An impressive design with a density of about 80 units to the acre – also impressive

By Ted Clement-Evans

The Anfield flats actually look great! Maybe that’s because its a local developer with a stake in the area?

Very nice apartments for the Anfield area

By David

Liverpool FC is the obvious link to increased development in the Anfield area , and when the new stand finally gets underway ,and capacity rises ,the location will get even more investment like hotels etc.
If only some way could be found to remove the back alleys from the terraced streets so the houses have their own enclosed rear areas these properties would be even more attractive and free the area from litter and fly-tipping.

It’s not all about density, it’s about ‘place’. You need the right density for the right place. A good development for this part of Anfield. Anfield has an awful lot of character and much of its Victorian/Edwardian architecture is really high quality, built by Welsh builders often, at a time when there was a real pride in building well and improving on the past. They used the highly prized terracotta detailing liberally. The alleys are all ‘alley-gated’ now I think, but the mix in Anfield of old and new, respecting the character of the old, is what’s driving the area’s revival.
