Dangerous I know, but let's go with all the towers will get built, or most of them will. Have you not learnt your lesson jrb?

St Michael's.

To the right of the CIS tower-1 tower.
Angel Garden.

To the left of Water Street.(under construction)-10 towers.
St John's. x3
Trinity Island. X4

That's 18 towers.

You could also include Greengate with towers built, under construction, and proposed, New Victoria, First Street, etc.

I think 10-15 towers will see the light of day on the Manchester city centre skyline over the coming years.

SPS looks great! Am I right in believing that there was a proposal for a 3SPS, what's the latest on that?

By number of towers above 100 m being built it's just behind Istanbul, London, Moscow and Kyiv but above such cities like Paris, Frankfurt, Warsaw, Milan and so on, which is amazing really.

  • Number of apartments: 183

  • Start date: H1 2017

  • Developer: Factory Estates, Salboy

Fred Done's development company Salboy have launched "Citu NQ", a new apartment block for a vacant Northern Quarter plot.

Due to start H1 2017.

Quote:
Northern Quarter resi boom continues with latest Done project

https://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/new...-done-project/

A joint venture between Betfred founder Fred Done’s development company Salboy and Factory Estates has submitted a planning application for 183 flats in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

The site, currently used as a surface level car park, will be redeveloped into a block of up to nine storeys, totalling 183 apartments with four ground floor commercial units and rooftop gardens.

The scheme by the Tibst joint venture has been branded Citu NQ. The architect is IDP Group Architects, based in the Northern Quarter.

Once complete the residential units will be available for open market sale.

Euan Kellie Property Solutions is advising the joint venture, known as Tibst, on the planning application.

Subject to planning approval the development is due to start on site in the first half of 2017.

Ellie Philcox of Euan Kellie Property Solutions, said: “The Tib Street site is only one of the few within the Northern Quarter which remains underutilised, and the proposed development will realise the full potential of this site and provide new homes, as well as commercial space to support the continued regeneration of this part of the city centre.”

Difficult because all EU countries have different censuses at different times - not to mention varying methods to define what a city is.

The population of the City of Manchester (the bit in the middle of Greater Manchester) was 392,819 in 2001, which had increased to 503,127 by 2011 - an increase of 110,308 (22%), making Manchester the UK's fastest growing city and the third fastest growing local authority (after the London boroughs of Newham and Tower Hamlets). By 2014 it had expanded again, to 520,215.

The city centre has seen unprecedented growth, from only a few hundred in the early 1990s to well over 22,000 now (and potentially 50,000 by 2021).

Greater Manchester (which engulfs the city, suburbs and some commuter towns) had a population of 2.4 million in 2001, which rose to 2.7 million by 2011 and is now at 2.8 million.

So I'm not sure how that compares to other European cities - but nearly 400,000 people in 15 years is quite a lot!

How does it compare to Birmingham though?

Birmingham's local authority area is just over 1 million, making it the largest local authority in Europe. The wider West Midlands county around Birmingham has a population of 2.8 million - slightly more than Greater Manchester.
