U+C confirm design competition for the Renaissance site on Deansgate.

Fingers crossed it's going to be fitting proposal for such an important location, right next to the retail core and Greengate.

Hotel.ocvupier will be secured. Hopefully a major retailer/s will be secured. And Apartments will sell for a premium due to their location.

All positives.

I have a feeling that a lot of developments of Manchester won’t go ahead. Recessions are predicted to happen in ten year cycles and next year will mark a decade since the global catastrophe of 2008. Thoughts anyone? Anything to assuage my pessimism?

Click on the link below the picture's and CGI's.

You can enlarge the CGI's to full screen and move them about so you can see all of them close up. Interesting.

Nice renders, but those towers look like they belong in the 1970s.

Nobody knows what is around the corner. The '10 year cycle' method of predicting recessions is quite a simplistic way of looking at it and in reality it doesn't work like this. People are keeping a keen eye on Trump and Brexit when investing, but in Manchester activity appears to have accelerated since the EU referendum. Whether this is temporary or not remains to be seen.

Much of Manchester's development is being fuelled by residential schemes, and there is an acute housing crisis in this city (and in the UK as a whole) which will continue whether or not we go into recession.

Manchester is also prepared to open its arms to any US refugees fleeing Trump, so this may increase demand in future
