Work has started on an exciting new development from the Marshall Group; combining our quality self-contained apartments and one of the city’s most popular eateries in an iconic Liverpool building.

The building in question was formerly the home of Hattons Model Railways, a staple of Smithdown Road since 1946, but since the company moved into new premises in 2016 the building had been in a state of disuse.

However, 364 Smithdown Road in the thriving Allerton area of the city is now the site of another highly-anticipated Marshall Group property refurbishment. The conversion of the commercial premises will provide a shell core for the latest addition to South Liverpool’s thriving food scene, joining the influx of some of Liverpool’s best bars and restaurants.

Lucy Kehoe, of Signature’s Liverpool, praised the recent developments in the area, saying that “a quiet food revolution has been brewing, turning the streets of Wavertree, Aigburth and Allerton into the top culinary quarter of the city”.

We have also started work on five apartments coming to the first and second floors of the building; ideal for those who want to have the best that Liverpool has to offer right at their fingertips.

As with all Marshall Group refurbishments, these apartments will be finished to a high specification using top quality materials. Even better, as we’re an accredited Living Wage Employer, property refurbishments carried out by the Marshall Group will benefit all involved in the development.
