Info from: Liverpool's World Heritage Site

Warehouse on North Side of Stanley Dock

1852-5
Grade II*

This warehouse differs from all the other Hartley warehouses in that it is built of plain brickwork with only a few sandstone dressings.

It is five storeys high with a basement and now has 20 bays. Its south side is recessed at ground level behind a colonnade of cast-iron Doric columns, located immediately adjacent to the quayside.

The north side has 6 loading bays. The windows have segmental heads and small-paned iron casements. The building exhibits a strong overall design through its powerful, yet simple and repeated elements.

The remaining hydraulic machinery, which is mostly in the basement is different from that found in the south warehouse and has an interesting arrangement of cast iron conduits to allow the control chains to be operated from the vaults.

A post-war addition, constructed in 1953 to replace bomb damage, consists of a reinforced concrete single-storey building with a shell roof.

Stanley dock looks like a film set. In that first image it looks like venice on steroids! Liverpool has got more character than any other english city for me. Easily the second city of england.

It has been used in films, Captain America was the last one I can think of, Peaky Blinders was also filmed there.

Great thread guys. From those pictures you can clearly see how much potential Liverpool has to build itself one of Europe's greatest skylines.

However, I'm not 100% sold on that bridge proposal above...

Hopefully this year there will be a planning application for the first significant change to the skyline in years, we'll get there in the end.

The bridge is way out on the outskirts so it won't affect the skyline in any way.

Apologies for my missing photos. I've been re-organising my photobucket library. As I gradually re-organise, I'll re-post them.

University of Liverpool’s £90m project under way

Work has started on the University of Liverpool’s project to build a £90m student village in the south of the city. The scheme will see new halls of residence built and existing facilities renovated on the university’s Greenbank site in Mossley Hill.

The work is part of a £250m masterplan to upgrade and rebuild campuses across Liverpool. Under the student village proposals the number of rooms available in Greenbank will increase by 40%. There will also be new sports facilities and catering areas.
