The date for the re-development of a historic Liverpool city centre landmark has been put back AGAIN. There has been widespread concern about the deteriorating state of Heaps Rice Mill, which now has trees growing out of the upper levels due to long-term neglect. The listed building, on the edge of the Baltic Triangle, has been empty since 2005. and has had planning permission to be converted into apartments since 2014. Despite repeated assurances that work was due to get under way, the building has continued to deteriorate. Earlier this year the ECHO obtained pictures showing the shocking state of the interior - including rusting columns, waterlogged floors and scattered debris. At the time, architects Falconer Chester Hall said work on converting the building into residential accommodation was on schedule to start in the first half of 2018. However, that timescale has now slipped again and it appears it is now likely to be another year before any work begins on site.

The Baltic Triangle has become Liverpool's hippest area - but how can it survive as the developers move in? In a special report, we've spoken to those who helped turn the Baltic from a backwater into a destination namechecked by the Rough Guide as "uber-arty" and described by the national media as among the coolest places in Britain. In 2004 the forgotten area was almost earmarked as a red light district. But soon, artists and creatives moved in and the area began a new lease of life. More recently the rebirth of Cains brewery, including the massively popular Baltic Market, means thousands of visitors pour into the Parliament Street area every weekend. But many in the Baltic are now worried about the consequences of that success. And the announcement that popular venue Constellations was moving out to make way for a development reignited the debate on whether the area is losing its soul as the developers move in.
