Very true, there is little ground experience/atmosphere around there. I don't really think that the apartment blocks already built or proposed can count as signature landmark buildings. The IWM could have achieved this status, only it's too short, and you can't see it from any direction as you drive through the Quays.......shame, because it's beautifully designed.

The best place for taller office buildings is around Exchange Quay, I think.

SleepyOne, in what way is the shorter proposal a more intelligent piece of urban design?





If you won't provide an explanation I shall conclude that it would be twice as intelligent at half the height.

That part of the Quays will look superb when all the current and future developments are complete!

I'll give Modus a ring tomorrow and use my persuasive charms to get some info!

A bit more info!

Modus are waiting on Trafford Councils planning review which will take place next year. Once the review is completed, Modus will hopefully press ahead with the scheme? The plans still involve a residential tower! The site has been let on a short term lease!

Know doubt this review by Trafford Council could affect the Victoria Gateway scheme aswell?

The Quays coming on very nicely, although the backs of the NV buildings are awful!
