Developer Elliot Group has secured planning permission for its £250m ‘triple towers’ residential project on the northern edge of Liverpool’s business district

The tallest building on the Infinity scheme will be 436ft.

Elliott Group is understood to have drawn-up a shortlist of three potential main contractors after the scheme was granted permission at a meeting of the city council’s planning committee on Tuesday morning.

Three towers – ranging in height from 27, 33 and 39 storeys – will be built on a site on the corner of Leeds Street and Pall Mall.

The £250m development is the largest single housing project in Liverpool and will offer 1,002 apartments, plus a triple-height luxury spa, gym and pool and more than 10,000 sq ft of commercial space.

Adam Hall of architects Falconer Chester Hall said,: “This is Liverpool reaching for the sky, and with a quality that befits such an ambitious place.”

Each of the blocks will be wrapped in two shimmering glazed skins that represent the sun reflecting off the undulating river.

The blocks will step up in height towards the business district immediately to the south and extend out dramatically over a podium with sculptured concrete columns.

Elliot Lawless of Elliot Group said: “This is a proud moment for me and I’m grateful for the council backing me to develop such a prestigious scheme.

“They’ve seen our track record of delivery in recent years and know that when we promise performance and quality, that’s what will happen.

“So much is going on in the north end, with Everton’s new stadium, the Ten Streets initiative and a range of other high quality tower projects.

“We’ll have a dramatic cluster to greet our cruise passengers as they approach the Pier Head and the sense of them arriving somewhere confident and special will be palpable.

“With Liverpool considered a front-runner to host the Commonwealth Games the economy is making another step-change.

“This is important as it will keep us on a par with great cities like Manchester and Glasgow, who both hosted the games successfully.”

Work will start on site in the autumn, with a completion date of autumn 2019.  Zerum acted as planning advisor for the development.
