For a 1 bed apartment CC @ £260,000 I would expect a high standard finish.

The proposal/development is up for sale.

There is an add in Property Week, and JLL are handling the sale.

The people/company behind this proposal have got planning permission and are trying to sell it on for a tidy profit.

Another day, another block of apartments for the city centre.

The cladding/exterior looks very interesting. See second render.

This time on Great Ancoats Street, once again.

Oh! Can anyone place those tall greyed out towers behind, and to the right of it? Hmmm?


109784/FO/2015/C2 | Construction of a new 13 storey building comprising of 119 apartments on the upper floors (Floors 1-12, Class C3) and two new ground floor retail/commercial units (Classes A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, B1, D1 (Nursery)and D2 Gymnasium) and new public realm proposals, highways, engineering and associated works. | 47 Houldsworth Street Manchester M1 2ES

Place North West.

Quote:
Developer sought for Northern Gateway homes 7

Sep 2015, 14:02

Manchester Place has launched the search for a long-term private sector investment partner to deliver the residential-led regeneration of a 350-acre site to the North of the city.

Manchester Place is a collaboration between Manchester City Council and the Homes & Communities Agency created to look at the home building needed to support the city’s economic and population growth ambitions.

Referred to by the council as the Northern Gateway, the area extends in a north eastern arc from Victoria Station including the neighbourhoods of NOMA, the Lower Irk Valley, New Cross and Collyhurst, covering around 350-acres.

It is estimated that the neighbourhoods could support up to 7,000 new homes in the next 10 to 15-year period. - See more at:

great ancoats street is really filling up, with that and the other block next to it then it'll look pretty dramatic!

So I thought I'd see what this would potentially look like with the other apartment block proposed. They compliment each other. Looks pretty damn good

I was a little skeptical at first but they do seem to compliment each other pretty well.
Some more images and videos on here...

Which led to this concept skyscraper extension of the MacDonald hotel at Piccadilly which I hadn't seen before...

Not keen on that myself. Looks rather amateurish/sketchup.

It's like they've taken the MacDonald hotel facade and multiplied it, then stacked the results.

Too Dubai for me.

that said none of us would be grumbling I'm sure, if this came on to being. That part of the city so feels very ' fringe' at present. It would prove an excellent marker for the Mcdonald hotel, especially that close to Piccadilly.

The two apartment schemes side by side look awesome. Really make you wonder what Ancoats will look like on ten years!..Drooling at the thought.

It looks similar to the Setai Hotel on Miami Beach, which would be a welcome addition in my opinion.
Either way, it's interesting that MacDonald Hotels are/were considering something like this.

HS2, I should think. It would be silly for any business in its orbit not to have a think about about how they could make the most of it. That said, if MacDonald actually build something close to that size I shall eat my own face.

I'm not exactly the biggest fan of the design... It could be much better!

But this is what excites me...

Quote:
Requested directly by the Chief Executive, I was asked to produce initial concepts for a skyscraper design extension for the Macdonald Hotel Manchester.

In a prime location opposite the main Piccadilly train station in Manchester, the brief was for a multi-function apartment, hotel and student accomodation scheme. Due to its location it was decided that the new design should be a landmark building in Manchester and rise above the current tallest building in Manchester the Beetham Tower. The aim of the design was largely to champion Macdonald Hotels and provide accommodation close to the city's busiest station.

I was given thanks from the chief executive Donald Macdonald for my design.
Surely something must be going on? I don't see why they'd get an architect to design such a building without any plans to build something?
