Liverpool Love Lane development primed for planning approval

BDP has put forward plans for more than 500 homes in Liverpool’s Love Lane in a new development which will reuse a series of railway arches in the city centre.


The plans were submitted by BDP on behalf of the joint venture between Sourced Developments and Network Rail. The project will see 507 homes built alongside railway lines just north of the city centre and east of Bramley Moore Dock, where BDP is working on the delivery of the Everton stadium on Bramley Moore Dock.

Built across four individual buildings, the development includes 147 one-bed units, 330 two-beds and 30 three-bed homes designed in an industrial style, reminiscent of this area of Liverpool. Each building will deliver its own internal courtyard for social space, markets and events with building heights keeping to a maximum of 11 storeys.

Redundant railway arches and subterranean tunnels located on two of the plots would be repurposed to bring more than 10,000 sq ft of intriguing, eye catching commercial space to the new city centre destination. A 200-metre linear park also forms part of the joint venture’s vision for the site, creating space for walking and relaxing whilst ensuring the four separate buildings feel connected and coherent.


Mark Braund, architect director at BDP, said: “The vision for Love Lane is to create a new piece of Liverpool’s pedestrian circuit by reusing historic brick railway arches in the northern edge of the city core, using cafes, bars, restaurants, and other leisure uses to create a destination, all linked together by a linear park.  

“The heritage setting has informed the design of unique residential apartment buildings - picking up the railway and industrial warehouse uses of the adjacent docks and giving rise to high quality, dual aspect residential homes. It will be a wonderfully colourful and fantastic place for people to live and for people to visit, with a real sense of the city of Liverpool interwoven into the design.”
