Ballymore put the plot up for sale in June 2016. Shortly before doing that they updated their website to what it currently is. I'd pay no attention to it.

We need to lock this thread until something concrete (excuse the pun) is announced about a new buyer.

Yeah the only reason it's still up on their site is probably because it displays ambition.

You're blowin' on embers lads. Do the right thing eh? Surely all of us agree that it is obscene and a pish take of the Manc' forum for this to be featured on page one? Save that for the other provincials who desperately latch on to 'proposed' schemes.
This is the Manc' forum so let it die and stop embarrassing ourselves. Rather focus on realistic projects and the wealth that we have presently U/C.
Lecture over.

All that was done before Ballymore's involvement and although it has been on their list of future projects for as long as I can remember, it hasn't progressed one iota. Look at how many London projects of theirs have been started and completed since they owned the site. I think that tells you about their commitment to the project. It's a nice car park though.

This was a bit of a tiddler compared to Owen Street wasn't it? Lol.

I remember when everyone fetishised about this tower years back during the darkest depths of the recession as it seemed the only high-rise that even had a remote chance of being built. How times change! Now Piccadilly Tower is like the 40 year old who is past it. Move on folks.
