Mersey Property Company submits planning application for major mixed use scheme 

The centrepiece of this development is an elegant 135 bedroom hotel and a residential tower with 183 apartments extending to 36 storeys high designed by RMJM. The development also accommodates offices, mixed commercial uses and car parking for over 330 vehicles. At the heart of the grand design is a semi-enclosed plaza with cafes and seating areas, enjoying views over the dock basin. Roger Whiteman, of RMJM, said: “The building has been carefully modelled to respect prominent views to landmark buildings such as ‘the Three Graces’. The development relates well to the developing cluster of taller buildings at this important northern gateway to the City Centre. The building will be built using a varied palette of materials, which will be a clean and modern interpretation of the cities industrial heritage. Liverpool will be the European Capital of Culture in 2008.
