Liverpool developer, Elliot Group, has completed a 200-home luxury apartment block called The Address in the city’s Ropewalks district.

The 152,000 sq ft scheme, funded by Nat West in a £16.8m deal, is the latest institutional-grade PRS scheme from the developer and “raises the bar” in Liverpool, according to Elliot Group founder Elliot Lawless.

He said: “We took our inspiration from London and Dublin in terms of what institutional funds want to offer the market.

“The focus on design and fit-out has been matched by service standards, with a 24-hour concierge and additional facilities such as lounge areas, a residents’ gymnasium and a rooftop garden.”

The Address includes 32 studios, 102 one-bed apartments and 66 two-bed homes.

There are two commercial units on the ground floor.

Sam Tumilty of building managers Urban Evolution says lettings are already ahead of expectations: “We have let 80 apartments already and the consistent message we’re getting back is that the quality of each apartment’s finish and fit-out is completely different from anything else in the Liverpool market.”

The development was built on the former headquarters of social care charity PSS, which Elliot Group acquired in June 2017, and rises to 11 storeys.

Designed by the Liverpool studio of Falconer Chester Hall, Newry Construction was the contractor.

Adam Hall, Falconer Chester Hall managing director, said: “This is our 21st project we have delivered with Elliot Group and it’s one we are very proud of.

“The homes are exceeding expectations and are in a very quiet corner of Ropewalks, yet moments away from Liverpool One.”
