A prestigious residential apartment development is to be built on the site of the old Herculaneum Dock, a prime riverside location owned by Ascot Property Group.

Ideally situated on the banks of the River Mersey, with beautiful views of the Marina, Herculaneum Quay currently has planning consent for 16 storeys. The development will consist of 101 one, two and three bedroom apartments with a coffee shop and a number of other exclusive amenities on site. Office space will also be available on the lower floors.

With the development of this striking addition to the waterfront already secured, a further planning application is now being considered, proposing an additional 10 storeys. If granted, the residential accommodation will be increased and a penthouse floor added.

Herculaneum Quay is to provide the ultimate in luxurious city living. Stunning views of the river will be maximised by offering a private terrace and floor-to-ceiling windows as standard with every apartment. A residents only gym, complete with jacuzzi, swimming pool and floor-to-ceiling windows displaying the impressive vista will provide ‘the wow factor’. The on-site coffee lounge will transition seamlessly from inside to out, with a seated area built directly on the River Walks. Below ground, plans for a 3 storey subterranean car park mean all residents will have the option to purchase their own secure space.

Plans by Liverpool firm KDP Architects have been designed to enable residents of Herculaneum Quay to feel a connection to the site’s maritime heritage, as well as to the river on their doorstep.

Stuart Duffy, Partner at KDP Architects said:

“This contemporary development has curves in all the right places. Two arcs have been fused together to create a stunning living environment. It has been cleverly designed to provide a terrace in every apartment maximising space and light. All residents can enjoy the spectacular moods of the River Mersey, the organic formation of the Wirral coastline, the majesty of the Welsh mountains and the surrounding urban landscape.”

Ascot Property Group has entered into a joint venture with West Lancashire development company, Primesite Development. Primesite is to begin development of the tower in the coming months and will go on to sell completed units. Apartment prices will range from £100,000 to £175,000 with discounts available for cash buyers.
