A very significant building, 'The Old Blind School' ( 1851) is currently being converted in a mixed use scheme. An independent coffee shop has already opened in the building, and soon there will be a new Gastro-pub, and a Pizza Express. Following that will be an extension of the adjacent Hope Street hotel into a section of the upper level. This building sits in a prime location opposite the city's Philharmonic Concert Hall in the city's Georgian Quarter:

The former 'Blind School' :















'92 Degrees' Coffee:

A show home for the Tobacco Warehouse Apartments development at Stanley Dock in North Liverpool will open soon, according to the developer behind the scheme.

Stanley Dock Properties has revealed what the inside of the apartments will look like once the building, believed to be the world’s largest brick warehouse, is converted into 503 one, two and three-bedroom apartments as part of a wider £130m project to transform the area.

Covering 32 acres and 13 storeys, the new apartments will include mezzanine floors in each of the properties, while an interior section will be cleared for an internal courtyard for residents. The top floor of the development will include luxury penthouse apartments with river views.

The basement of the historic warehouse, which was built in 1901 and is Grade II listed, will be turned into a car park for residents and the ground floor will be used for offices and retail. Enabling works on the scheme are underway and a show home will be launched soon.

The apartments are the latest development to take place at the Stanley Dock Village site. The Titanic Hotel and Rum Warehouse conference venue launched last year and have held a number of high profile events including Liverpool property industry event, the Cannes Do.

Some interesting aerial views of The Philharmonic Court development ( shown above). A really interesting perspective on this particular corner of the city's georgian area:

Is it just me me or is Liverpool more cultured than other cities in the UK? In most British cities steel and glass boxes seem to be all the rage, whereas in Liverpool the city seems concerned to take care of its heritage, bringing back old buildings to life. Small scale sympathetic development fitting nicely into the old streets, and larger ones are built not to serve the financial sector but the city and its culture.

Don't be fooled by what?

If you are referring to Liverpool's georgian area? Then no, most British cities don't have anything comparable. Certainly not in terms of scale and size of area. And certainly not Birmingham.

London, Bath, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and to an extent Newcastle, yes.....

I don't think you can have visited Canning in Liverpool?

I think you are largely right in that observation. Although, of course, there are still a lot of older buildings awaiting new uses; and I'm sure many would like to see a few more shiny, glass boxes too, and for some more new office developments. But not at the expense of heritage, for sure. Well, not for me anyway. There is no greater thrill than when a grand old building comes back to life.

In this rather' artistic' photo ( maximum zoom.....) you can see the crane and rigs of the Liverpool 2 construction site. Liverpool 2 is the new post-panamax container terminal that is being built alongside the city's existing container terminal at Seaforth. When complete it will be able to handle some of the world's largest containers:

Did you even read what he wrote? He said about bringing old buildings back to life. Not what type of architectural buildings. All UK cities are bringing 'old' buildings back to life. That's what the reply stated. Don't get your knickers in a twist over a factual reply.

to be fair brum, despite whatever misunderstanding, just let liverpool have the compliment!

i get the impression the scouse forum members are used to defending the city as there seems to never be any shortage of people to put it down/ play down any compliments it may receive.

Your post was just a 'sour grapes' type of post. And this further response confirms your hostility. I'm quite familiar with Mr Bricks, thanks, and I happen to know where he's coming from.

Sour grapes?? Educating people and pointing out the obvious is what places like this are all about. Are you saying Liverpool is the only city in the UK Bringing redundant historical buildings back to life?? Don't try and defend any argument or debate of such sort. It would be nonsense. Not sour grapes.

I was on this thread because I like the progress of ALL UK cities. That's why I was pointing out that ALL UK cities have the same type of regeneration happening.Nothing negative against Liverpool in the slightest which I respect in terms of urbanism and redevelopment of such vast swathes or previously uninteresting areas of such a great city.

You are creating something out of nothing. You used the words " don't be fooled". Nobody is being fooled, or trying to fool anyone.

The new 'Liverpool Royal' hospital is due to open in summer 2017. When complete, the old hospital will be demolished to make way for a new bio-campus and a public park/garden:

I hope it's this building that your saying will be demolished because it's the most ugly thing I ever seen.
