Liverpool Neighbourhoods

The Georgian Quarter is seen as a cultural have. It has two cathedrals and many hidden gems, including the Everyman Theatre, The Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and countless bars and bistros. Residents can enjoy living in Georgian architecture. Similarly, or in a new development in one of Liverpool’s most stylish neighbourhoods. One residential development to rent in Liverpool is The Cargo Building. 

“City centre location is pretty nice. Its super safe as its right in the middle of town. Tescos is onsite which is great. There is nothing that I dislike about the area.” – Luke, Verified Resident of The Cargo Building

The Baltic Triangle has been named as one of the hippest places in the UK and The Cargo Building has received some of the highest ratings for a development on HomeViews. With independent bars, exhibition spaces and music venues it is not your average city centre. Another one of the best developments to live in Liverpool is Brunswick Park. The development is next to the station with direct links into central Liverpool.

“Good location, spacious, well kept” – Katie, Verified Resident of Brunswick Park.

Near to Woolton is Aigburth, an affordable, yet upmarket area. Located on the river Mersey are a number of large Victorian town houses as well as new developments to buy or rent in Liverpool with views of Sefton Park.

“Duke street is very close to everywhere but can get loud on the weekend.” – Anon, Verified Resident of Hudson Gardens

Moreover, Ropewalks is a hive of activity, and is popular amongst students and young professionals. Named after the rope making factories it is now home to independent shops, record shops, new eateries and clubs. Similarly, it is also home to some new developments such as Elysian Fields and Hudson Gardens.

Home in the Heart of the City!

A brilliant location, in the heart of the city centre and just a few minutes walk from Albert Dock, Liverpool One and the business district. 2 minutes walk from both the Bus Station and James St Station so it’s quick and easy to get anywhere you need to be. Despite the central location the development itself is quiet, you would have no idea you were in the heart of the city centre once inside your apartment.

Please review your development:

This development is a brilliant place to live, work and play. The roof terrace has panoramic views over the city, and the resident’s lounge & coworking space has one of the best views of the waterfront you’ll experience. Apartments are clean, modern and very well maintained, and communal spaces are always neat and tidy. However what really makes this development special is the people who work here – Lorryn and the team are incredibly friendly, always on hand to help, and keen to address any issues or queries immediately.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Pets are welcome in this development – which means you will make a lot of furry friends along the way!

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Quickly and efficiently, and there’s an onsite maintenance team too.

Good: Very close to the town and Albert Dock. Nice view around the building. Transportation is convenient.
Bad: Nothing specific.

Please review your development:

The overall design is great, however, some of the public areas such as the waiting area outside the life can be better decorated.
I was living in a one-bedroom apartment: the room and furniture included were excellent and in good condition. I was on 13/F, so there were no noise problems at night for me.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Nothing really. The viewing pretty much provided me with everything I would like to know before signing the contract.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

I must highlight that the resident team here was amazing. They were always kind and responsive to my questions and requests during my stay. Special thanks to Tom for helping me out all the time!

Design is poor

Review Date Feb 2024

Local amenities are good. There is a high turnover ofneighbours, so not a good community feel. Problem with fly tipping and placefirst not maintaining communal areas.

Please review your development:

Design is poor. Build and fixtures and fittings are cheap. Property management is non existent. In my view there are so many problems that staff can’t keep on top of them. External contractors they use for repairs seem to have little interest in doing a good job.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

That the vermin problem would be ignored. That construction build would be so disruptive

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Yes but they took 2 years to satisfactorily fix a leak and over a year to replace a broken hob

Perfect location, right in the city center, near everything you would ever want to be, and in the nicest part of town

Please review your development:

The modern design is very warm and inviting, apartments are very cozy, facilities like gym and launderette in the same building is very convient, most outstanding of all though is the staff, friendly, reliable and extremely helpful, especially the concierge.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Good to know that the washing/drying can all be done/monitored through an app

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

When accidentally locked out, staff response was extremely fast and efficient, even on a weekend
