Green Quarter | Redbank | up to 65m | up to 21 floors

Not much info at the mo, but one to keep an eye on!

I like the office building, it'll complement the two CIS buildings over the road. It has the same sort of timeless simplicity. Shame it's not as tall as the main CIS building, it's in what is arguably the most important northern gateway into Manchester.

True jongy, I wonder what the chances of a tower are at the brewery when it goes, a tower there and some new developments along that immediate stretch of Bury New Rd would be great, the northern side of town needs just as impressive a gateway as the south

I remember Richard Leese advising Interbrew that they wouldn't be able to sell the brewery land for redeveopment once Boddies had carped out it's last tinnie.
Not sure how this could be enforced mind.

I guess we'll have to fan the flames of Vector.

Correct Northbeach!

He said the council would'nt give planning permission for any residential developments even if the site was bought by property developers!

I like the curvy office building.

Is the angular building on the left the hotel? It looks real sixties vanilla, and doesn't go at all with the curvy office building. If so, IMHO this development is crying out for a highrise curvy hotel in the centre and a lowrise curvy retail on the left maybe with some green space and fountains.

Sounds good to me.

I didn't like the look of the hotel building, there looks to be a lot of red brick

The buildings look awkward together! The office devlopment looks fine, but the hotel design looks like a budget hotel!

Hope the hotel gets redesigned to look more like the office?!
