Please let it happen.

But, when an Architect includes it on their website, and the proposal is still under development and being kept secret, it normally means it isn't the winning submission.

Where Penoy & Reprasad on the Urban & Civic shortlist?

Quote:
Deansgate


Client

Manchester City Council
Urban & Civic
Completed
2017


The Renaissance Hotel is situated on a three quarters of a hectare site – a spatially prominent and historically significant position at the eastern end of Deansgate. Facing the Cathedral and historical Medieval Quarter and along the edge of the retail district, the site is bounded by the river Irwell, which is a full two storeys below street level.

Our scheme aims to bring out what is most attractive and compelling about the site while fulfilling the client’s ambitious brief: 800 apartments, a hotel, retail and a new public space. It makes manifest the potential beauty of the river edge that has been long hidden, and connects places previously separate. A colonnade runs at ground and first floor levels along Deansgate, connecting Blackfriars and Victoria bridges, and through this colonnade will be glimpsed the river and the public terraces leading down to it. Two towers mark the two bridges and other apartments and the hotel above the colonnade play off the cornice line of Deansgate. The elevations are a composition in high performance glazing and terracotta with fins in an arrangement reminiscent of warp and weft on looms.

We have approached the making of what must become a distinguished, attractive building and place in the city by thinking about how they will be experienced from within as environment, from nearby as tactile encounter, from middle distances as part of an urban composition and from afar as part of the skyline – large scale modern buildings that people will love.

My genuine reaction to the last picture was simply 'wow'. I love it

Looks great in this render, but in reality it would probably better if it stepped down towards the Cathedral and medieval quarter and then got taller towards Deansgate. The developers are trying to profit from the proximity to the most beautiful and historic views, but it will undermine the area for everyone else.

Agreed, not sold on these photos whatsoever. Just two great big hunking blocks plonked in an incredibly sensitive area. We need something a lot more thoughtful and incremental here, not just a hulking mass of skyscraper

Another new cracking tower proposal for Manchester.

Unlike the other one, which sadly won't be built, this is definitely a possibility.

Ok so Tim Groom has just post this on twitter. He's being very mysterious but I think it may please some people. The design is very similar to one which has been proposed in New York recently.

I think its part of the Great Jackson Street framework (F3 foreground and G1 & G2 in background) 42 storeyish at it's tallest. The low rise on the left looks like City South.

Our take on a Mancunian Tower. More details coming soon. @Troyhodgson @TimGroomArc
So it's either this, or at least something possibly similar? Either way, with Tim Groom we will get something very good.

I was surprised by this also, especially as (very) old proposals for this site did precisely that;

A Quick Update on the Lightbox MediaCityUK...

I know there is a second Lighbox to go up, and I think a large car park but this is further up from those I think.

Potentially another tower being proposed for the Great Jackson district. Tim Groom architects have tantalisingly shared this image

I cant help feeling, that this building has a certain "New York" style and feel about it.

Indeed, it has a similar vibe to David Adjaye's Lower Manhattan skyscraper proposal
