Poet’s Place in Great Homer Street will offer 127 apartments


Caro Developments says it has reached the fit-out stage on a £14.5m residential scheme close to Liverpool city centre.

When completed, Poet’s Place in Great Homer Street will offer 127 apartments, a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom homes with undercroft parking. Caro expects the development to be ready for occupation in the second quarter of 2021.

The development is next to the £150m Project Jennifer scheme which includes a new Sainsbury’s superstore and district retail centre.  It is also located opposite the 100-acre Everton Park.

Caro director Steve Smith said: “Our research shows that people want the convenience of a well-located and well-connected home, but without the downsides of noise, expensive parking and congestion. Poet’s Place fills what is a big gap in the Liverpool market and we’ll be revealing prices and availability soon.

“People are re-assessing how and where they live in light of the pandemic and we can offer a central location but with plenty of green space in the locality.  Along with the homes’ high standard of design and fit-out, we know this will be a key attraction.”

The scheme was certified as wind and water-tight in December and work is now progressing through the fit-out of the first-floor apartments. Work will progress floor-by-floor throughout the spring. Architect on the scheme is Falconer Chester Hall.
