(This is the 130 metre design).
A new mixed use(residentail/office/hotel scheme for Manchester Uk comprising of:
-330,000 square ft. mixed use scheme over 44 floors.
-140,000 ft. of Hotel space covering 23 floors.
-Scheme completion date at 2010.(my arse :) )
The tower currently is 130 metres tall but is at the moment getting 10 floors added to the design which is where the 160 metre figure came from.
A box,but a bloody nice one :D

Bit of a boring design but the height is very good, good news for Manchester!

This a reality? We should be so lucky!

Very similar to Beetham, i do like the glass pattern but its already been done on Beetham in Manchester and apart from the pattern is quite boring.

Theres still hope!
A small snippet on the front page of crains today say this is to be resubmitted. It will still be 40-odd storeys and be a mix of hotel and 237 flats.
New website coming soon.
We haven't lost Crown yet.
Can we read anything into the new logo? (redesigned tower)
