    Default Littlewoods' grand art deco HQ wins new lease of life

    THE art deco Littlewoods building in Liverpool's Edge Lane is to be turned into a new hotel, apartment complex, retail space and commercial centre, it was announced last night.

    The scheme will be carried out by award-winning regeneration developers Urban Splash, the company that has already rescued the Matchworks at Garston and the former Liverpool Collegiate in Shaw Street.

    Liverpool Land Development Company, the public-private regeneration agency, announced the former Littlewoods Pools headquarters - which is owned by the Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) - will be restored by urban Splash as preferred developers.

    Thanks for that link.
    I see the Co-op isn't

    there.
    Nor the Forum/ABC cinema or any other cinemas.
    Nor Smart's in Bold Street or the Rolls-Royce showroom (now Oxfam) also in Bold Street.
    Nor

    the Telephone Exchange in Old Hall Street.
    I'd better stop there.

    I think

    I'd have no problems using a tripod in India Buildings, or any other of the touristy sites, where every other person is a snapper.
    Meanwhile, I'll carry

    on & get pictures of other buildings/areas which aren't done ad nauseum.
    I've been rather surprised at how personal some of the posts have become.

    I'm not familiar with that church, but

    I'm sure it's not Art Deco.

    We do have some fine Art Deco buildings in the area. The fairground at New Brighton is one of my favourites, of course

    along with John Moores' Littlewoods Pools building on Edge Lane. This is one of the finest examples in the country.

    I've got loads of local photos

    inc. some Deco buildings that I'm currently working to get online. I'll let you know when I've done so.

    I wasn't

    sure about that church, but I thought maybe it could have been because of it's shape.

    Yes, it is Art Deco.
    It opened in 1932 and was designed by Bernard A. Miller, who also

    designed St Christopher's in Norris Green which was built in 1930-33.
    They are both Listed Buildings.

    I

    stand corrected. There we have it. Early 1930s Art Deco. Its not as 'obvious' as some Art Deco buildings, but you can see when you look at the detail

    towards the top that it is in fact Art Deco.

    I'd love to see the interior of that building.

    This is a

    picture of the interior of St Columba's Church from David Lewis' book "The Churches of Liverpool" (The Bluecoat Press, 2001).
    As you say, it's not too

    obvious, but the curves and the ceiling are giveaways.

    The Vernons building at Aintree was

    also art-deco.
    Passed it on the train yesterday and saw that only the central tower remains.
