    Exclamation Shanghai Tower

    A MULTI-million pound plan to build the north west’s tallest skyscraper on Liverpool’s waterfront was unveiled today.

    Developer Peel’s £300m scheme would see the 60-storey Shanghai Tower constructed at Princes half-tide dock, on the edge of the city centre.

    The firm said it would house Liverpool’s first five-star hotel as well as offices, apartments, bars and restaurants.

    Surrounded by water, the skyscraper would also have a heli-pad and an underwater basement car park.

    Peel, which also has plans to revitalise Liverpool’s Central Docks and Wirral’s docklands in Birkenhead and Wallasey, will reveal its final designs to the public later this year.

    It has still not decided exactly what the tower would look like and will hold a competition between four of the world’s best architects to come up with a winning blueprint.

    Peel bosses today said they chose the name Shanghai Tower after being inspired by the waterfront of the Chinese city, which is twinned with Liverpool.

    Development director Lindsey Ashworth said: “In Liverpool, we have the Three Graces facing the Mersey.

    “In Shanghai, there must have been at least 30 Graces on the waterfront, beautiful historic buildings set against a backdrop of modern skyscrapers, creating a thriving, bustling and vibrant city.”

    “Having witnessed such a spectacle, I believe the potential for Liverpool’s waterfront is even more enormous than I first thought.”

    Could be tricky to navigate, unless the desired tenants have their own submersibles...

    Don't talk wet, surely they'd line it with plasterboard first.

    You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.
