Its an extension of the adjacent building further down Bridport Street, known as Bridpoint. Basement car park, ground floor offices and apartments above. Don't hold your breath for this one to be finished, the first bit took forever.
Anyone know what this development is? Just to the left of the Tool Hire centre on the junction with London Road and Seymour Street (although it's actually on St Vincent Street.
im having a play with London road for the design journal, definetly could do with smartening up from the new tesco through to commutation row. Some massing and density would not go a miss.London Road has come a long way in 3 - 4 years. The bottom end just needs smartening up, good infill, and something fantastic done with the Odeon building. Longer term, I have high hopes for the area between Lord Nelson Street and Islington and all the way up to Moss Street.
I agree that there is massive potential in London Road, but there is also a huge social problem and perception issue too. I think many developers have their eye on the area, but everyone seems to be waiting for someone else to bite the bullet and take a gamble. Once that initial investment comes I think the place will take off. The arrival of the new Tesco could be the spark that is needed, time will tell - I just hope it happens sooner rather than later for the sake of the area and the people who live there and use it.I've always wondered why a big hotel company hasn't taken an interest in London Rd.
There's plenty of run down buildings at the bottom end that could be redeveloped and you'd have the theatre, St Georges Hall, the museum, Walker art gallery & Lime St station all within a stones throw.
Agreed, especially as it is in the vicinity of both the coach and rail stations where people arrive in the city.London Road has come a long way in 3 - 4 years. The bottom end just needs smartening up.
The building under construction isn't a sister to the one of the left, known as Alina House. Its a sister to the one behind it, further down Bridport Street, known as Bridpoint. I'm afraid that one is red brick and can only assume that the new one will be also.Cheers Howie. The building next to it is actually one of my favorite new builds in the area. It's small and unasuming but is well proportioned, has some nice high class finishing touches and is a great example of how to do a small scale development without resorting to evil red bricks. Looking forward to seeing the sister building finished, which looks to be slightly taller.
:lol: Show em the worst first, that's what I always say. Let 'em see the real Liverpool, before they get sucked away on a yellow amphibian bus into a fantasy world were everyone hums Beatles tunes and looks like they're from 1968..Christ sakes Tom, do you want your guests to think that Liverpool is a complete shitheap?
