UOM new £350milll Engineering Campus.

You need to click on the MECD Twitter link below, and scroll down to the Tweet with the 3D virtual reality link. Once there click on the link, a rotating 3D box will appear, let the 3D virtual reality screen load, and off you go. Used on my iPad. Looks great. Not sure what i's like on a PC and using a mouse.

The first picture shows the site from a few days back after the royal visit. Flat, cleared, and ready to go.

X1 Mediacity.

First 2 towers have sold out and are onsite. 3rd tower is being marketed.

I think the street view at the bottom really gives a good impression of just how gigantic this project is when seen in person:

Peering into the basement at the south of new mill from murray street. Are they building the partition walls right up through the structure? Or is this just some reinforcement? Can't get mcc online to see the plans.

Hmmm, no balconies and narrow slit windows on this building. Looks a bit bland to be honest.
