Superb pics Juxtapol. Those abandoned warehouses, in their abandoned areas remind me a bit of the Bronx or something- their old bricks look incredibly nostalgic. That pic of Stanley Dock could easily be a scene from an American gangster movie. I really love these buildings- they are unbelievably huge and impressive. It's also really sad how they've ended up empty and abandoned when they quite clearly used to play such an important role. I hope these buildings are kept and turned into something new in the future. - what's the latest on Stanley Dock?

That interesting warehouse off parliament street is known as the buddleia project.

Heres a link to what they're up to. Could do with spending afew quid sorting it out externally thats for sure, but she's a beaut.

Ah...buddleia project, thats the one.

Thanks for the link, :cheers:

Had a little look, and shows that they are going to spend £12Million to redevelop the site and other listed buildings in the area.

Grrrrreat :)

You wont believe the amount of Liverpool Docks that have been used in TV and Film productions:

Al's Lads in Particular

David Copperfield (BBC)

the list goes on...

I'm Eagerly awaiting some positive action from Kitgrove the developers. They were supposed to be refurbishing the Jessey Hartley warehouse first, and demolishing some 1950s additions. Then tackling the larger Stanley Warehouse later. The plans they released as shown in the Echo looked great, but it's all gone a bit quiet...!

when are they gonna get turned into appartments?
Having said that property is quite cheap in Liverpool so maybe it's not cost effective?
Some parts of liverpool are relatively cheap, but some apartments in the Albert dock warehouses sell for around 1/2M.

Have a look here to see the price of some developments in Liverpool

Great pictures. I love these old warehouses. Always a shame when they are threatened with demolition, we've lost way too many of these old gems. Brilliant that Stanley dock warehouse is being renovated.

Converting these old warehouses into apartments seems to be very popular, but I'd rather they were used more for mixed use schemes, like the Albert Dock and Stanley Dock (If it ever gets done...). The idea of allowing artists to use them is good, they'd make good galleries or museums.

Wouldn't mind living in one though. Great buildings these. :)

Bust m8, just a bit of brain(?)storming on my part after reading your post. What does the Forum think about having a "Potential Development Area" thread?
