The Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse and the smaller South Warehouse alongside are currently being converted into apartments by Harcourt (what was the North Warehouse is now the Titanic Hotel). These warehouses are a well known feature of the Liverpool docks - see previous posts or wikipedia for the history. We first had a quick explore to see what was going on about this time last year, at which stage one part of the Tobacco warehouse was hollowed out, with a crane in the middle of the large rectangular hole. I recently went back to see what progress has been made, so this is by way of an update.

Visit: Went in just before sunrise and climbed to the top of the larger building to take in the views. It was drizzling on and off.

There are now three large holes and two cranes

Wandered down to check out partly installed windows (fairly weighty double-glazed units)

And the the aluminium studwork

..and what are presumably the holes for split-level apartments

The sun was coming out now so headed over to the smaller (and rather nicer) older building - the one with curved corners. A couple of inside views - some partitioning is going on over here as well.

Then up to the top to admire some pretty puddles where the roof was missing

On the way down a few items including the old ledgers mentioned in a previous post (suprised they are still there)

Finally headed out via the old silo with the Sargent Pepper mural, demolition apparently in progress - hadn't previously noticed that this thing has stairs inside.

Apologies for quality of the photos - not really my thing - but I would encourage anyone going through Liverpool to have a look round these places before they are completely developed. A nice easy explore to start the day!

Clever way to make use of an otherwise unconvertable building.
Thanks for the update, interesting stuff

Think security or whoever owns this place has just give up on keeping people out. Insane amounts of people have explored this place even while workers are still inside... good update
