You Say: Restore city pride.
Byline: Dr Richard Kirkham
IT IS not before time that the Fourth Grace scheme has been shelved. We can now rest assured that the Pier Head The Pier Head is a riverside location in the city-centre of Liverpool, England.
The Pier Head is the historic location of Liverpool's landing stages and a trio of landmarks, which around 2001/02 were dubbed the 'Three Graces': Royal Liver Building, will remain the way it always has been, a potent symbol of the architectural grandeur and excellence that is synonymous with the Liverpool.
Liverpool does not need a new building. It still retains an amazing wealth of architecture that is has been left to decay.
Liverpool council should now funnel the Fourth Grace funding into a project that will ensure that this architecture can be restored back to its original glory.
