Oohhhhh exciting.

Of course we should be hearing soon-ish about the Great Northern tower/s. Is this in your list Civstu. What's your tipple

The city centre could really bulk up if we can keep sustained growth for even five years. Exciting times but nervy. I think this has tempered some of the euphoria that would otherwise surround a development such as Owen Street and the Exchange (even though they're Renaker). Cautious optimism....

Yeah I'm still very cautious about Owen St. It's just such a giant project, ten years ago it would've been utterly unviable in Manchester - and ten years ago we were at what many consider to be the UK's economic peak in the 21st century so far.

Sustained growth would be amazing, but this year really has been a rocky road politically/economically and socially. Tough times ahead for America, which is still the world's richest country - and although I don't personally believe Donald Trump will last until June 2017 without being impeached/assassinated/quitting he could still do a lot of damage to the world - and that's not even considering the fact that his finger - his thin-skinned, untolerating finger - is on the nuclear button now.

Now owned by Beech Holdings

Beech expands city portfolio with Castlefield project

Residential developer Beech Holdings has bought a prominent plot on the corner of Manchester’s Deansgate and Chester Road, with planning permission for 53 apartments, from a company led by property investor Bill Wrather.

Knott Mill Securities, of which Wrather is director, was granted consent earlier this year for a 13-storey tower, near to the Bridgewater Viaduct in Castlefield.

The building, designed by Ombler Iwanowski Architects, includes 53 apartments and a ground floor commercial unit. The flats are a mix of one and two-bedrooms.

Beech plans to implement the scheme as approved, and has started on site with clearance works. According to the company, it has also signed the contract for hoarding and civils works.

The plot lies on the edge of the Great Jackson Street regeneration area of Manchester, and is next to Owen Street, where Renaker is currently on site with its skyscraper cluster which will total 1,500 flats. Renaker recently put in a planning application for 188 flats in two buildings, also on Chester Road.

Turley advised Knott Mill Securities on the planning application.

Beech is increasingly active in Manchester city centre. Known for renovating unloved buildings in prime locations, the company delivers environmentally sustainable and efficiently designed apartments, targeted at young professional renters.

Beech Holdings owns £65m of residential housing stock in Greater Manchester, including several city centre buildings and another 120 properties in the region.

Next door, Beech Holdings is starting on site imminently with the construction of a 13-storey block at the corner of Deansgate and Chester Road, made up of 53 apartments. According to managing director Stephen Beech, the developer has had to book a crane from Spain in order to deliver the project, due to the high level of demand for UK equipment.

Anyone looking for a bit of extra cash should start a tower crane company

Thought I'd noticed the top of a digger's arm poking above the hoardings when I went by yesterday, looking forward to seeing this teeny little lowrise go up

I can't see that being a problem.

1. It's a Sunday
2. They've probably finished prep for the next stage

So we may see more activity soon?

Great updates btw jrb!

Apparently there is a shortage of cranes due to all the construction work going on in the City according to the MEN. The following extract is quite interesting......."Stephen Beech, of property firm Beech Holdings, for example, has ordered a crane from Spain to build a project dubbed Deansgate South."

I have been vocal against 2-4 Chester Road which is in a conservation area (and St Michaels because it is an abomination), so I feel I should show some positivity.

This one makes sense that it should be this height; it is in the councils designated tall, high mass building area.

I feel for the other smaller buildings in the knott mill area but other than that this is the way it should be. The council designates a large empty brownfield site and lets the developers battle it out for height and mass, brilliant. Thats healthy city development, not a conservation area so go nuts.

Lets see some piling rigs on here please.

So this you're fine with, but the far sharper 2-4 Chester Street you're not?

How fricking bizarre.

The design is not my preference, but the height and mass make sense is what I said.

This piece of land is higher than 2-4 Chester Road. So while in terms of pure storeys this is much shorter, it won't actually look that way.
