who the hell came up with the name 'spital tower' for sheffield.

Spital is otherwise known as the little bits of spit that fire out of peoples mouths when they speak too fast or get over animated.

Yes but we have only heard of 4 so far so I can't add more yet.

I think it's useless putting the approved as well the proposed towers in the same colour, proposing anyone can do, an approved tower is in a much more definate position. Impressive list however.

Go and have a look at the Manchester threads. Hardman Square 1, Beetham, Crown, Eastgate and someothers off Oxford road but cant remember what they are called. Then there are 3 or 4 in Salford. Greengate and Dandara which will be just across the boarder from Manchester which will appear in the manc skyline. Then there will be 3 or 4 that will be 100m+ in Salford quays.

There are only actually 4 skyscrapers approved or proposed in Manchester. Actually there are only 3 as Quay point tower is in pre-planning. A skyscraper starts at around about the 150m mark. The closest one after Beetham is the 130m Crown building. So I don't count anything under about 150m as skyscrapers and I don't count something from one place as being in another. Just because a tower will appear on the manc skyline doesn't mean it is in Manchester.

Is Centre point the only major tower in west london. It seems most of the proposals are in the eastern part of the city. Out of the older towers centre point is one of the best in my opinion.

Centrepoint is right in the middle of London- Most of the new proposals are indeed in the Eastern part of the city mainly due to the financial part of the city (the city of london) Is East of the centre & Canary Wharf & the docklands is also in the East- The docklands has seen a lot of proposals as this area is ripe for development & has a fair few brownfield sites whereas the Western part of London is very much established residential so its more difficult to get a tall tower approved in a mainly residential area,but there are some exceptions The Empress state building is in West London (which is a redevelopment of an older tower around the 30 storey mark) & the new tower proposed in Paddington recently & a couple around olympia.

Theres also the fact that Heathrow airport is in West London so really tall towers wouldn't be allowed

Skyscrapers do not suddenly make a city world-class. Cities in the UK aren't seen as world-class mainly because London overarchs all of them in terms of tourist advertising - but cities such as Manchester, Brighton, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Leeds and Newcastle are certainly world-class if given a bit more of a push by the UK tourism board.
