Unfortunately I think quite a few of these proposals will now end up being put on hold.

It's absolutely devastating Jonesy.

We can only sit tight and wait and see what happens, but I am utterly crushed and feeling very disappointed at my fellow countrymen & women right now.

I am with you VDB - though I am most sad for my many European friends here in Manchester and elsewhere.

Why, they are at least 10% cheaper for foreign investors now. Most likely base rate will go down to 0% which will increase local demand too... bright up people and look for new opportunities. EU wasn't building these towers, local companies had.

Uncertainly hits foreign investment (what funds these towers) fast and hard. Long term the UK will probably bremain a haven for foreign investment, as access to the common market isn't the only reason investors like the UK. However, short and medium term, we can probably expect investor confidence in the UK to slump while there is uncertainty about how good of a deal the UK will be able to negotiate with the EU, which in itself isn't a certainty, given the immense economic clout (approx. $20 trillion in 2015 figures) of the EU and their desire not to make an exit from the common market "easy and attractive".

Saying that, uncertainty and risk are never fixed variables in themselves, and can be pretty reactionary in the short term, so lets hope that once the dust has settled and the lack of confidence created by this insane volatility has waned, stabilisation, albeit with lower growth, may help stabilise confidence and keep Manchester's new skyline on track; i'll be keeping my croissants and bratwurst crossed, I wanna draw it!

EU Referendum

Impact on Manchester


Quite a few people on this thread and the London thread today, no doubt wondering what next for British cities post-Brexit.

  • I'll re-iterate that we haven't actually left the EU yet, and these negotiations may take up to two years to finalise.

  • Many of Manchester's property experts are assuming the status quo despite market frenzy.

  • They say that the market tumble isn't necessarily due to Brexit, but rather due to a break in the norm - and the uncertainty that comes with it.

  • A number of property developers delivering Manchester's largest schemes are sticking to it, saying the developments will carry on regardless (see below).

  • Moda Living (developers behind Angel Gardens,) have stated they are "100% committed to delivering & operating a high quality rental platform across the UK"

  • Micheal Ingall, (Chief Exec at Allied London, who is currently building No.1 Spinningfields and is also developing the St Johns district) has also stated it's "business as usual" for them.

My fingers also remain crossed. There are some really fantastic developments in proposal or planning stages at the moment that I would hate to see lost because of the xenophobes.

On other hand uncertainty always pushes yields up which is bait for investors, epically if we are talking about market like UK.

52% of the UK population are xenophobes?

Blimey, your just as out of touch as Jeremy Corbyn and the rest of the Labour party.

Well, that percentage says it all.

Incredibly sad, and I'm embarrassed even though I've only been living here for the last few weeks.

Embarrassing - I feel kicked in the stomach.

For anyone who disbelieves the 'Young-person-remain' theory, in my top set class of 32, 14-15 year olds, all 32 wanted to remain.

There's a reason the voting age is 18. That's generally the age when people are informed enough to make important decisions, obviously doesn't apply to all.

Oh absolutely, it would be anarchic to lower the age. However, this has been a referendum where protest voters have voted without the intention of Britain actually leaving.

But that's democracy, and the decision should be respected.

And as Ed said (was it Ed?), this is the beginning of the end for the United Kingdom. Not just Scotland, but in NI too.

However, I don't think Manchester should be affected too much. The majority of investment round here (Airport City etc.) is Chinese and shouldn't really be changed by the result. They've got their 20, 50, 100, and 200 year investment plans anyway.

I believe this highlights one of the very reasons we voted out in the first place, the ordinary person's views being dismissed because it doesn't fit with the left's agenda. We really need less of this kind of debate censorship and labelling in the UK in my honest opinion.

As for Manchester, I think it may suffer like most places early on due to the initial shock and uncertainty but after that I think it will roll on as it has been. *touches wood*

I agree with the stuff re investment in Manchester. My hope is leaving the EU should make us more able to freely trade with the rest of the world, China, India etc. and Manchester has seemingly been a very attractive bet for this sort of investment.

Let's hope that continues to be the case.
