    Default Tribeca [Great George Street Project]



    Planning permission has been granted for a project by Alison Brooks Architects — part of a scheme by Urban Splash believed to be Liverpool’s biggest-ever residential development.

    ABA’s 93-apartment, sand-stone-clad scheme is the first phase of the 740-home Great George Street project — a new quarter intended to serve as a southern gateway into the city, which this month celebrates becoming 2008 European Capital of Culture.

    A second phase, clad in pink, is being designed by Shed KM (to right of picture) and a third by 2006 Yaya winner Querkraft.

    “We’ve designed a point building, an optimistic beacon that signals the start of the new urban quarter,” said practice director Alison Brooks.

    That Monarch building looks a bit out of place there but glad they're keeping it. Might have looked better if the place to the left of it was lower than it so it was stepped down into the bend.

    What an ugly mess. I'm sure it'll fit in well with Liverpool Cathedral on one side and St James' Church on the other side.

    Wonder how much LCC was given in a brown envelope for this?

    Yeah, that tall being might be a bit too tall for that area and why does it have an aeroplane going through it?

    I'm sorry but that is appalling.

    More apartments???????????????

    How original!

    Just to think they knocked the David Lewis building down in the same sort of vicinity, and now we are getting this sort of rubbish.
