im with bio, i love the reid design. its a great high quality building. and yes i accept that this is a conservation area but i do sort of wish there was more negotiation with the council and developers to try and better inegrate it with the surrounding instead of starting from scratch and coming up with the current thing!

Hi I also noticed this building work today, on Caroline Street, the one opposite the office block is massive and includes some listed frontages further towards great hampton street

Also there is development work going on on Livery Street with the old foundry being converted to apartments and on Henrietta Street at the side of the Newhall Square development...plus the mint, love this part of town

and the derelict building by the clock on frederick street has been refurned, the one with the green bricks

Love that building with the green bricks - it also goes back a long way too.

Spencer Point looks like it's about to happen. No activity on site but I did notice some fences have gone up.

This is one of my favourite new build in the city.

Spencerpoint does look nice - and we need a lot more of these good quality small schemes around the JQ and city centre at large...

does anyone know if spencerpoint is under construction, as the webpage is confusing, one section says ready for autumn 2007 and another autumn 2006....either way it should be under construction ?

Another good-looking not-so-small scheme for the JQ gone in this week:

C/02006/07/FUL

90-104 Constitution Hill/Northwood Street

93 bed hotel with 38 basement parking spaces, retaining listed frontage.

Baker Goodchild Architects, Great Hampton Estates developer.

Looks fab IMO (although these aren't terribly descriptive...)

Own Tramstop too. I bet they'll be popular!

Looks like they are retaining an old building/facade? Like it.

C/02154/07/CAC

Great Hampton Estates have applied to knock down what I think is/was Kentex clothing warehouse at 90-104 Constitution Hill. From Google Earth I think this is a bog-standard warehouse.

It seems that GHE are pulling their socks up and pushing the area for a bit of a spruce up. Watch this space (literally) for further developments!

There is something of London Road in Liverpool about those buildings.

I think it's the odd bay windows, and those roundral thingys.
