Towering proposals revealed for Chatham and Liverpool

  • Comment

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.
