    Default Liverpool One Shopping Area [Completed Phases]

    AS A RESULT OF THE PARADISE STREET/ LIVERPOOL ONE DEVELOPMENT.

    STREET NAMES:

    Wall Street on the old walls of Liverpool Castle.

    Custom House Place, formerly Custom House Lane.

    Thomas Steers Way has been called “Discovery Axis” during the development period.

    Paradise Place is a broad extension, off to one side, of Paradise Street.

    The Compass where Grosvenor is considering inlaying the four points of the compass in the paving.

    Keys Court will feature a public walkway through the building to link Church Street and School Lane.

    The Zig Zag is the covered space four storeys above Paradise Street.

    The Terrace is effectively an extension of the Park, across the bridges over South John Street.

    In Chavasse Park there will be a memorial to the Chavasse Family in a small “copse” at the top of the park will be an informal space that can be used for various arranged and impromptu events.

    The Pool will tell the story of the birth of modern Liverpool, from its medieval shoreline, to the Castle on the sandstone outcrop and the emergence of The Pool – the first non-tidal commercial dock.

    Kenyon’s Steps is the walkway along the northern side of Chavasse Park.

    David Lewis Street named after Lewis’s founder who had shops in Bold Street and Ranelagh Street.

    Some of the names set to be recognised as integral parts of Liverpool include The Bling Building, The Zig Zag and The Terrace.

    New streets and buildings will both hark back to the city’s past and point to a bold future.

    The £1bn project will open up the heart of the city centre improving pedestrian access to iconic destina-tions such as The Albert Dock and Chavasse Park. Once new names have been taken in, navigating the centre will be a simpler task, accord-ing to Grosvenor, the developers.

    The project is developing new and existing streets in order to maintain the historic identity of the city.

    “Wall Street”, for example, is named after the walls of Liverpool Castle and also the historical trad-ing and business links between Liverpool and America. Thomas Steers Way is named after England’s first major civil engineer and form-er city mayor who designed and built The Old Dock – the world’s first wet dock.

    In the early 1700s he built several docks in the city as well as St George’s Church on the site of the Liverpool Castle.

    Blundell Lane is the courtyard between the new wing of the Blue-coat, BBC Radio studios and Friends Meeting House. It is named after sea captain Bryan Blundell who built Bluecoat Chambers as a residential charity school for poor children.

    Regenerated streets include South John Street, which will become the main high street within the Liver-pool One development. It will boast two tiers of retail on both sides as well as a terrace overlooking the newly landscaped Chavasse Park.

    The Zig Zag four storeys above Paradise Street features extraordin-ary stair, escalator and bridge links from Paradise Street, South John Street and the Park.

    I would have said it was because there was already a Williamson St and Square in the city centre and the council are relucant to allow too many variations of a theme as it can cause confusion for the emergency services. But as they are allowing Blundell Lane and Paradise Place then they havent been too strict on this theme so it is a shame he hasnt been honoured.

    Not if they called it "Joseph Street" or "Mole Street".

    It was good, Ged, but I don't really like crowds so had to flee screaming in the end!

    Is that red carpeted area South John st, it looks very narrow and claustaphobic, and that bloke will never fit in that lift.

    Excellent, ADW.

    I took a few snaps.
    Will post some.

    Paradise Street is spacious enough, but the rest is very claustrophobic.
    (I hate crowds, too).

    Difficult to get good shots of the 'architecture'.

    I'm just uploading mine now. it was chocker when we arrived about half 12. hubby enjoyed the fashion show (women in lingerie)

    he was really impressed with the place. which for him is summat.

    the fountain is fab. couldn't see the old dock wall too well as the light was reflecting off the top of the glass, but at least it's been left untouched.

    the bridge between the Q park and John Lewis is bit odd it moves as buses go underneath.

    overall I think it's fantastic. it's amazing to see so many new buildings and not as much glass as I thought there would be.

    the workies should be very proud
