"Hatch" - Manchester's knock-off version of London's Boxpark - is now nearing completion. It will feature small, independent retailers, street food outlets and everything else you could possibly wish for to hipsterise your Instagram account

It's also underneath a motorway, which just ramps up the edgy/cool factor

Complete - currently 4
Under construction - currently 7 (two of which have already breached the 100m barrier)
Approved - currently 11

So if (big if) all buildings currently approved for Manchester are delivered, Manchester will have 23 buildings over 100m

Not that impressive on a global scale, but when you consider the UK has traditionally been very conservative over tall buildings (village green preservation society and all that) it's quite a feat, and plenty more to come hopefully. We're a tiny country, there's only so much our cities can expand outwards before we have to start going upwards.

There's something hilariously and depressingly British about a wonderful piece of engineering like the Ordsall Chord being shown off with a shitty Pacer flying over it

New Square.

Good to see this progressing well. Will make a huge and positive impact. The original proposal and site has been stalled for years.The final piece of the jigsaw for this area of the city centre.

Manchester forecast to be UK’s strongest performing city

Quote:
Manchester is forecast to be the UK’s strongest performing city until 2020, with its annual GVA (gross value added) and employment growth both top of the city league tables.

EY’s annual UK Regional Economic Forecast says that Manchester’s GVA will see a predicted annual increase of 2.4% between 2017 and 2020 – ahead of the capital and neck-and-neck with Reading – whilst employment growth will lead the pack at 1.2% a year, equivalent to almost 15,000 net new jobs.

The forecast also reflects an overall slowdown in the UK’s economic growth, particularly in the traditionally strong south.

Liverpool, meanwhile, will see GVA hold steady at 1.4% to 2020, although employment growth is expected to follow the general trend with a reduction in growth from 1% (2014 to 2017) to 0.1% (2017 to 2020).

Liverpool’s performance is much more closely aligned to the wider North West, which is predicted to have an annual GVA growth rate of 1.5% to 2020, with growth expected across all sectors except public administration.
