    Exclamation Unity Tower

    I took this pic tonite of The UNity devlopemnt in town:



    The completed project should look like this:



    The Unity scheme includes twin towers - one 27 storeys high and the other 16 storeys - on a site next to the Liverpool Thistle Hotel, in Chapel Street, opposite the Pier Head.

    Advertisements -------

    The futuristic design has been created by Liverpool-born architect Paul Monaghan, now a director with London-based Allford, Hall, Monaghan Morris.

    It has been inspired by the work of world-famous French architect Le Corbusier's award winning residential block Unite d'Habitation, built in Marseilles in the 1940s - hence the name Unity for the Liverpool project.

    Splendid picture, Kev. The building is looking good and not far from finished.

    Don't forget your tripod! Or place the camera on a stable surface and take a timed picture - that should stop the camera shaking, Kev.

    There is a tour to the top of The Unity development on Monday evening, 5pm - 7pm. The time has been extended due to the high interest. The tour is part of the Downtown Liverpool Week which began on 11th June and finishes on 18th June.

    I am booked on this free tour and will be taking my camera in anticipation of some fantastic views of Liverpool and beyond.

    Fancy going? Contact: Anna.Johnson@member.riba.org to book your place.

    Default Unity Development - 19th June 2006





    This scheme is amazing, so many bodies working on site. The tour took the group into the commercial building first and at 17 stories is pretty high and will add much needed office space on Chapel Street with commercial units/ shop space underneath at street level.







    After a brief chat and some amazing views from all 4 sides of the 17th floor we were taken back down in a very smooth but swift lift, to the residential building which stands at 27 stories.



    The show apartment was almost read apart from the final 'snag'. I thought it was quite small until we went upstairs which opened out onto the living room/ kitchen area with a tiny balcony with fantastic views.







    After that we continued our trip to the top where we were greeted by a rather tiny but posh buffet and a small presentation. This happened at the very top, the huge open space that is the 2-3 million pound penthouse suite.

    Paul, it was really special. I was there mainly for the pics and the feel of the site as it progresses, a chance to see my city as never before. MOst were architects and some of the info passed me by very quickly.

    The colour schemes planned for the walls etc were mad.

    I've been promised some high quality digital pics from one of the guys working there. Fingers crossed.

    That'd be great if you could get those pictures Kev,I wonder if they'll do a West Tower tour next year that would be something else.

    Yes Paul, my thoughts exactly. I've just been passed the Williamson Tunnels and would like to go there too. Maybe we could organise something as a forum group or summink.
