Two new 40-storey towers for Manchester.


Quote:
Ingall picks winner for PRS towers

14 Jun 2016, 11:27

Architecture practice, Denton Corker Marshall, has won a design contest held by Allied London to design three high-rise private rented residential towers in the St John’s neighbourhood, Manchester, totalling more than 900 apartments.

The towers will be DCM’s first major commission for Allied in Manchester since the distinctive Civil Justice Centre opened in 2007 at Spinningfields. DCM has also designed for Allied in London, at 20 Cannon Street and 28 Savile Row.

Michael Ingall, Allied London’s chief executive, commented: “Notwithstanding our historic and successful partnership with Denton Corker Marshall, they proposed the best architectural solution to a difficult brief. Designing residential towers in Beta cities like Manchester is a challenge within the context of our values, ‎so we required very experienced and thoughtful architects who understood our core objectives. We are bringing a new product to market and we can’t fall short of our design standards. DCM gave us a complete architectural solution that will be exciting and effective.”

James Sidlow, recently recruited to the Allied team from Deloitte, will head up the delivery of the new St John’s Living venture and brand.

Ingall added: “We are very serious about PRS. It is very well suited to the St John’s vision and we have an opportunity here to provide a great new product, ‎to a new market and create an asset class that delivers and sustains both service and value. We proved with the XYZ Building that to be successful you have to pay close attention to detail and we are delighted to be working with Denton Corker Marshall who share this passion.”

Sidlow added: “The heritage-rich St John’s site represents a new best-in-class city centre neighbourhood providing a place to live, work and play. Set at the heart of the neighbourhood, the two landmark PRS towers will take residential design into a new era. Working with Denton Corker Marshall, the towers will combine creative design, unrivalled city views, considered layouts, exciting communal accommodation all bound under a strong Allied London brand and management structure. For the growing young professional sector, the towers will offer an aspirational lifestyle within a unique setting, unsurpassed anywhere else in the city.”

The construction of the buildings is in line with the strategic regeneration framework designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners for St John’s and approved last year, which established the principle of a series of tall residential blocks towards the west of St John’s and along the River Irwell.

A planning application is due to be submitted later this year. Allied said St John’s Living will begin construction in March 2017.

St John’s is the new project developing the Old Granada Studios site into a new neighbourhood that will be a place for people to live, work, create and play.

Those new builds look potentially decent! I quite like the wooden shack like portions on the roofs. I am not keen on the 60's tower block re-clad though.... I always felt that would bring this scheme down architecturally if not done well. I wished they just knocked it down and started again, or be more bullish with the refurb and make it look completely different from how it appears now.

Bar the odd clanger, there's some good stuff being proposed ATM in Manchester.

Just in case you missed the CGI's up there.

I like the PDF Design and Access Statement Docs, as you can always enlarge them without losing sharpness and quality.

I appreciate it's just a knee-jerk reaction, but I'd love one of those roof houses.

Imagine chilling out on the roof terrace on a Summer's Evening, with the hustle and bustle of the Kampus and the Gay Village/Canal Street below you.

20 years on - the Manchester IRA Terror Attack



It's been 20 years since the Irish Republican Army planted a 3,300lb bomb - the largest to be detonated in Britain since World War 2 - right in the centre of Manchester's shopping district. After giving police just over an hour to evacuate the vicinity, the bomb exploded - totally obliterating buildings adjacent, and smashing windows over a mile away.

Luckily, nobody was killed however hundreds were injured and local area hospitals were crowded for days following the event.

Due to the bomb exploding in the shopping area, mannequins fallen from shop windows were later mistaken for bodies in the rescue effort.

The bomb caused £700m of damage to the city centre, which was gradually rebuilt between 1997 and 2004. The bomb is regularly given as an explanation as to why Manchester began to redevelop at such a rapid pace at the beginning of the 21st century.

Much of the money (about 95%) for Manchester's regeneration came from the EU - very little came from Westminster, as usual for places outside of London.






The van the bomb was planted inside. The IRA rang a local TV station to warn of the bomb. This being normal IRA protocol, the TV station quickly rang the police.







Short clip about the bomb:






The aftermath. Entire swathes of the city were rebuilt off EU money. The UK government pledged very little because they didn't care about the North (which is still very much the case) - and is why it's important that northerners vote to stay IN the EU.












Warnings of a second bomb on the other side of town forced a wedding to be evacuated:








A postbox which survived the bomb intact, and is still there in the same position to this day:

Completely true. Such a poignant reminder of the importance of the EU to the UK. IMHO Manchester wouldn't be where we are today without our membership of the EU.

Victoria Station development is a joke right? Must be the worst proposal in the UK?

May I refer you to Nova Victoria ?

Once a series of slender office towers and a new public square for Victoria station has been reduced to bulky groundscrapers.

There is no EU money, it's are money. And we get less of it back then they take.
