I'm digging that idea, ferge. You can kinda see a similar effect with the way the light is reflecting from the windows in the picture

Seems Sarah Tower is going up. Didn't expect it so soon, if at all. BSC have it on their site, someone has taken the website name www.sarahtower.com, and there is a huge hole on site. Didn't even know there was full permission for a tower there.

BSC must be getting some pennies in the bank, what with IQ, Sarah and Gt Ancoats on the go.

You're right, there doesn't seem to be any information about them apart from contact details.

Had a lovely break. Thanks for asking

Thanks dgnr8 for what is for me, among one of the most interesting posts of the last few weeks.



http://www.dmdurban.ie/chapelton.html

I love to see images of exciting masterplans - especially ones that promise to utterly transform a non descript, derelict bit of wasteland such as this.

I never realised how large this piece of land is and what potential it holds what with Piccadilly Station on one side, Mancunian Way on the other (sweeping down from its elevated section) and the river Irwell running through the centre there.

If this bit of land is developed as it promises to be in those images I will be delighted. Piccadilly has seen so many examples of poor quality, smallscale and piecemeal development... its about time somebody took a large piece of land and proposed something of the scale and ambition of Spinningfields, say.

I wonder who the land owners / developers might be here?

"Chapelton", Manchester, UK

Mixed use framework plan for c. 35 acres of currently rundown industrial space sandwiched between the main [Piccadilly] Station and the Mancunian Way inner distributor route.

The plan sought to link the area back to its hinterland and to capitalise on its highly strategic location adjacent to Manchester’s primary train station. Proposed uses include a significant element of new office and business space, hugging the Mancunian Way with a residential core focused on a new river corridor along the river Medlock

Still find it hard to get excited about a project where they can't be bothered to get the sodding station names right, with that level of attention to detail I doubt it will ever see the light of day.
