Looked like activity on this site this morning. Not totally sure though, as a lot of construction projects going on around here. If it's Pochin's construction that are doing this project, then they look like they are site already for this project. 3 projects under construction in this area at one time makes things pretty congested!

I'm liking the cladding on 1 Spinningfields, but it doesn't really seem too similar to the render

Seems to be an ongoing thing in Manchester we see renders and artists impressions and then when the thing finally gets built the cladding looks better than it did in the render!! 101 Embankment is another example

Little Londons



For Londoners fed up with outrageous house prices, an attractive alternative is to live and work in Manchester or Birmingham. They are Britain’s joint second-biggest urban areas, with around 2.5m people each, and they are on a roll.

Birmingham claims to be the only part of Britain with a trade surplus with China. In the past decade the number of professional jobs in Manchester city rose by 50%. Both have a buzzing nightlife and cultural scene, too.

Small wonder Londoners are flocking. But a familiar spectre is following them up the M40 motorway: housing troubles.

A few years ago supply and demand of homes more or less balanced out, but now there is a shortfall of about 10,000 homes in Manchester city and 20,000 in Birmingham city, according to data from JLL, a property firm.

Since 2005 the housing stock in the greater Manchester and Birmingham areas has grown by just 6%, half the rate seen in inner London.

By London standards, property in both areas is cheap, but that is changing. According to the Resolution Foundation, a think tank, in recent years the rate of home-ownership in Manchester has dropped further from its peak than any other region.

The decline in Birmingham appears similarly large. Last year house prices in Manchester rose by 10%. Top-end office rents in Birmingham grew by one-tenth last year; it now costs just 15% less per square foot than it does in downtown Manhattan. (The City of London is still twice as expensive.)

Pricey property constrains the economy by making it hard for people to move to places where they are more productive. Manchester and Birmingham are supposed to be the engines of the non-London economy, so this is bad news for all Britain.

What is to blame? Some housebuilders are leery of urban markets outside London. In the 2000s they ploughed in, only to get their fingers burned in the crisis of 2007-08. Financiers are cautious too.

However, land regulation may play a bigger role. According to a recent paper by Christian Hilber and Wouter Vermeulen of the London School of Economics, alongside Greater London, scarcity of open, developable land is greatest in and around Birmingham and Manchester.

The cities’ large green belts—land whose only real function is to stop urban growth—hem them in. Manchester’s is five times the size of the city. Birmingham’s is smaller, but fiercely defended.

The city council has submitted a modest plan to put 6,000 homes on the green belt. The central government recently blocked the proposal after a local MP, worried about the reaction of his constituents, caused a fuss.

Local politics is also to blame. Birmingham and Manchester cannot hope to house all their workers themselves; neighbouring councils must assist too. However, councils in greater Birmingham with lots of Conservative councillors resent becoming dormitory towns for a fast-growing Labour part.

Trafford, probably greater Manchester’s best-off council (and its only Tory-controlled one), has seen almost no housing construction in recent years.

How St Michael’s towers could look

27 Sep 2016, 11:04

As the pre-planning public consultation into the controversial towers proposed in Gary Neville’s development between Deansgate and Albert Square in central Manchester draws to a close, Place North West has produced a series of mock-up images to see how the new additions to the skyline might look if built.

It's intersteing to notice their desire to stay or the one to go back to the capital city

Video of crane being jumped.

Quote:
We’ve jumped up tower crane 1 (TC1) again from 84 metres to 108 metres high! This means we can now complete the steelwork to the east tower from level 16 upwards, then install the roof, building maintenance unit at level 20 and the plant room. It will also be used for high level cladding and removal of our third tower crane.

This is a nice spot, especially if you have the canal side. Balconies overlooking Castlefield, the rails and the city... and Castlefield/Deansgate is so close, you could almost spit on it.


Step downstairs and straight onto the canal area for a drink.



I hope the entrance faces the canal side and not the street.
