The 1 Cambridge Street core is visible and Century House is mid-demolition too on the new earth graphics.

Google Earth's Manchester imagery has been updated again

Dated 24/3/2017

Isn't yet 3D, hopefully the 3D version will be available soon.

This imagery, more than any other for Manchester in the past, shows the transformation Manchester is currently going through. You can see how the city centre is being pulled out in all directions - instead of an industrial grey belt, our city centre is now surrounded by the brown/beige colour of construction sites

Some snippets:-

Owen St

Middlewood Locks/Ordsall Chord area


Ordsall/Castlefield area

SEMMMS winding through south east Manchester

Looks like Woodford Aerodrome near Poynton is no more, it's being redeveloped as a massive housing estate

And a .gif showing the changes in the Greengate area. 2000, 2013 and 2017 (apologies for the rubbish size!):-

Strong and Stable.
