    Exclamation HUMYAK HOUSE Duke Street

    HUMYAK HOUSE, a warehouse near the reconstructed Casartelli Building, has been listed as part of the ongoing review of Liverpool's World Heritage Site.

    The Duke Street warehouse, which has been given a Grade II listing, has survived relatively unspoiled since it was built in 1864 and represents a typical mercantile warehouse of the mid-Victorian period.

    It retains its distinctive jigger loft, complete with winding gear and its cast iron window shutters.

    Internally cast iron spiral staircases and columns supporting its heavy-duty timber floor structure survive intact.

    Taken together these features give the warehouse its significant historic and architectural interest that justified its inclusion on the national List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.

    Although close to the site of the Old Dock of 1715 – the city's, and the world's, first commercial enclosed wet dock – Humyak House represents a much later redevelopment from the time when Liverpool had reached its ascendancy as a world trading port.

    It is typical of the smaller warehouses still being built at that time, in contrast to the huge bonded warehouse complexes such as the Albert Dock.

    Cllr Berni Turner, executive member for the environment and historic environment champion, said: “This is the latest building in the World Heritage Site to be listed as part of the continuing review of buildings there.

    “It is further proof of the success we are having in providing additional protection to significant buildings.”

    I like this building.
    It has a Dutch style about it.
    It's certainly distinctive and it comes as a surprise that it wasn't already Listed.

    BTW. 1864 places it comparitively early, not late as said.
