Derelict wasteland set for transformation in £30m gateway development

CGI of Carlton Court

Widnes developer, Sourced Development Group, has unveiled plans for a £30m apartment block on a gateway to Liverpool city centre.

It proposes to transform a derelict site into modern homes and retail space.

Carlton Court will deliver 123 spacious one- and two-bedroom apartments with two-bed duplex apartments and mixed-use and co-working retail space.

Enjoying a prime location on West Derby Road, the development is a five-minute drive from Liverpool city centre. The communal facilities, for residents’ sole use, feature impressively landscaped gardens, parking facilities with dedicated car parking spaces and secure cycle storage.

Extensive clearance works have been carried out on site by Sourced Development Group as it aims to breathe new life into the area. Working closely with Liverpool City Council, the company hosted vital works enabling the restoration and improvement of the historic Tuebrook waterway that runs to the back of the site and gives the area its name.

Carlton Court is part of Sourced Development Group’s plans to deliver 3,000 homes across the North West over the next three years, including the 310-home Kingsway Square Development and 614-home Westminster Park in Liverpool and the 525-home at Regent Plaza in Manchester.

Managing Director, Joanne Waller, said: “Carlton Court will breathe further new life into North Liverpool.

“The stunning and impactful design will create modern homes and attractive retail space for visitors and new businesses out of a site that we are all familiar with.

“Having a landmark location turned into new homes will be wonderful for the local economy and the aesthetic approach into the centre centre will be further heightened after our success in Derby Court.”

She added: “We are generating another gateway into Liverpool city centre which will produce hundreds of new jobs and apprenticeships as we transform an abandoned wasteland into a bustling and beautiful residential neighbourhood.

“Sourced Development Group are passionate about the transformation of this historic city while respecting the unique history of each area. This is no different with Carlton Court.”
