    Had a good look today at the front of Lime st station, and it is looking grim.
    Those shops in the front of it- thay look a disgrace, the sooner they are swept away the better. Makes you wonder how they ever dreamed up the idea of sticking them there all those years ago in the first place. They have never looked nice - even in the early days. The front of that station could look really smart.

    They should hurry up and sweep away those decrepit old shops.
    The arched windows of the station will be revealed and hopefully restored to their former glory. The space in front of the entrance will be smartened and something nice replacing the shops. It would look so much better.

    A DAZZLING glass skyscraper could still be built despite a fresh setback for developers.

    Chieftain Construction wants to build a 32-storey tower behind Liverpool's Lime Street station, containing a 160-bedroom hotel and about 150 apartments.

    But councillors rejected the application last summer, saying it would clash with a tower planned as part of a redevelopment of the outside of the station.

    On Monday, the firm's attempt to quash the Lime Street scheme, later approved by the city council, failed in London's high court.

    But the developer will still try to get the go-ahead for its own proposal - at a car park site in Skelhorne Street.

    A spokesman for Chieftain said: "We are disappointed with the court's decision, but are still appealing against the original refusal. That will be heard by a planning inspector at a public inquiry, starting on April 25."

    Chieftain wanted a judicial review of approval of the Lime Street scheme on August 23.

    Three weeks earlier, on August 2, Chieftain's project was blocked, partly because the council said it would clash with the Lime Street tower.

    In court, Chieftain argued the council, after deciding the two projects were incompatible, should have considered them together at one meeting.

    But Deputy Judge George Bartlett QC refused to grant a judicial review, saying Chieftain did not have a reasonable prospect of success.

    English Partnerships hopes to start work on its scheme later this year, but the tower - a replacement for Concourse House - will not be ready until midway through 2008.

    as long as the shops are gone, and there is work going on, it doesnt matter if the area is still getting worked on, it shows that there is regeneration occuring to the visitor.

    SHOPKEEPERS are blocking a multi-million pound transformation of ahuge city eyesore in a row over cash.

    The loathed Concourse House faces demolition in ascheme which will reveal the Victorian splendour of Lime Street station.

    Developer English Partnerships also plans a public square leading into the city and a 28-floor tower.

    But five businesses in the parade of shops blocking the scheme claim they had not yet received an offer. more

    Nothing's straight forward in Liverpool is it,it'll go ahead eventually but the shop owners are just after making a quick buck,I'm sure they reach an agreement soon.

    A PLAN to transform Liverpool's Lime Street station would rid the city of its most hideous eyesore, a public inquiry has heard.

    A government inspector was told yesterday that the controversial scheme would spell the end for Concourse House, voted Liverpool's "Blot Idol" by ECHO readers.

    The high-rise would be replaced by a modern skyscraper and public square.

    But the 35m project is opposed by three shops at the base of Concourse House which fear for their livelihoods.

    The inquiry continues.

    Why don't they just offer them more money just to get rid instead of wasting money on this inquiry? This gateway to the city could have been finished by 2008 and now it wont.

    The new tower looks good, but if the existing tower is going to be with us for just a bit longer, surely a lick of paint wouldn't be a bad idea?
