St. James Street
Development of 44 apartments & 499m² of commercial space.
St. James Street is a new-build mixed-use development in the Baltic Triangle district of Liverpool city centre. The project delivers 44 one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, together with 499m² of commercial space and new public spaces.
Detailed applications for planning permission were submitted to Liverpool City Council in October 2018 following an extensive pre-application consultation process.
The design responds to a previously approved scheme on the adjacent site, providing a dignified termination to the urban block on the principal thoroughfare of St. James Street. Carefully considered massing and materiality respond to the maritime and industrial heritage of the Baltic Triangle. The proposed development would make a genuinely positive contribution to the local area; constructed to a high specification and bringing back into use a vacant site, which in turn increases the sense of movement and community within the area.
The neighbouring Church of St. Vincent-de-Paul is a heritage asset which sits both at the heart of the local area and the design of this scheme. Many of the apartments overlook the church and the proposed corner building not only provides a public space from which to enjoy views of the church, it is also designed to be smaller and considerate of its historic neighbour.
