NEARLY a year on from being given the green light from Liverpool City Council work on the new development of a seven-bed at North View on Edge Lane – close to Liverpool city centre – finally got under way last month.
The new development will sit on the land behind 11, 12 and 12A North View.
Situated in a conservation area each stage of the development must be carefully checked over by a conservation officer. Adding to the complexity of the build the new property is designed to be one-and-a-half stories – so that the building does not protrude over neighbouring walls – meaning that the contractors had to undergo some back breaking work to get rid of over 1400 tonnes of soil before laying the foundations.
“…1400 TONNES OF SOIL NEED TO BE REMOVED BEFORE WORK EVEN STARTS ON LAYING THE FOUNDATIONS…”
Two months into the build and progress is picking up with the first perimeter of brickwork now laid with contractors battling the freezing weather to try and finish the outer framework of the property before the new year.
As well as the seven bedrooms the house will boast a large kitchen/diner area as well as a separate utility room. One room will have an Ensuite while the other six tenants will be able to share two large bathrooms. Each bedroom will come fully furnished with a desk, chair, wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside table and wall mounted plasma TV.
Perhaps most impressively the new-build will be knitted to the current properties by a communal courtyard garden to be shared by all 23 tenants on the new-look campus.
Aesthetically, the external ground floor will be built with matching brick from the neighbouring houses with the first floor made from darkened timber helping it subtly blend into the surrounding area. The first floor will run to half the length of the ground floor with a unobtrusive flat roof covering the remainder of the ground floor.
If you or you know of anyone who wants to be the first tenants to live in this exciting new property, don’t hesitate to get in touch on the details, below.

Above from L-R: Work starts on digging out the hole where the building will sit. Contractors level the ground ready to lay the foundations. The excess soil – 1400 tonnes – is put to one side. The concrete is poured into the metal framework as the foundations get set.
