Developers are planning to build a 36-storey apartment block and hotel on Liverpool's Princes Dock.
The centrepiece would be a 36 storey apartment block
The centrepiece of the plan is a 135-bedroom hotel near a semi-enclosed square, housing cafes and public areas with views over the dock basin.
The Mersey Property Company has worked with Liverpool City Council and a number of other agencies to put together the design.
It says it will be "a development of genuine landmark quality".
A spokesman for the Mersey Property Company said: "We are conscious of the heritage that surrounds the site and have been committed to extensive and thorough consultation with all the main parties who, like us, have Liverpool's best interests at heart.
"We aim to deliver an iconic, high quality development for the city's Capital of Culture which will add to the vibrancy already being created."
The project has been designed by London-based architects, RMJM, who were behind the planning of Leith Docks in Edinburgh.
Roger Whiteman of RMJM said the buildings had been carefully planned to make the most of the views to Liverpool landmarks, such as the Liver Building.
Other agencies involved in the plans are Liverpool Vision and the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE).
