An amazing home, an enjoyable lifestyle and the best launchpad for my career

The James has a design language and identity that I think nails what they offer. The design shows attention to detail, genuine thought, elegance, and modern convenience, e.g. the exclusive app.

I saw this with the choice of furniture and fixtures (in the private studios and communal lounge). Everything feels premium.

Put it this way: When someone asked where I live, I felt proud while answering them.

Communal facilities like the lounge and gym are well-equipped. Having them in the same property is incredibly convenient.

The lounge gave me a space where I could earn 3 promotions in a year and a half. From starting out as a Copywriter, I became a Product Marketing Specialist, then a Brand Marketing Specialist. And the workstation in my studio, combined with the design, got me into my most productive mindset.

I could work with fellow residents in the lounge, and we’d learn from each other while enjoying the workday more.

Our bonds became strong quite quickly because we took part in the weekly social events together too. I really cherish the relationships that came with making The James my home.

On the whole, The James was more than an amazing home to me. It was a space that added value to every area of my life.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I can’t think of a location with better access to the finest experiences in Liverpool. I have so many fun memories at All Bar One, Restaurant Bar and Grill, The Alchemist, Gaucho — the list goes on and on. And each of them was a few minutes away at most. Being in this spot means walking in the area feels safe at any time.

Being at The James helped me meet people to have these adventures, which made it all much more fun.

Then there’s Liverpool One just 3 minutes away if you take the path between the Queen Victoria statue and the courthouse. Loads and loads of eateries, shopping facilities, and leisure activities.

Nights out and things like that are better suited to Bold Street, Matthew Street, and Concert Square. The furthest is only a 15-minute walk away at most.

Just cross the road and you’re at the — in my opinion — majestic docks. Great place for fresh air, a jog outside, or just looking at something beautiful and natural.

Basically, it feels like everything is at your fingertips.

You can explore it all or just figure out your preferences. But this is the part of town where it’s all possible and convenient.

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

The James was more than a home. It was a base for my entire lifestyle and development. That was a wonderful surprise.

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

Anything I popped into the exclusive app was handled very quickly, within the hour.

Hi … right we’re do I start; from the moment I walked into the James over 6 months ago and greeted by both Ellie and Jenn I felt at ease and just fell In love with the place at the reception and the welcoming nature of both these ladies. I viewed all 3 sizes of properties from the cozy medium and the grand and wanted the corner top floor apartment over looking the river Mersey and liver buildings which has always been a dream of mine since I child. The whole complex is stunning, smart, clean and tidy always somewhere I can call home and feel safe living in the city.
I could not fault the staff and complex and I would definitely recommend this to anyone whom wishes to live and work in the city. Thanks Jen and Ellie for simply just being you x

Fantastic accommodation and staff to match

The building is superbly well designed, very modern and spacious with excellent furnishings/facilities. I find it extremely comfortable to live here. A big concern prior to moving in was wether it would be too noisy and interfere with my work but for a city centre building it is surprisingly quiet from external noise whilst their is essentially no internal noise, I often question if I have neighbours as it’s that silent. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have a peaceful sleep. The bed the building provided is extremely comfortable and high quality too.

Since moving in the staff have been nothing short of superb, they resolve all issues quickly and efficiently and there always so welcoming and friendly when you come into the building, especially Jennifer and Ellie.

Ultimately I could write a lot of positive feedback for this building as it has really become my home when I had only intended to stay for 4 months originally, but now I’m nearing a year of stay! My friend even moved in as well based on my recommendation I rate here that highly.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Sitting between the Albert docks and the city center the building offers me extremely quick access to the vibrant social scene as well fantastic transport links essential to my work.

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

Take the time to explore the city, I made the mistake of starting a job the moment I arrived and didn’t realise just how much Liverpool has to offer until much later than I should of. Fantastic city with fantastic people.

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

After a year of living in the building the tv provided by the building ceased to work, I emailed Ellie at the front desk on my way to work, she replied within the hour and kindly had a replacement fitted by the time I was home.

A lovely place to live

The design of the building was a draw for me when I first came to see the building. It is evident that a great deal of attention was put into the details of this apartment building. It is beautifully designed and decorated. The lounge room is spacious, tastefully decorated, well-lit, and welcoming. The outdoor area is also very nicely decorated. It is a lovely place to spend time, and it is rather quiet. The gym, while on the smaller side, has everything I could possible need while exercising.

The rooms are nicely designed and decorated. The paint colors, furniture, the beautiful bathroom all come together to make a beautiful home. The rooms are on the smaller side, but this is helped by access to the spacious common area and outdoor living area.

The building and property management are exceptional. They are prompt in their communication and very professional. I have not yet had an issue with my apartment, but I have the feeling that if I were to reach out to management that I would be in good hands.

The staff here are very warm and welcoming. They make this apartment feeling like a home.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

This is an excellent location as it is quite central and is rather tidy. It is near an area with diverse bars and restaurants of high quality. It is very close to the Albert Dock area which is definitely a selling point. It is also very near James Street station and there are many bus stops in the area.

The one draw back is that is is near a rather busy area in terms of traffic.

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

I wish I had considered the traffic noise.

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

I have not yet had any issues with the apartment, but I am confident that the building management would respond promptly and in a professional manner.
