Proposals for 28 large, luxury residential apartments and a first of its kind 11,500 sq ft rooftop terrace in St Helens have been submitted for planning permission by developer, Luxor Group.
Barrow House, which is located on the corner of Claughton Street and Barrow Street, was purchased by Luxor Group towards the end of 2018 and details of its transformation into Nicholson Plaza and Nicholson Place have now been announced.
The latest project, adjacent to the recently-completed Nicholson House development, will spearhead the urban-led regeneration of St Helens’ newest neighbourhood, nestled in the professional quarter of the town centre.
Phase A of this ambitious project will be known as Nicholson Plaza.
It will comprise 12 modern one-bedroom apartments, with the largest apartment being a sizeable 68 sq m. This is set to be completed by Summer 2019.
Phase B will be known as Nicholson Place.
This will be made up of 14 one-bedroom apartments and two spacious two-bedroom apartments, which is earmarked for completion at the beginning of 2020. A selection of the apartments in this phase will benefit from floor to ceiling windows.
Topping off this landmark development, Luxor Group has detailed plans for a private rooftop terrace, a first of its kind for the borough.
Offering residents 11,500 sq ft of outdoor space to enjoy with unobstructed panoramic views, it will boast landscaped gardens and relaxing seating areas for tenants of both Nicholson Plaza and Nicholson Place.
The 34,500 sq ft former office building also includes basement and ground floor commercial space which is fully let by local businesses MD Productions, The Dean Champagne Bar and Restaurant and Laguna Tanning.
