6 towers above 100 m UC/Groundworks - amazing. Most of the European capitals can only dream about this and we are talking about non capital city here.

Manchester Airport has just hit a new passenger record: 25 million in the twelve months to October.

At certain times over the past year, the airport was handling 104,000 people per day.

The Airport was recently approved by US Homeland Security to have US Pre-arrival security clearance, meaning flight to the US from Manchester will be made far easier, allowing the Airport to further grow its long-haul offering.

The Airport is currently undergoing a £1bn expansion which will enable the Airport to handle 50 million passengers by 2025.

Pre-clearance is the worst; it sounds great but it's a pain in reality. Abu Dhabi has been a mess with it.

X1 The Landmark | Middlewood
Apartments | Salford

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post136372535

  • Address: 4 Liverpool Street, Middlewood, Salford M5

  • Floors: 5, 10, 14

  • Number of apartments: 190

  • Completion: 2018

  • Developer: X1

Current status: Planning application submitted

Nearest transport: Salford Central










X1 have submitted a planning application to Salford City Council for a new 14-storey, 190-apartment block in Middlewood.

Quite a daring proposal in terms of size, this location is about 1.5 miles from the city centre, and there are very few public transport options other than bus surrounding the site. This part of the city is developing quite quickly now with the Middlewood Locks development adjacent bringing nearly 2,000 new apartments to the area as well as canalside shops, bars and restaurants which will help link this area seamlessly into the city centre.

Certainly much better than the previous proposal for this site:

I never realised that we will never actually get to see this view of 10-12 Whitworth St West until I saw these massing models. As even if 10-12 races ahead and overtakes Axis by a considerable amount, by the time it is complete Axis will at the very least have some sort of core obscuring this view. Interesting that the image seen most for it is not one we will ever see in reality!
