Great Newton Street
The Great Newton Street development saw a former car park and disused University property turned into a dynamic 267 bed student hall of residence next to the University of Liverpool’s campus, the development was designed by Leach Rhodes Walker Architects and constructed by Marcus Worthington’s.
Worthington Properties acquired the site from The University of Liverpool in August 2012 to develop a striking new scheme to help attract students to the city.
Spread over four and seven storeys, Great Newton Street has clusters of bedrooms based around a communal living area.

It also has a private student garden and amenity area to meet the needs of the modern day student.
