    Default Littlewoods Building on Edge Lane

    Plans to turn an iconic Art Deco building in Liverpool into a 60m complex of offices and apartments have been unveiled.


    ^^Not my best picture^^

    Developers Urban Splash have been appointed by Liverpool Land Development Company (LLDC) to redevelop the former Littlewoods building on Edge Lane.

    Dubbed "the digital village", it will include 250 apartments, offices, shops and a 100-bed hotel.

    A glass structure is planned to stand at the top of the famous clock tower.

    'Fascinating history'

    It was built in 1938 by the Moores brothers to house their football pools business.

    The tower has unsurpassed views of Liverpool, the Wirral and the Welsh mountains.

    LLDC's Chief Executive Ian Hassall said: "The building has a fascinating history and deserves a new lease of life, creating new residential space and employment opportunities."

    Urban Splash have previously worked on The Matchworks in Liverpool, Fort Dunlop in Birmingham and the Smithfield Buildings in Manchester.

    Their managing director Bill Maynard said: "Our proposals will restore and enhance this much-loved building and our investment of over 60m will transform this area, making it a great place to live and work."

    The devil's in the detail. .

    07F/2160
    Former Littlewoods Building, 200 Edge Lane, Liverpool, L7

    1. Full planning permission - To demolish buildings, retaining the tower and facades of the west wing, and develop a five-storey residential scheme within the retained facades comprising 276 flats, together with alterations to existing access, landscaping, and associated external works. 2. Outline planning permission - To erect 4 no. commercial pavilion buildings, and retain and extend existing storage building at the S.E. corner of the site


    Interesting what they plan for the tower-they're gonna put a glass cap on the top of it and light it up from the inside so it looks a little like a lighthouse!

    I cannot see them getting approval to do anything like that *disgusting*
    littlewoods is an iconic building. not sure where that came from ** but I am pretty much certain it wouldnt make the grade.

    and I dont think urban splash would be too pleased either considering there all for conservation.
