So are we to be allowed to get excited over Chancery?? We're not just getting a car park? With the slogan of 'An opportunity not to be missed' it certainly sounds it.. Its a great video but I disagree with one point..

'Who wouldn't want to work here?'
I wouldn't!!!............Never tear meself away from the windows, lol.. The view looks like one of the best of the city, (the 2nd City..as it said (can't argue with it ))

So I hope they start this very soon, before end of the year infact..
To think, the amount of now 'midrises' going up, (which at one time we'd of classed as highrise, tee hee) will give such a density to the city in the places that need it, horrah

Don't know if this image has been posted yet?

I'm 100% sure there will be changes to Eastgate! Cabe and the City Council had reservations about certain areas of the design, notably the base!

Taken from Property Week!

Nice cladding

Relevant part of an article posted by Sleepyone:
Quote:
Meanwhile, Inacity is getting on with its plans to build Manchester’s tallest tower: a 60-storey development with a luxury hotel, 430 flats and another 280 flats in buildings alongside. The £200m tower was designed by Woods Bagot and includes a £7m public area that will be surrounded with bars and restaurants. Work has started on site and construction of the 1.2m sq ft (111,480 sq m) scheme is expected to start in January.
It says work has started on site, can anyone confirm this? If true then the 'Jan 2006' start should be proper foundation work.

I didn't notice anything today, but I will have a proper look when I'm back at Gateway on Monday armed with a camera.

It might be nothing but, you know the steep hill at the side of the site between Store St and Ducie St, today there were workmen re-doing the road markings,, is this part of the preparation around the site ?

Could be. They might be closing off half of that little steep road.

Excellent news if this has started - Manchester steadily over taking most European cities in the skyscraper stakes.

Im not sure it has started yet. That may be a few months off yet - don't want to jump the gun, or count those chickens (etc).

We are yet to hear news of a hotel operator being signed up which is surely a pre-requesite for this tower starting on site. Shouldn't be long though.

^ Not sure, but they do 5 stars - I've just bagged the deal of the decade on such a hotel in Berlin.
Anyone here been?
Looking forward to the trip I must say.

Berlin ist sehr schoen! You will like it a lot!

A must is a trip to the top of the Fernseherturm. (TV tower to you and me). It's been a few years since I went but it was only about 4 euros.

Also, if the weather's good, a picnic in the Tiergarten then a stroll down Unter den Linden (Berlin equivalent of the Champs Elysees) to the Brandenburg Gate, and of course you have to see the wall.

Unfortunately I didn't have much time for the more cultural things (there are hundreds of museums and art galleries etc) because I was having a jolly old piss-up for a reunion with a few friends. Must say the nightlife/cafe culture was buzzing. I was upposed to go for 3 days but ended up staying for 6!

I can't remember the name of the area my friend's apartment was in, but it near to Boxhagener Strasse. That whole area's really funky and like a very central suburb. It's somewhere in between Warschauer Strasse and Frankfurter Tor stations (think one is S-Bahn and one is U-Bahn) I'd recommend a chilled out night in bars around there to anyone.
