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.

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.

Close to city centre, nice views.

Please review your development:

The property is very nice and is finished to a good standard. The cleaner also does a great job in communal areas. The flats are well insulated in terms of noise so you don’t hear too much from neighbouring flats. Poorer aspects are the lack of parking – not even an on road option. There’s also often noise outside from various work going on.

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

The building postcode often isn’t recognised by delivery companies like food deliverers.

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

Better availability of parking close to the building without risk of tickets.

Overall The Keel is GREAT

Review Date Jan 2021

So far this community has been nothing but a joy to move into. I have no negative comments.

Please review your development:

The apartments are nice and modern, the walls are soundproof and all management, staff and facilities are class! Would definitely recommend! My apartment comes furnished and all is good quality, you can tell they care and haven’t just splodged a couple of quids. The beds and couches are comfy and the wardrobes are reasonable space.

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

I can honestly say I have no complaints, overall the keel is great.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature of living at the Keel is the peacefulness of the area and your surroundings. Also great for walks on the docks. Andddd they allow dogs!!!! I love bumping into the fur baby owners and their babies on my way out!

Absolutely beautiful area with a view of the river and the city. Close to the arena, exhibition centre and Albert docks. Little bit of a walk to a train station or supermarket but not excessive.

Please review your development:

The apartment layout and provided furniture are good quality and maintenance is fast and responsive. Post is easily accessible and reception is friendly and helpful. The gym is an absolutely excellent feature. Online portal for selling items and talking to other residents is great. Privately operated carpark is too expensive.

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

You can’t hear anything from flats either side, above or below. You can hear people in the corridor going past so if that bugs you pick one further away from the lift. The heating in the building can be a bit finicky but it’s never off for too long. Guest parking is outside the main gate and is twice as expensive as inside the gate.

What is the best feature of your home:

The service from the front desk and maintaince is fast and reliable

Quiet, good view, close to city city centre

Please review your development:

The keel’s location is what drew us to it in the first place. It is a great area to live in and there is plenty to see only a short walk away. The flat itself is spacious and nice to live in however the building is not well maintained and therefore we have had a lot of ongoing maintenance issues

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

I wish I had known about how many issues the building has

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

I wish it were better maintained. If it was then I would probably stay for a long time
