New leisure space planned for Liverpools™ Ropewalks district
Monday 15 May 2017
A derelict piece of land on Liverpool’s Wood Street could make way for a new food and drink establishment as part a five-storey mixed-use development.
If given the go-ahead, the new building would be led by four self-contained apartments with a leisure unit on the ground floor.
A planning document submitted to Liverpool City Council by city-based NS Architects, which has been working on the design, says the development will look to add to the area’s “multitude of coffee shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs”, whilst providing “much needed high quality young person accommodation”.
The application adds that the development will be in keeping with surrounding buildings and will “introduce yet another contemporary architectural element” to the city centre’s Ropewalks district.
The development would sit at the top of Wood Street opposite former nightspot the Cabin Club, which is also currently being transformed into a mixed-use apartment and restaurant complex. It is set to feature ‘Electric’, a new eatery from the team behind Liverpool’s Salt House Tapas, Hanover Street Social and Bacaro venues.
