PATH CLEARED FOR A-CUBE HOUSES

NEWS IN PICTURES

A-Cube Architects has been given the go-ahead for this development in Liverpool's controversial Pathfinder housing-renewal zone. The 4,500m 2 scheme will create 39 new homes on the semiderelict site in Granby, Toxteth, ranging in size from two-bedroom flats to six-bedroom houses.

Designed for the Steve Biko Housing Association, the first phase of the project will cost £2.9 million and is due to start on site within the next six weeks. Architect Damion Burrows, working alongside practice director Naushad Islam, admitted that the team had enjoyed a relatively smooth ride on the project so far - despite huge opposition to similar Pathfinder schemes elsewhere. Burrows said: 'These projects are only controversial if they land on your doorstep without any consultation. However, we have taken the residents with us on this and not just imposed our views on them.' The first residents are expected to move in next summer.
