Apartments proposed opposite Anfield stadium

A distinctive four-storey block of flats will be built opposite Liverpool FC’s stadium on Walton Breck Road if a proposal by local developer Chris Farley goes ahead.

Designed by Liverpool-based practice Studio Attis, there would be 42 units above two ground-floor commercial spaces, one of 1,850 sq ft and another of 1,410 sq ft. The site is a cleared former petrol station on the corner of Burleigh Road South.

The scheme is set out in an L shape and at the fourth storey the building is set back from the street. The proposal is for nine one-bedroom and 33 two-bedroom apartments.

Private developer Farley created a special purpose vehicle, Anfield Developments, to bring the project forward.

The planning consultant is Zerum.

Holy hell they’re hideous. Anfields neat terraced streets cheek-by-jowel with this abberation of design and context. Looks like it’s been designed in Microsoft Excel. Screams 1960s shopping parade.

I like it. Bit of low rise resi is hard to come by these days.

By Noice

Well that comment was a load of rubbish. Holy hell indeed.

By Michael McDonough

Why do some people go over the top when faced with innovation ?….The design will be a landmark for the future….’ Meet you by the trendy flats before the match ‘…..bring it on !!!!.

By Tercol

A developer you say?

By Verum

“Distinctive” is one word. “Affordable” or “Sympathetic” to the surroundings area or people – maybe not. As a resident here I have learned we have nil say. Money talks every single time.

A step up from the shameful Keepmoat shacks which have been allowed to depopulate and disfigure an area seen by thousands of visitors and tourists every year.

@Morgan:- and you may find yourself living in a Keepmoat Shack

Why do we insist on developing this rubbish in Liverpool. No aspiration

By Phil Malthouse

Interesting step back on one end – almost as if making room for a Walton Breck Road re-alignment. Kop expansion – happy days.

Also, I despair at some of the comments here. This is a damn sight better than the dereliction, rotting terraces and empty voids that litter the space today. Great development with proper density. Get it built.

By Denby

Looks mint. Just what the area needs. People will whinge about anything but I’m pretty certain none of the whiners on here have the foresight or drive to develop something like this.

By Trecky

I don’t think the pictures do this justice; the buildings look bland and almost look like empty, derelict warehouses, but in reality will probably look a hell of a lot better in real life.

Class.good to see someone investing
Well done


Generic dull design

He’s right, it does scream 1060’s. These things get dated quickly and always look tatty; look at Hutton and Kirkby town centres

By George

Land with building regs is a lot more expensive to purchase by interested parties ; )


Well it will be interesting for those who will choose to live there or who wish to visit the residents with street parking restricted. Along with Walton Breck Road closed for a couple of hours on match days and now the added post season Rugby League and music events.

We need traditional terraces houses and bungalows here that real people live in not high rise apartment blocks for outsiders that are an insult to Liverpool’s heritage

By Scouser born and bred

Another one supposedly becomes a property developer.

By Old Hall Street

@Verum….ha ha… thoughts too!

By Old Hall Street

@Scouser born and bred – high rise? its 4 stories. With modern ceiling heights its probably not much taller than a Victorian terraced house.

By Perspective

Horrible design, great idea. Make sure they’re set back to allow realignment of Walton Breck Road as per Anfield Road! The stadium will surely expand in all 4 sides!!

By Liverpolitan


How do you even think Liverpool exists? No wonder we’re so far behind other cities.

By @Scouser born and bred

@Verum – I too never knew them as property developer. Expanded into new markets I see!

By Bob Dawson

Absolutely AMAZING an about bloody time .. things like this can only encourage other ppl to invest in the area L5 . Everything seems to go to L1 so this is very refreshing an can only make this run down part of liverpool more appealing on the eye
