Looks like outline consent for MediaCityUK Phase Two next Thursday (01/09)




Full consent near for £1bn MediaCityUK second phase
PNW: https://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/new....fui7pEl2.dpuf



Quote:
Detailed proposals for the £1bn expansion of MediaCityUK are due to be approved by Salford City Council’s planning committee next week.

Peel Media submitted the application for the next 10 buildings at Salford Quays in June. The developer was granted outline consent for the second phase of MediaCityUK in October 2006, and had 10 years to bring forward detailed applications for each building.

Overall, the expansion is expected to deliver 540,000 sq ft of offices, 1,800 apartments, retail and leisure, public spaces and a pedestrian street.

The buildings proposed at MediaCityUK are:

97,000 sq ft office by Chapman Taylor
182 apartments and car park by Hodder & Partners
1,052-space multi-storey car park by Chapman Taylor
286 flats by Jeffrey Bell
Market and event space by Jeffrey Bell
345 flats by Chapman Taylor
300,000 sq ft office by Sheppard Robson
450 apartments by 5plus
476 apartments in two blocks by AHR Architects
In March, Peel accelerated its application for the residential scheme by AHR, which was approved and the apartments in the first building launched to the market for sale. A start on site is expected by the end of the year.

Chapman Taylor is masterplanner guardian, while Gillespies is the landscape architect. NJL Consulting is advising on planning.

At the same meeting on Thursday 1 September, Peel has also put forward plans for up to 132 houses across two plots in Boothstown. The proposed scheme at Vicars Hall Lane is on agricultural land, and forms the second phase of a wider residential development. The first phase of 60 homes was approved in 2014 and is currently on site.

Randall Thorp is advising Peel.

There's going to be a market and events hall in the middle, to cater to the 3,000+ people who will live in the immediate area:

MediaCity phase 2 is amazing! I'm loving its version of the Scalpel in London.

Really like the last render in MediaCity.

Thanks VDB by the way for answering my other question from a couple of pages back... (Great Jackson Masterplan).

Trinity Islands - the power of democracy in the Mancunian planning system!

So to those who remember my post about Trinity Islands and how us Mancs weren't happy about the original proposal? If not, read all about it here.

These were our opinions after the consultation on Thursday August 11th:










The proposal in question:








Afterwards, Allied London chief exec Mike Ingall stated there would be a redesign, and today our prayers were answered.

This newest version is far more iconic and ambitious

Those skybridges and it looks like they have gardens/trees inside them too. Wonderful.

@TrinityIslands some work in progress starting to get some X factor back @AlliedLondon

I really don't like those bridges...

I always come here and say this but Manchester is booming. I love how MCR has it's own personality and identity.

I was thinking the other day it'd be cool if Manchester had it's own iconic busses to go hand-in-hand with the trams. Like modern yellow busses. That's just my 2-penny's-worth anyways.

@VDB - Excellent updates mate.

I think thanks to the devolution powers the Mayor will have more control over bus transport as a whole, at the moment its a hodge podge of different franchises

Let's hope they're a fan of yellow

Yo! Home | New Islington
Folding apartments concept | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post133194676

  • Address: 88 Old Mill Street, New Islington, City Zone Manchester M4

  • Architect: Glenn Howells

  • Floors: 6

  • Number of apartments: 24

  • Developer: Yo! Ltd

Current status: Rejected

Nearest transport: New Islington







Yo! Home has been rejected by Manchester City Council, who felt that the apartments were too small to be fit for human habitat.

Cllr Hugh Barratt is quoted as saying: "This is the 21st century, let’s have proper accommodation where people can enjoy a proper life."

To be honest, it doesn't look like something special, maybe they'll come up with a better project now.

The old GM buses used to have orange as their brand colour I seem to remember. But maybe yellow to match the trams would be better for the future.

You mean like this... I don't like the idea of Orange at all, but Yellow is a great colour and works well on the trams and could also on the buses.

As for buses, I highly endorse the new ones used in London for three main reasons.

1) They already exist.
2) They look great.
3) (and most important) they have a front, middle and back door. I just don't get why so many buses in the UK don't have a back door! Without this, it is so impractical, let alone the ones just with a front door so all people leave the same way as people arrive.

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








St Peter's Square tram stop reopened today with four platforms. It will form the main interchange station for trams heading to Piccadilly & East Manchester and Victoria & North Manchester.

It's also set amongst some of Manchester's finest architecture, and is sure to be a very busy station once the Second City Crossing reopens and full tram services are resumed.

This photo from Jaga1920:







Some of my photos from today:












Happy to report that trams are running past the Moseley St Art Gallery once again. For years this building, with the trams rumbling by in front, has been an 'icon' for Manchester.
