Less than a mile south of Manchester City Centre, opposite the university, sits the empty shell of the former Welsh Baptist Chapel. Czero is converting the Grade II* listed building into 87 studio apartments for a specialist fund.

Don't worry Mr Beetham, you won't be alone for much longer.

And you will always have a place in our hearts as Manchester's once tallest tower.

Am I right in saying that the 200.5 metre tower (as it stands now) would be the 42nd tallest building in Europe?

Depends if you count Russia and Turkey or not - if you do, it'll be the 41st tallest building. If not, it'll be 27th.

It'll be the UK's 5th tallest building
