Don't think this view of the model has been posted yet.

Axis and 10-12 Whitworth Street.

Axis is onsite. And 10-12 is now cleared.

All credit to js1000. His work.

This is a fairly accurate visual representation. It's based off an OS map with towers correctly positioned and all towers have accurate plan dimensions so they are the right proportions.

If all four Owen Street towers get built (good chance) then it will be incredible:

Is the Whitworth Tower really going to take until 2020 to be complete? Also I was sure that the tallest of the Owen Street Towers is going to be complete in 2018. Is this correct?

I love the idea of these old mills turning into apartments, but in the case of these big ones, how do the architects take into account all the windowless space deep inside? These are very wide buildings and generally speaking much wider than normal apartments.

Is there an internal courtyard we can't see from the renderings?

I'm not sure about this one in particular, but yeah they usually have a big internal courtyard with a glass roof to let the light in.

Some examples from around Manchester:
