Aerial Video TV. https://twitter.com/aerialvideotv

Storage area to become 33 storey tower???



Imagine that aerial shot in 5 years time, with the majority of Middlewood Locks completed, and up to, or more than 10 towers spread across the city centre.



You can clearly see how far the city centre is beginning to stretch out, with Middlewood Locks in the fore ground, Trinity Island, and St John's behind, Chapel Street & New Bailey to the left, Wilburn Basin & Water Street to the right, First Street far right(2 cranes), Greengate upper left, and the sprawling city centre going back. There's also still plenty of land around Middlewood Locks to buy and to redevelop.

There is a comment wanting to know more about the construction processes. What you see is indeed the core, twin lift shaft and stairwell which will also anchor the frame into as this progresses.

What you are seeing at the moment is the slipform shutters (very bottom) and working decks (two levels) being erected. This is a creeping shutter and over the coming weeks you will see this being jacked up into the air, forming the concrete core below. The working decks above allow the joiners and steel fixers to fit the openings and reinforcement beforehand and stay ahead of the pour. Youtube has a lot of timelapse videos of the process if you want to see more.

If you want to know anything else about the build feel free to ask us any questions.

Regards

M-one Central.

1 St Peter's Square | Peterloo
Offices | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post134782185

  • Address: 1 St Peter's Square, Peterloo, City Zone Manchester M2

  • Architect: Glenn Howells

  • Floors: 14

  • Office Space: 268,000sqft

  • Height: 60m

  • Completed: 2014

  • Cost: £60m

  • Contractor: Carillion

Current status: Complete

Nearest transport: St Peter's Square








Number 1 St Peter's Square was completed in 2014 at a cost of £60m.

Last year it was sold for £130m, and now it's just been sold again - for £164m

If you needed more proof about how strong Manchester's property market is, there it is.

That's £569 per square foot, which is comparable to prices in most major cities around the world.

One St Peter's Square sold for £164m

One annoying thing about Manchester, looking up recent videos of it on YouTube. Search Manchester recent videos and you get the football team... Then you get the great idea of adding city add then end of it. Yeah not such a good idea either.

Trinity Islands | St John's

The saga continues!

Safe to say it looks like Allied London will be changing their plans for Trinity Islands to something more ambitious. Manchester Shield are an organisation set up in the previous few years to ensure that Manchester receives high quality and a high standard of development, and to ensure that developers are not profiting at its expense.

Thanks jrb.

Out of 22 townhouses in total, it looks like all but three have now sold (they went on sale about 3 weeks ago).

Found on Twitter, by AJD1984.
