This week’s round-up looks at a project to rediscover Liverpool’s royal past, a couple of articles worried about Liverpool’s planning future, and an old building goes back to its roots. First off, a recently-started project investigates a place very close to my heart.
Liverpool.com have a short but detailed article on the Port of Liverpool Building, one of the Pier Head’s Three Graces. With a few photos, and details of restoration by the building’s current owners Downing, the piece includes details of the interior and maritime decor. There’s also an artist’s impression of what Mann Island will look like from the bottom of Water Street when the new developments next to the Port of Liverpool Building are completed. Not as bad as I’d imagined, to be honest. What do you think?
