Anyone know what is happening with Concert Steps. It says on the site it will open winter 2005, but I can't see that happening with no activity on the site. But I guess it is the same old story with Frenson...

Yeh - looks like a missed opportunity to me. could have well been just what concert square needs to expand on what it already offers. Maybe another developer will get involved in the future.

Some Ropewalks views taken this afternoon:

The Pierse Homes Cleveland Square development Cleveland Square side:


and the Henry Street side:


The Cassartelli practically complete at last. Appears they have let the ground floor to a photographic studio:


View down Henry Street. Quite a number of apartment blocks (new and conversions) under construction. The building on the left is the completed Cinamon building:


Circle 101 nearing completion. I like the blue but I'm a bit doubtful how long it will last in that condition given the damp staining evident on the Henry Street side:


A hair dressing salon and another restaurant (in the Community College) are the latest tendants of the East Village. Tower of Circle 101 staring down:


With the old catering college mostly demolished a new view of the Cathedral and Duke Street Terrace development has appeared. This will, of course, disappear when Elysian Fields starts construction:


Arthouse Square nearing completion:


The small courtyard in Arthouse Square should end up as another Campbell Square:

Work has begun today on the mixed use scheme on the bottom of Duke Street, next to the old kitchen appliance shop that was converted into an art gallery (Polished-T).

Diggers and workmen abound. Shouldnt be too long til it starts to creep up out of the ground.

Taken from Liverpool Vision Development Summary:
27-35 Duke Street
Demolition of existing structures and erection of 7-storey building plus penthouse, 78 unit residential development and commercial use in basement and ground floor."

That's the big cleared site opposite Campbell Sq just up the road from the Casartelli. That is a big modern development, great.

Just next door to this 17-25 Duke St, the site with blue hoardings in the distance.

The Pierse Homes development in Cleveland Square. They have made a very good job of restoring the old elevations, although I remember there was one building with a pediment to the roof that was demolished for the new development.

Anyone know if there are plans for more restaurants or retail on the ground floors at East Village? I reckon there is still a lot of unused space at the moment, which is a shame really. Il Forno and Sapporo seems to be very popular and the location just off Duke St is great.

I vaguely remember this derelict row of old buildings, this is a complete rebuild. Would have been good to see a before and after shot.

A new development on Henry st.
