I agree. Such a pity the developers never made more of this building and its potential to be something special.

Here is how it used to look until it was bombed during the blitz

It's crying out for extra floors to justify its huge footprint although it might be worth waiting until there’s a bit more money in the city to do it justice rather than bodge it.

Totally agree, this is where heritage lobby’s should focus, pushing for Berlin style reconstruction of buildings that are clearly half what they where.

This could be stunning if returned to its original form, perhaps as two hotels and some commercial space above the current arrangement.
Thoughts and ideas on the city:

Liverpool - A city that doesn't need to spoon feed, project or force just is.

Boss expansion...
Business & leisure...
Projected investment of £Bns+
1,000s of maitime companies employ 10s of 1,000s of staff with an annual turnover of £2.5bns+ / 15% of the Merseyside economy. The Super Port of Liverpool is expanding & with 150,000 ship movements a year, the River Mersey is the UK’s 3rd busiest estuary.
The Merseyrail network runs 700 services a day, the most intense of any in the UK apart from London Underground.
