LITTLEWOODS’ historic art deco former Pools building is to be converted into an impressive apartments, hotel, retail and leisure complex – topped with a “light pod” viewing gallery.

The huge project will transform the Edge Lane site – one of the city’s most distinctive landmarks – and see the creation of 1,000 jobs.

The £60m plan, revealed yesterday, is part of an impressive £220m portfolio that award-winning developers Urban Splash are involved with in the city.

If three separate plans by the company get the go-ahead, the portfolio will also see 700 apartments erected on a former council estate in Great George Street near the city’s Anglican Cathedral.

And revised plans for a 64-storey apartment and office block (reduced from 88 floors) in city centre Old Haymarket, formerly Manchester Street is also being planned.

Or possibly just another embaressing Daily Post typo..... shame though... would get heads turning at EH!
So, a possible 64 story tower on the way? or a typo? YOU DECIDE!!!

Edit: as it turns out, this is probably just a typo. A rather annoying one though! Ah well, there is still Shanghai tower to look forward too!

Well actually, I dont know how long ago KET was announced, but we've had a 170m tower and a 220m* tower announced within a very short space of time..

Some good proposals here, especially Liverpool Waters, even if it would take 50 years to finish.

50 years is a figure which has been floated around but is inaccurate, the article announcing this tower said Liverpool Waters hopes to be completed by 2025.. 18 years.

It is impressive to see how fast the city has changed!
Liverpool will have UK:s 2nd largest skyline after London together with Manchester.

Liverpool's waterfront location makes it a far more attractive skyline than London at present... here are some recent pics from flickr:

just think the left side of the second pic should eventually be full of lovely shiney towers. Liverpools certainly a place on the up!
