407 Smithdown Road and 1 Brookdale Road

Residential and commercial redevelopment

LSH Developments acted as the developer and builder for Luxury Student Homes’ new office development at 407 Smithdown Road with the further provision of two 6 bed flats above. Originally laid out as a small retail unit with one bedsit and two decrepit flats to the rear and upper floors, the building was taken back to bare brick and was substantially redeveloped.

Involved from project inception, LSH Developments once again assisted in taking the building owners through the design and planning process so as to ensure that the investment yield was maximised. This was achieved by securing planning permission for a two storey extension to the rear in addition to full conversion of the previously unused loft space to provide a total of 12 bedrooms across the two new flats with luxury dining kitchens in each flat acting as large communal areas.

The ground floor was redeveloped to provide a larger floor area with conversion to high spec office accommodation and this was provided for Luxury Student Homes. The finished project was delivered on time and on budget and subsequently achieved an excellent commercial valuation.


The property was taken right back to brickwork to ensure a stunning finish for both the residential properties and the commercial unit.


Despite moving to new, larger offices at 323 Smithdown, 407 Smithdown remains in use as a satellite office whilst the flats are consistently popular with students of Liverpool's universities.
