Is the new covered walkway now more of a kind of lobby to link the entrances between the buildings , I get the impression it is something that will be closed at night , stopping the short cut link between the buildings ?

Correct Oakman, just a link building for the Town Hall and Library, even though they will be linked underground.

The building will act as a reception lobby for the buildings, it will be closed between 10pm and 6am, with gates on the Mount Street side. More information on the Town Hall Refurbishment thread.

Two St Peter's Square


Quote:
Betfred’s Manchester bet

03 August 2012

Betfred's millionaire owners are preparing to submit plans for a 12-storey office property on Manchester's St Peter's Square.

Property Week understands that brothers Fred and Peter Done’s Peninsula & Century has drawn up a scheme on its 100,000 sq ft Mosley Street holdings that could be submitted to Manchester City Council by the end of the year.

The proposals, which have been designed by Ian Simpson Architects, cover around 180,000 sq ft of office space, and sit opposite both the Manchester Town Hall extension and Argent and Greater Manchester Property Venture Fund's One St Peter's Square.

The working title for the scheme is believed to be Two St Peter's Square, and would sit on the site of Century House, Bennett House, Clarendon House and Sussex House.

I really do not want to see Century House go. If it is no longer fit for purpose as Grade A office space, please retain the facade!

This would be a total disaster. If it gets planning I will despair.

Simpson seems hell-bent on trashing St Peters Square. I don't get it.

Any idea what Fred's multiple storey office will look like. Renders? Images? computer generated promotion films?

Fortunately (and I'm saying that because I'm not a massive fan of that design), that isn't designed by Ian Simpson. It was subject to a competition held a couple of years back, this particular design was by 5plus Architects - http://www.5plusarchitects.com/work/...-mosley-street

Im hoping ISA can incorporate the facade of Century House (like the Free Trade Hall) into the final proposal.

I hope that this is the right thread for this update from the Peterloo Memorial Campaign.

Quote:
Sunday 19th August, 12 noon, in front of G Mex / Manchester Central Exhibition complex. The liberty cap sculpture will once again be raised, this time to stay as long as possible. This is the crucial event at which we need large numbers of people. We plan to surround the monument with flowers and personal messages, so please bring as many of these as possible. Creating a dignified air of solemn remembrance will help ensure it is treated with respect, and left in place the maximum amount of time.

This is now the decisive moment of the campaign, so numbers are crucial. The memorial is definitely going ahead, and though we've been verbally reassured by Richard Leese that the inappropriate 'Peter-loo' Library Walk concept has been abandoned, we've also been informed the design will no longer be an artists competition, and will now be decided by just 3 people- less than the number who died!

We need to press hard for an open democratic process, and for 3 designs by professional artists to be put on display, and subjected to a recorded, indicative and published vote.

This may be our final opportunity to influence the decision, as the commissioning process is due to begin in the autumn of this year.

You can find regular updates at our facebook page-

https://www.facebook.com/groups/335950663264/
So something is happening with the council's commission of a memorial, but the Campaign don't seem to have much faith in them to come-up with anything decent and are pushing their liberty hat sculpture idea.

It's odd that the City Council still find it so hard to deal with Peterloo, 193 years on. Radical Manchester..., yeah right!
