Have to say, this is my favourite development of 2016.

It looks great on the picture's, but close up it's even better. The quality of the glass, cladding, and repaired exterior car park brickwork is superb.

I really hope 100 get's built as well.

101 Embankment, Greengate.

Click on the link to see 2 set's of picture's. 14 in total.

Manchester's Piccadilly Gardens will be getting a £10m redevelopment, including new bars and restaurants, improved lighting on a rather shady part of the square, new trees and plants as well as raised grass areas.

Superb site overview photos from alex.roberts:

On the right there is the site for Tower D (140m, 44 floors) - concrete reinforcements going in and they have a concrete-pouring machine doing its thing there as well. Expecting the core to start rising here in the New Year.

Meanwhile, over on the left hand site of the site they're still digging down to base level for Tower A (64 floors, 200.5m). The huge mound in the middle there is where Towers B and C (50 floors, 158m and 37 floors, 122m) will be going in future - they are due to start construction in summer 2017.





Tower D (140m, 44 floors):

Thanks VDB. The restaurant pavilion certainly looks better than the atrocity that is there now, but I can't see why they won't just remove it and return it back to a park?

Any idea what the wall will look like from the transport end?

Piccadilly Gardens would be so much better if they could just move the buses elsewhere, quite where, I don't know though

Think there's talk of moving the bus station to Piccadilly station (where the taxi rank on Fairfield St is now) as part of the redevelopment there

Afraid these are the only renders we have at the moment, at least until a planning application is submitted

Deansgate South | Great Jackson
Apartments | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1858701&page=2

  • Address: 10-12 Whitworth St, Knott Mill, City Zone Manchester M2

  • Architect: Ombler Iwanowski

  • Floors: 13

  • Start date: early 2017

  • Number of apartments: 53

  • Height: 43m

  • Developer: Knott Mill Securities

Current status: Groundworks

Nearest transport: Deansgate Castlefield:






Cute little development on the lower end of Deansgate has now started groundworks by the looks of it. To give context, this is just adjacent to where the Owen St towers are. Across the road, Renaker have also proposed another 21-storey building - so this area of town, which is currently wrought with surface car parks and post industrial empty land, is filling up pretty nicely:
