The start for this 60? storey building is suposed to be 2006 but does anyone know when in 2006 that is actually going to be?

Welcome stubby. But there is a thread for this bad boy already. Youll have to sift through.

Inacity tower Piccadilly

Thanks to both of you for pointing out the thread but having ploughed through twenty odd pages of text, much of which appears to have little or nothing to do with this project, without success I guess I shall have to wait for the answer for a while yet.

I suspect that some of the very ambitious plans will not actually come to fruition, particularly if there was to be an economic downturn. I hope I am wrong as the regeneration of this area, which has partially begun with the smaller developments of the last few years, and the improvements to the towpath and canal area generally would be very welcome.

We all think it's gonna start sometime after Beetham's finished mate (moving the builders across) - so late summer?

This seems a bit redundant, can't we just have the title of the existing thread updated?

Edit: Well if that's locked, how about a prettier, more informative OP?

Wow those are great renders! :-)

Having just visited a friend of mine who bought a place high up in the Beetham Tower off-plans I am genuinely interested in putting my name down for a place in InaCityEastGatePiccadillyStoreStreet Tower!

Doubt I'll ever have the cash to buy the blinkin' thing but just love the idea of it!

:-)

I thought they had one. Did they drop out? Maybe that was the delay.
