Wirral is one of the 5 boroughs which make up Liverpool's metro area; Liverpool, Sefton, Wirral, Knowsley and St Helens. Wirral would be like Brooklyn to Manhattan.

£200m Liverpool Central Village development could create up to 3000 jobs - watch the latest fly-through here
Dec 2 2010

LIVERPOOL'S £200m Central Village redevelopment will create up to 3000 jobs over the next three years, its developer has said.



North West based developer Merepark said 1000 construction jobs and then 2000 permanent roles will be needed for the scheme.

Central Village is set to transform six acres of land behind Liverpool Central Station, Renshaw Street and Bold Street. The scheme also includes the complete refurbishment of the Lewis's building and the adjacent Watson building, as well as extensive work to Liverpool Central Station.

Cllr Joe Anderson, Leader of Liverpool City Council, said: “I’m really excited about this news which heralds a brighter future for this area of the city centre.

"The jobs which will be created are a significant boost for Liverpool.”

Merepark also released a showreel of the plans, which highlights the changes at Central Station, the first ‘inside-look’ at the refurbished Lewis’s building, and the plaza which will lead onto the six-screen Odeon cinema.

Liverpool Waters 'could threaten heritage status

Plans to develop Liverpool's waterfront could threaten its status as a World Heritage Site, it has been claimed.

Peel Holdings is planning to build a series of high-rise buildings including offices, shops and apartments in its £5.5bn Liverpool Waters scheme.

The government said there was considerable concern the proposals may have an impact on the heritage status.

It said a team from Unesco's World Heritage committee would visit the city in the autumn to monitor the plans.

It is expected to look at planning procedures and its impact on the area.

Child-inspired design for Alder Hey Hospital in Springfield Park released by BDP

http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com...pload_id=19855

As a specialist hospital, Alder Hey provides 275,000 episodes of care to children and young people every year. It is one of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospitals with a national and international reputation as a Centre of Excellence for children with cancer, heart, spinal and brain disease. However, this outstanding care is currently being provided in buildings which are almost 100 years old and are not fit for providing modern day services.

The new hospital will be built in Springfield Park, next door to the current site. Once the building is constructed the existing Alder Hey will be demolished and turned into a replacement park. The new Alder Hey will therefore sit right in the heart of the park, surrounded by green space which can be seen from almost every window.

The new hospital will have a floor area of 60,000 sq m and will have 270 beds, including 48 critical care beds for patients in ICU, HDU and Burns. There will be six standard wards with 32 beds. Each ward will have two four bed bays and 24 single rooms on each ward. That means the majority of children will have their own room with en-suite facilities, improving patient and family privacy and dignity. The unique design will also ensure that the majority of bedrooms have park views and patients will have easy access to play areas on and outside their ward. There will also be 16 operating theatres, four for day-case surgery and 12 inpatient theatres. The new development will also include a multi-storey car park with 1,200 spaces, 200 more than the current site.

Programme Director David Powell explains: “Moving next door to Springfield Park will mean the building can blend into its surroundings and become a hospital in the park. There will be views of the park from most windows and every child will be able to see green space / nature from their room. The development will also give the local community a new and better park than what they have now. Along with much better facilities for our patients, there will also be better facilities for parents and families including more parents’ rooms, plenty of gardens and a 150 seat restaurant facility.”

Lead Architect for the project at BDP, Benedict Zucchi said: “Our design concept has not only captured the imagination of children, parents and staff but has also demonstrated itself as a flexible and effective approach, which has evolved through a significant number of user engagement meetings and allowed us to fine-tune the clinical layouts and optimise adjacencies to an unprecedented level.”

I'be never seen a selection of poor and second rate projects! What a missed opportunity for a city which hosts some of the best 19/20th century architecture in the country. Its new projects are appalling and disappointing, these second rate projects are approved despite their damage to the city and its heritage - the black coffins on the waterfront for example!
A much better website which exposes the truth of these new developments-
