Ongoing activity at the Eastside Locks site; the Cardigan St side has now been boarded off.

I hadn't seen that view before showing the extension of the pub

Not too keen on how it's been done

Agreed Sefton, doesn't match at all. Dreadful.

I'd rather them have just continued double height glazing up to the pub


Shame really as the rest of the campus have been such high quality and this little bit lets it down a bit

That is an understatement, it is bloody awful.

Flat roof, different colour brick, roof line not matching....terrible

Apart from the windows being the same height they could not have made it "clash" more if they had tried.

Given that it will be in a hidden spot I doubt this will stand out nearly as much when developments in the foreground start. I myself would have preferred continuity of glazing and a match in height of the lower roof line - and the same colour brick. However, realistically it's a tucked away street, leading to a service yard. It shouldn't be a problem.

Speaking of which, is there an up to date map of all the developments/proposals going on all over Eastside yet?

Is that old/fire damaged former(co-op?) building part of the current scheme?

Supposedly, but most of us realists expect it'll get knocked down.

Walked past the hoardings the other day on Cardigan Street and couldn't see anything (of interest). Although a sign said "Eastside Locks" near the gate on Belmont Row.

A retail unit would make so much sense around this area, maybe a M Local or Sainsburys Local.
