The King Edward Tower by Maurice Shapero is a proposal for a housing and shopping complex by the waterfront.

This tower boasts a 200-meter height and 67-storeys that would make it the tallest building in Liverpool. Boasting a cross-like shape, the horizontal element will be utilized as a long and narrow restaurant that will entice with its views of the water and metropolis below. This facet is justified by the architect as necessary to counter the towering verticality of the towering construction.

In regards to the seemingly pious reference of design, Shapero explains that though there is a symbolic charge to the crucifix shape, it has come from his imagination and not meant to limit. Stats for Contrasting Crucifix Skyscrapers Trending: Older & Mild
