Owen St was approved by Manchester City Council today.

Quote:
Renaker skyscraper cluster approved

30 Jun 2016, 15:37

Manchester City Council has granted planning permission to the UK’s tallest building outside of London, a 66-storey tower that will be built as part of Renaker’s development at Owen Street, Castlefield.

The skyscraper is the highest of four towers; the other three will reach 52, 46 and 39 storeys respectively.

The project will provide 1,508 apartments and penthouses, alongside amenities including lounges, roof garden, swimming pool, indoor tennis court, fully equipped gymnasium, treatment rooms, business facilities, 24/7 concierge and extensive basement parking.

The architect is SimpsonHaugh & Partners.

The development will also feature a variety of food and drink outlets, set around a public square fronting the River Medlock.

Renaker has been on site at Owen Street for a number of weeks completing site clearance work, and Renaker plans to start construction over the course of the summer.

Owen Street is the latest venture by Renaker Build, which is currently building 1,600 apartments across four sites at Greengate, Cambridge Street, Regent Road and Wilburn Basin. In addition, the firm recently secured planning consent for a 44-storey, 349 apartment scheme at Exchange Court, also in Greengate.

Andy Finch, head of sales at Renaker Build, said: “We are thrilled to have received permission for our latest development which will be the first within the Great Jackson Street framework, creating a new community at the southern gateway to the core of Manchester city centre.

“We are fully committed to the redevelopment of the wider Great Jackson Street area and further regeneration and development will follow alongside our Owen Street scheme. This development has been designed with a wide range of apartment types, the vast majority of which are significantly more generous than purchasers will find elsewhere in the city.

“With the larger unit sizes, a high-end specification and residents’ amenities that are genuinely unmatched anywhere else in Manchester, this will undoubtedly become the new destination of choice for city centre residents.”



Renaker probably will start construction on Monday, they're famous for getting on-site within hours of approval being granted:






Owen St Tower 1 will be the tallest building in Manchester; in the North of England; and in the UK outside London.

Actually... unless I'm mistaken, could this be the tallest in the European Union outside of London by measure of floor count?

As far as floor count goes, the tallest I think in Germany isthe Messe Turm at 63 floors, the tallest in Spain is Torre Espacio at 56 floors, Frances tallest is Tour Montparnasse at 59 floors and the tallest by floor count in the Netherlands is the New Orleans building at 46 floors.My data could be out of date of cause, and I haven't thought of all countries in the EU.
