Yes all the above. The hotel is awful I am surprised it hasn't been closed down. The new hotel will be an improvement and as long as the city doesn't become packed with budget hotels and a balance is reached between all levels of quality so visitors of all budgets are catered for.

Zero humour. Its not a spelling mistake. Iíd wager you actually thought it was spelt like that. Must be some life over there considering you post daily in a forum about Manchester and a thread about a few crappy buildings up for the wrecking ball?

Ahhh such a smart ass you think you know me too. I have lived in Manchester all my life and have been posting in this forum for the past few years. I have a home in Manchester but work out here because the UK economy is a disaster zone and they pay 4 times as much here. Now fuck off and get back to posting your usual crap.

I sympathise with this argument but I still don't think it's enough to stop the owner of the property developing it. I don't understand why there can't be a new venue? Have legends said they're not going to carry on if this goes ahead or are they just not considering that yet? I was trying to think of another location which is similar to this in terms of its relationship with Canal Street, Harter Street maybe?

I'm guessing Legends are tenants and probably have sod all say except for objecting to the planning permission. The could move, I bet there is quite a few places the could inhabit. If there is so much pent up demand for rock nights a chance to move to a bigger venue might be good for them?

From Manchester Histories Festival. Certainly some resonance with Legends / Twisted Wheel...

Band on the Wall: Portraits and Performances. From the music venue’s archives, a showreel of performances 2009-2011 plus a selection of still photographs of musicians at the venue, 1988-95. Also, information about the venue’s 19th century history when it was a market pub, on the doorstep of the Industrial Revolution.

Cheers Flange.

Had a look this morning. Only the Planning application was up. Obviously added the rest today.

Damn, that looks good.

A few design tweaks and changes from the original render.



To the one now in for planning.



With more windows added and less blank wall space, certainly a nice looking addition and with the addition of the bronze cladding in the windows and others areas of the building too, could be really good.

Like the fact that the tower element has become one neat building rather than separate bits in the original pre planning render. The drops in height are more pleasing - it tumbles down to the Fire Station.

Has Manchester got a job lot on anodised bronze - not that I'm complaining.
