Latest images of construction progress at Pier Head/Mann Island, where three major regeneration projects are under way
These are the latest images of development progress at the Pier Head/Mann Island area of Liverpool.
The bird’s eye view of the area shows how it is being transformed by a number of major schemes on the City's waterfront, which are being overseen by regeneration company Liverpool Vision.
Construction of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal (pictured in front of the "Three Graces") is due of completion at the end of 2008.
Meanwhile work is under way on the £50m Museum of Liverpool (grey and red building by the water's edge), with the shell due to be complete in 2009 and fit out over the following 18 months. It is expected to be open to the public in 2011.
Adjacent to the museum is the site of Neptune Developments Countryside Properties' £120m mixed-use scheme, where green cranes are visible. The development will include public areas, cafes and restaurants, shops, exhibition space, 376 apartments and 140,000 ft2 of office space. It is expected to open in 2010.
