Then there's the midrise office tower that is supposed to go next to it, though Beetham will not build this until they have sufficient prelets.

Yes, but 171m is not a bad to get the ball rolling again for Manchester. The last two buildings over 100m were built in the 1960's.(City tower and CIS tower)
