Liverpool-based property agency, Redwing, which is part of the Regenda Group, has launched its latest development in the heart of the Fabric District. ‘The Drapery’ apartments. named to reflect the district’s historic links with the textile trade, consist of 24 apartments for rent, on London Road.
The refurbishment of the 200-year-old building was delivered via M&Y Maintenance and Construction on behalf of Redwing. M&Y has restored the property to a modern and energy-efficient standard while maintaining its original features.
The addition of these apartments to the local market has helped to increase the choice of high quality mixed-tenure accommodation in the area. The demand for this standard of property can be demonstrated through the interest Redwing received in marketing the apartments. Over 90% of the homes were reserved ‘off plan’ before the refurbishment was complete. With all 24 apartments successfully let within 2 weeks of the properties coming to market.
The location of the Drapery at the end of London Road provides great access to Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter. The improved connection between these neighbourhoods is attractive for both people and businesses looking to relocate to the area.
By working in partnership with local stakeholders, Redwing are supporting the vision of Fabric District CIC, to regenerate the area. The addition of new accommodation like the Drapery will contribute to attracting more residents, businesses and investment to this thriving, enterprising and creative area of the city.
Michelle Brooks, Director of Operations at Redwing said:
“We’re delighted to see how popular the beautiful new homes at The Drapery on London Road, have been. We hope the re-development of these apartments will encourage other investors into the area as more residents and businesses make this unique and vibrant part of Liverpool their home”.
Susie, one of the new residents at The Drapery said:
“I am so pleased we managed to reserve one of the Drapery apartments. The buildings’ characteristics have been kept, with all the modern fixtures and fittings you would expect. It’s a great base to travel to work in the City Centre and onwards, while just up the road we have access to the Fabric District’s creative scene with all the independent shops, cafes, and traders. I’m proud to call this area of the city my new home!”
