City Residence The Apartments - A Closer Look

Prime Placement in the City

Seated in the heart of Liverpool’s vast city, the City Residence apartments will surely be popular among the increasing of workers and young professionals looking to move towards urban living. Sectors such as Liverpool’s business district, for example, are easily accessible, and with the amount of growth and regeneration ongoing in the area, the opportunities available at tenant’s doorsteps will continue to surge into the future.

Continued Success

The City Residence apartments are Phase II of a hugely successful build project – City Residence The Townhouses – which was a development that sold out fast, was fully tenanted, and even won the 2018 North West Property Award for the best small new home development. Nexus Residential will continue to attain this high-achieving level of quality in their apartment builds, and these completed builds can give investors an indication of what Phase II might be like when finished.
