Quantum gravity with anisotropic scaling exhibits a rich structure of phases and phase transitions, dominated by multicritical behavior dependent on the spacetime dimension and the dynamical critical exponent. I will discuss some features of this phase structure, as well as its similarities and differences in comparison to the CDT approach to quantum gravity.
