I think the library was most likely judged to have been too divisive.....? I really like it myself.

Universities are certainly responsible for a high standard of new builds in recent times.

Here are a few images of the recently completed 'Crown Place' student residence scheme:










It is the little detailing and landscaping that makes all of the difference.

Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse | 476 Large Apartments | Retail | Bars | Proposed



This is phase three of this development and just to give you an idea of its size.

Quote:
Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse, is a grade II listed building and is the world's largest brick warehouse. Standing 125 feet (38 m) high, the building was, at the time of its construction in 1901, claimed to be the world's largest building in terms of area. The 14 storey building spans across 36 acres (150,000 m2) and its construction used 27 million bricks, 30,000 panes of glass and 8,000 tons of steel.

New Wheels Park | Everton Park | Proposed



This is one built in France

Quote:
New Wheels Park Commission for Everton Park by Koo Jeong A

Liverpool Biennial in partnership with Liverpool City Council, Liverpool Vision and Friends of Everton Park have commissioned leading South Korean artist Koo Jeong A to design a new wheels park for Everton Park. Subject to planning permission, this will be the last of four wheels parks produced and built in Liverpool as part of a citywide project.

In 2012, Koo Jeong A designed and built OTRO, a glow-in-the-dark skate park in France. In Everton, the artist has been working closely with the City Skaters community and young people to devise the wheels park, which will be made with luminous concrete to give it a glowing effect.

Sally Tallant, Director of Liverpool Biennial said: “We are thrilled to be working with such an established artist as Koo Jeong A in creating a new cultural destination for the city. The vision for the Wheels Park is for it to become a new public artwork for Liverpool which will bring an international audience to Everton Park.”

Koo Jeong A is known for her minimalist art installations. Since the early 1990s, the artist has worked in various media, making works that are seemingly casual and commonplace, yet at the same time remarkably precise and considered. Koo Jeong A often incorporates objects, still and moving images, audio elements, as well as stench within site-specific environments. Major solo exhibitions of her work include: Koo Jeong A: 16:07, Kunsthalle, Dusseldorf (2012); OTRO, Centre international d’art et du paysageIle de Vassivière, Vassivière (2011); Constellation Congress, Dia, USA (2010); Koo Jeong A, Aspen Art Museum, Aspen (2008); amongst others.

For this project, Koo Jeong A and her team have worked on an incredibly complex and unique design, to realise an exciting skateable wheels park for Everton. The artist is working collaboratively with Wheelscape Skateparks designers on the production and construction of the project.

The wider proposals for Everton Park include a series of walks – Five Pathways – created around the themes of food, art, lookout, activity and history. Regular events will be held to further attract people in to the park. The ambitious plans also include a Sky Pier visitor centre, gallery space and café with views across the city.

The park will be managed and maintained by The Land Trust, in conjunction with their community partners, the Friends of Everton Park. Alison Whitehead, Development Manager at The Land Trust said: “We’re really excited to be involved. Our role is to work with the Friends of Everton Park to involve skaters in the maintenance of the wheels park and ensure that it is open and managed for many years to come.”

The Wheels Park is expected to open in Easter 2015 and the whole project for Everton Park should be completed by summer 2015. It is part of the Mayor of Liverpool’s skate park ambition, which earlier this year saw the opening of Scargreen Recreation Ground in Norris Green. The park features state of the art ramps and slides, a play area, picnic tables and astroturf pitches.

Mayor Joe Anderson said: “We asked young people in the city what they wanted and they have really driven the agenda on skate parks. The plans for Everton Park are really exciting and I am sure will capture the imagination of the young people. Once again Liverpool is leading the way.”

Further sites for wheels parks include Dingle Bank and Otterspool.

Always good to see new leisure and retail developments but what uninspiring architecture, a slant here or there or a curve even would have worked wonders. Obviously i'm sure it'll be a commercial sucsess but it's shame it doesnt respond more to it's environment.

Just to note that Liverpool is one of my favorite city centres in Britain, it feels buzzy and is full of independant bars and shops that you don't always get elsewhere. Keep up the great work Liverpool.

One Park Lane | 10 - 16 Floors | 800 Flats | Offices | Bars | Restaurants | Proposed



The current proposal has been altered from when this render was produced.

Quote:
Plan for 800 flats around rice mill set for go-ahead
Huge scheme of 'sufficient high quality' to become reality


THE building of almost 800 apartments in an around Liverpool's historic Heap's rice mill is being recommended for the go-ahead at next week's meeting of the city's planning committee.

The 18th century mill, opposite Liverpool One, was originally earmarked for demolition as part of an earlier scheme proposed by Seychelles based developers One Park Lane.

Last minute intervention by English Heritage, who listed the mill to preserve it, meant the developers had to go back to the drawing board.

The revised scheme spares the mill, but will see a two-floor rooftop extension. Critics have slammed the revised scheme, saying although the old mill will be preserved it will be overwhelmed by modern high rise blocks.

The scheme will see 123 apartments built within the rice mill. Surrounding it will bee three high-rise blocks, of 10, 11 and 14 storeys. Those blocks will provide 194 apartments plus 200 serviced apartments. There will also be space for commercial and leisure uses, bars, restaurants, a gym and offices.

One Park Lane, in a separate application, wants to develop the site adjoining Heaps, once occupied by the merchant navy outfitters, Greenbergs.

Planning officers are also recommending the committee approve those plans. The scheme will see two sister blocks, ranging from 10 to 16 storeys, providing 264 apartments and commercial units.

Both sites, described by developers as “one of the last prime waterfront sites in Liverpool city centre”, fall within the World Heritage Site buffer zone and are zoned as industrial sites within the city's planning blueprint, the Unitary Development Plan.

Originally the two blocks on the Greenberg site would have towered to 20 storeys, but after concerns were raised by council planning officers as well as English Heritage, the height has been scaled down. One fear raised by English Heritage was taller blocks would obscure views from the waterfront of the Anglican Cathedral.

Planners say although the two schemes are separate, it is crucial they are considered together in terms of how they look and their cumulative impact.

The head of planning says the design and massing of the development is of sufficient high quality and appropriate to the area. The committee will meet on Tuesday to make its decision, and with a strong recommendation for approval, it seems likely the go-ahead will be given.
