Hopefully it'll get re-opened as town's 3rd major station. Little touches like that would help our City's image worldwide, and speed up the rate of regeneration round that area.

oh if I was king of the world...

They better not touch the Star and Garter I will be hopping mad if they do.....

Saying that getting rid of the (arguably) child prostitutes, perverted old men and crack peddling car dwellers will be very welcome, otherwise dunno who'd want to have a conference in their posh new hotel

Haha who me? No I just frequent Smile at the Star & Garter and it breaks my heart to see the girls outside peddling their wears outside in all weathers. It really is heartbreaking!

Two Hotels out of Nowhere (+2/3 more)

Good to hear about this development. Whilst it will be initially isolated, it will eventually be joined with the MacDonald/Gateway House proposal that I believe is forthcoming, in 2/3s of Gateway (leaving the other 1/3 for office space).

There is also Mill Point and a section of land immediately behind that (Piccadilly Station side) that is being prepared for a key worker apartment scheme. There's also the office scheme, the old sorting office, that Bruntwood are doing adding vitality, to an other-wise dead area.

So that's those two hotels, plus the Eastgate Hotel, the Picc Place/Holiday Inn and dare I speculate, the Old Fire Station, which is owned by a hotelier LOL! This of course to add to Malmaison and the' world-class' Monroes!

A bit of investigating tonight.

Turned up something.

075988/FO/2005/C2

Telecommunications House (Victory House)
London Road
City

Conversion of existing building to offices (use class B1) and 231 bedroom hotel (use class C2) and ancillary functions with car parking on site at rear

Approved

*A 231-bed four-star hotel in the former BT tower block on London Road. Scottish firm Macdonald Hotels wants planning permission to transform the building into a hotel with mixed office use. Macdonald operates 60 hotels and resorts in Britain and will be venturing into Manchester city centre for the first time, with the majority of its business focused on the four-star market.

Click on Rio link, then retail & leisure, then lazy-l hotel.

I'm 99.99% sure those renders relate to the eurocentral hotel?

I think a phone call may be necessary on Tuesday to clear things up.

Architects.

Manchester Mayfield Station... it was just a proposal but I doubt it will be used, maybe far in the future.

Is take just around the corner from where the trams will exit Piccadilly to head towards Ashton I think.

The sign post points to a road called Travis Road (towards Ancoats) which is where the trams will emerge from underneath Piccadilly, they will then follow Travis Street, and go down Adiar Street I think...

I would say the only (and very perilious) way in was to go to the end of P13/14 , cross the track , stick to the wall and head out until you get to where the tracks used to split and come back on yourself.

I did once hear a proposal for Mayfield Street but in a classic Longford - fluffy kittens/chocolate biscuits/ Charlotte-Church-in-a-bikini type moment i cant remember what it was. What i do remember was that whatever it was, it wasnt going to be cost effective and it was abandoned. I'll try and remember what it was (it wasnt a go-karting and mud wrestling megaplex that i do know!)

I suspect you mean the Burj Al-Arab? Burj Dubai is almost a kilometer tall. Couldn't be arsed with that anywhere in the centre of Manc. Wouldn't mind it in the middle of Sport City mind. Burj Al-Arab, I'd cack myself to death if we ever got something as beautiful as that.
