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.

It’s clear to see that there is much development going on in there area. So whilst it’s not as filled with amenities as it will be in the future, the area is still close to all you’d need.

Please review your development:

The main issue with the area is parking. There are not enough parking spaces for each tenant and there are double yellow lines throughout the front of the building. The property management has been largely perfect, with quick responses to the small issues we’ve had during the course of our stay.

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

The neighbours are lovely! A really quiet and respectful building.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Some of the furniture is slightly style over substance – looks good but is fairly cheap.

Love being close to the water
Close to the buzz of the city
Bad far from a train station
Not never good for parking

Please review your development:

It’s not been great. I hope it improves. The management company are hard to get hold of. May things have gone wrong since moving in. Don’t feel like we get our money’s worth and not true to advertisement.

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

The building is not complete yet

What is the best feature of your home:

The open lounge dinning area.
The black out curtains
The walls are thick you don’t hear anyone else.

Perfect Spot

Review Date Mar 2021

Close to the city centre and plenty of supermarkets / shops within walking distance and transport links. Beautiful scenery and perfect place to go for strolls outside.

Please review your development:

Apartment itself could do with a fixing up however the management and building management are all super helpful and friendly. Views from the apartment are amazing overlooking the water or the city centre. Noise levels have never been a problem and can hardly ever hear any neighbours which is great!

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

I wish before I had moved in that the car lift is not always working however I do believe this is being fixed and I wish of I’d have known that there is limited space nearby for visitors to park.

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

Within several days they’ve been here to resolve the issue as none of them have been emergencies. They have always been friendly and efficient.

Great location and place to live with some possible improvements

Great location 15 min walk from Liverpool one, with views across the Mersey and Liver building. 15 mins from nearest train station but 30 mins from line streets. No super market close by, nearest is 10-15 mins drive but some smaller shapes within walking distance

Please review your development:

Well designed with good views and friendly helpful concierge staff. No issues with bins or parcel receipt. Often issues with one or both car lifts, one has now been broken for several months which creates issues during busy times. Cracks in windows which have never been fixed.

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

No major supermarket nearby. No visitor parking. Closes shops only 5-10 min walk.

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

Never responded to issues around the cracks in windows. Car lift remained broken for months
