Dunno pal. Nobody seems in a hurry to clarify. But my 'geek-omiter' spider sense screams that Andrew stands fith-from-left. And what a figure he cuts.

Looked like a good day that, hope your hosts give you all coffee and biscuits

Not sure who everyone is but I reckon Jrb is the guy sat down , or the guy in the middle a bit more forward than the rest, dressed quite smartly.

With the magnificent view of Manchester City Centre from the rooftop..

They should have changed the premises from "Rooftop Restaurant" to "20/20 VISION"..

Too late now, unless D&D Manchester Limited make a last minute change.

Seems a somewhat odd decision given there's already a tall bar with a floor count of 20+ in the city.

Cloud 23 and 20 Stories could easily be confused.

Really? I don't see how.

On the D&D website too. No doubt the interior will be something to do with books/libraries/Manchester stories. I love the dual meanings of their restaurants and interiors.

Schroders pays £200m for No1 Spinningfields

13 Oct 2017, 12:42

Jessica Middleton-Pugh

In the biggest single office acquisition to take place in the region’s history, Schroders Investment Management has exchanged contracts to buy Allied London’s recently completed No1 Spinningfields for around £200m, equating to a 5% yield, on behalf of Japanese investors.

The 300,000 sq ft tower is the final major part of Manchester’s key commercial district, and reached practical completion in August, with Bam Construction handing the building over to developer Allied London.

Designed by SimpsonHaugh, No1 was 90% let prior to completion, including to PwC, which has increased its tenancy in the building from 50,000 sq ft to 93,000 sq ft.

Other occupiers include Squire Patton Boggs and WeWork, which signed for 60,000 sq ft in June. An M&S Foodhall opened on the ground floor last week, while high-end restaurant operator D&D London is fitting out its restaurant on the 19th floor.

The deal by Schroders, advised by Metis Real Estate, looks to be the largest commercial property deal in the North West’s recent history. Previously, Deka Immobilien’s purchase of One St Peter’s Square from Argent and GMPVF for £164m last year held the top spot. In 2014, M&G Real Estate paid £320m for two Spinningfields offices, One Spinningfields Square and One Hardman Square. In the same year, Schroders acquired City Tower from Bruntwood for £132m.

On the edge of Salford, M&G Real Estate acquired 101 Embankment for £103m in July, from Ask, Carillion and Tristan Capital Partners.

The Liverpool market has also shown a healthy investor appetite for offices this year, with L&G taking the landmark India Buildings, recently let to HMRC, for £125m from Shelborn Asset Management.

Although a deal for a whole business estate, last month Warrington Council confirmed it was buying Birchwood Park from Patrizia and Oaktree for £200m.

Didn't it only cost £73m to build? Not a bad profit margin there.

Now they can get cracking with St John's.

Whoa! Amazing pic Dan.
I guess a few of us will be taking pictures from '20 Floors' next year.
Certainly when I'm back home next Spring, I'll be going.

THIS

I thought the exact same thing when I saw it for the first time and thought “oh, is that it?!”

Very disappointing.

Given they managed to scoop The Ivy and D&D a Booths would have been the cherry on the top.

Totally agree a booths would have been better. I just feel that’s this is a let down from what they were saying it was going to be. Also the size of the unit doesn’t seem right to me compared with concept art
