This is not really within Ancoats Urban Village - more for the East Manchester thread but it does border it.

Never been keen on this building. Still think its a terrible shame what it replaced in Alsop's designs for this site. I await further renders but most of Broadway Malyan's schemes in Manchester are flawed in one way or another, in my opinion, so on that basis I dont hold out much hope.

Stairway to heaven?

I think it looks quite interesting, I like the 'steps' in the building, ensures its not another boring glass block.

I think they said they'd be using copper and sandstone, which should make it look classy close up.

It's on Gt Ancoats Street between the retail park and that group of new buildings one of which is Ovale.

Took a photo of the ISIS site about 2 weeks ago, there was nothing happening then......


So ISIS are the developers for the whole scheme are they?

cheers caw, I didn't realise it was so close to Ancoats St..I like it anyway, no idea about the developers..

What sort of potential do we reckon Ancoats St has got? I know its a bit grotty in places but I've always liked it, its a bit hostile for pedestrians though, it needs some sort of street level activity, decent bars, cafes' more galleries would be nice, it just seems under estimated to me, I think Ancoats St could become a really cool street with a bit of thought..

EDIT] OH and they need to tear down that bleeding retail park

Its on the left if youre travelling down great ancoats street, oppisite that new Ivla store. I quite like it personally, though like Rolybling says the area needs sorting out for pedestrians.

I haven't got any images of this one. Broadway Malyan (I can hear some of you groaning already) are the architects. Its a revised app as the original one incorporated a refurbished mill building which burnt down.

Here's a link to their website. They seem to have done some quite nice stuff.

Design response: The striking mixed-use scheme features a 21-storey landmark tower in sandstone and copper

Oooh. I like this University of Salford Law School proposal:

I don't know its status, but IMHO that is nice!

Im still very skeptical about ISIS Wharf. There are a few things which make me uphappy.

Firstly, look at the lowrise block and how the design has been almost completely replicated from BM's Eirie basin scheme. Thats just cheap.

Secondly its the shape and massing of the blocks. They are mere objects with apparently little visual relationship to each other. Looking at the renders I cannot get any intuative sense of the characteristics of the area they are located in, the layout of the site nor the direction and relative importance of the road and canal. In other words, this set of buildings seems to display all the inherent faults of Eire Basin and.... Piccadilly Plaza! I would dearly love to be proved entirely wrong here. Maybe there is some subtlety which the renders can't convey but BM's shemes to date dont fill me with confidence.

That Law school looks interesting - amost Alsop-esque. Why its in this thread Im not sure though!
