Tim Groom wins planning for pair of Liverpool PRS schemes

  • Comment

Tim Groom Architects has won approval for a pair of private rented sector (PRS) housing schemes in Liverpool for property developer Iliad Group

According to the burgeoning Manchester-based practice, the design for the 156-home New Bird Street development echoes the ’historical industrial use of the [surrounding] Baltic Triangle area’.

Meanwhile the brick-clad, 120-flat St Michaels II scheme will become the second phase of the St Michaels development and, the firm claims, will ’act as an opening link from Bold Street, through the Ropewalks and ultimately to the Baltic Triangle and historic waterfront’.

Practice founder Tim Groom said: ‘The two schemes follow previous projects delivered by us for Iliad Group in the Baltic Triangle area.

‘We’ve drawn upon the warehouse typography found within The Baltic Triangle, and careful consideration has been given to the materiality of each scheme, with particular attention being paid to detailed design and refined craftsmanship, building on the ethos of Iliad Group to provide high-quality developments.’

Work is expected to start on both schemes this autumn.
