Absolutely dreadful. It reminds me of a prison like the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Downtown Chicago.

There's also going to be a double-height restaurant and observation deck on the 65th/66th floors of Tower X which will be the highest restaurant in the UK.

I really like the Trinity Towers. Gosh, 67 floors, so close to crossing the 70 story mark. What a pity they didn't do that.

Still trying to imagine exactly where it is as I'm at work and I don't have a link to VDB's awesome project map.

I like the green bits at different levels, reminds me of the Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt.

With so many people moving into the city center, I am totally mistified why there isn't a greater need for office towers there as well.

Great. It's a good thing they cancelled those bridges between the towers (IMHO).

Trinity Islands.

The 2 blue sections bottom right corner.



The blue section far left is St John's, also Allied London.

The large expanse of green with the canal basin is Middlewood Locks, currently on site.

In essence the city centre is now starting to stretch out in this direction, as well as other directions all the way around city centre.

Developer Allied London wants to bring back the former ITV Studios, which are going to become part of its new St John's Neighbourhood.



The old Granada Studios

The former studios at Granada will be back up and running, say developers.

Allied London has announced the creation of ALL Studios, which will provide studio space for TV, film and music production at the former ITV studios.


Since acquiring Old Granada Studios in 2013, Allied London pledged to retain the heritage of the estate, which included the main studios.

As part of its plans, it will look to create a further 20 studios over the next two years, particularly for TV and music.

There is. Manchester's office vacancy is really low and core take-up was more than 620,000 square feet in Q4 alone. The issue is that office schemes take time and financing is still difficult, largely because of uncertainty.

Quite a few schemes are beginning to start speculatively now, rather than waiting for a pre-let. As the city centre heats up (prime rents are now achieving £34/sqft/pcm), outlying areas such as Salford Quays and South Manchester are starting to warm up too. Last year Salford Quays saw higher take-up than most British regional cities, so it's beginning to act like a city on its own.

Thanks jrb and VDB. I am not going to hide my excitement here and hopefulness that this gets built! I may have complaints about Manchester, especially it's shopping, transport and overall cleanliness, but it is with no doubt a hell of an exciting city to live in with all these developments, and they show that all my gripes have very real chances to be solved in the future.

I can see the transport and cleanliness gripes, but I've always found Manchester quite good for shopping. Mind you, I do live in a town of 70,000 so maybe I'm easily pleased for that.
