    The 90-year-old Grade II Listed building is the last remaining original style tenement building in the city.

    Eldon Grove was the first accommodation in the city to consist of blocks of balcony-accessed flats and is now recognised as an important part of Liverpool’s architectural heritage. It was originally constructed as part of a labourers village and was oficically opened by the Countess of Derby in 1912, and was last used as student accommodation, but has stood derelict for years.

    Legendary Liverpool FC Manager Bill Shankly was once pictured watching a game of street football at one of the Eldon Grove Flats.

    The site is now set to undergo at £6.6 million renovation as it’s fallen into disrepair over the years. The plan is to convert it into 45 affordable one and two bedroomed apartments. The cabinet is being asked to approve the proposals which will see the lease for the site transferred back to the council by the current owners JGLR Developments Limited. Documents prepared for the cabinet say Eldon Grove, which is currently classed as a “Building at risk”, will be able to be brought back into use.

    Nothing special to be honest, but still worth a look if you're in the area... The most fun I had was riding around on a scooter that had been left there. Inside is completely gutted and a few of the apartments are quite badly fire damaged so be careful where you stand.

    So much potential, it would be nice to see this place given a new lease of life, when we visited here we came across two bag heads full on doing "the bad thang" in a flat that had four parking meters in it, obviously ripped out of the pavements nearby, we just walked past the broken window swifto fashion :) but this place is a decent historical mooch still.
