Waterfront development opens doors to residents

THE next phase of residential development at Princes Dock, part of Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters, has opened its doors to residents, as property company Redwing nears completion of its £21 million residential development, Plaza 1821.

Plaza 1821 is named after the year Princes Dock opened and is a private rental sector (PRS) development, undertaken by Peel L&P.

The development is one of three additional planned residential developments at Princes Dock – part of the Liverpool Waters £5bn regeneration scheme which will encompass five new neighbourhoods – alongside Moda Living’s The Lexington, which is currently well underway, and Your Housing Group’s Patagonia Place, for which a planning application has recently been submitted.

Darran Lawless, development director at Liverpool Waters part of Peel L&P, said: “It’s fantastic that the team at Redwing has been able to ensure residents are able to move into these brilliant apartments with incredible views of Liverpool’s waterfront. It’s a real milestone for people to begin moving in to these amazing homes at Princes Dock, demonstrating the significant progress happening across the wider Liverpool Waters scheme.

“We look forward to seeing this part of Princes Dock and the wider scheme progress even further over the coming months and years, helping us to create homes, jobs and a new community, breathing life back into our historic docklands.”

The development is managed by Redwing and built by contractors Vermont Construction Group.

As it continues to progress, Liverpool Waters will transform 60 hectares of historic docklands and is the biggest single regeneration project in the history of Liverpool.

In total, the development will offer 2,000,000 sq.m of floorspace which will include 9,000 residential homes, 315,000 sq.m. of business space and 53,000 sq.m. of hotel and conference facilities.
The waterfront project will also be the home to a new Cruise liner terminal and hotel as well as a new Isle of Man ferry terminal which is currently under construction as well as the proposed location of the new Everton FC stadium.
