The application plans for One Brunswick also reveal a pedestrian and cycle ‘green trail’ which travels around the roof of the building up to the top floor.
Rising from two to 16 storeys high, the development would include 478 apartments, private balconies and views across the Mersey.
Where will it be built?
The planning application states that the 2.4-acre development would be on the site of the infilled Toxteth Dock.
Located immediately south of Brunswick Dock, it would replace a car park.
What the One Brunswick plans include?
The application, from north west property developers and investors Carpenter Investments to Liverpool City Council, includes a mix of 1-bed, 2-bed and 3-bed units.
The landscaped green roof trail is a ‘defining feature of the development, creating a place to walk, take in the views, stroll and meet with friends and family’.
Plans include provision for a range of offices, leisure, retail and restaurant space.
The application claims that the development will bring ‘new skills and training to the area and has the significant potential to lift people from poverty and into work, and to allow the local community to help establish their own neighbourhood’.
Who are the developers?
Carpenter Investments have a range of developments across the city and more than £65 million of new buildings have been created in Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter.
