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.

The building is well planned

I have lived in this place for 2 years, and the best aspect of this property is the location. It is perfectly located in a not very busy part of town, that is easily walkable to the docks, Liverpool one and the city center. Another incredible bonus is the reception staff who are always extremely friendly and helpful. I can only recommend it as I have to many of my friends.

Please review your development:

The building is well planned, overall the design is new, and the furniture is modern. The onsite gym is not the biggest but is useful for quick workouts. Parking may be a bit tight, but space is always available and you can ensure that your car is safe if you have to travel.

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

The building is naturally really warm on the inside, and use of the heaters has been very minimal over the past 2 years.

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

Issues, when raised through the app, are quickly resolved

Good location, but that’s about it

Review Date Jun 2022

Really good location, less than 10 minute walk into the city center for shopping, really good selection of restaurants and unique shops

Please review your development:

Again the apartments are in situated between the Baltic triangle and city center so in a really good area for shopping and dining out. The apartments themselves have been poorly designed, thin walls, and overall seem still unfinished and unpolished, property management is almost non existent.

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

The state of the ongoing construction work

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

Yes, does take a while for thing to be seen to unless it’s an emergency.

the interior of the apartments are still stunning

Review Date Jun 2022

The range of shops and bars is wide. There are more than 2 local supermarket shops within a 5-10 minute walk for groceries. There are so many restaurants close by – not to mention the wide range you have to choose from.

Please review your development:

The design of the building is a little stranger than I have seen before but it works well and the interior of the apartments are still stunning. The facilities are great, clean area for lobby and tidy Bin Unit. Space for bikes if you didn’t want them outside or inside your apartment. Building management are lovely and always helpful. Property management can be hard to get a call back from if you need one, but they are lovely people and do help you.

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

I wish I had know that the furniture we should have had on arrival was the same we were told about when viewing. It wouldn’t have changed my mind on moving in but it was a bit of a let down when we did move in.

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

Anything we have needed repairing or fixing we have been sorted asap.

Perfect for doctors working in NW hospitals

Review Date Jun 2022

Walking distance to town but close enough to the river to have lovely views and fresh air. On site gym is ideal to save money !

Please review your development:

Extremely comfortable and convenient. All properties have their own washing machine/dishwasher that always works to excellent standard and Terry (maintainance) is on hand to help with any problems and has been very helpful.
Easy commute to all major NW hospitals.

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

Only thing is it get a smart meter and keep an eye on bills as heaters are electric.

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

Very well – all problems fixed quickly and no major issues
