Herculaneum Quay is a 17-storey project that is set to revolutionise the Liverpool skyline. Despite hurdles with its development in the last few years, this building and its construction is currently underway as of May 2019 when investors took over the stalled construction. The original developer who started the Liverpool development entered into administration during 2018 which is when they stopped all building work. Surprisingly, the building is largely structurally complete, but it will still take around 12 to 15 months to finalise the rest of the work.
The building, which is a mixture of 1, 2- and 3-bedroom luxury apartments is a new style of designer apartments, a trend that is currently flooding Liverpool and the rest of the country. Herculaneum Quay is an impressive building which sits on the waterfront of what was once the Herculaneum Dock, part of Liverpool’s maritime history. When the development was first announced by its developer to investors and buyers, it was an interesting and highly anticipated construction that had everyone excited but because of unfortunate circumstances, people seemed to lose hope that this project wouldn’t get finished. However, this changed to good news when investors decided to put more money into the project in order for it to be finished.
The development features world-class views of the River Mersey and the organic formation of the Wirral Coastline. A unique selling point for this particular building has to be its contemporary design. Each apartment features a beautiful terrace and stunning living environment too. Plus, the leisure facilities that will be implemented when construction is complete, are one of the kind. Facilities include; a rooftop garden, a large indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi, and communal areas to socialise with other residents in the building.
Within walking distance to the Herculaneum Quay development is the historic Royal Albert Dock which is a popular tourist attraction for visitors to the city but also a key part of Liverpool’s history. The Herculaneum Dock, of which the building currently sits on, was officially opened in 1866 and operated until 1972. The dock closed for a short period during this time due to required repairs and upgrades, however, it still remains an active storyteller for the city. Since the development isn’t too far out of the city, there are a number of small retail and commercial operations that residents will be able to utilise and make the most of after this building is fully tenanted.
With the current development looking close to the finish line, Walton Flooring Contractors are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a contract to supply and fit flooring for the Herculaneum Quay development. It’s an exciting time to be a part of this huge project which is long overdue for the city of Liverpool.
