Excavations of the foundations of the previous office proposal for the site continue.

It is now a 28 storey residential apartment tower.

Apparently a very famous football Manager coming to Manchester has bought the Penthouse Apartment, if true?

City Suites.

Not the best CGI TBH.

Click on the link for 9 more pictures. Post 988 and 989.

Went on a site visit yesterday.

The crane is going to be jacked up again at some point.

Building is 24 stories, including basement and plant.

300,000 sq ft.

Ground floor is double height.

The atrium will be open to the general public walk through.

1500 glass panels will be used to clad the buildings.

Think construction is expected to be completed by next May.

The glass will have faint circles etched on it. The glass won't be clear. Think there will be 2 different very faint shades.

The rusty pieces of steel are just for support.(below) Currently supporting the steel overhang

D&D restaurants have taken the 19th floor. Indoor Trees will be incorporated into the restaurant.

Wish I'd wrote it all down.

The other's who went will remember more than I have.

If things continue and pan out, we will see 3 towers in this shot/picture in the future.

The 2 Owen Street towers, and Deansgate South.

The picture was taken on the other side of the bridge, on top of the steps that lead up to the Deansgate Metrolink stop.

You can see the Atlas Bar in both pictures.

I'm a bit surprised it's City Suites.

Only because another 2 or 3 towers are proposed to go up directly behind City Suites. Which in itself won't be finished until next Summer. That will mean if he see's out his 3 year contract at City he will have to live with the construction of those towers for the following 2 years, and the views, which aren't great on that side of City Suites, will eventually be blocked. He then has to sell the Penthouse Apartment if he'ss buying it.

TBF to City Suites, the finishes in the apartments look top notch. Very plush. I'm sure Pep will have his own idea's of how he want's his Aaprtment to look.

Imagine Pep walking through the Arndale Centre. Sorry Pep, Manchester isn't Barcelona.

Mike(Ingall), can you plonk 2 or all 3 of your towers into the picture please.

Looking up Quay Street. Find Granada Studio on the render and picture. The building has a large banner on the side of it in my picture. In the render it has what looks like a glass walkway next to it.

That will give you a good idea of where the proposed towers will be located, and will sit in relation to Beetham tower.

Factory Arts and Culture Centre.

£110mill.

Currently being designed by OMA Architects.

http://www.dezeen.com/2015/11/25/oma...e-the-factory/

Through the magic of my iPAD, and my long fingers, I've managed to enlarge and screen grab the only renders so far.

TBH I still don't get the building, and the connection between the different parts of the building.

Deep down I'm hoping the design/proposal will be something different when it's finally made public.

I appreciate it's Renderland, but note how small the People and Car's are in comparison to the white blob, which is bathing them in light at ground level.

I take it that's an Airship, or is it a massive gold cucumber?

Angel Gardens | N.O.M.A.
Apartments | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1779918

  • Address: Swan St, N.O.M.A., City Zone Manchester M2

  • Architect: Haus Collective

  • Floors: 33

  • Height: 106m

  • Number of apartments: 458

  • Developer: Caddick, Genr8 and Moda Living

Current status: Groundworks

Nearest transport: Victoria







Groundworks have begun, car park closed, diggers on site, as this photo from IamTheStig shows.

The development company have submitted a planning application to Manchester City Council for permission to erect construction hoardings around the site for the duration of works - I guess once this is approved, which shouldn't take long, then full construction can begin.
