The CIS Tower | 25 floors | 118m

Inspired by the phallic tendancies of Swiss Re in the Country's capital, the Cooperative Insurance Society today announced a new landmark tower for Manchester, their 38 Storey tower, modelled on the chairman's.

It will be built on Shudehill and stand proudly, with an incandescent glow about it during the night. They have released a single render of this bold and excited project.

It'd make a fine addition to our skyline, I heard it actually grows 20 storeys when enough people enter it.

Fantastic.

I hope it has some kind of ride or amusement. How about a ride where you get into a moist white sack and get violently fired out of the tip of the building. 200ftx200ft giant tissues will be placed around the edges of the city centre to catch the ejected people, though some may miss and be fired into buildings and onto roads, but the sack is very soft and durable and will protect people from injury, You could charge £5 a go and make an absolute fortune.












Who will repent my sins?
