Green light for LJMU to deliver £64m Royal Mail student conversion

LJMU Copperas Hill

A £64m conversion of the former Royal Mail Sorting office into student facilities for Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) has been approved by Liverpool City Council.

The student scheme will form part of one of the city’s flagship projects, Knowledge Quarter Liverpool (KQ), where more than £1bn of new developments are underway.

Situated adjacent to Liverpool Lime Street Station and on the site of a former postal sorting office which closed in 2010, the proposals will see Copperas Hill converted by LMJU into a student life building and sports building. Manchester based Barton Willmore submitted the planning application having been appointed by Faithful+Gould and working alongside Sheppard Robson, Cundall and WSP.
