Originally found and posted by AJD.

All though it's a model, it will be to scale. The model really shows the scale of Circle Square. It will have a huge impact on Oxford Road and the Manchester skyline. Note the new car park/Hotel, bottom right corner.

The Vita Students blocks are nearing competition. Back 2 blocks. The rest of the buildings are all being built at the same time, and one after another. The 2 office blocks at the front and the car park/Hotel are currently onsite.(stand corrected on that) One of the office buildings is already prelet. Bruntwood are delivering the whole proposal in one go.

MECD is now officially above ground.

UoM MECD‏ @uom_mecd · Dec 12

We are above ground! The MECD site is beginning to transform as we see the building cores rise out of the south basement.

Angel Gardens tower. Under construction.

4 months old, but I've not seen it before. Not to be mixed up with the original CGI video from a few years back. Is short though.
