Peel Land & Property now has the go-ahead to build Plaza 1821 for the Regenda Group and Hive City Docks for Your Housing Group at Princes Dock, one of the five neighbourhoods at Liverpool Waters.

Moda Living and Apache Capital already have planning permission to build Lexington Liverpool, a 34-storey, £80m PRS tower with 304 flats at Princes Dock. [See previous report here.] Under the plans, Plaza 1821 and Hive City Docks will eventually stand alongside this.

Plaza 1821

Plaza 1821 is a £21m residential development for the private rental sector (PRS) with 105 one- and two-bedroom apartments. Plaza 1821, named after the year Princes Dock opened, will be managed by Redwing Living, a subsidiary of the Regenda Group.

Neil Baumber, development director for residential at Peel Land &Property, said: “Plaza 1821 will be a high-quality development with spectacular views of the River Mersey and the surrounding waterfront. The focus now is on getting ready for the building works and ensuring we are on site as soon as possible.”

Martin Davies, director of development at the Regenda Group, added: “We are delighted that planning permission has been granted for Plaza 1821. This landmark project for Regenda is our biggest ever single investment and an integral part of our ambitious strategy for the Liverpool City Region.”
