Building homes and building social impact Plaza 1821 a place to live, work and thrive

Our ambition to enter the private rental sector with a new development in Liverpool’s historic Princess Dock, came to fruition through ‘Plaza 1821’.

The scheme has created great quality housing in a superb location and contributed to the regeneration of acres of disused docklands, but more importantly - it's brought skills, jobs and a legacy training programme that will support the wider economy in a post-pandemic era.

Plaza 1821, named after the year Princess Dock opened, is a £21 million residential development. It forms part of Peel L&P's £5 billion Liverpool Waters scheme which is designed to completely transform the city’s northern docks over the next 30 years. The vision for Liverpool Waters is to create a world-class, mixed-use waterfront that will bring Liverpool’s historic docks back to life.

Plaza 1821 was one of the first developments on the waterfront to be completed during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our subsidiary Redwing, which specialises in property management, sales and lets, successfully and let and moved in tenants to all 105 apartments during the height of the pandemic.

Plaza 1821 offers a host of attractive benefits, including Wi-Fi, concierge service, app-based door entry (tenants needn't worry about forgetting their keys!). The building also offers a ground floor residents’ lounge and co-working space with waterfront views for those customers working from home.

Also located on the ground floor of the development is Moose Coffee. A central part of our decision-making process on this commercial partnership, was finding a local independent business, which shared our values and can work with us to achieve our mission to regenerate places and create opportunities for people. Moose Coffee at Plaza 1821 is open to the public as well as residents. The restaurant is infamous locally for its Canadian menu and great coffee – which is helping to sustain (literally!) visitors to the area, helping to make Princess Dock a destination for visitors as well as a place to live and work.

As part of the Plaza 1821 development, Moose commercial premises have been specially designed to include training kitchens. In collaboration with our training provider, The Learning Foundry, we will develop hospitality training programmes. Students will be able to learn in a live setting and get set up to achieve culinary careers that enable them to reach their full potential. The programme will be about encouraging people to see hospitality as a career rather than a job and will also help to address the current skills shortage that both the hospitality and tourism sectors are facing.

At Regenda, our goal is to make sure every project we are part of results in a positive social impact. Plaza 1821 in its own right is a great development, and we are very proud to be part of the regeneration of Liverpool Waters. However, accompanied by great partners and staff who share the same vision for creating opportunities for people and places to thrive – we have created something much more special, a platform for change that so many people can benefit from.

Building homes and social impact

The Regenda Group is made up of various organisations, each doing very different things, but all with the same core purpose – to regenerate place and create opportunities for people.

Our construction and maintenance company M&Y achieve this by making a commitment to deliver positive social impact in all the communities they work in and engaging staff, suppliers, and clients along the way to do the same!

To date they have delivered £500,000 in social value projects, helping to make a difference to people, place, and planet. An example of this approach is through the collaboration with key partners to improve aspirations with primary school children, which is key to improving attainment in communities.

On securing a contract to develop 17 affordable family homes with Wigan Council, St Pauls C of E Primary school was selected to run a ‘Raising Aspirations’ programme. The 12 month programme delivered through teachers via Positive Footprints charity, helps pupils to build their self-belief and resilience, and recognise how their qualities could be used in the workplace.

In the current post pandemic climate, where many children have faced challenges in terms of their education and mental health, this programme will help rewind some of that negative impact and provide the children with long lasting life skills that will enable them to achieve in whatever direction, they choose to go in.

Headteacher at St Paul's C of E Primary School said: “It is the mission of primary schools to prepare children not only for their next stage of education but for life.  The aim of Positive Footprints is to open the children’s minds to the different careers available to them in order to raise their aspirations.  Raising aspirations is part of our Core Curriculum purpose so the Positive Footprints programme is an excellent enhancement to our curriculum and will serve as a vehicle to boost ambition. “
