Regneration specialist St. Modwen has submitted a planning application for the refurbishment of the Glenn Buildings North, the latest phase of investment in Crosby Village Centre.

The proposals will bring forward three retail units with new shop fronts within the existing building on Moor Lane, designed to meet the needs of modern retailers, and will see the popular Blues Bar retained and the empty upper floor refurbished.

The plans will compliment St. Modwen’s proposal for the Glenn Buildings South, located on the opposite side of Moor Lane, which is currently being determined by Sefton Council.

David Nuttall, Development Manager at St. Modwen, said: “We have received considerable support for our plans for the Glenn Buildings South and we are confident that the redevelopment of these popular and attractive buildings is right for Crosby.

“We are pleased to announce this latest planning application, which will modernise, restore and preserve the Glenn Buildings North, an equally important part of Crosby Village Centre. This will provide further, fit for purpose accommodation to help attract new occupiers and allow successful businesses to expand in the Village Centre.”

St. Modwen acquired the Glenn Buildings during 2016, a feature on the high street in Crosby for more than 84 years, revealing its plans soon after and secured Homes Bargains within the village.
