    Default Are they really going to fill the subway in with polystyrene?

    Or is this another 'Art Exhibit' for COC?

    Believe it or not, yes! It was done a few years ago with the west derby road subway in Tue Brook.

    good grief, whatever next. I saw it yesterday and thought it was just to stop the subway being used.

    It's an eyesore. Demolition can't come soon enough for me.

    The original decision to demolish it was to replace it with a taller building.
    Now that isn't going to happen I agree with this quote:

    "Now that they are not going to proceed with a new, taller tower, surely it makes most sense to retain the current Concourse House, re-clad it and maybe add some extra storeys."

    As the article said, it could be made to look new.

    £50m hotel to be built next to Lime Street Station

    A 17-STOREY, £50m hotel complex will be built next to Lime Street station.

    Approval for the plans was granted by Liverpool councillors yesterday.

    It will include a luxury 4-star, 209-room hotel joined to a 195-room 2/3-star hotel.

    The complex will be run by Clarion and will be only their second in the UK – the hotel-iers are currently building their first in London.

    The Limerick-based Chieftain group own the land, on the corner of Skelhorne Street and Bolton Street, and will also build the property.

    Sean O’Sullivan, chief operating officer of the Chieftain Group, said his company chose Liverpool because there were opportunities here other cities no longer offer.

    He said: “We felt Manchester was cooked, but Liverpool still has opportunities and still has demand for hotels. Clarion have a quality operation that they are rolling out across the UK and Europe.”

    The building will be v-shaped with the apex at the junction of the two roads. The 4-star hotel will have its entrance on Skelhorne Street, with the 2/3-star hotel exiting on Bolton Street.

    Mr Sullivan said he hoped work would start by the end of the year and that the hotels would be finished by 2010.
    It is the company’s first construction project in Liverpool.

    They bought the site three years ago and permission was granted for a 151-room hotel and 88 apartments in February, 2007. Mr Sullivan said this plan never got under way because of fears about the housing market.

    was there someone underneath with a laptop thinking it's a WIFI zone?!

    only for the fact I know you don't use photoshop, it looks like one of those jokey pics on the internet. I'm sure the police will be moving the crowd of bystander (in the singular) on.

    I was hoping for more Piccadilly Circus than Billy Smarts Circus!

    Go past that white elephant every day - when it's actually working, it shows 3 adverts. WOW. Why couldn't they have put it further down on Roe Street so people waiting for the bus could at least have something to look at!

    he may have been putting up the rest of the sign on the station.

    the one where it says Big things happen.
    there's a new bit underneath that now mentioning the North West.

    rather him than me though!

    I've got a pic somewhere of the top half before it was finished

    here we go

    I have to laugh at that underwhelming banner on the station. "The Northwest",how generically vague. Of course big things will happen there,it's a quarter of the country . Why they put Liver birds next to such a bland statement I don't know,if they had said "Liverpool" instead it would have made sense. More importantly,when is Concourse House being blown up?

    There's something being constructed next to Concourse House. So far it's just a pile of steelwork, waiting to be filled with concrete. The only thing I can think of, is a concrete base for a tower crane?
