    Thumbs up

    Alright fellas

    Pleased this has now been resolved. I have always been pissed off that the 2nd proposal got the knock back but am warming to the idea. It's a massive project and a massive investment that is great news. **** loads of jobs and will transform a virtually unknown part of town.

    Still hate the interferring *****s though.

    This development will be great for that part of the city as it will just bring everyting together; that is all the Paradise Street and the Lime Street Gateway work.

    One problem though, which I am unsure will be resolved, Central Station is the main station for the retail centre of the city. Consequently it is very busy and is infact running over capacity. Now, do these plans take a possible upgrade/expansion of Central Station into consideration?

    THE developers behind the £160m Central Village scheme in Liverpool have acquired

    additional sites in nearby Bold Street to "book-end" the huge project.


    Merepark and Ballymore have acquired 21-25 Bold

    Street
    from Legal and General for an undisclosed sum, as part of a plan to enhance the experience at the 600,000 sq ft Central Village

    scheme.

    Plans for the two-storey building include opening up the interior and adding another floor as well as giving the exterior a modern glass

    frontage.


    The building is currently occupied by Greggs, Eddie Rocket's and Resurrection who will continue to trade as normal. The Subway site on the

    corner of Newington and Bold Street, which will provide pedestrian access directly into Central Village's public square, has also been acquired.

    Merepark

    director Richard Peel said: "Our aspiration is to continue the momentum being generated in the Bold Street area and these acquisitions will help us to do

    that."Enhancing these gateways will connect Central Village with Bold Street's more established retail offer."

    Merepark and Ballymore added the former

    Wades furniture store at 9-19 Bold Street, which backs onto the Central Village site, to its portfolio at the end of 2005.

    This has now been refurbished

    into three retail units - home to fashion retailer Drome and Costa Coffee. American bar chain Telo has also confirmed a 15,000 sq ft letting.

    Work is

    expected to start in early 2007 on the 25-storey tower and a 20-storey mid-rise building, nicknamed Spencer and Hepburn, after

    film legends Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn. Two nine-storey and one five-storey buildings will sit alongside.

    The development will be phased

    over four years.

    This in my opinion is one of the best developments happening here at the moment,I can't wait for them to get on site and get this one moving.

    They sort of remind me of the Unity tower but without the cuboid penthouse on the top.

    One of the benefits (?) of getting older is that you remember earlier schemes that never got past the planning stage.
    Round about 1969 there were plans for a new cinema behind Central Station, and there have been other schemes since.
    I love the first tall glass tower, but I'm not so keen on the two smaller replacements.
    I never was keen on Unity right from the start when the first drawings appeared in "Your Move" (but I love the Beethams).

    I've said it before, so it's no secret, but I think the Atlantic Tower Hotel still looks better than them.
    Having said that, now that they are completely finished (I think) I'll look at them again.

    I always like the Atlantic Tower, it was the best designed hotel of that era, would you believe though that people complained at the time that it didn't fit in with the rest of the area.

    DIY retailer Rapid Hardware is considering selling its paint shop on Renshaw Street to the property company behind the Central Village development.

    The hardware store, which has struggled in recent years due to the effects of Liverpool’s Big Dig roadworks on trading, is in early stage talks with property group Merepark. Although the price under discussion has not been disclosed, the property, on the corner of Newington Street and Renshaw Street, could be worth millions of pounds.

    The post-war concrete and glass store building would be demolished to make way for access to Merepark’s Central Village shops and residential towers scheme. continues.....

    Work will start this year on the revised 25-storey and 20-storey mid-rise buildings, nicknamed Spencer and Hepburn, after film legends Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn – she was the taller of the two. Two nine-storey and one five-storey buildings will sit alongside.

    All the original parts of Central Station went years ago, didn't they?
    Only the Underground Merseyrail remains.
    I'm happy to be corrected because I don't know if there's anything left in that large triangle at the back.

    I'd like to see enormous "muriels" decorating the backs of these buildings. It'd be better than leaving them as they are. I suppose they could use railway themes in this area.
    This could be done on boring gable ends of terraced houses as well a la belfast without the bigotry. We have talented graffitti artists in the city (apparently) who would be happy to oblige legally for a change.
