But what will it look like?

Not knowing the city (apart from a flying visit to the Albert Docks years ago) what will the skyline look like with all the proposed developments planned?

Have to admit that there's not enough posters in Glasgow for that kind of quick reply!!!!

Bunnyman and I have recently posted in Glasgae. Some fantastic pics on your forum, esp the Necropolis which is an interest of mine.

No... you don't need a cluster by the docks there, they're open, spacious and iconic.. It's much better keeping all the talls in the area they're in, bar Brunswick

To be honest I dont think Liverpool's influence over Preston has changed at all since end of the second world war, at which point it significantly decreased with the dying days of the industrial revolution.
I think you greatly overestimate the power that Manchester and Liverpool have over the rest of the North West. People in Preston conduct 95% of their business in Preston. That includes time at home, going shopping, going to work and enjoying leisure activities. The other 5% is made up of maybe a couple of visits to Blackpool and Southport in the summer, the odd shopping trip to Manchester, or going for a walk in the county etc.
I dont know anyone in Preston who goes to work in Liverpool or goes on regular visits (except for one person who is a Liverpool fan). Manchester has a bigger influence over central lancs than Liverpool but even so, its still not that much.
At the moment there is NOTHING to suggest that Preston is part of the Liverpool city region, and their is nothing to suggest that it ever will be. The same goes for Manchester.
Liverpool is struggling to get a grip on its current city region with people from Wirral and Southport constantly claiming their independance, let alone expanding it that far north.

Pete Price said that Formby wasnt part of Liverpool on his Sunday night show. Then again, he was having a rant at some yuppie from Formby over the phone...

I agree. I used to really admire him, but now he has become so self centred. I dont even listen to his show anymore.
The final straw for me was when he spends all his time saying how much he hates football, and telling Liverpool and Everton fans to get lost... then Liverpool reach the European final, and where is he? In a bar, on the local tv news saying how great it is for the city and 'how proud' he is to have his team in the final.
Talk about jumping on the bandwagon...

Apparently a Dutch tower (proposed or U/C in Rotterdam?). It has been substituted in to represent the King Edward Tower, which would be of similar dimensions. However, only one poor quality render was released so JDN (I think) used this tower instead.

The likelyhood of this particular tower being constructed is now in doubt due to a lack of news on the project, but its proposed site is full of potential, and so a significant highrise of some description is a strong possibility.
