It was the first time I've seen this up close. Walking down Pope Street on a Saturday with no other people about was a little eerie, surrounded by nothing but construction.

Not sure as they aren’t all showing for me either now but that is shocking too if it’s not.

Not sure why they're not showing. Not touched the post. It seems directly copying a few render links from a website & bypassing Flickr altogether is causing havoc lately. I'll log out and see which pics are at fault and upload to Flickr instead before editing the post.

Regarding that building Sefton is alluding to, I think that's The Foundry. Blandsville

For me, the fifth picture is Moreton House, the curvy one.

Totally forgot to upload these! Taken around 2 weeks ago.

First set from Camden St, they've done a fantastic job with the car park I must say, look excellent the brickwork here.









These were taken on Pope Street.







Morton Street. (Morton House)



Carver Street.



And finally the new walkway between Pope Street and Camden Street, this look fantastic at night with the LED Lights.



This whole development is excellent, hats off to Seven Capital!

I really hope the planned commercial element succeeds here, otherwise we'll have some very long "souless" streets around here!

I always make a point about stuff like this. I do dislike needlessly dead streets.

Nice if they could drop the curbs/widen pavements and plant some trees to encourage some nice cafes and shops here.

Exactly what these streets need, I really do like what Seven Capital are doing round here, but apart from a few commercial units earmarked on the odd street, it appears like they have totally overlooked any form of interactive or "interesting" public realm, some greenery surely must be in the works, you want these streets to be thriving and with regular activity, hope I'm wrong.
I'd hate to think these streets will remain empty, boring and with it potentially as "risky" at night as they are now.

I couldn't agree more. As much as I like the developments in the JQ, there is something rather barren about the streets. Rather moody and uninviting. Some attractive lampstands and greenery are needed to lift the appeal of the streets, otherwise, I fear that visitors will leave with a negative view.

Not like me to defend 7cap but you can’t really blame them for that. Retail should be within a defined area as defined by policy and so apart from a few units you were never going to get full streets of shops like a High Street or something.

Equally the council won’t adopt any greenery in the public highway so it’s unlikely that we will see any at any development in the city. If you do, it’s likely that it’s provately maintained. Same goes for street lights which the Council will want to standardise to reduce its costs.

Well, that's one unappealing area then!!

Indeed. What I hope they have done(not sure as I never looked at the app in that much detail) is concentrate the units along one main pedestrian route so that you ge a Ludgate Hill type of area which allows the main bulk of pedestrians to walk along an animated street.

Having said that, there shouldn’t be many blank walls at ground level on this development so there should be activity from the resi units on the ground floors.

Had a walk along here yesterday, loads of activity going on for Saturday morning really shaping up, they've put some wide cut-throughs/gaps between Pope St and Carver St breaking it up giving it more of a 'block' feel, something I hadn't appreciated until now.
