    A waste of another fine Liverpool pub, but in the state it was in there was no doubt it had to go.

    Nice to see the council finally realising it has to try and save properties, afetr the wanton destruction of the massive houses in Toxteth.

    Happy days indeed Kev, they have reduced the number of apartments from 512 down to 418 , but this scheme could still give the city its first 50 storey tower !

    I can't think of a more appropriate site for a scheme of this size, with Princes Dock a stones throw away

    Looking at the towers in close proximity to this site one can expect two very tall structures on the site. I believe Beetham Wast have 168 apartments and that is a 40 story building. KE are calling for a 412 apartment building('s). Do the math.

    Default Skyscraper

    I believe the accepted definition of a skyscraper is a building 50 floors high or taller. Lets hope this is Liverpool's first skyscraper.

    Skyscraper, 5 results on Dictionary.com. None mention how many stories.

    Get them built so Snappel has something to climb.

    I read this definition:

    multi-storied building constructed on steel skeleton, combining extraordinary height with ordinary rooms such as would be found in low buildings, the term originated in the United States in the later 1880s after buildings in New York reached ten stories
    I think 'Harry' is just being a pedant.

    In case anybody doesn't know, the Royal Liver Building was the tallest office building in Europe until after the Second World War.
    It's a pity Liverpool's planners aren't as forward thinking now, as they were 100 years ago.
    And the definition of a skyscraper is about the same as the definition of a length of a piece of string.
    I've seen a postcard of Manhattan's skyline in about 1907 which mentions skyscrapers.

    A Beautiful piece of architecture

    the sort of thing the council has talked about in its layered or tier approach.
    its certainly iconic.

    I agree it's very impressive. About time too.

    My only criticism is that it's yet another bloody bar code facade.

    The 14th floor features a massive skybar and restaurant spread over almost 600 square metres that will be accessed by an exclusive express lift and offer 360 degree views of the whole of Liverpool from within.

    At a rough guess about 550 feet.

    It certainly looks stunning.
    It has to be said that Beetham West and Unity have a rather dated look.

    If plans get the go ahead, the tower will stand 170m (558ft) and 54 storeys tall by the Princes Dock development

    The tower has been designed by architects Leach Rhodes Walker (LRW), who say they have taken into account Liverpool's World Heritage status
