There is a precedent for tall buildings situated on Plot A06. The Liverpool Waters Outline Consent previously allocated the plot to a 195m mixed use skyscraper called Shanghai Tower. Following this, Your Housing Group and Peel L&P obtained consent for Hive City Docks in 2018, a 97.5m development which was designed to sensitively work with the historic townscape of the City’s waterfront which received no objection from heritage bodies such as Historic England.
The proposed scheme seeks to work within the parameters of the 2018 consent, keeping to a similar height and quantum of development.
However, it looks to revisit the plot layout to make the development floor plate more efficient and deliverable in current market conditions.
