So, the lad who did the open construction site 101 Embankment tour last year was right. It was posted on here long before the press found out.

Yes it was said along time ago and I have seen him going in and out a few times as I live around the corner and walk this way everyday. Apparently he has had the whole top floor kitted out into his penthouse apartment. It's supposed to look amazing as I was speaking to a member of the city suites team a few days ago.

He's such a comical character, very meme-able.

Oh dear, did I forget to upload these last week? Looks like they took the hoardings away from the doors, but doesn't look like they're ready to move in. Ought to get a move on with this one.

It needs a wash. Genuinely, get up close to it, and it's covered in dust all over the glass and cladding. Really hoping it gets a clean. It's cheapening it.

Who writes the copy these days? -

"The 16-storey building hosts 237 one and two-bedroom apartments that all come complete with their own kitchens (with oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, washer and coffee machine) as well as a spacious living room area."

I would expect so at that price!

Does the journo live in student flats where the bathroom and kitchen etc are shared?!

Quote from an article in the MEN, the unit looks to be a new restaurant

Quote:
And adding the cherry to the cake later this year will be the arrival of a Michelin Starred chef to the site - for Tim Allen has just been confirmed to take over the building’s restaurant space on the ground floor.

Tbh who cares that we don't have one? There are plenty of restaurants in Manchester that serve amazing food and aren't Michelin. In fact a Michelin starred restaurant is an excuse for the restauranteur to bump the price up.

I agree.

But I meant SPG are hoping for a Michelin star here, not me personally that's why they've hired a Michelin star chef to run the place.

I don't care about a Michelin star restaurant. I wouldn't go personally, but i am certain a city of Manchester's size and status should have one by now! it appears to be just bloody mindedness from the assessors that we haven't got one this year!

There’s a new illuminated sign that’s been attached to the front of the building today, at the corner on the top / roof level.

It says CitySuites and looks smart. Unfortunately no picture as it was dark and my camera phone is a bit bobbins.
