A few shots taken earlier
I'd love to live there...
Great pics Dave, hows the L1 developemnt going along, there hasn't been any action for months. Feels like months anyways.
Looking good... anything moving in the rice mill yet?
I was that Paul, didn't get a pic unfortunately but good too see it going, once it happens there's no stopping them!
The Santa Dash tomorrow should take runners past it, I'll try and grab a pic then.
Sefton street/Coburg dock area:
I only managed to get a couple of pics...probably gone now. This was how they looked Friday. Further up the road, Harry Ramsdens is having some clearing out...workmen were smashing-up the kids play area/removing some stuff into skips. Could well go sometime in the near future.

Mad to see Park lane without Greenbergs!
Made up that whole area is now seeing some decent development. Hopefully it will be well planned and fit into the whole plan for the city. Love seeing all the development but sometimes I worry at the scale of so much speculative investment happening side by side at the same time without any reference to any sort of city masterplan. Hopefully they will all mesh together ok. Having said that, the same things that worries me give an amazing buzz of anticipation. An exciting time to be living in our city. (hopefully someone will now have the bottle to plan for the replacement of those nasty out of place (but well meaning) suburban estates built off Park Lane and on the other side of town by Clarence street and Holy Cross with something more in keeping with a city centre)

Er....sorry! I only lent on the barrier and the whole bloody lot went down, officer!
Liverpool! Liverpool! Liverpool!
DEVELOPERS behind the city's biggest private residential scheme are being told they must make 15% of the homes family-sized.
Restrictions on how the Baltic Triangle can be used have been drawn up, and include conditions about creating a public area and limits on the scale of the buildings.
Windsor Group, the main developer in the area, has submitted two planning applications but will now submit revised plans early next year.
Windsor's scheme is part of a massive redevelopment of an area of land immediately adjacent to Kings Dock and the Baltic Fleet pub.
The L1 project comprises three blocks of luxury apartments. First phase is worth £50m and the second £270m.
Wanted to climb one of the L1 cranes, but they're all locked! The bottom of the building site is flooded, so obviously nobody's been doing any work in there recently.
Six weetabix with cold milk, Max!
Been years since I ate a nice weetabix.
I mostly have bacon for Breakfast or sometimes eggs.
Gididi Gididi Goo.
You might have a point there.Are you sure? It looks like the Vermont Tower to me which you just posted on another thread.
THE future of a £50m luxury Liverpool flats scheme is in doubt after almost six months of inactivity at the Baltic triangle site.
Known as L1, the Windsor Group development was hit by two stoppages last year due to contract disputes between Windsor and its builder, Laing O’Rourke.
In August Laing O’Rourke removed almost 200 builders from the site in the latest row, believed to have been over the timing of payments by the developer.
Last September Windsor part-owner Roger Darwin said he was confident a deal could be worked out and work could recommence.
But the site has been in limbo since then with no prospect of a return to normal construction work. continues....
I've often wondered whats going on (or not) there when I driven past lately, had thought things hadnt got any higher
At my desk in work I sit facing those cranes and for the past ?? months (been so long I can't remember), apart from getting blown by the wind, they've not moved. In the last couple of days, two of the four cranes have been taken down. Not a good sign
