Mancunians always know when Winter is approaching because (aside from more rainfall and temperatures lingering around 5C), snow appears on the Pennine hills to the east of the city

(Not my photo)

Oh - and Santa appears sat above Albert Square

Interesting idea with the arch, but I personally think removing the building completely and opening it up is the best plan. That could lead to a wonderful entrance to both the city of Manchester and the new transport hub.

People arriving in Manchester would see a spacious new gateway rather than a crampt, enclosed space - it would make a huge difference.

Totally agree. And while I also don't want to downsize the need for more investment in the North (the need is huge), the fact is that London and the area surrounding it is just so damn important.

I've read a couple of studies that show the commutable range around London has over 18million as people are moving further out due to their housing crisis and high cost of accommodation. Couple that with the fact that London is one of the fastest growing and most important cities in the western world and it is clear that it needs transport investment.

That said, since I moved to Manchester, I have to agree that infrastructure here is also in much need of investment. It is far below what it should be for an area with this population (both the northern hub area and Greater Manchester) and as soon as anyone sees the state of the trains here, they have to agree that investment is desperately needed.

This will be the future view looking towards Manchester city centre from the back of Middlewood Locks in Salford.

All the wasteland in the foreground will be Middlewood Locks. Currently on site.

The yellow outline is Willburn Basin(Renaker), which is nearing completion.

The green outline is the 4 Trinity towers.(Allied London)

The light blue outline is No1 Spinningfields(Allied London), which is currently onsite.

Think the purple and dark blue outlines are St John's Village midrise Apartments, and the Central Village 250,000 sq ft office block.(Allied London)

The red outline, and the CGI tower, are the 3 St John towers.(Allied London) The tallest red outline site has construction hoardings around it. No construction activity yet. A Hotel operator has already been signed up.

To the right of Beetham tower, and to the left and behind Wilburn Basin will be the 4 Owen Street towers. The tallest being over 200 metres/64 stories.(currently onsite)

Again, to the right of Beetham tower alongside Owen Street, will be Axis tower, and 10-12 Whitworth Street tower. Axis is onsite. The previous building on the 10-12 Whitworth Street site has been demolished. With construction Of the tower waiting to begin.

Amongst the above tower cluster will also be 2-4 Chester Road/Castlefield tower.(Renaker) Still going through planning.

To the left of the town hall will be the St Michael's residential tower, and the office tower.(Gary Neville & Co) Waiting on further developments after 2 public exhibitions.

Phew!

Apologies for something isn't quite right.

Initially I wasn't keen on the design but I think the choice of colour works really well with the surrounding buildings.



Few screen shots of the verified views.

Central Village Enterprise Cluster | St John's
Office/retail space | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post136688343

  • Address: Central Village Plot, St Johns, City Zone Manchester M2

  • Architect: Cartwright Pickard

  • Floors: 9

  • Office space: 197,000sqft

  • Retail space: 23,000sqft

  • Parking: 465 (underground)

  • Developer: Allied London

Current status: Planning app submitted

Nearest transport: Deansgate Castlefield:







A planning application for Central Village has been submitted to Manchester City Council, and can be viewed here.

Central Village will be targeting smaller creative-sector businesses, and there'll also be just over 23,000sqft of ground floor retail space spread over several small units to encourage independents to establish here. Should be a real incubator of enterprise and creativity.

Finishing touches are being made to 101 Embankment, the old arches/new car park, and the bridge that leads to 101 Embankment.

Some more screen grabs from the Factory planning App.

You can see from this picture what a massive impact Factory and St John's will have on the city centre skyline.

Anyone?

Six Two Architects.


Quote:
Richmond Street - Manchester

The site is situated in the Village area of Manchester City Centre, on Richmond Street which runs parallel to Canal Street. Set within the conservation area, the site is currently occupied by a three-storey building that will make way for three, four bed, four-storey townhouses.

The layouts invert typical domestic arrangements and locate the open plan kitchen and living areas above the bedrooms on the third floor, to maximise views across the city roofscape and give a closer link to a roof top terrace.

The primary material palette will be buff brickwork. This is in keeping with the extensive brickwork surroundings and the proposed design will extend the wide range of brick textures and colours visible in the locale. This is complemented by dark grey steel cladding on the top of the stair core which wraps around the 3rd floor rear and gable ends, seamlessly integrating with the roof terrace railings and trellis. The overall building volume is divided into its constituent parts by recessed bands. Vertically, these define the individual townhouses, and horizontally, the garage/entry podium from the habitable accommodation above. To further break up the volume at a scale which relates to the adjacent buildings, the brickwork mass is excavated to provide relief to the elevations and to express the internal spaces.

The scheme will create the best homes in Manchester!

Jrb some of those Factory images had already been posted previously!

Think we should try and not post too many images because otherwise people just skim past them without appreciating it - and there's certainly plenty to appreciate about many Manc proposals!
