Terminal 2 will become the focal point of the Airport...with most airlines operating out of there. It could mean Terminal three effectively becomes a satellite.

Transport for Greater Manchester have released their plans for the redevelopment of Stockport Interchange in South Manchester.

Talks are at an "advanced stage" with Stockport Council and a contractor according to TfGM, with work due to begin in the summer.

Shame it's not around the railway station- long walk in the rain. But looks great, just wrong location?

Wow first of all I want to congratulate all of our mancunian forumers that keep us up to date. As a long time London thread follower I always wondered when will the UK have a second powerhouse, and it's nice to see that Manchester is firing on all cylinders, the whole city centre seems to be under construction.

Towers, new train station, major airport expansion. It's a great come back to the big city leagues for Manchester (let's be honest, it was struggling for a few decades).

The city it's getting some very unique designs, specially the low rise projects that use the "industrial" & "brick" feeling that print a very mancunian feeling.

PS. Im not that familiar with the local geography, but it seems like in the mid-long term the city centre can evolve into an "American-Canadian" style skyline, where most of the high-rises can be seen from some angles.

There is many towns centres and cities centres across the U.K doing well in terms of construction, accommodation, leisure, commercial, transport etc...


Forget all the upcoming high rise towers in Manchester city centre, 50 million pax airport scheme, state of the art football expansions, new neighbourhoods and all the other big scale projects...


When you have schemes like Cornbrook Works and many of the other big projects going on outside the city centre, it goes to show how Manchester is rapidly growing on a broader scale.

Work has now started at the abandoned Mayfield Station on the edge of the city. It will be converted into a sheltered market space and garden, a sun terrace and events space, plus raised offices and work space.

There will also be a four-storey structure built consisting of shipping containers with workspace/pop-up retail units built into them - as well as exhibition and events space, inspired by Pop Brixton in South London.

Some pictures of the station as it currently looks:







The proposal:





This event will go on for three years before the entire 24-acre site is redeveloped into 1,300 new homes, 75,000sqft of office space, hotels, a park and 7,500 jobs.
