True but as they say, you gotta start somewhere. It's good to see UK high rise development beyond London.

This is Liverpool taken from over a dock on the other side of the River Mersey, it can look great and when all of the proposed towers and the football stadium is built, it's going to look brilliant. Extending the skyline by over a mile.



By posting it here you're not saying it's the best, you're merely showcasing it. To the left of this image, eight towers are currently approved or with the planning authority and the cruise liner terminal is to be extended and a new ferry terminal built.

Then the next dock along is to receive the same treatment, more towers with similar heights to the current largest. Then the dock after that is going to have a large football stadium built for Everton. It's early days but it's a developing skyline.

As you said posting information about the proposed Manchester skyline isn't intended to claim it will be the best, simply to illustrate it's development to those who may not be aware.

Liverpool is going to have a fantastic skyline (all going to plan), particularly being by the waterside. Something we can't build in Manchester unfortunately!

Both are residential towers
Cooltoren - 150 meters Left on the image http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...202049&page=92
Baantoren - 150 meters Right on the image http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...ntoren&page=14

Only 200 meters from the Cooltoren the first building above 200 meters (residential tower = Zalmhaventoren) will also be U/C within a while (I hope)

With the application submitted for North Quay, four towers (222m, 212m, 203m and 107m) - By 2025 Canary Wharf should have 11 towers of 200m+, all we need is London City airport to close and a supertall could be built.

North Quay - Canary Wharf

Hopefully Alpha Square gets built, it's my favourite proposal for the Wharf - just appears to have gone all quite though.

Alpha Square has only had planning permission for a year and projects of this size can take a while to get going. It's currently being mentioned in recent publishing material by the developer, so still very much a live project.

Riverside South is still on the cards as well and will fly up once a new solid plan comes together, since the basement is already complete. So that's two more potential 200m plus towers in the long term pipeline that could well be U/C there by 2025.

It's highly unlikely that London City Airport will ever close (even more so with CW future development) so it's best to dismiss your dreams of any supertalls.

Looking at Alpha Square's planning application (PA/15/02671) some new documents have been submitted in the last few months - alongside a S106 form, could be promising.

Note the word 'could' - a future possibility.

London massing render of U/C, approved, proposed tall buildings. Mostly of the City of London, some of South Bank and Canary Wharf/Nine Elms in the distance.
