    Nice pics Joe. I like the hotel, not so much the community centre though.

    Not strictly a new building, but a refurbished one.
    I like the Beetham Plaza. It was a 1960's office block now converted into bigger and better offices, also luxury apartments and restaurant.

    That's the way to do it. All we need is the Sandcastle made over.

    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

    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Well newish compared to some.

    This was the scene a few weeks ago. Location, the mirrored building on the corner of Leeds Street and Old Hall street taken just in case anyone tries to tell you there's a bank of computer operators sitting behind this glass looking out at you but you can't see them

    I've only ever seen this building with one of it's panels broken. There is such a thing called 'honesty in construction'. The glass building is a deceit. It's masonry blockwork behind the shiny glazed facade - well, on the lower storey at least. Maybe it's become inviting to those who throw bricks, as Shatterproof ruler's were to those of us in class?

    I'd prefer a tower of shipping containers than this wallpapered slab.

    No George, there are block walls behind every panel. If we were standing there I could throw a brick to demonstrate?

    New apartments built on Great Crosshall Street. These, on the corner of Standish Street are built on the site of Holy Cross Church and Presbytery and from where St. Patrick is said to have preached before going to Ireland. They stand side by side with flats built 5 decades earlier.

    These new apartments on Cunliffe Street replaced old derelict warehouses and breath new life into an area bereft of residential properties since the houses from nearby Vernon Street were demolished in the 1920s and 30s. The Premier Inn now stands in their shadow, Cunliffe Street could be passed by if you blinked and is situated between Cheapside and Vernon Street.

    Flats are the most depressing places to live,you're limited to what you can do in them ie if you're into woodwork you cannot have all sorts of power tools operating or banging,the ceilings/floors just echo any noise.

    I was surprised to see this occupied already when I passed it on the weekend, Windsor Court.
