That St Michael's looks nice, but those steps really need escalators. Without that, it will be a dead space in the city. People in reality just don't like steps and there are a lot of steps here.

Agreed Justme, although the steps don't actually lead anywhere - just to a roof garden with lots of bars/shops around it. That's one of the issues people on the Manc forum have with this scheme; it's effectively a cul-de-sac in the centre of town.

The towers, however, are pretty decent - and it's nice to have a break away from the blocky-ness of Manchester's current tall proposals.

This project could be a real game changer for Manchester. It's another class for regional city and you see these sort of projects in Asia cities only, like Singapore, KL of Seoul.

I agree that it is a very nice pair of buildings, and I can't fault the visual look of the retail area, but like you say, it is a cul-de-sac that goes nowhere, and to make it worse, it goes nowhere except up... To even kill it more, it's steps.

These rarely work. People need a reason to rise up in shopping areas, and unless there were dozens of shops at the top floor, it will probably flop. This isn't like Liverpool One which has that great garden on the top roof as that is only the 3rd floor and there are enough reasons to get to the second (or even top with the cinemas) and the huge space up there, not to mention the gentle rise from the waterfront and escalators.

This reminds me of the failed Zeilgallerie in Frankfurt (not to be confused with the successful My Zeil also in Frankfurt). The Zeilgallery had 7 floors of shops with escalators and lifts. At the top were restaurants, an iMax and the city's best (and free) observation point, and it still failed. Nobody would go past the 2nd or 3rd floor (as you can see by this photo: http://tinyurl.com/jj6darp) It flopped and despite being a modern shopping center in the very heart of the retail area, it was demolished last year.

Pity as I really like those buildings and think retail is great in this part of town, but....

It probably has been posted before. But if not.

It was posted, or more likely reposted on Vimeo 5 day's ago.

For those that haven't seen it.

Splitting opinion on the Manc forum - the newly-completed Cambridge St development.

I think it looks sharp.
