Plans submitted for Liverpool’s largest single housing development

Plans for a £250 million triple tower complex dubbed the city’s single largest housing development have been presented to Liverpool City Council.

Developer Elliot Group has submitted its proposals for the Infinity scheme on the corner of Leeds Street and Pall Mall, which will reach 436ft above sea level at its highest point.

Infinity’s three towers will range between 27, 33 and 39 storeys and promise to offer views across Liverpool Bay to Snowdonia and beyond if planning permission is granted.

The completed development would include 1,002 apartments, a triple-height luxury spa, gym and pool and more than 10,000 sq ft of commercial space.

The scheme’s architects Falconer Chester Hall have confirmed that the plans have “evolved” since the original blueprint for the building was drawn up earlier this year.

Managing director Adam Hall, says: “We’ve tested everything from sight lines to height, scale and massing, as well as elevational treatments, layouts and the mix of units. The result is a cracking scheme that will help draw the city centre northwards and make an important contribution to Liverpool’s changing skyline.

“The design has evolved so that each block is now wrapped in two shimmering glazed skins that represent the sun reflecting off the undulating river.

“The blocks step up in height towards the business district and extend out dramatically over a podium with sculptured concrete columns. The scheme forms a strong marker towards the Pier Head and the cruise terminal and will be a gateway into the city.”

Tower A will stand at 39 storeys and host 416 homes, Tower B at 33 storeys with 326 homes and Tower C at 27 storeys and 260 homes – all three will feature a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom apartments as well as studio flats.

Each structure will also include concierge services, private lounges, dining rooms, cinema and meeting spaces as well as a private garden level set at 7 meters above ground with views of the River Mersey.
