oh aye no doubt about it being a great thing.
Which reminds me, I remember in the mid 90s getting on a boat at Castlefield went all the way out to the Quays and back again - great ride then must be superb now. Does it still run? Can't remember the name of the operator - the boat had a kind of Amsterdam feel to it I seem to remember.....

Actually I'm getting annoyed, not paranoid!

Try using a bit of imagination like Sleepy and Jongeman! Look beyond the planning apllication and Visualize the eventual outcome !

Its somthing to get excited about!

That was quick!

Spectrum from Victoria Station


An update of Fusion - looks like there's been a fire in a Salford tower block


The Edge


How can we let such shit go up in this day and age?

Caw - I presume that phase of The Edge was built with the expectation of future buildings going up directly behind. Still a bit tawdry isn't it?

jrb - thanks. That looks like an image related to the visioning work fuksas architects have been doing for the Central Salford URC. By the way I notice in Salford Central station there are images of the refurbished and enlarged station. It says there will be a direct bridge link to Spinningfields which is interesting. They are clearly intent on making the area surrounding the station into a commercial hub.

Back to Peel and their new canal arm and water taxi!

Taken from the Trafford planning apps!

Quote:
Ref Proposal
H/63055 Land bounded by Trafford Way, Trafford Boulevard, Redclyffe Road and the Manchester Ship Canal, Trafford Park.
Formation of a new canal arm and water taxi basin and associated infrastructure including erection of a new storage and maintenance building; formation of a new access road from Redclyffe Road; erection of a bridge over the proposed canal arm on the alignment of the Old Barton Road and car and coach parking. (Application received 22/09/2005)
No decision made yet
Paste Old Barton Road, Trafford, Greater Manchester, M30 in to http://local.google.co.uk/ and click on satellite. This will show you the exact location of the propsed development, which is currently a massive piece of empty land next to the Manchester Ship Canal and Trafford Centre! Note the planned access road from Redclyffe road and the Trafford centre! Right opposite the Venus office block! Peel must have big plans for the empty land!

Water taxi to Manchester and back please!

The beach has finally been unveiled, or not as the Planning app reveals!

Looks like Urban Splash have decided to try Haus in Manchester aswell as Altrincham! Very similar!

Ps! Note the development comes under MCC boundries and not Salfords!

Greengate

The Urban Splash planning application makes reference to Fielden Clegg (www.fieldenclegg.com) who have some slightly updated images of the Greengate scheme on their website:

Thanks JRB good to here some news on this one at last. But why would Salford do the planning approval if it falls within Manchetser. Are we talking geographic boundries as opposed to political.

Yes this is surely in Salford.

Also why run a RIBA design competition only to throw out the winning design? The architects should be listed on the planning application. It should still be Weston Williamson and should still be largely the same design.

Deej, don't you ever leave. You may rarely get compliments for your pics, but I'd wager that it's beause most people assume you're of the intelligence and maturity not to require pandering after every update. This is me after a fair few pints of stella after an evening out with Pa so I'm of course talking bollocks, but go with me. Anyway, you're ace and your pictures are magic. So don't stop, rocket baby.

Don't plan on going anywhere Degen, or getting mixed up in any petty arguments. Spent 13 years as a dairy farmer and have had more than enough real bullshit to last me a lifetime without indulging in the virtual stuff. The puns however could be improved,cr-anally retentive, that is so bad!

In todays MEN Homes edition!

Abito, Clippers Quay! (looks better on the planning application below)





click link below and click search for full planning details and rendering!

http://www.salford.gov.uk/living/pla...ning&ref=50913

Ps! For those who use Photoshop to adjust and resize. Use 7.00 cm width on Image size/documemt size and it will come out just right! (the above is 8.00 cm)
