Is this Sir Norman Foster's first project in his home city?

There was a digger near the entrance to the site today. Probably just something to do with the road but you never know. I'll keep an eye out.

Recent article from the MEN on it. Sep 19th 2011:
http://menmedia.co.uk/manchestereven...pital-revealed




This is the first image of the new £70m Manchester hospital designed by the man behind the new Wembley Stadium.

Stockport-born Norman Foster has designed the 600-patient ‘health campus’ in Didsbury.

The hospital will occupy the former Withington Hospital site, off Princess Parkway, and will be part of the Didsbury Point development.

It will have facilities to carry out scans, tests and operations.

It will also be able to provide intensive care for people following complex surgery and will have the latest digital operating theatres.

The four-storey hospital will mainly cater for private patients but bosses at healthcare partnership Circle, which is behind the project, also hope to gain contracts from the NHS.

Outline planning permission has already been granted by Manchester council and it expects to open its doors to the first patients in 2013.

Bosses say Lord Foster's design is intended to take advantage of nature, streaming natural light through the building. It will create ‘healing gardens’ and courtyards, to aid patient recovery and create a ‘calm and natural environment’.

Ali Parsa, Circle’s chief executive, said: “Our new hospital will be co-owned and operated by a large number of local clinicians, who have come together with the single aim of setting new standards of excellence in patient care.”

I'm very confused about this one. Are they knocking down the current hospital on burton road and replacing it with this? All by 2013?

It's a private hospital to be built on what is currently empty land next to the Princess Parkway.

It's here
