The hotel is to be called, Alias Hotel St Louis and will be built in the former Seel House Press building in Seel St. It will be a 70 bedroomed 3-star town house hotel.

Another piece of the ROPEWALKS jigsaw falls into place.

Jam? Since when has Liverpool needed a jamworks, given that it sits upon a jam butty seam that famously outcrops at Knotty Ash?

I'm trying to locate it in my mind, is the brown building on the right of the render, the backside of the Tea Factory? The commodities quarter develops: Tea, vanilla, jam?

Yeah, it's the old 3rst (showing my age :$) that they knocked last year (or earlier this year, I can't remember).

Looks good

Cheers Doug

I allways wonder where these new developments are going and what building is involved. The old Press building looks in good nick and looks a solid building, so should be great when converted into a hotel, to liven up Seel st which is a bit of a dead area at times. Also great to see some action now on demolition of the eyesore for Elysian fields.

Note:- Elysian fields will be about 9 mikes high, and the current building which dwarfs the Georgian terraces is only 5 mikes, although these 5 mikes are probably taller than the corresponding mikes in Elysian fields...!

Although thinking about it, this current building was probably designed "obsurdly" to match the symetry of the georgian terracess mike height.

went to the new bar..Its called Korova.

Not bad really. Nice change from the other Concert Sq. dives. However, its a bit "Plastic Rhino" (poncy fashion magazine) and looks like Microzine on Bold st.

Owned in part by Reuben from Ladytron (who DJs at the Evol night there every Friday).

Financed by the Lyceum group, responsible for Alma de Cuba, Blue, baby blue/cream, pan american and others.

Ahh, Ladytron. A sort of Electropop keyboard band if I recall. I didn't know they were still around.

Good to see things starting to get moving in Ropewalks again. That Seel House press building looks perfect to convert into a smart hotel.

By the way, in Henry Street, Circle 101 is nearing completion and there is another building called the Foundry underway. A rendering has appeared on the hoarding of the building to replace the old NCP car park in Duke Street.

Mr Wood, how about when we have the next walkabout, we meet up in the Fly in the Loaf again, positioning us nicely for a Ropewalks roamaround?

That's Saturday 15th, when I'm around anyway.
