There’s nothing especially controversial about the freshly launched (at MIPIM this morning) first look at phase one of Liverpool Waters. The office blocks, towers and water’s edge residential certainly aren’t going to frighten the horses.

Peel has submitted a planning application for an eight-story office building at Princes Dock, to be named William Jessop House, and it’s announced that it’ll be working with Moda Living on a new residential tower, alongside.

There are plans afoot for further developments, including a new 150-bedroom hotel, 40 residential apartments, and a mixed-use leisure-retail development in Princes Dock.

  1. I like the designs (as much as these types of modern buildings can be liked), but I agree with Andychrist – why not try and keep with the look and style of the Graces? I mean, this is the 21st century, why can’t be use fake stone that looks the part but has all the benefits of modern products (better resistance to the elements, increased insulation, easy to clean etc)?
