Deeside based developers Anwyl Construction have been given the green light for a £60 million eco-friendly apartment complex which they say will help transform Liverpool into a 21st century city.

The City Council approved plans today for the luxury apartment complex on a derelict site on Pall Mall in the heart of Liverpool’s business district.

The complex will provide 336 luxury apartments and has been designed by award-winning Liverpool-based architects Falconer Chester Hall.

It is the second major project in the city for Flintshire-based Anwyl who in October were given the go-ahead for a £45 million student accommodation development in Norton Street, Liverpool, on the site of the former National Express coach station.

Anwyl, a family firm whose headquarters are at St David’s Park, Ewloe, hope to announce the name of the main contractor for the development soon.

Anwyl Construction Director Tom Anwyl said:

We are pleased to be a part of the redevelopment and regeneration that is taking place in Liverpool, a World Heritage site, as it transforms itself into a 21st century city.

It is very exciting to be a part of that both at Pall Mall, in the heart of the business district, and at Norton Street and we have worked closely with our architects to ensure that the project complements the existing buildings there.

The Anwyl Group has a reputation for high quality and thoughtful building and we are committed to ensuring that wherever possible we use local sub-contractors and source our materials through local supply chains and this is a policy we will continue in Liverpool.

The recommendation by the City Council’s interim head of planning said the scheme would: “add visual interest without being overly dominant, and relate well to the City’s northern cluster of tall buildings, whilst engaging at a human scale.”

It added: “The active ground floor frontages and areas of landscaping which will be visible from the street will further add visual interest.

The Pall Mall development will include a mix of studio flats and one, two and three-bedroom apartments with retail and office space on the ground floor and a private garden terrace on the first floor.

The eco-friendly scheme includes green roofs which will collect rainwater to be used inside the building, solar panels, and modern floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise light and cut energy bills.
