I've not read back through the post properly, but let me guess.. Is this the building on the corner or Slater/Duke Street we're discussing here?

Yes, the old MSCP/Yankee carwash site which has been demolished and now a hoarded site awaiting construction of apartment building (facing Duke St.)

This rotting building, covered in new Chinese themed artwork (as shown above in A.D.Williams post) is on Seel st/Slater St (West corner as shown on multimap).

Casartelli Building

The curved part of the 'new' Casartelli has now been rendered, with the scaffold still in situ I will reserve judgement until the scaffold comes down. I was not a great admirer of this plan to rebuild the one that fell down, but having seen this building this morning I am liking it more.

I don't mind it actually. I also thought that rebuilding it was a daft idea, but I'm more optimistic about it these days.

I have to say though that I hope that's just a yellow undercoat, as it looks pretty naff for what is an important corner site. I thought it was going to be exposed brickwork like the Hanover st. frontage, which would have looked much classier.

It's quite colourful, i like it, adds some unique character that probably wouldn't be matched by a new building. Is this new building smaller than the original...!

Agreed, I like it. This city needs more colour. Most buildings are grey.

new bar opening soon on the corner of ropewalks sq. (home of the metroscopes and the entrance to FACT).

SoHo Bar and Grill methinks its called. Glad to see the ground floor of the new builds are starting to pick up occupants.

If you build them, they will come...

ropewalks area has to be one of the best parts of liverpool city centre, with loads of bars,clubs,restruants,apartments and FACT. I think the london area of the city centre should have a similar revamp. then maybe the odeon there will stay.

Was around Ropewalks today. The former catering college on Colquitt Street is now under demolition. A large part of the centre of the building is now down, with just a little more than the ends (i.e. the parts closest to Seel Street and the Duke Street buildings remaining. I would Imagine it'll easily be down by the end of the month, allowing for clerance of foundations early in the new year.

Great, that's one ugly Fyooka of a building, to be replaced with something worth looking at.
