Your Housing Group’s Hive submits plans for £55 million build to rent development on Liverpool waterfront
A planning application has been submitted for a £55 million build to rent development at Princes Dock on the Liverpool waterfront.
The 31-storey apartment building, which will be marketed under Your Housing Group’s (YHG) private rented sector (PRS) brand Hive, will form part of Peel’s £5.5bn Liverpool Waters development.
Named Hive City Docks, the development will comprise 278 studios and one-, two- and three- bedroom apartments, offering river and city views, 24-hour concierge services and a premium rooftop restaurant and bistro facilities as well as a range of in-apartment technologies.
Yvonne Westhead-Fyles, project lead for Hive said: “Our iconic development will form a large part of the transformation of the Princes Dock waterfront, bringing much-needed facilities to the area. We have designed the building to meet the needs of today’s renters, in a city that is full of vibrancy and is leading the way with new and attractive rental propositions”.
The proposed tower is designed by Brock Carmichael Architects.
An outcome on the planning approval is anticipated to be announced in late spring 2017, with work expected to commence later this year, subject to planning consent.
