The Mayfield propsal, Piccadilly Station, and the proposed HS2 Station.

Aerial picture, Artists impression, and model.

The question is, what to do with Gateway House, as it blocks the entrance to and from the proposed HS2 Station. When the whole area could be opened up, if Gateway House were to be demolished. Should it be?

Heads up to Urbnist for noticing it.

Not sure if either screen grabs are bigger via my iPad?

Screen grabs of the model alongside the recently released Artists impression of the Mayfield proposal.

A public consultation is due to take place this afternoon, to gather views on Bruntwood’s proposed £60m extension of its Citylabs concept on Manchester’s Oxford Road.



The development of Citylabs 2.0 and 3.0 will total 205,000 sq ft, and forms the first project under a strategic property partnership with Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, announced earlier this year at MIPIM.

Designed by architect Sheppard Robson, Citylabs 2.0 and 3.0 will provide high-spec office, laboratory and collaboration space on the CMFT campus on Corridor Manchester.

The £25m Citylabs 2.0 totals 90,000 sq ft of labs and offices. Subject to planning permission being granted, construction work will begin in autumn 2017, with completion expected in late 2018.

Citylabs 3.0 will span 130,000 sq ft and integrate the development of new buildings with the Old St Mary’s Hospital, a listed Victorian building. Construction is planned to start in summer 2018 and is due to be completed in 2020.

The £35m project includes the restoration of a currently unused former chapel on the site, which is ear-marked for a café/dining area with the potential for meeting room facilities, as well as extensive external landscaping and the provision of new gardens for Citylabs occupiers and other users of the hospital facilities.

The development, a joint venture between Manchester Science Partnerships of which Bruntwood is the majority shareholder, and CMFT, will take the total built on the site to 300,000 sq ft following the construction of the 95,000 sq ft Citylabs 1.0, which was fully let shortly after opening in 2014. Citylabs 1.0 was a refurbishment and extension of the former Royal Eye Hospital.

Once complete, the three-part Citylabs complex will have a development value of £150m.

The drop-in exhibition takes place today between noon and 7pm at Citylabs 1.0, Nelson Street, Manchester, M13 9NQ.

Additional images of the proposals will be on display, and members of the development team will be available to answer any questions.

Just checked. It's no longer available.

So many updates and both upcoming and ongoing projects in Manchester right now, crazy! I just hope they all are serious and go ahead. My run down anyway...

Central Sky Park - They need to make there mind up. Do or pass it to someone else. They having been talking about it for 5 years now. Hope this time it's full steam ahead... We'll see.

St Johns Place - No worries about this project. I am confident it will be nothing but amazing.

Piccadilly Tower - Found this funny. Hope I'm wrong and they are actually serious but I have VERY little hope for this project. I personally think they are pretending like it could still be on the cards, when they are really hoping for a big pay out from the government. They know the land would be a major asset to the HS2 project and are acting like they are going to put a skyscraper in their way so it will make them more eager to purchase for good money. We'll see.

Gateway House - My opinion would not to knock. Not pay Ballymore for there land but instead (and if possible) to put a big arch through the building. Solves the issues.

City View Development - I actually really like. Think it will look very impressive. Looking forward to this one fingers crossed.

Trinity Islands - It's changed so much, I'm lost.

X1 Media City - That better not be the final clad!!!

Good run down mileymc1.

With Piccadilly tower I think this has been made increasingly likely with the announcement of HS2. That site will probably the most expensive site in the city in ten years, with Piccadilly station itself nearby: including HS2, long-distance trains, suburban connections, Metrolink, local/national bus/coach services and now murmurings from TfGM of a new Metro Underground network which will have a station at Piccadilly. Think a more office-based approach will become likely here. Currently the office block is small whilst the residential tower is 60 stories. We could see a 30/40 storey office tower with a 60/70 storey resi tower here, and maybe a few smaller blocks too.

Business leaders in Manchester will ask the government to prioritise transport spending in the North of England over the next decade.

The UK is by far the most centralised country in the world when it comes to government investment: Londoners enjoy transport spending which is six times greater than spending in the North of England - a gap of £1,600 per person, per year. The North has 15.1 million people compared to London's 8.7 million.

I welcome forumers in other countries - particular Germany - to comment on this and how dire a situation it is (and then we wonder why countries like Scotland want to break off from the UK )


Transport tops wishlist for Autumn Statement

Not disagreeing regarding the need for more investment in the North, but using the Greater London population figure is misleading. The larger London commuter belt is actually around 14m people, so they're comparable in population.

Manchester City Football Club Academy.

Along with a new Leisure Centre, new 6th Form College, and the new Manchester Institute of Health & Performance.

No new news, just up to date aerial shots of the CFA, the Etihad stadium, and the Collar and Etihad Campus sites/land around the stadium.

This is what the site looked like before City redeveloped it, and made it the CFA.



Now.
