Manchester's Piccadilly Tower was put in for planning two years prior to Riverside South. I think it's safe to say it's been around longer.

Riverside South was proposed in early 2004 and the design - by Richard Rogers, one of the most well-known and well-publicised architects - was around for 4 years before that.

Me likes it alot. Beautifully proportioned massing on the macro level and clear and detailed details in the facade and human spaces on the micro level! Congrats Manchester for scoring such a beauty!

I like the look of this one, it might not have many whacky design features but it does have nice clean lines and the podium looks good.

It will be a very positive addition to this part of the city.

Oi. Choggers. Lets not get personal. Im not sure if Rob has ever posted in the Brum sub-forum so maybe his American!

But to an extent, V Building is'nt a box. It's A V!

Plus the design is rather amazing. register and check out the video's. You can see how it's positioned on the skyline also.

i think this tower looks great but it will make manchester have a bit of a "broken tooth" effect like the city of london...some tall buildings with gaps between...i don't think that looks to good in terms of the layout, they look better when clustered together...

It doesn't look so good on a postcard but from ground level I like the effect of having talls dotted around the city mixed with low and mid-rise buildings. If you have all of the talls in one area it blocks out the sunlight and Manchester doesn't get much of that in the first place!

Piccadilly Tower's second planning application was put in during 2004 and approved in 2005. The original plan from 2002 had some minor amendments. Riverside South was the copy.

The arches will be demolished likely once the warehouse and the canal have been secured so that they don't fall into the streets below. If you don't know the site there is a canal to the right of that big warehouse that is above the lower street level where the arches are. Its quite abig job in its self.
