It may well be taller than that Westie. Don't forget, it's slightly lower down the hill than the original Beetham tower.

Looks like the Malmaison might be externally complete by christmas in that shot



Will look stunning once the 36 storey Princes Dock tower pops up on the stretch of wasteland in front.

Fine by me Westie. It's just getting interesting as well, with the cladding going on etc.

after what we heared today in the Daily Post, it might not, or will be reduced in height. If we do get it, late 2006 start

I wouldn't woory too much about site 3a Westie. It's just the opportunistic vultures trying to use the World Heritage site as an excuse not to get things built. English Heretics even want the tower chopped in two, to make it more 'in keeping'. with what exactly? All the planning dept need to do is look at the compromised stump that is City Lofts to one side and the shite car park to the other, to see that these Heritage bodies really don't have our interests at heart.

However, Mersey Property Company have come out fighting, stating that there will be no 'significant' changes to the design. Good on them. They also have Peel backing them up, and I don't tink the city council are going to dick around with a property company that owns over 1/3 of developable land in the city, do you?

Even the Lib Dems aren't that ******* thick Westie.

And westie, if you're trying to capture stills from the webcam, save the image to your computer and upload it again via imageshck or somthing. All of your recent posts are of the exact same updated pics.

Here's site 3a for those who were wondering:






'Joyless and Weak?' Just like their argument IMO.

It must be me but it doesnt look that tall compared to that other Beetham. If its around the same height it doesnt look it but with another 18 floors on top it should look petty big.

It's also further downhill than the other Beetham Andy, I'd say that probably knocks 1-2 floors off it.

you must remember that at the top of the Doka as of today, it is about 2 stories off Beetham 1 so it will be 120-130ft taller than beetham 1

Okies that makes sense. They should have added 2 more floors on to compensate for the hill.
