Broadway Malyan shortlisted for Liverpool tall tower

  • Comment
Broadway Malyan has been named as one of four practices shortlisted to design a new 60-storey tower on an island in Liverpool's Princes Half Tide Dock.

Benoy, Chapman Taylor and AFL are also vying to build the scheme, which is being hailed as the tallest skyscraper development in the UK outside of London.

The development is being backed by ambitious local developer Peel, which has already signalled its intention to transform huge areas along the River Mersey with its £10 billion Liverpool Waters and Wirral Waters.

The mixed-use skyscraper will house a five-star hotel as well as 93,000m2 of residential and office space, and has been dubbed the Shanghai Tower in homage to Liverpool's twin city.

According to Peel, the tricky island plot will present an 'exciting challenge' to the architects while allowing 'massive scope for innovative design, something befitting such a wonderful world-recognised location'.

All four designs will be unveiled later this year.
