There are plenty of renovations of old buildings, turning them into apartments etc but I dont think many new buildings are being built in 18th/19th century styles.

Except for some suburban housing developments of course.

The whole square and area is just looking brilliant, even though it's not finished yet.

Such a European feel about the place. Amazing streetscape developing. Could do with some trees leading from GMEX to St Peter's Square.

That render makes it look like it will be reflective material, is this the case or will it be quite a brutish building?

Metallic/aluminium panels by the looks of it

So I'd imagine they'll shine







Cladding precedents they've used are buildings which certainly do shine

I like it! Its not the most striking of buildings, but so much modern architecture is just novelty value!

Manchester storm | September 13, 2016

The other night Manchester was struck by one of the worst storms the UK has ever seen - 40mm of rain (which is 3 quarters of September's average amount for Manchester) fell in the space of one hour, causing widespread flooding as well as terrifying lightning displays across the city.

It followed the city's hottest September day - and the UK's hottest September day for 50 years, temperatures reached 32C in some places.


Key facts & stats
  • The storm hit between 6.30pm and and 8pm BST

  • Manchester City's home game against Borussia Mochengladbach at the Etihad was also cancelled because of the water-logged pitch.

  • The city's Metrolink network was completely shut down after two substations were struck by lightning

  • Rail services across the region were disrupted at rush hour, causing enormous delays and a backlog of services which wasn't cleared until midnight

  • Harvey Nichols - an upmarket department store in the city - flooded, as did part of the city's main shopping street.

  • 20,000 properties were left without power, which was only restored yesterday.

  • The Manchester Fire & Rescue service received 106 calls throughout the one hour period that the storm passed over
