I have nothing against Dubai as i happen to love it but other buildings deserve a chance, like the lime st tower, pan peninsular, if you don't like the thread don't post on it, simple

Its going to be the tallest structure in one of the UK's most famous cities, its highly significant because Liverpool is emerging from a vicious recession that lasted the latter part of the 20th Century which saw the population halve and the traditional industries centred around the docks collapse.

Instead of turning your nose up at it because there's taller stuff in Dubai why not try adding a positive comment?

You're getting the two Beethams mixed up. The first one (on the left) is complete, its Beetham WEST (on the right) which is now under construction.

The design is very good and contributes a great improvement in view of the sky line.

Yes, exactly. Well said.

This tower is more significant than a lot of Dubai's skyscrapers. Height isn't everything - it's all about scale and context too.
