    RWinvest Architecture Set to Change the Liverpool Cityscape

    Liverpool is a city brimming with fantastic buildings. From historic wonders to boundary-pushing new-builds, there’s something to see on every corner, and the Liverpool Architecture Festival was created to acknowledge the city’s wealth of architectural marvels. This year’s festival is currently ongoing and will span the whole month of June, celebrating and bringing attention to the local architectural environment.

    As a property investment company, we are passionate about architecture and the indelible impact a building can have on a city. In honour of the Liverpool Architecture Festival 2024, this article will look at our most exciting and cutting-edge projects that have already changed the Liverpool cityscape or are set to do so when they launch and enter the buy-to-let property market in the future.

    In order to shine a spotlight on the brilliant architects involved, we’re highlighting designs created by Falconer Chester Hall. RWinvest, in partnership with Legacie, has collaborated several times with these award-winning architecture practitioners, who match our high ambitions for innovative and sustainable developments with the potential to transform the face of  Merseyside’s buy-to-let property market. Let’s take a look at some of the incredible designs that Falconer Chester Hall has created.

      One of the salient elements of Liverpool’s distinctive architectural landscape is the harmonious blend of old and new.

      Similarly, RWinvest deals with both the cutting-edge world of ground-up developments, as well as the redevelopment of existing buildings. The architectural versatility of these developments is demonstrated through Heap’s Rice Mill. Heap’s Rice Mill is a Grade II listed property currently being transformed into a residential apartment complex to be known as The Mill.

      This former mill and warehouse is one of the Baltic Triangle district’s longest-standing original buildings, dating back to the late 1700s. The historic facade will become a ‘key focal point’ of the scheme, and the refurbished building will offer residents numerous luxurious modern trappings, such as a spa, pool, gym, rooftop terrace, and coffee shop. There will even be a museum space paying tribute to the rich history of The Mill.

      Falconer Chester Hall worked closely with English Heritage and local organisations to ensure that the sleek design of The Mill retained as many of the Victorian property’s original features as possible.

      Parliament Square Liverpool Courtyard Night

      Parliament Square

      A building’s location can go a long way in informing the sort of style and design that the architects and developers should aim for. For example, the Baltic Triangle is known for its off-beat and bohemian atmosphere. This culture and the area’s local collective of artists and independent business owners have led to Time Out naming the Baltic Triangle the ‘coolest neighbourhood’ in the UK. It’s the perfect backdrop for a development like Parliament Square, which champions community through its communal courtyard and public realm.

      When designing Parliament Square, creating a property that wouldn’t disrupt the area’s distinct character was important. For this reason, Falconer Chester Hall’s architects worked closely with community groups to create this innovative project, which will constitute the first tower to be built in the Baltic Triangle.

      Martin Haymes, Associate Director at Falconer Chester Hall, said: “The proposed development reflects the surrounding context of materials within the Baltic Triangle, continuing the regeneration of this historic area with a quality scheme that enhances the district’s reputation as a thriving creative and leisure hub.”

      The scheme consists of four blocks of differing heights, between eight and eighteen storeys, linked by a shared courtyard.

      The stunning architecture helped Parliament Square win the Residential High Rise Development Merseyside award at the International Property Awards 2021 and the Best Large New Home Development 2022 award at the YM Property Awards 2022.

      The Gateway

      Inspired by the skyscrapers of New York, The Gateway has already been recognised as a development that will change the face of Liverpool, according to Liverpool World.

      This innovative design will become the centrepiece of the Pumpfields regeneration area, just north of the city centre. RWinvest often targets regeneration districts for new projects, as they are known to be some of the best areas for buy-to-let due to capital growth potential and future demand. The striking architecture of The Gateway is set to help revitalise the whole area, which has been left underutilised for years.

      The development consists of four striking residential towers with podium garden decks between the blocks, providing residents with outdoor space and a connecting link between each tower. Depending on the apartment type, some residents will also enjoy private roof terraces with river and city views.
