  • Paddington Village live/learn facility

Green light expected for Liverpool International College plans

Plans for a multi-million pound ‘live-learn’ facility on the site of the former Archbishop Blanch School look set to be approved by Liverpool City Council.

The Liverpool International College development in the Paddington Village hub includes office and teaching space as well as student accommodation.

The scheme, which has been brought forward by applicant Kaplan Liverpool Limited, is recommended for approval at a council planning meeting next week (21 February).

According to the planning application, the residential element of the development will be housed in a 13-storey tower with academic elements arranged in a three-storey base building.

The two buildings will be linked by a central atrium space.

Paddington Village is a £1 billion expansion to the Knowledge Quarter which aims to create an estimated 10,000 highly skilled jobs in the city.

The project, which itself is a part of the area’s regeneration, also includes The Royal College of Physician’s (RCP) RCP North ‘Clinical Centre for Excellence’

If approved, work on the live/learn facility is due to start on site during mid-2017, with completion expected in January 2019.
