is also included along with 450 square metres of ground floor retail and to replace the loss of existing parking on the site will be a new 518 space multi-storey car park on the back of the scheme. One unusual addition is a helicopter landing pad on the roof.

The external design of the buildings represents the former industrials uses in the area with the architect expecting to use Cor-Ten steel on the front of the tower element and dark profiled metal cladding on the lower rise parts.

On the fourth floor will be a large roof garden, although access to this has yet to be set in stone. It will however be public and have a walkway running through it. The exact make up of this green space has yet to be decided but it could even be allotments.

With a planning application filed, the scheme is presently being considered by Liverpool City Council.
