Liverpool’s Strand Plaza set for £26m conversion

Liverpool’s Strand Plaza, a former Ministry of Defence building, is set to be converted into a luxury residential development.

Developer Primesite has picked local contractor Impel Construction to deliver the project, which has a gross development value of £26m.

The former MoD office building, which affords views of the city’s Liver and Cunard buildings, is set to be stripped out and fitted out as 130 luxury apartments, while the facade will also be refurbished.

The plot is believed to be among the last major development opportunities on The Strand in Liverpool, which forms part of the city’s Unesco World Heritage waterfront.

Primesite purchased the building in January this year, and asbestos removal is due to complete in April.

The scheme, which has been designed by architects Brock Carmichael, is due to complete in March 2018.
The developer is currently building 800 units in Liverpool city centre, including the £10.9m Herculaneum Quay development designed by Edge Architects.

Strand Plaza is the latest in a string of major residential projects in the city to proceed so far this year.
