From todays planning apps!(see below, second to bottom)

Should interest Sleepy, Farsight and all!

Conformation of 1000 seater lecture theatre and just for Farsight, a 15 storey tower to replace the maths tower!

Looks like we've got a very interesting development on our hands!

I'll get down to the planning office as soon as possible!

Also some interesting applications for Anocoats!

What you'll find is an image that almost certainly looks like this.



i.e. a 1000 seat lecture theatre, 3 x 7 storey blocks and a 15 storey student resi block.

Any more images you can take including details of cladding and general dimensions will be very interesting though, thanks jrb.

The view of Eastgate-Albany cluster will be great from the top of that residential block!

Probably! But the renderings, images in the planning application will have a lot more detail! The buildings might even be slightly different?

Whats your take on the 1000 seat lecture theatre then? Hopefully it should bring the University and Manchester some very big global conventions!

Now if they could just stick the 15-storey building on top of one of them 7-storey blocks I'd be pleased. Oh and give it some curves.

Seriously though, the description doesn't quite match the image above.

Some of you won't be impressed, some of you will?

Got to go to Tescos first!

I'll upload the renderings/images later on!
