(NEW YORK) -- The city of Liverpool, England was stripped of its World Heritage status on Wednesday, after a U.N. committee determined that the recent construction has been detrimental to its value.

Liverpool was inscribed on the United Nations' Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization's World Heritage List in 2004 for its value as a Maritime Mercantile City. The committee listed it as "in danger" in 2012, over concerns about development within the city.
