    Default Buddleia Project Grade 2 Listed Warehouses



    WORK on transforming a derelict listed warehouse into a cultural and business centre is set to start this week.

    The 6m Buddleia project will be open in time for the city's 800th birthday in 2007.

    It is based in five grade II listed buildings at the corner of Parliament Street and Jamaica Street.


    ADVERTISING




    The 150,000sq ft centre will include room for voluntary organisations, social enterprise and business opportunities, and heritage, culture and the arts with galleries, exhibition and performance spaces.

    It is being set up by the national Novas charity which works with disadvantaged communities and the centre's aim is to encourage the talents of Liverpool's black and minority ethnic community.

    The 6m Buddleia building - a key building in the ECHO's Stop the Rot campaign - will form a cultural and business centre to encourage the talents of Liverpool's black and ethnic communities. more

    There was a picture of this the other night in the echo showing what the regenerated version will look like and it looked quite good,it's good to see old buildings find a new use.

    Default Buddleia

    Buddleia is a great name, because it is nearly always the Buddleia that is seen growing out of disused buildings.
    Not always disused

    buildings - there is one growing out of the top of the Empire Theatre.

    This stuff grows like

    wildfire in Liverpool.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    I was

    looking through the photos I took of the 'Buddleia Building' and noticed the zig-zag brickwork on the front - quite unusual I thought. I see they're

    moving on with the project quite fast, the scaffolding has moved now and windows are going in. Just glad I managed to get some photos in there before they

    started

    work.
