I can believe there is gonna be another revoloution where the Old Bluu bar was in rope walks, this is surely only gonna be about 500 yards from the other one in wood st.

Are we vodka crazy

Looking towards Circle109, which is nearing completion.



Looking down Duke Street at the cranes



Unity also looking good from the same spot





The fact that Liverpool is so hilly is something we should really appreciate (Unless you're walking up one!). It'd be really boring if it was flat.

Are you using a new camera? More great piccies. I love that one looking towards Unity- actually they're all good.

You're right about the hills- I think your pictures capture the hilliness really well. Hilly is always better than flat.

Ta Doug / Blabs.

Camera isn't new new, had it for a while but have neglected it so making the most of the clear skies I decided to take him out for the morning. He must have been pissed off though as the battery ran out

New Casartelli rises to glory Dec 16 2005
By Catherine Jones, Liverpool Echo

THE symbol of the ECHO's Stop the Rot campaign has risen phoenix-like from the ashes of demolition.

The rebuilt Casartelli building is six months from completion, and now looks much as it did in its heyday.

It was pulled down soon after the ECHO's Stop the Rot initiative was launched, becoming the symbol of the campaign to save some of the city's most historic sites.

Three years ago it was revealed that a multi-million pound shopping and apartment complex would be built on the Hanover Street site and the new building's design would pay tribute to the original grade II listed warehouse.

The scheme includes a 7,000sq ft ground floor shopping area, 31 luxury two-bedroom apartments, five two and three-bedroom penthouse suites, and under-ground parking.

Dylan Jones of architects Atelier 2, who are working on behalf of Liverpool Property Holdings, said: "I believe there's going to be a photographic studio on site, and there will be another business too.

"The windows on the ground floor are a bit of a departure from the original building but it did have a shop front at that level.

"It was a shame to lose the original facade but I think the developers are very pleased with how it's looking."

The Casartelli was built in 1760 and the Italian Casartelli family ran their scientific instrument manufacturing business from the site.

It became a wine warehouse but fell into disuse, and plans for restoration in 1991 and 1999 fell through.

It was condemned in 2001 after engineers found they would have to remove all the brickwork above the ground floor to replace a rotten beam.
