Legacie Developments’ said it hopes to build four tower blocks on open land off Greenland Street within the next three years after key previous opponents of the scheme, Baltic Triangle CIC, withdrew its objections.

Riverside councillor Steve Munby had warned the new buildings, which would be between eight and 18 floors, would "completely undermine the creative industries in the area" and be the "death knell for the Baltic Triangle”.

However, Liam Kelly, who headed up the Baltic Triangle CIC, which represented a number of businesses in the area, withdrew the concerns following discussions between both sides.

Business owner Tim Speed, who runs Elevator Studios close to the site, said the new flats would mean that more people would be able to actually live in the Baltic Triangle as opposed to just work there, something he said has been a stumbling block for the area so far.
