Great little cluster

Piture from my little Mersey ferry cruise today

This is a good looking cluster with 2 more towers yet to be added along with Malmaison and cruise liner terminal




The brown tower, (think it's Silkhouse court), could do with a reclad though...

One of my fave clusters in the country... Its not the size, the quantity, or even the quality (overall) it just, has something to it. I love it love it love it! Let it grow!

Yes, and from that spot it should appear around 5-10% taller than Beetham 1 if the suggested height is accurate -

Cheers. When it and West Tower are up, you will have to reduce your zoom quite a bit...

Looks like you got the angle just right there Juxt.

MO's 3x zoom is producing some crackers as well.

Luckily the river was very calm, so rested camera on rail, and waited for ferry to level out before shooting. Also took about 10 different shots, so one of them had to turn out ok. Still i did have to rotate the pic by 2 degrees to get it level.

It's going to look huge also, going by the renderings and with it being right on the waters edge.

I think they just need get some towers behind PD and that to give a strong dense feel..Then it will be a formidable cluster! Can't wait to see Alexandra and West tower start.. be brill if they were both rising at the same/similiar time.. really give people a sense of change on the waterfront.

Would also look a hell of a lot better if the Bruntwood building was demolished...

No....It looks quite good now. The crown could do with tarting up, or even illuminating in some way to add to our "City Of Light" and make the nightime shot even better.

I think the same effect as on the bonnet of the car from "Knightrider" would look good.

JUXTAPOL, with you on this, smarten up the roof line of Bruntwood and install an exciting lighting scheme would do wonders for "the old girl".
Demolish ---NO.

How about a giant news ticker all the way around? it's long enough and tall enough to get messages up to Kirkdale and across the city centre.
