    This artical was released a few months back by an amazing local blog called Seven Streets. It makes for very interesting reading:

    I think its the Cunard building, as there seems to be artwork hanging from the pillars and he talks about the Cunard building being used for the Biennial :)

    A few of these buildings should be open on the Heritage Weekend.

    I need the date for this Heritage open Day, will have to come over.
    I thought it was the Royal Insurance Building, to which I found a report in here now.
    Many buildings within a mile

    Re: Awesome Artical Talking About Empty Liverpool

    Thanks for the article-just a few things I know about:

    Tinlings Building - that's now being converted into student flats with a roof extension

    Watson Building - that's had several applications through relating to converting it to mixed use with an extension replacing Rapid's old building next to it ; Merepark are still busy with Lewis's and CV so it might be a while before anything happens

    West Africa House - recently approved was "to change use of basement/ground and mezzanine levels from sui generis use to A3 (restaurant/cafe) A4 (bar) and ancillary D2 (events space) use"

    Littlewoods Building, Edge Lane:

    "Littlewoods Site Edge Lane Liverpool L7 : To alter and convert former storage facility for various uses retail, business, hotel and institutional..."

    "Littlewoods Site Edge Lane Liverpool L13 : To alter and convert former Littlewood's buildings as a mixed used scheme including hotel, offices and business units and a range of ancillary uses..."

    Both approved recently. The storage facility is the square building behind it afaik,and it's all in L7.

    Union House, Victoria Street - last year a scheme for a hotel conversion was approved,nothing doing so far though...

    Produce and Fruit Exchange, Victoria Street - whether this is indicative of anything in the works IDK,but it was cleaned and all the weeds removed last year

    Compton House, Church Street - that's a mistake,it's M&S who recently extended their floorspace

    Scandinavian Hotel, Duke Street - student flats in the works,as per a recent topic

    New for 2013 is Rapid's half of the GHL building,empty since they went bust,and one glaring omission was the Strawberry Arcade building on the east side of BHS.

    Dave.

    I remember that littlewoods building being fairly large. There are loads of other empties in liverpool all in various stats of decay, also lots of disused and partly disused industrial estates around.

    One less empty,hopefully. Royal Insurance building to be hotel...

    Yep,one for example is the Rocket Estate which is closing down to be turned into a housing estate. Mostly crappy warehouses,but there are two more interesting older buildings. One on the left as you go in,still in use,and one by the railway station which looks totally derelict.
