Plans for waterfront homes on site of popular restaurant

Proposals for new waterfront homes on the edge of Liverpool city centre have been submitted to the council.

Plans for the 14 storey tower block, which would house 120 apartments, were proposed by Waterloo Tower Ltd for an area of the waterfront next to Waterloo Dock on Waterloo Road.

The plans would see the demolition of a three storey building that houses Greek restaurant Bacchus Taverna.

If approved it will become the latest in a series of high rise buildings approved in the area just to the north of the city centre, with a series of developments for other towers on nearby Leeds Street and the roads surrounding it having also received planning permission.

A report submitted with the application says the design for the tower, originally designed to be 40 storeys tall and include a hotel ,was scaled back significantly after plans were submitted in 2018.

The report says: "The initial scheme proposed to stand at 40 storeys tall in height – to make a prominent feature to the waterfront edge. It was to be fitting with the surrounding major developments with a minimal materiality palette of glass and metal modern features.
