Our eleventh project for Belong features quayside retirement living as part of the Wirral Waters regeneration masterplan by Peel.

Sited in a prominent location on the waterfront our seven-storey building, with architectural language respecting of the industrial heritage of the area, maximises views across the east float and toward Liverpool.

Positively integrating with the masterplan design, the building has direct access into the village core from the boardwalk at the waters edge. This coupled with the active frontage created by Belong’s publicly accessible facilities, including bistro, hair salon, spa, gym and venue, creates a strong link to the public realm at street level.

All households set on upper floors will have direct access from the living spaces to private external landscaped terraces, designed with sensory gardens, pathways and external seating protected from the more exposed waterfront location.

On the upper floors and accessed through the village are 34 apartments, a combination of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments with open plan living areas and external balcony/terraces.
