A new apartment block has been started off Sillavan Way (off Chapel St). It going to be 11 stories of apartments and retail. They started the piling yesterday!

It's this Nikal delevolpment - By the way just opposite this, and just adjacent to Salford Central Station- along Gore St -the area has been enclosed with hoardings . LANCE is the only logo adorned on it, I'm sure some SSC contributor gave us some snippet of info on this scheme a while back - Potatoman rings a bell - but I coud be wrong.

Set up an image account on the web with photobucket - it's free. Upload your images onto it and then copy the address in the 3rd line under the image and paste it into your Skyscrapercity message.

Reminds me a little of an area in Berlin (or spots in other euro cities as it happens).
It's the bridge that does it. The only difference being the fact that this area is pretty lifeless at the mo.
Inject thee with people and infrastructure.

Top shots Caw - what's the 'chuchie' building on the first pic?

Cheer for the pics Caw.....
This area is definitely on the up, who remembers this area 5 years ago before city point and Model lodging house were built!?
Its fast becoming an extension of the city centre although still in Salford, is an important area of central manchester, and personally im glad to see the central boundaries extended into areas such as Salford. I hope the Greengate area really takes off and the new towers proposed in the area get built because this area will become a great place.

Spectrum/Abito Apartments.

These two developments need a thread.

Both are close to each other and the Greengate site.

Plenty of crane activity currently around that area of the city centre.

Click on links below for info.

Taken today!

First picture includes Tempus aswell!

We were posting this stuff in the central salford developments thread - these projects don't get regular enough updates to warrant their own thread do they?

They will from now on Caw!

That whole area will be amazing soon! Spectrum, Abito, Tempus, not to mention the Greenagte tower. If work really has started on the Greengate site like we believe? There could be up to 10 cranes around that area very soon!
