Good pics, Martin. The weather's been really good for taking pics this week. The Circle 109 pic looks like it could be summer. I'll be trying to take a few tomorrow, where it'll probably be cloudy and miserable.

More development and regeneration for Duke St/Parr St, next to the new apartments being built on the old NCP/Carwash site.

These are to be renovated, and a new 5 storey residential development built behind on Parr St.



See planning details here

I could be wrong, but remember something about one of these buildings being an important, historical Club many moons ago, something to do with America.

In fact iv'e just found this on a search,

Interesting Liverpool-American civil war info


and it's actually this building 153 Duke St

Listed building will be transformed.


A CONSTRUCTION company has secured a £500,000 contract to transform a listed building in the heart of Liverpool city centre.

Liverpool-based Humes Building Contracts will refurbish the Grade II listed Georgian building in Duke Street. Eleven apartments will be built above the ground floor shop-front of the Ray Ross Print Factory, making sure many of the building's original features are not lost.

There will be a new entrance to the apartments from Duke Street, with a garden and second entrance at the back leading to the rest of the apartments from Henry Street.

English Heritage registered 96 Duke Street as a Grade II listed building after a planning application was put into the council.

No photos that I can find, but I think this proves that its finally off the ground.

From BigDig website...

Seel St
From Monday, 27th February this will be reduced to a single lane with temporary traffic signals for 50 weeks

Which links in nicely with the timeframe detailed below...

Concert Steps Phase III
A major development by Frenson Limited which will see a building at 25-27 Seel Street refurbished with a three storey glazed extension.

It will house shops, offices and apartments. The development also involves the creation of a pedestrian route from Fleet Street to Seel Street. New pedestrian routes will provide better linkage to the city centre and surrounding area. The new access will be beneficial for the residential development and the retail, business and commercial developments.

The extensive development is part of a continued investment in the Ropewalks area of the city and will contribute heavily to the regeneration of this area. Not only will this development make use of otherwise redundant resources but it will also contribute positively to the public spaces in the area, the environment and local economy.

Businesses in the area will have a greater confidence in themselves and the area through the improved safety of the locality, the increased trade from new visitors into the area, returning locals and residents of the newly built accommodation.

Road closures and pedestrian footpath closures are to be kept to a minimum in order to maintain 'business as usual' throughout the duration of the works. Although the works will cause disruption they will be beneficial to the area in the long run owing to a sustained increase in spending.

Work is due for completion in Summer 2007.
