Lightwaves 2016 | Salford Quays

The annual Lightwaves event has returned to Salford Quays, and will be running until the 18th December. 9 artworks using light have been placed around the Quays and, in some cases, in the water.

Manchester Evening News: Lightwaves will add a burst of colour to Salford Quays later this year

The refurbishment of the Royal Exchange is nearing completion. There was already a theatre in the building, but they've now added over 16,000sqft of office space - and they've also redeveloped the retail units and retail arcade through the middle of the building, and added uplighting around the facade.

Manchester Climate Change Strategy | 2017-2050




The city's authorities have set up a new agency tasked with reducing Manchester's impact on climate change.

Manchester Climate Change website: http://www.manchesterclimate.com/

Manchester Climate Change Strategy 2017-2050 report: http://www.manchesterclimate.com/sit...%202017-50.pdf

Green Growth: Event: Manchester Climate Change Strategy 2017-50 launch


  • Manchester's ambition is to become a zero carbon city by the year 2050.

  • This makes it one of the first cities in the world to subscribe to such a commitment.

  • The Manchester Climate Change Strategy is one of the most ambitious climate change strategies to date, aiming to totally neutralise the city's environmental footprint.

  • The strategy was officially launched on December 5th.

  • Between 2014 and 2016, the city has reduced its annual CO2 emissions by 6,000 tonnes thanks to funding from the Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub.

  • The city's authorities have also launched a Low Carbon Network, to promote local businesses over international imports - and to encourage the purchase of low carbon environmental goods and services.

I can't believe that image has been displayed, what an insult to Salford (and the UK in itself) complete misrepresentation of the area.

Well to be fair large parts of Salford do look a bit like that, but the idea of a banner is usually to show the best looking shots of a city rather than the crappy parts!

Probably shouldn't be on there.

No new updates or news after 2 public consultations. Last Tweet on the St michaels website was in October. Nothing since. Looks like Gary & Co maybe having a major rethink after the public backlash. Interesting video. Timeline, cranes, towers rising.

Cornbrook Hub | Cornbrook
Masterplan | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=579741&page=7

  • Address: Cornbrook Hub all plots, Cornbrook, City Zone Manchester District 15

  • Architect: 5Plus

  • Floors: 7-24

  • Authorities: Manchester City & Trafford MBC

  • No. of apartments: 100

  • Other amenities: a hotel, bars, restaurants and retail

  • Developer: Peel Land & Property

Current status: Pre-Planning

Nearest transport: Cornbrook



Despite not being a particularly impressive development, Cornbrook Hub represents the GMCA flexing its muscles and using its new powers for the first time.

The GMCA is Manchester's new combined authority, which binds all of the city's ten boroughs together under a new Mayor, who will be elected in May 2017.

The Cornbrook Hub site straddles the boundary between Manchester City and neighbouring Trafford, which comes under a separate authority. The GMCA will be using its new powers to CPO (compulsory purchase order) land in this area to create a developable collective of sites to make it easier to deliver the Cornbrook Hub plan.

The plan also involves the redevelopment of Cornbrook Metrolink station - which sees one tram every 45 seconds into the City Zone, which is the main appeal of this area.
