The public have been given a glimpse of how Liverpool’s former Reece’s Ballroom will look inside following its transformation.
Computer generated images (CGI) of the new apartments at the site have been released, having previously only been seen by property investors.
The upper floors of the city centre building, now known as the Parker Street Residences, once provided the venue for the wedding reception when Beatles legend John Lennon married Cynthia.
Caro Developments is turning the site, which has retail space on the ground floor, into studio and one-bedroom apartments and all of the units have been sold ahead of the project being completed.
Prior to work getting underway on the scheme the developer revealed images of how the empty former venue looked inside, with some items such as banners and cloakroom tickets still in place from the Reece’s Ballroom days.
Contractor Nobles Construction is currently working to strengthen the steel framework of the building to make way for an additional two floors.
Lee Darwen, operations director at Caro Developments, says: “These CGIs really put into perspective the vision that we have for the building.
“Falconer Chester Hall has designed a clean, open plan concept for the apartments and we believe the strength of the images highly contributed to the sales of the units.
“Looking at photographs of the ballroom before work began shows the true change that is taking place in to create the Parker Street Residences.”
