Thanks for the pics H.

One application that I haven't come across yet. Time to get the spade out and do a bit of digging.

For some reason I really like those rustic old oliveresque buildings. Id love it if they could stay and be done up.

I like it. Has similar massing and elevations to some of the old mill buildings in the area.

I think Corb would be turning in his grave to know that architects are still churning out watered down, unrefined versions of his ideas 75 years after he first came up with them!

Gorgeous building. Thanks SleepyOne.



There's no cafe space next to the water mind, looks a bit of a dead zone. I'm guessing the ground floor is car park, pity. But the building is nice, neat, streamlined, very 21st century.

That's gross IMHO (Eastern European social housing lookilikey or what!) However, the development will be saved by the fab 22 storey building.

Paul Butler Associates.



Victoria Works, Pollard Street, Manchester
Client: City Lofts Ltd

Paul Butler Associates gained planning permission for the conversion of a complex of mill buildings with some high quality new build on the Ashton Canal near the proposed Metrolink Extension.

Unfortunately a serious fire meant the mills could not be saved and in their place - to a similar footprint and height - a new build mixed use development of 420 flats (including 60 key worker flats) and office and retail space was proposed and approved.

Paul Butler Associates were involved in detailed negotiations over car parking, open space, s106 contributions and many other complex matters. The end result is an exciting scheme which is due to get underway imminently.
