Loving the sound of this.

The homes will be for sale, and the design looks pretty decent - ground floor retail included. Why couldn't they have done the same at New Union St?

Good find. This is still considered Phase One however, which is good to know.

Bigger render:





More stuff like this please. Simple yet elegant, and it'll do wonders for the streetscape in this area.

Could do with some grass tbh. It would soften the square and appeal more to residents.

or if not grass then more trees to make a canopy in late spring/ summer/ autumn continental square style. To barren in those pics.

I didn't want to say but it looks rather depressing, the lack of grass and a decent bench or two makes it look like a bit of an after thought, must be why everyone in the render is turning away from the 'square' instead of interacting with it in any way.

With the church and the unfussy residential/eateries on either side of the square it reminds me of the squares you see in a lot of European cities, particularly the Gracia area in Barcelona.

Seems crazy that this is quite possibly the first of it's kind in Central Manchester.

I think it will be fantastic once complete.

St Ann's Square without the phone shops? Either way, looks good to me.

Royal Mills residents seem very sceptical about this one - they think it will be a carpark

Itís a fairly vast chunk of land in the context of the scheme and whilst not universally popular by SSC consensus, but it will finish off a large corner of New Islington, connecting with Ancoats.

GShutty, I think you got photobombed by a duck (on the far right of your pic)

Looks pretty cool. Better than the Hood Street/Cutting Room Square shite thats been proposed.

Much better than what I thought it would be. Liking the big windows and the woven gate.
