Global real estate advisor JLL have been appointed by waterside regeneration specialists Peel Waters as the marketing, lettings and management agent for Miller’s Quay – the £130m residential scheme at the UK’s largest and most sustainable regeneration project Wirral Waters.

With construction at Miller’s Quay in Wirral, Liverpool approaching its final stages, the development will deliver 500 highly sustainable one- and two-bedroom waterfront apartments, including 100 affordable new homes.

“Miller’s Quay is an outstanding development, showcasing a dedicated effort to harness the area’s potential and promote sustainable living. It highlights Peel’s commitment to supporting local communities and creating environmentally-conscious spaces. We are thrilled to be part of this journey at Wirral Waters, where we look forward to building an inclusive, sustainable and thriving community together.”

John Coddington, Head of Residential – Property & Asset Management, JLL

Apartments at Miller’s Quay are expected to be released in two phases, with phase one, the first 150 new homes, due to open in the summer of 2024. Phase two, the final 350 new homes, will be ready in early 2025. 

This transformational Build to Rent scheme is delivering high levels of sustainability and significant social impact, with 100 affordable new homes included and a wide range of unique learning and employment opportunities for the local community and students at neighbouring Wirral Met College.

“Our appointment of JLL follows a competitive procurement process where they were found to have the expertise, experience and resources to deliver this critical, large-scale development. In addition, JLL’s commitment to sustainability, climate action and shaping healthy and inclusive places for thriving communities are very much aligned with our own values and our ambition for Wirral Waters – so we are delighted to bring them on board at Miller’s Quay.”

Richard Mawdsley, Director of Development, Wirral Waters

The developer Peel Waters and its funding partner Pension Insurance Corporation plc (PIC), along with construction firm GRAHAM, Homes England and Wirral Council, have all been instrumental in the delivery of the Miller’s Quay Build to Rent development.

“It is fantastic to see how Miller’s Quay has progressed. This is a landmark development and shows the council’s brownfield-first strategy is delivering new homes while also supporting our broader regeneration aims across the Left Bank of the borough.”
