A planned multi-storey building featuring commercial space and more than 150 apartments in the Baltic Triangle has been signed off by Liverpool’s councillors.Hillmore Developments’ application to redevelop a 0.5-acre site (pictured) bounded by Greenland Street, New Bird Street and St James Street was passed by Liverpool City Council’s planning committee on Tuesday (8 March 2016).The proposal would involve the demolition of an existing one-storey commercial block and the construction of a building ranging from seven to 11 storeys high.The scheme would have 6,663 sq ft of ground-floor commercial space over four units to provide a mix of studio and workspace accommodation as well as residential space on the upper floors.It is envisaged that there would be eight studios, 68 one-bedroom apartments and 81 two-bedroom apartments.The Baltic Triangle and its historic warehouses formerly played a central role in supporting Liverpool’s shipping trade but in recent years the area has been reinvented as a hub for the city’s creative industries.
