As far as I'm aware, there isnt too much going on on the Liverpool side of the river except down near Otterspool where you have the Garden Festival being redeveloped and of course, Brunswick Quay. There is also an 11-storey building proposed at Runcorn.
There is a lot of interesting stuff going on in Wirral though, such as the Poseidon statue and the large scale redevelopment of New Brighton.

Have a look at Martin's devopement summary which mentions things such as LFC's new staduim and Aintree Racecourse.

Another one not mentioned is the New Heartlands scheme.

New Heartlands

Most of us are critical of the scheme which appears to be commited to lower density housing in the inner city. There are also the city gateway improvement shemes such as the Edge Lane approach where the roads capacity is to be increased resulting in the demolision of many homes.

Welcome, the first thing to know on this super forum is to forget all the crap that the Preston Prat utters.
There is plenty of activity outside the downtown area, details are a bit thin on the ground here as we concentrate on the big sexy jobs. take a look at Liverpool Land Development Co. www.liverpooldev.co.uk for information on projects in the 4 STRATEGIC INVESTMENT AREAS (SIAs). Over £325M is being invested in these four areas alone. Other sites that will give infirmation are, www.liverpool.gov.uk & www.merseyside.org.uk try these first.

As for that list of jobs posted by Preston Prat, they are all still on the drawing board.

MAybe Project Jennifer could get a mention around the Scotland Rd/Gt Homer St area. Not much has happened apart from rumours. But at the moment there is a 4storey apartment block under construction which has sold out and phase 2 is about to start sson. Also a new centre for the NSPCC is planned where the indoor market is. I know its not 50 storey's but for this part of the city its a step in the right direction and I don't see why this area can't milk the city centre for all its worth!

City sites in building deal Jun 9 2005




By Neil Hodgson, Liverpool Echo


BUILDER David McLean has clinched a landmark deal with an office developer worth £75m a year, which includes a new scheme in Liverpool.

Leeds-based Business Homes develops offices all over the UK and has 30 projects under way.

It was recently granted planning permission to start work on a development at Liverpool International Business Park, next to Liverpool John Lennon airport, big enough to cater for 200 jobs.

Business Homes chairman Simon Houlston also indicated a desire to develop a similar-sized adjacent scheme and also one in Wirral.

Under the agreement McLeans will build up to 250 units a year for Business Homes, worth £75m annually to the construction group.

David McLean Contractors group managing director Ken Dalton said: "This is an exciting opportunity for all concerned and we see it as the major achievement in being able to deliver this quality product for a guaranteed price throughout the country."

The builder is behind several major developments in Liverpool's regeneration, from student accommodation to luxury housing and hotels.

Business Homes provides modern, air conditioned units for offices and start-up firms. The Liverpool site will provide nine separate office units. Work should start in early July.

Mr Houlston said: "We build in phases and there will be four units in the first phase. All four are in solicitors' hands, so that means we will start to build the rest in six to eight weeks' time."

He said the four tenants included two airport- related companies, a software company and a media firm.

The company said it distinguishes itself from fellow developers by offering freehold packages on single floors, which encourages buy-to-let deals.

Mr Houlston added: "We are on the lookout for sites on Merseyside and we are very interested in the former Cammell Laird land and are keen to go there."

Thumbs up Everton goes green...................

A 150 home green village is to be developed on a former tower block site in Everton at a cost of £18M. The design will be based on "green" ideas, high standards of insulation to cut fuel bills and appliances that use less water are proposed along with timber frame construction instead of concrete,the village will be built at the junction of Everton Brow and Salisbury St.

Sounds a bit like the planned 'green scheme' for the Dingle too. Not heard anything on that in a while..

ASDA have applied for planning permission to build a 40,000 sq ft store on the TA base in Bootle, behind New Strand railway station too.

Perhaps it could it be converted to apartments?

If it was to be demolished I would hope that they keep the building that fronts Eaton Road then demolish the buildings behind it.

A prime site to relocate would have been the land off Edge Lane, next to the old John Moores Pools building, but I believe this area is now being developed for something else.

It says the hospital could be relocated to stanley market...! Doesn't sound like an ideal place to me.

Hospitals these days need to be ultra modern, all in one, cheap and clean, so it's understandable new ones are replacing the old multi building hospitals, so hopefully Alder hey will be built on a new site, and the old site redeveloped for housing, with retention of the best bits of architecture.

Has anyone seen the plans for Woodside? could be good. The green scheme in Dingle is under construction - this is behind where I live!. Personally it would of been greener to of kept Corinth tower, more density = less travel to the city for work and shopping etc - they could of done a view 146 on it!.

Isn't there loads of unused or underused space in and around the southern docks, Scotty Road and the central docks?
