Katie Chidlow (Renewals Administrator) speaks to Sophie Hughes about her 13 years renting with City Residential
- How long have you been a tenant of City Residential?
I have been a tenant with City Residential since 2003 first at The Collegiate on Shaw Street and since 2004 at The Symphony on Stowell Street.
- How did you first hear of City Residential?
I can’t remember exactly about how I heard about City Residential but I do remember thinking that you seemed to have made inner city living a speciality which I liked
- Do you enjoy living in the City Centre?
Yes, I’ve always lived in the City Centre more or less. My grandparents lived in Great George’s Street by China Town. I grew up in a street off Park Road and my paternal family had lived there since 1874. So I am a real Liverpool Urbanite.
- What is your favourite feature of your apartment / what made you choose your current building?
I chose the apartment because it’s between the Philharmonic Hall and the Everyman Theatre and I love going to the theatre. The apartment was not long converted when I first moved in so was fresh and new.
- What is your favourite aspect of City Centre living?
It has been fascinating to watch the change in the area, when I first moved here it was quite quiet now it’s quite manic at times. I like that, it’s been wonderful to see Liverpool changing so positively. I like being able to get to most places without a car and being able to enjoy the restaurants and shops. Being so close to my work is also very useful.
- How have you found renting with City Residential?
I always enjoy speaking to the team there as they are always very helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending City Residential to friends and family.
