I'm hoping NOMA will deliver a 'killer' announcement tomorrow on the next phase of the development now 1 Angel Square is complete.

This week has been very much "this is what we have done" rather than "this is what we will do".

Hopefully. With Ian Simpson's involvement im very hopeful that the next phase will be top notch.

Not sure what your thoughts are on Simpson's designs

They're all right. Would be nice to see him move away from the orthogonal glass design. He's a bit too one-dimensional.

He's definitely involved. Pretty I saw him lurking around staring at One Angel Square, clipboard in hand, last year.

Ian Simpson is like the Alfred Waterhouse of our day. He's had such a profound effect upon Manchester already!

That's it for another year. HB has just closed MIPIM Manchester.

At least it wasn't the usual guff about proposals that won't happen and flythroughs.(even though we like flythroughs)

It's clear to those who have watched the videos where Manchester is heading.

MIPIM 2014

Here begins the road to MIPIM 2014!

Quote:
Obama adviser Bruce Katz to speak at Manchester MIPIM

23rd September 2013




DISTINGUISHED urban policy expert Bruce Katz, a former adviser to President Obama, will be the keynote speaker at the Manchester at MIPIM European Cities partnership event in 2014.

New York-born, Yale-educated Mr Katz, a vice president of the influential Brookings Institution in Washington, will speak of the importance of co-operation between global trading cities.

He said: “Every time I visit the United Kingdom I gain new insights on regional development. I’m looking forward to joining the Manchester at MIPIM event both to share lessons from The Metropolitan Revolution and to learn from other innovative leaders.”

The annual event at MIPIM is organised in partnership with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, whose mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.

Sir Howard Bernstein, chief executive of Manchester City Council, said: “This is a great addition to the Partnership programme. Bruce is one of the most authoritative figures in the field of urban development and the issues facing metropolitan areas.

“His participation, along with other significant industry figures will be a serious draw and place Manchester firmly at the heart of the MIPIM discussion.”

In November, Mr Katz will visit Manchester as part of a tour to promote The Metropolitan Revolution: How Cities and Metros Are Fixing Our Broken Politics and Fragile Economy, a book he co-authored with Jennifer Bradley.

He led the housing and urban issues transition team for the Obama administration in 2008. He also served as a senior advisor to the secretary of housing and urban development, Shaun Donovan, for the first 100 days of the administration.

Mr Katz, who originally trained as a lawyer, has written numerous papers on urban policy, and in 2006 won the 12th Annuak Heinz Award for public policy for "re-imagining the function and values of cities and metropolitan areas and profoundly influencing their economic vitality, livability and sustainability."

MIPIM takes place in Cannes between March 11-14.

Better analogies would be Crickshank & Seward or Leach Rhodes Walker, architects whose buildings shaped the 1960/70’s Manchester skyline. They too appear to have had the council planners bend to their singular design aesthetic; destroying both heritage buildings and perfectly functional existing buildings to supplant their work on the city without always moving us forward.

It will be interesting to see if Ian Simpson’s work 30years hence sustains (in a way Waterhouse’s work has done for over a century) or, like the aforementioned Architects, is defended only by a small clique of architect students whilst the rest of the populace demands demolition.

Ive got a feeling the optimism may be starting to return after a couple of muted shows since 2011 when the optimism that continued through the global recession finally ran out of steam.

Manchester and Liverpool team up for MIPIM
27th February 2014

MAYOR of Liverpool Joe Anderson and Manchester's chief executive Sir Howard Bernstein are teaming up for an event at the MIPIM international property convention.

They will discuss the impact of the Liverpool 2 Superport which is under construction and Peel Group's Atlantic Gateway scheme - a ribbon of development along the ship canal between the two cities.

The event on March 11 will also feature a discussion chaired by Baroness Susan Williams, executive director of the Atlantic Gateway Partnership, on the potential of the two cities as centres for the logistics sector.

Liverpool is returning to MIPIM for the first time since 2011. It will also be promoting the International Festival for Business 2014 (IFB 2014), which is being held in for 50 days in June and July.

Liverpool is being represented at MIPIM through private sector support from firms including: Brabners, Bruntwood, Castlewood Property Management, Countryside Properties, Deloitte, Grosvenor, Harcourt Developments, ISG, Liverpool Business Improvement District, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Superport freight and logistics hub.

Max Steinberg, who is also chair of IFB 2014, said: “During the course of the last year, we have established a closer working relationship with Manchester particularly through the promotion of the International Festival for Business, the first in a series of important projects that can bring economic benefit to both cities.

“Our joint event at MIPIM reflects the desire for the two cities to work together and both cities’ leaders are firm in their commitment to presenting the investment opportunities in the wider geographical area which is represented here in the nationally significant Atlantic Gateway initiative.”

When MIPIM has finished and my colleague has returned with my copy of this years guide (I designed an advert in there for another country), I'll be posting images of the Manchester advert and anything else which may be of interest.
