Over 700 of the region’s top property professionals gathered on Thursday 7th June at The Titanic Hotel, Liverpool to celebrate the Insider Liverpool City Region Awards. The awards, now in their 15th year celebrate the best developments and companies working within the Liverpool City Region.

Placefirst’s transformation of the Welsh Streets was awarded Best Residential Development of the Year, beating off stiff competition from Russell Homes, Sovini Homes and Chancery House LLP.

The Welsh Streets is breathing new life into over 400 empty homes in Toxteth, Liverpool and raising standards in private renting for the growing number of households who rely on this sector for their housing needs. The transformation of this once decrepit estate was hailed by the judges as “phenomenal”.

David Smith-Milne, Managing Director of Placefirst commented:

Placefirst set out to shake things up in the private rental sector by offering families great homes and a personal service so they can call a rented house a home. At Welsh Streets we have completely reimagined the Victorian terrace, preserving rich heritage features whilst introducing a number of modern design interventions that family life and community at their heart.

To be awarded Best Residential Development across the Liverpool City Region is a genuine honour and exciting news for the Placefirst team who strive every day to make renting better and a genuine alternative to home ownership”.
