Liverpool architecture news: building works commence on Pembroke Place ; RIBA National Architecture Centre opens at Mann Island, beside the Three Graces and recent museum building. The Royal Institute of British Architects centre contains a conference facilities and a gallery.
£35m 27-storey building, the first of a pair of large-scale residential towers near to Liverpool’s central business district, contains 168 homes. The development sits within the buffer zone boundary of Liverpool’s World Heritage Site.
Residential tower of around 85,000 sqft: the multi-storey apartment block in Princes Dock will be built by Peel as the company’s first Private Rented Sector development project and bought by Liverpool-based Regenda.
It is Liverpool’s oldest surviving city centre building and a fine example of Queen Anne-style architecture, yet the builders and architects responsible for creating Bluecoat have remained unconfirmed – until now. New research has discovered fresh information about the origins of this much loved Liverpool building, which dates from 1717 and started life as a charity school before becoming a centre for the contemporary arts.
