Pall Mall, in Liverpool, is a new city district waiting to happen. It borders the city's business district and has a great feel:

I'm always willing to wait and see how a building works when it's completed as opposed to judging it on a render. It's a fantastic old building so I suppose it will be just fine, renders often look awkward and have no bearing on reality.

The restoration of the warehouses at Stanley Dock continues apace. Currently the 'south warehouse' is being restored, but work has already started on the monumental 'Tobacco Warehouse' - and apartments will soon be marketed.

The 'north warehouse' is now fully restored and is home to 'Titanic' hotel':

This victorian bridewell ( police station & lock-up) has recently been restored and converted to student apartments. It is looking really good:

I thought the day would never come when I'd finally see the Tobacco Warehouse redeveloped, this is going to be a fantastic new district when it's completed, our resident Peregrine Falcons will have to find a new home though.

The biggest warehouse is made up of 27 millions bricks and it's the biggest bonded brick warehouse in the world, it's a real beauty up close. I've waited forever to see this developed.

This is the larger context of this redevelopment. The tall, spiky towers are meant to provide a modern complement to similar turrets on surrounding buildings. The quality of the materials is great, I think:

Another from its Twitter feed.

It's interesting to see the effect the Runcorn coffer dam is already having on the sandbanks.
