Time & Tide sets sights on 20-storey Manchester tower

Lancaster-based developer Time & Tide is to submit a planning application for a £58m, 20-storey tower in the Piccadilly area of central Manchester.

The developer wants to build the 220,000 sq ft scheme on the corner of Great Ancoats Street and Store Street, close to Inacity's planned tower development.

The scheme will comprise 250 residential and live-work units as well as a 3,500 sq ft retail unit fronting Great Ancoats Street.

As well as the 20-storey tower, a "satellite" building of 7 storeys will also be included in the scheme.

The development will be aimed at the owner occupier market, rather than investors.

John Asplin, director of Time & Tide, said: "The Manchester site has huge potential and represents a real step in Time and Tide's development.

"Piccadilly is growing quickly and investment such as this will be critical to the regeneration of Piccadilly and the ongoing revitalisation of the wider area."

Consultation on the Manchester scheme is expected to begin later this month and a decision on planning is anticipated in the autumn.

Cheers MarkyDD. Didn't Mr Bashir- of BSC say this area will be Manchester's downtown? Looks like the 'stretched-out time-scale building mogul' has got his finger on the pulse!

Lets landscape Dale stret car park into our very own central park. Lots of grass, canals, skyscrapers, central location just off the beaten track. It'd be perfick.

Can't quite believe the amount of proposed 20+ story towers for Manchester and Salford we've dug up in the last two weeks.

Indeed, 'Downtown Manchester' sounds a real possibilty.

I'm assuming this is the site of the former White House pub that was recently demolished.

I don't think so; that's not actually Store St and the plans for that are no way near 20 storey.
