The next phase of the 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 £21m residential development, Plaza 1821. The development is managed by Redwing and built by contractors Vermont Construction Group.
Plaza 1821 is named after the year the Princes Dock opened. It consists of 105 Build to Rent homes – a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments along with dedicated amenity space on the ground floor. The scheme is just a stone’s throw away from the Three Graces – the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building – that gives the city its iconic waterfront.
The development is one of three additional planned residential developments at Princes Dock – part of the Liverpool Waters £5bn regeneration scheme. It 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.
“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 into 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.”Darran Lawless, Development Director, Liverpool Waters – part of Peel L&P
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 floor space – which includes 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 home to a new cruise liner terminal and hotel, and a new Isle of Man ferry terminal which is currently under construction. It’s also the proposed location of the new Everton FC stadium.
“At Redwing we work with a range of partners to provide high quality residential developments where people and communities thrive. Plaza 1821 is one of a number of new developments that we will bring to our customers in the near future.
“We are delighted to be part of the Liverpool Waters regeneration project with Plaza 1821, which offers 105 stunning apartments for private rent. Each with outdoor space and spectacular views as well as a range of amenities including, parking, secure bike storage, resident’s lounge and concierge. We will also be announcing an exciting restaurant partner for our ground floor space soon.”Fiona Coventry, Executive Director of Property, Redwing
