Radio City Tower
St John's Beacon 1 Houghton Street
The construction of St John's Beacon began in 1965, it's main purpose to provide a ventilation shaft for the shopping complex below. Standing 138 metres above sea level, the tower is the second tallest in Liverpool, dwarfed only by the recently erected Beetham West Tower.
The beacon became famous as a revolving restaurant, opening in 1970 until it's closure some eight years later. Other than a brief stint in the early 1980's, the beacon remained closed for over 21 years, until both Radio City and Land Securities breathed new life in the tower, investing millions in it's redevelopment, and remains today home to Radio City's 7 state-of-the-art digital studios, offices and function rooms.
