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 or in a new development in one of Liverpool’s most stylish neighbourhoods.

“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, 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. 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 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

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 as well as some new developments such as Elysian Fields and Hudson Gardens.

Good location but near train station so loud

Verified Resident

Trains loud, kids on street at night, rough area, stolen cars driving up and down. Not ideal if working out of city centre. Good location to be near town.

Please review your development:

Modern good location, loud, hot, bad furniture so took unfurnished. Management are bad, tapping noise in bathroom. Pipes are expanding when hot water comes through plumber said. Took 8 months and 2 weeks to complete job. Wanted to pay 10 a month then upped to 25 a month. No trust. Very rude management. Need to pay double rent 2 months plus bills. Fobs didn’t work when first came to move in. Fridge broken when first came in took a week to replace. Not been cleaned when first moved in. Only refuned half the shop.

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

Only get one parking space.

What is the best feature of your home:

Top floor with tall ceilings. It has an open plan so very spacious.

Great location

Verified Resident

Like. Central, close to transport and the centre. The bus stop is outside the door.
dislike. You can hear the neighbours, not very loud, and its not an issue. But i would prefer that not to happen.

Please review your development:

Tesco is outside. The gym is right here. The gym is 24/hours. A coffee shop is yet to come. On a low floor so the view isn’t great. But I have a bigger apartment. The maintenance team is great. I have hear of any issues with them. They are fast and efficient. They know me by name and make an issue. Doesn’t take long to get to work, even though i work is spoke. I have a flatmate, and we get along. Good value for money, you get good internet included and a gym membership. Big apartment, bigger than my previous place. Newer, bigger, more convenient that my previous place for the same price. They have a media room if you want a party but not in you’re flat, and it is free. There is a screen, kitchen, toilet in there too so its handy.

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

Im familiar with the area, but more about the apartment. The furnishing, so i didn’t go and buy a kettle, toaster, etc.

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

Really good. I only had one complaint ams they responded fast.
