MANCHESTER | 10-12 Whitworth Street West | 115m | 37 fl | Pro

Another high rise proposal for Manchester!

It's being funded by a 'Russian oligarch'

NEW: Major New 37-Storey Tower For MCR



Quote:
ARCHITECTS 5plus have designs on the southern gateway to the city centre.

Quote:

The new tower combined with Axis and Beetham Tower at the other end of Deansgate will create a whole new urban profile for the city centre. We're almost talking a 'cluster': one of architecture's favourite words.


In November 2014 planning permission was secured for a 27-storey residential tower, Axis, on the north side of Rochdale Canal at the junction of Trafford Street and Albion Street. If you know Deansgate Locks that's the empty plot of land on the eastern end of this railway arcade of drinking sheds.

Now, and with a much cleaner design, 5plus Architects have put together an excellent proposal thirty metres away across the canal, at 10-12 Whitworth Street West. This will be much taller and at 37 storeys the third highest tower in the city - just missing out by a single metre on second spot. It's height will be 117m (384ft).

For the record, Beetham Tower is 168m (552ft), the CIS Tower is 118m (387ft), City Tower is 107m (351ft) and Student Castle is 106m (347ft).

The new tower combined with Axis at 93m (305ft) and Beetham Tower at the other end of Deansgate will create a whole new urban profile for the city centre. We're almost talking a 'cluster': one of architecture's favourite words.

Apologies, planning permission hasn't yet been received but has been recommended by the Council Committee meeting. The decision has been deferred until 19th November. Lets hope it is approved!

Internal works appear to be taking place by a contractor called CPMS. Taken by me:
