MANCHESTER | Albany Assets Crown Tower | 130-160m | 54 fl | App


(This is the 130 metre design).
A new mixed use(residentail/office/hotel scheme for Manchester Uk comprising of:

-330,000 square ft. mixed use scheme over 44 floors.
-140,000 ft. of Hotel space covering 23 floors.
-Scheme completion date at 2010.(my arse )

The tower currently is 130 metres tall but is at the moment getting 10 floors added to the design which is where the 160 metre figure came from.

A box,but a bloody nice one

Bit of a boring design but the height is very good, good news for Manchester!

Here's a look at what you could have built!



This a reality? We should be so lucky!

Very similar to Beetham, i do like the glass pattern but its already been done on Beetham in Manchester and apart from the pattern is quite boring.

Theres still hope!

A small snippet on the front page of crains today say this is to be resubmitted. It will still be 40-odd storeys and be a mix of hotel and 237 flats.
