Two proposals for tower developments have been unveiled this week.
Wilkinson Eyre Architects has revealed two towers in Chatham, Kent, (above, left) which have been granted planning permission this week; while Ian Simpson Architects has just submitted a 50-storey skyscraper on the Liverpool waterfront (above, right) for planning.
The Chatham scheme has been likened to 'two lighthouses' - one of 15 storeys and one of 19 - and will include flats, shops, a gym and leisure centre and will overlook the local quays.
And Ian Simpson Architects' project, for Maro Developments, aims to create a landmark 50-storey building at the entrance to the Liverpool Marina on Brunswick Quay. The project will include about 500 apartments, with a hotel, retail and office uses.
'The tower will provide a dramatic addition to Liverpool's famous waterfront, respecting the city's heritage, reinforcing the regeneration initiatives already under way, and creating a new place that will make a real difference to the city and its people, ' Simpson said.
