Excellent Paul, where's Unity?Originally Posted by Paul D
That was an old render before its time I'm afraid but you can see the positive effect it's going to have.
I love the new beetham. Are you going on the Unity tour next week?
BTW - WATERFRONT planners are ordering new buildings be raised above the river as they prepare for global warming.
Sea levels around Liverpool have risen by 6cm in the last 50 years and could swell by another 67cm by 2080.
And plans are already being laid to prepare for knock-on effects in the Mersey.
Liverpool's waterfront is going through a renaissance, with patches of land next to the Mersey the target for big-money building firms.
Work is already under way at Kings Dock, while Princes Dock and Mann Island are both earmarked for expensive projects.
But Environment Agency experts are telling developers to raise buildings above the water level to avoid risk of widespread flooding.
Hi-tech equipment has identified more areas at risk of flooding, and rules and regulations are more strict than ever before. continues...

The night views are great. The city looks fab all lit up.
Just imagine it when the whole of the Kings Dock comes to life and with all of the other towers they have planned lighting up the Waterfront.Originally Posted by lindylou
As it changes so its fame will remain.
The city skyline is famous only because people are interested in what goes on here, so it is used as a backdrop to report on other events. If we stop doing things then people will forget the buildings.... if we continue doing things then some of this will create sufficient value to lead to changes in the skyline.
Here's a complete pano of our skyline,the towers on Kings Dock have just gone into planning so hopefully they'll be approved soon,Central Village has been approved and doesn't feature on this render so that's to be added to this and also an application has just gone in for a tower in the Baltic Triangle for a 22 storey tower.As if that wasn't enough an application has just gone in for site 3A on Princes Dock(next to city lofts) for a 36 storey tower so things are really looking up.
Keep on seeing all these great renders on the forum of the city's skyline from the river - something I rarely see in reality. My daily view of the city's skyline is from the opposite direction as I wander down Erskine St. and Islington each morning. Anbody able to show us what the view over the city from the Low Hill direction is going to look like.
A lot of the towers aren't complete so maybe that's why your not seeing any pictures of it from Low Hill yet and the renders we have are off the Kings Dock website so they're only interested in showing the skyline from the Waterfront.
Thanks A.D let's hope that 36 storey tower next to city lofts that's just gone into planning gets approved hey.
Unity is looking great. The 3d images wern't all that complementitive of the building but I think it looks great now it's almost finished! Wouldn't mind an apartment there! Although, No1 Princes Dock will be nicer when it's built. Have to live by the river now!
I dont like Unity. I dont think it does the skyline any favours. The shape is fine. The cladding makes it look crap though.
The Unity is nice, it doesnt have to fit in with anything as far as I know - the colours on th Princess Dock buildings are a crime
Nah! Princes Dock is nice. Its just too bloody small.
Very good Liverpool skyline website well worth a look at,Go all the
way down the page and "view the clip" where it says super fast seascape-HD it's fantastic. There's a couple to view at the side of the
page were it says video pool.
The Liverpool skyline on the morning the Clarence Dock Chimneys were blown
almost looks like a painting it's beautiful.
Just had a look through
your collection PhilipG. Some excellents pics there.
I didn't know that there was a cinema on Belmont rd.
I knew the building when it was the
Wookey Hollow nightclub.
As you say, that buiding is now unrecognisable.

Some great photos lads!
I love this 1
This picture is
Now I'm not one to complain, but even my 17" screen doesn't allow me
to fully appreciate that photo. It's not hard to resize them, plus the images usually look a bit more sharper.
Microsoft offer a handy utility.
Download and install this, and then you can
right click on any image in explorer and quickly resize them. A 9488px wide image is fine, but taking it straight off the camera at 10MP or something and
posting it kind of screws the thread up a bit...
