Driving up to the back Circle Square via Upper Brook Street.

Imagine what it's going to look like when the car park and tower are build.

Found this on average home prices in cities around the UK. Hopefully if all these apartments in the pipeline get built over the next few years supply will keep up with demand and prevent Manchester rising up the table much while having the very nice side effect of improving the housing stock for residents in the city. More better and central housing while maintaining reasonble prices should be a boost for the competitiveness of the economy when looking to attract investment and skilled employees.

2-4 Chester Road.

The red outlines are the 4 Owen Street towers.

The yellow outline is another proposed tower. Can't remember it's name.

The property developer behind this proposal is Renaker. Expect it to get built.

That view coming down Chester Road and from Old Trafford(for United fans) is going to look immense. A great advert, and a great Gateway into the city centre.

I appreciate the renders look huge, but I decided to keep them at the same size

The link to the full application is below the renders.

Interesting graph and thanks for posting it.

I heard Brighton is allegedly on par with London house prices.

It's Peel Holdings, so don't expect the proposal to look anything remotely like that. In fact, I'm expecting their usual pile of shite.

The prices are not far off from what I've read and seen, maybe a bit less than Oxford/Cambridge but more than most other cities. Unfortunately wages for jobs in Brighton are not much different to wages in Manchester/Leeds etc which makes it particularly unaffordable. You can always commute to London from there to access the higher paid jobs but that will cost £300-400/month on one of the worst rail services in the UK which would eat up most of the higher salary for most people I think.
