This thread should be moved to City/Metro Compilations (if the mods don't just close it because of the title)

you need to quit the stereotyping and concentrate on the projects, this is why it's called a skyscrapercity forum.

Edit: Good to see the individual was banned as he/she was getting irritating and a class of projects Manchester.

There are some dead sexy buildings going up/on the boards in Manchester, but this one still tickles me no end. I love it so much.

Next time I'm back in Manchester, I probably won't even recognize the place with all of the construction going on. That wouldn't be too much of a stretch as last time I was utterly pissed the entire time, but that would be for a different thread.

Can't wait to get back and see all that's new.

civil justice centre, rocks!!!!!

eastgate, looks very similar to a new one in Canary Wharf, still looks really nice

Are all of this new buildings in the same "area" or "district", I mean, will they form a skyline???

seems that they are already catching up in height with London.

miguelon:You mean riverside south?

Not really as the highest planned building in manchester is 188 metres and the tallest in London and the UK is 235 metres.Besides London has a 310 metre building under construction aswell as the 288 metre bishopsgate tower.etc

I don't mean to boast,just being informative.
I would love to see a supertall in mancs
