You can see how close the city centre skyline link is getting between Manchester city centre and Salford.

Between Beetham Tower and Wilburn Basin.(brown tower, far right)

That gap will be/maybe filled in in the next 5-10 years by Owen Street, 4 towers, St John's, 3 towers, Trinity Island, 6 towers.

TBH I will be surprised if all the towers see the light of day. But if the current positive economic conditions continue, the 4 Owen Street towers, and the 3 St John's towers will definitely get built. The question is how many of the 6 Trinity Island towers will get built? With Mike Ingall and Allied London behind the Trinity Towers proposal, I have very high hopes that all, or atleast some of the towers will get built.

Great picture , Matthew.

I would assume all development models such as this are true to scale.

Compare the MECD in height and size to the Commonwealth Aquatic Centre.

Again, I think the model goes some way to explaining why the MECD is costing £350mill.

Didn't realise both of these are under construction. They will definitely make Great Ancoats street look more like a city road rather than a ring road.

You may want to change the thread link though as it is for Old Granada.

101 Embankment | Greengate
Offices | Salford

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1440059

  • Address: 101 Cathedral Approach, Greengate, Salford M3

  • Completion: July 2016

  • Floors: 10

  • Office Space: 196,000sqft

  • Developer: Ask Real Estate

Current status

Nearing completion

Nearest transport:




101 Embankment is now looking pretty complete. Photos from various Manc forumers.








The new building sits at the gateway to one of the city's major peripheral regeneration districts, and as such it was advised that the scheme should provide an attractive ground floor street scene in order to knit the area in with the rest of the city.

The outcome of that is these retail units, as well as new paving and lighting underneath the railway viaducts.






Sainsburys have signed up to occupy some of the retail units.
