A troubled north-west developer’s problems deepened this week after another of its residential sites in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle area was placed into receivership.
Park Lane (L1), a company owned by developers Roger Darwin, Stephen Ives and Anthony Robson, was set up to develop a 25-storey tower on the ‘Greenberg’ site near Albert Dock in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle area.
The site so called because it was home to glass manufacturer Greenberg before it relocated was bought by the developers with debt provided by Lloyds TSB.
The site was put into receivership earlier this month and GVA Grimley has now been appointed to manage the land and handle its disposal.
It is the latest residential scheme by Darwin, Robson and Ives – a former Tory tax adviser who was struck off the accountants register in 2004 to hit the dust.
The next-door L1 scheme, which was to be developed by a separate company, Windsor Developments (Liverpool), is also in administration.
And Park Lane’s plans for the Beers site across the road, which does not yet have planning consent, are also unlikely to go ahead at present.
All parties declined to comment.
