    Default Beetham Developments

    Brook Street Liverpool.

    At 40 storeys, the elegant tower will be Liverpool’s tallest building. The live cam is fascinating. Watch the tower grow as it is being construted on Liverpool's waterfront.

    Thumbs down Beetham go even higher - but not in Liverpool

    DEVELOPERS may be struggling to get approval for skyscrapers in Liverpool but Merseyside firm Beetham has had no such problems with its latest 47-storey tower in the centre of Manchester. more



    Hugh Frost, chairman of developers Beetham Organization, said: "As well as being one of the most prestigious developments in the UK, this is also a project of major international significance for Manchester's development, and will help push the city to the top of the European league."
    I'm sure companies want to do the same here in Liverpool but cannot If they cannot spend their millions here, then Manchster will continue to benefit.

    When I drove into M(*cough)chester recently, i saw this huge tower on the horizon, was very impressive. How strange though, it is being built on Liverpool Road

    I've just read this: Leeds to get Europe's tallest building

    Plans are underway to construct a new skyscraper in the northern England city of Leeds that will officially be Europe's tallest building.

    The Lumiere Tower 1 will cost £225m to build and, at a height of 52 storeys and 170.88 metres, it will surpass Beetham Tower over in Manchester by two metres as the tallest building in Europe.

    It is expected that the sksyscraper will be completed by 2010 and contain 650 apartments, many of which will be designed specifically for people aged over 55, as well as office space, a dentist, shops and cafes.

    Leeds City Council leader Andrew Carter told BBC News: "Leeds really does lead the way when it comes to innovation, development and being a successful, vibrant city.

    "The towers are a stunning example of modern design which will be a key landmark as the city's progress continues apace."

    The project will also see the construction of a smaller tower, 30 storeys high, on the same site, which will be linked to the first tower by a sheltered winter garden.

    It is to be carried out jointly by construction firms KW Linfoot and Scarborough Development Group, who specialise in residential and commercial projects respectively and work on the site will begin in October, pending council approval.

    They really need to proof-read their own articles. 170m wouldn't even make it the tallest building in England. Fools.

    Hopefully now that the tall building policy abolished, boundaries on tall buildings can be pushed further.

    Hopefully, but I'm afraid it'll go the other way. Whenever you read about that tall buildings policy it always states that it is to ENCOURAGE tall buildings in the three zones. My fear is they won't even allow tall buildings there any more, dropping the policy before Chieftain have had their enquiry result, thus rendering one of their arguments (rejecting a tall building in a designated tall building zone) useless.

    They say it will enable them to view planning applications on their individual merits, but it could also mean a blanket ban on anything taller than what is already there. It just depends how you read into it.

    I hope not I hope it acts as a stimulus in other areas for the council/ decision makers to be forward thinking allowing exciting tall buildings to compliment the existing 'clusters'.

    I've got nothing against tall buildings, as long as:

    1. The buildings are tastefully done;
    2. They don't demolish old buildings that are part of the architectural heritage to do it

    That said, I think the original design behind Central Station in town is much more appealing than the compromise, and that rather than height limitations, they should instead forever outlaw the following kind of crap (At any height):

    Plus I want to go up tall buildings and look at the view.

    MANCHESTER (Reuters) - A noisy skyscraper is threatening to muscle in on "Coronation Street" as a whistling sound from the new 48-storey tower plays over the red-brick terrace set of the country's longest-running soap opera.

    "Sound engineers were picking up a flute-like sound on their earphones," a spokeswoman at the TV series' producer, Granada, said on Thursday.

    Contractors working on the site of the glazed 171 metre Beetham Tower, set to be Britain's tallest building outside London when it is finished in August, blamed wind gusting past the tower's glass blade pinnacle for the disturbance.

    "It's a horrible noise -- I thought a UFO was landing," a local resident wrote on the North West Enquirer newspaper's Web site.

    Filming was not interrupted but sound engineers added a wild track of background noise to fix the problem, the Granada spokeswoman said.

    A spokeswoman for contractor Carillion said the company was adjusting the design of the glass blade and hoped to reduce noise to an acceptable level within two weeks.

    The first 6 or 7 floors are going to be offices; the rest will be luxury apartments. This should fit in nicely with the CBD developments.

    The footprint of the building is so small that it would be inpractical for it to be a shopping development. In any case, there will be plenty of shops in the emerging CBD redevelopment- not to mention Church St and Paradise St which are no more than 10 mins walk away.

    I would like to see that white bare concrete multi-storey car park removed opposite. It is on the quay of Princes Dock - an appalling act. Also remove large sections of the wall too, to open up the docks to the public.

    The MSCP is no beauty. However, it is not made of bare concrete. The columns are clad with facing panels and the balconies around each parking floor are painted metal.

    I agree with you about opening the dock wall and increasing the accessibility of the dock and waterfront from the rest of the city centre.
