    Post Pall Mall


    RHWL's competition-winning concept for Pall Mall, which lies adjacent to St Pauls Square, builds upon fundamental design principles established in earlier phases. Pall Mall's mix of buildings is commercially-led with a substantial complement of high-efficiency residences. Just as they did for the CBD, the architects have paid great attention to the discovery of the right balance that will encourage geographically dispersed, 24-hour usage. There is scope to include significant leisure and hotel facilities, and total flexibility for changing use is designed in. For example, offices can easily become retail spaces

    The city needs people and people need places to live.
    If the area is purely commercial, it will be a dead zone at night hence a mixed use scheme.
    Simple urban policy.

    I wouldnt call them shoe box's and being in a desirable area to live governs the price, I personally think this is good for the city of liverpool, obviousley there are alot whom wish the money was spent on them (very selfish) the people that buy those homes may well decide to set up business's here, take the Beetham developments for example, they are resident here in Beetham West, they like others will employ, that too has to be good for the local population. The days of council housing is long over and will never return! (thank god) so, think of it this way the more yuppies that come the more money they will spend, which will in turn keep your council tax down to a reasonable level, remember those so called shoe boxs as you put it, will be in a high council tax band.
