project overview

Having stood as a vacant eyesore for many years, Zerum were instructed to secure planning consent for a 6-8 storey building containing 77 residential units with two ground floor units on this prominent site in the heart of the City Centre.

Based on two major thoroughfares of Leece Street and Renshaw Street, the mixed use scheme offers to provide much needed studio accommodation within the Liverpool City Centre, helping to revitalise the exciting up-and-coming Oldham Street area.

At the heart of the planning application was the challenge set not only by the schemes placement in the World Heritage Site Buffer Zone, but also its location adjacent to the iconic bombed out Church of St Luke’s.

This meant establishing a relationship with Historic England in order to create an acceptable scheme that would attract significant regeneration and investment in the site and surrounding area.

The scheme is one of many that Zerum have acted upon within Liverpool City Centre, and the second within the Oldham Street district, alongside the proposed redevelopment of Renshaw Hall.
