In Liverpool's Granby neighborhood, proud residents and a group of architects have brought back to life the area's four remaining Victorian streets, earning them a nomination for Britain's prestigious Turner Prize for contemporary art.All successive renovation projects have failed and three quarters of the 200 remaining houses were empty for over 20 years.As part of the CLT, founded by residents in 2011, the council agreed to hand over ownership of ten houses.Steinbeck Studios also put the CLT in contact with Assemble, a group of young architects specialising in projects combining art, design and architecture, particularly in struggling communities.Thanks to the investor's interest-free £500,000 (704,000 euros, $780,800) loan, the CLT was able to raise a further £500,000 and begin renovating 10 houses, of which five are nearing completion.
