Nice one Maggie

A couple of snippits of info we picked up during last weeks site visit;.......

First, discussions are underway between Grosvenor and Merseytravel about the apparent shortcomings of the new bus interchange. Extra draught screens are being considered also changing the way the interchange operates. At present passengers can only board a bus here, arriving passengers must leave at Duke St then the bus moves empty into the layover area below the Liver St MSCP. This set up is daft and will hopefully change.

Second, the Third anchor store ( site 5A ) may be SPLIT into two units !!

Nah leave it on. She said it was the Friends of The Mole society or whatever that was looking at the gates, not them themselves.

Bling Bling revealed (partly)

This is another of those I was never too sure of (everyone should take a leaf from Woody's book here, not to rely too much on images and renders) but having seen the part that is revealed, I think this building is fantastic. It's so unusual and different but not too overpowering of Hanover St. I feel sure that everyone who sees it will love it, it was certainly turning peoples heads this morning. My only concern is how will it weather?? I would think it needs to stay shiny.














The new crane down by the Strand, I think that makes 12 for PSDA.

Bling bling ..... I wasn`t really sure what I was expecting with this one - but I like it for it`s touch of the `Avant-Garde`.....

Good one Doug (as usual)

Of all the buildings in PSDA that Ive seen, this is the only one that is a "statement". The others look functional, which is no bad thing in itself, but I hope to see more original designs like this...

At least 3 other unique buildings to give a bit of spice to the development.

I'd like to see it all revealed before I make up my mind - especially as the gold part on the 4th picture reminds me of that dodgy amusement arcade on Skelhorne Street!

Steady on Woody, somehow I don't think highlights would suit you.
