I don't remember ever seeing a proper CGI of the amended facade. They replaced the curved one with a blockier design.

Yeah, the lack of an updated CGI doesn't inspire me with confidence.

Do you guys think the development of Reliance House and The Residence on Water Street is good?

In terms of physical appearance vs renders, I refer you to our past experience. Who can say how things will turn out these days. Do the council even care?

In terms of Reliance House in relation to its surroundings, I take the additions to it as an affront.

I am bemused at how talk can be made of how much WHS is valued when this will occur in line of sight of where the council now sit. If it wasn't for the fact that I know that certain types would rush to profit immediately, I would say strip the title now (although perhaps the WHS status fate might be sealed already, if a certain someone feels that the time is right to now suddenly make out like he gives a fig about it, making out as if efforts to save it).

I think Liverpool's great buildings being converted from offices into flats is an appalling state of affairs, which I believe the city's people (as distinct from so many of its politicians, pseudo-politicians and individual money makers) will regret forever. That Water Street is now mainly devoid of commercial activity is not going to be an effect reversed by HMRC moving in.

I also take issue with the type of flats that so many of the city's various great buildings are getting turned into, when the city has an ongoing need to attract educated business owners/starters who can choose where they live, and when the city has so much pre-existing experience that demonstrated that high quality, liveable developments create sustainable long-term communities, which results in low crime, business friendly environments, while tiny boxes that attract only transients creates the opposite. Pre-2010, the city was doing very well with this. Would I opt to move to Liverpool city centre these days?

Coupled with the ruination of the city's waterfront via some mutation of the omnipresent, obligatory Joe-ny Island fairgound, I honestly cannot think of one single part of the city centre I would look at anymore, nor one development that I would consider.

So long after its completion, I wonder if anyone has any idea as to how many people are now living in Orleans House...

I haven’t seen much to comment on tbh. One thing I was less than happy with, though, was that the new roof extension on Reliance House would impinge on the sight-lines down towards The Liver Building.

Will the building be getting a clean-up, I wonder? Signature Living certainly haven’t cleaned West Africa House.

Ground breaking. Perhaps these are the companies are mayor/s are more interested in laying a path out for?

Yes. That's what everyone looks out for...

It's all just so very desperate.

Rather than invent all that twaddle, I'd much prefer to see a statement like this -

They will add visual clutter to several key junctions, but money is tight and they are another source of revenue, so that is a compromise we are prepared to make.
At least it's honest.

A worrying thought is that they might actually believe their own tripe.

Developer Legacie wants to convert Reliance House in Water Street into 41 buy-to-let flats.


Now architects Falconer Chester Hall have revealed striking images of what the extended building could look like.

The images, seen as part of a planning application submitted to Liverpool council, show an extra two storeys would be added to the top of the block facing Water Street, while three storeys would be added to the rest of the building facing onto Old Church Yard and Tower Gardens.

How is the development of Reliance House now?

You said this same thing just recently, but Iím not sure what, exactly, you mean?

All work appears to be internal only, apart from the proposed new roof top box, which to my mind spoils the sight-line down towards The Liver Building.
In fact every time I walk past I wonder if work has even started yet, as I never see any activity at the front.

Thanks, I want to see how the actual outcome of the reliance house construction affects its surroundings.

You've not seen the new billboard count next to the school checker on Zoopla?

It's astonishingly weak. Limited in their powers, but lacking the imagination or connections to facilitate anything else, these baubles are the best they can manage.
