The opening of Shallcross Court was attended by Angela Forshaw, LMH Executive Director of Operations and Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Roz Gladden
A renovated and redeveloped sheltered housing scheme with new communal facilities for Liverpool Mutual Homes.
This was formerly an untidy collection of buildings with their backs, fortress-like, on their surroundings overlooking a dark and congested courtyard. The apartments at Shallcross Court now look across a large south-facing communal garden in the centre of the scheme.
The previously separate blocks have been knitted together by internal corridors that connect to a striking main entrance building with a range of facilities for the use of the residents.
The new buildings are framed by mature trees with views out across the main road, the eye-catching new building stands out as a new landmark in the local area, making it easy to find and as a townscape element of quality.
