Since 1969, Gateway House, or the "lazy S" as it's sometimes colloquially known, has been an icon for Manchester - standing proudly at the "Gateway" to the city from Piccadilly station - Manchester's busiest rail terminal. It's possibly one of Manchester's greatest examples of modernist architecture.

In the 1970s:







It's been looking tired for years but now it's finally been renovated, reclad and will open soon as a 182-bedroom StayCity hotel.

M-One Central | Northern Quarter
Apartments | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post126928436

  • Address: 47 Houldsworth Street, Northern Quarter, City Zone Manchester M2

  • Architect: IDP

  • Floors: 13

  • No. of apartments: 119

  • Developer: Factory Estates

Current status: Under Construction

Nearest transport: Piccadilly Gardens







Update by Slow Burn, who deserves a pint after his efforts today!

This one is going up really quickly and (oddly for a building of this height) all without a tower crane!







This will be sitting next door to 76-88 Great Ancoats St (pictured below) which should help to densify this part of town, whilst giving Great Ancoats St some definition/making a bit of a canyon out of it. Currently it's strewn with surface car parks and low-density buildings on either side

10-12 Whitworth Street tower proposal site.

The white hoardings show how close Axis and 10-12 Whitworth Street will be to each other.

Plenty of activity onsite on Saturday.

The Sun playing havoc with my picture's.

Owen Street, Saturday.

Too many construction workers onsite to start climbing on the fences to take picture's. Which is a good thing in itself.
