Hodder + Partners reveals designs for Liverpool's tallest tower

  • Comment

Manchester-based Hodder + Partners has released images and plans of its scheme to build a 48-storey tower in Liverpool

If built, the tower in Old Hall Street, known as Ovatus 2, would be the tallest building in Liverpool and provide 540 flats.

It accompanies plans for Ovatus 1, a 27-storey tower containing 168 flats, which were submitted to Liverpool City Council in December

The site for both towers is within the buffer zone boundary of Liverpool’s World Heritage Site.

Hodder + Partners director Claire Hodder told the AJ that the towers would act as a ‘gateway’ to the city.

She said the towers would contribute to a ‘cluster formation’ in the area, which she described as a ‘major route’ into Liverpool, and said the two would be linked by a public space.

‘As you move past [the towers] you get a different view of them all the time because they are oval in shape,’ she said. ‘You get the elegance of the towers. It’s a real marker for this gateway site.’ 

Plans for Ovatus 2, which is backed by Prospect Capital and Wilcocks & Wilcocks, are expected to be submitted by summer this year. If approved, the earliest completion date for both towers is 2019.
