Fantastic news today that the much-loved and fought-over Heaps Rice Mill on the edge of the Baltic Triangle is being redeveloped by Legacie Developments in partnership with international sales agent RWinvest who said that 80% of the development had already been snapped up by investors.

We would be very interested to see where those investors are coming from after the dreadful history of failed Liverpool schemes whose developers sought investors often in East-Asia who then lost all their investments. Cllr Maria Toolan, who lives nearby, will be thrilled with this news as more than anyone else she has battled to save the Rice Mill.

The plans include luxury apartments (is there any other type of apartment?!) and a hotel and they are also going to deliver a ‘museum’ which will be in the reception area of the historic building. Apparently building work has already started on the redevelopment as residents reported to Engage today that workers shipping-container offices had been seen on the site.

We couldn’t be more happy to report this new turn of events and will look forward to seeing the quality of the apartments, the sensitivity of the heritage refurbishment and the landscaping surrounding the building.
