Plans for a new residential development within Liverpool’s Pumpfields Industrial Zone have been given unanimous approval. The Metalworks, a project by developer Pumpfields Regeneration Company, will comprise two interconnected apartment blocks designed to elegantly incorporate industrial materials, creating an aesthetic in-keeping with the area’s routes in the metal fabrication industry. 

Completion of The Metalworks first phase is anticipated for quarter four of 2018. The development will house 314 units, made up of one bedroomed apartments and two bedroomed duplex’s, supplying much needed city centre housing in an area where demand outstrips supply. Perfectly designed, by BLOK Architecture, for modern urban living, The Metalworks is elegant, efficient and stylish, as well as being well situated on Leeds Street, a key arterial route at the edge of Liverpool’s vibrant commercial district. The site is a short stroll from the city’s World Heritage waterfront location and the Liverpool ONE retail and entertainment complex. 

Pumpfields Regeneration Company is a development arm of BLOK Architecture. An incredibly experienced team with in-depth knowledge of the local residential and investor markets, they have been at the forefront of Liverpool’s residential development boom in recent years. 

Antonio Garcia of Pumpfields Regeneration Company and BLOK principle, said: 

“With The Metalworks we’ve designed an elegant, functional and ideally situated development that will make urban living a real pleasure. The local economy is in a continued period of growth, so there has never been a better time to invest, or live, in Liverpool city centre and we’re pleased to be working with an experienced, capable team to play our role in its expansion.  

“Pumpfields is the most exciting regeneration zone in the city and The Metalworks represents its flagship project. We’ve played on the use of metal throughout the detailing of the development, adding to the aesthetic of these bold, interconnected city blocks and providing a tip of the hat to the industrial heritage of the area.”
