Kier Property and CTP have been granted planning permission for the construction of the Pall Mall mixed use development in Liverpool’s Commercial Business District, to be used primarily as office space.
The Pall Mall office development has been commissioned by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority at a cost of some £200M and was approved on account of the city centre’s apparent lack of Grade A office space.
The development will consist of 400,000sq ft of office space, a 281-bedroom hotel, associated retail and leisure amenities, a new large landscaped green space, 9,600sq ft of flexible ground floor accommodation, car parking, cycle spaces, and shower/changing facilities
The Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson stated: “The Pall Mall scheme is of huge importance to the development of our Commercial Business District, so I am delighted it is now been given planning approval and construction can get started.
“Liverpool city centre needs new Grade A office space to attract companies and highly skilled jobs so we can continue to grow our economy. I am greatly encouraged by the thinking behind the scheme’s lay out and delighted the emphasis is as much on the high quality of the place and dwell time as it is on the design of the buildings. We are looking at how we can develop the district over the next ten and 20 years and this scheme will act as a catalyst for the future aspirations for the area 2020 and beyond.”
Managing Director of the North for Kier Property, Tom Gilman added: “We are delighted to have secured consent for the scheme – the team have worked hard to develop a masterplan which will transform the CBD and pave the way for further development aligned with the Council’s SRF vision.
“Our proposals have been informed by an extensive consultation process over the last 3 years with a variety of stakeholders and local residents. Although at the early stages of the development, the scheme has attracted strong occupier interest for the office space and we look forward to progressing these discussions over the coming months.”
