Circle Square | Little Ireland
Mixed use masterplan | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post123105881

  • Address: All plots, Circle Square, Little Ireland, City Zone Manchester M2

  • Architect: Fieldon Clegg Bradley

  • Floors: 12-36

  • Number of apartments: 677

  • Office space: 305,630sqft

  • Developer: Bruntwood

Current status: Phase 1 under construction, everything else Approved

Nearest transport: Oxford Road









Planning app has gone in for the Circle Square marketing suite - which in itself isn't exciting however it includes an app for a new market offering independent retailers, street food, beverage and retail units underneath the Mancunian Way overpass.


Quote:
112619/FO/2016 | Erection of a temporary three-storey marketing suite building with ground floor cafe/gallery (Sui Generis) and flexible marketing and commercial floorspace at first and second floor (Sui Generis) related access, landscaping and associated works. | New Broadcasting House Oxford Road Manchester M60 7HB
http://pa.manchester.gov.uk/online-a...=O9F4TBBC6K000



The underpass as it currently sits. Oxford Road is a very busy thoroughfare leading to two of Manchester's universities, plenty of footfall in this area.





Quote:
7.0 Future Phases

The marketing suite is potentially the first phase of several that we are in the process of exploring for the adjacent land that runs underneath the Mancunian Way. The land is currently used as a car park that services both Oxford House and the soon to be demolished Armstrong House; with the delivery of both the permanent multi storey car park and temporary surface car park on the main site there will no longer be the requirement for this parking to be retained.

The proposals will create a vibrant street of prefabricated pods inhabiting the space under the Mancunian Way. The pods will adopt the same form and materiality as those used in the marketing suite. Creative lighting will be used to animate and refresh this currently underused and unwelcoming space. It is considered that these proposals will create a truly unique area within the city centre to complement and solidify the vision of Circle Square for the area.

These pods will provide space for independent retailers to provide a mixed offering that includes street food, beverage and retail that will aim to continue and utilise the ideas established within the design of the marketing suite. Links are also being explored with MMU School of Art about providing space where students can sell and exhibit their artwork.

The marketing suite has been designed specifically to integrate with and provide a gateway to this future phase when it comes forward. The future phase will be submitted as a seperate planning application when the concept and design is fully developed.



The plan (Mancunian Way podiums are the black & yellow blocks, so the market stalls are entwined within and around them).

Marketing suite is to the left.

Metrolink: Second City Crossing | St Peter's Square to Victoria
Tram line | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...6944&page=2041

  • Address: John Dalton St, Cross St and Exchange Square, City Zone Manchester M2

  • Contractor: MPact-Thales

  • Number of expanded stations: 3

  • Number of new stations: 1

  • Interchanges with National Rail: 1, at Victoria

  • Interchanges with existing Network: 2, at Victoria and St Peter's Square

  • Operator: Metrolink, Transport for Greater Manchester

Current status: Under Construction

Nearest transport: N/A







Work is continuing on the Metrolink's Second City Crossing, enabling more trams to run across the city centre and increasing frequencies on lines across the metropolitan area.

As part of the works, St Peter's Square tram stop is expanding - from 2 platforms to 4 platforms. It will form one of the network's main interchanges betweeen trams going to Victoria (via Exchange Square) and Piccadilly.

However this means the network has to be severed in half while the work at St Peter's Square takes shape.

Network map showing no trams running all summer between St Peter's Square and Market St/Piccadilly Gardens







However, the "E" line is also having track renewals, meaning the entire branch is closed off over Summer.








Photos by Freel07 showing tram works along Cross St in the City Zone:






Down John Dalton St:











The new interchange station at St Peter's Square will have four platforms and mature trees growing out of the platforms:







Photos by Freel showing the trees being craned into place:













Attracted quite a bit of public interest as you would expect!








The new shelters at St Peter's Square:






Metrolink is already the UK's largest light rail system, and as well as the Second City Crossing there will also be a further expansion to Trafford Park in the next few years, as well as planned expansions to other Greater Manchester suburbs - including Rose Hill, Glossop, Stockport and Wigan.

360 aerial drone footage of Manchester city centre.

Even though I know they are there, I'm quite shocked at the amount of ghost car parks at Piccadilly Basin, and next to it in the NQ. Thankfully property developers are now building on those ghost car parks.

That aside.

You can see the development potential for Mayfield and the land to the left of Piccadilly Train Station, which will include the proposed Civil Service relocation, the redevelopment of Piccadilly Train Station, the HS3 and HS2 Train Station, London Road Fire Station, etc. Hopefully?



Click on the link, circle around, zoom in and out, etc.
