The tour is now part of a newly released website for St. John's which contains more information about the site & its buildings.

Announced too that they would be on site by September.

Enjoy.

A little dated, and missing quite a few developments, but a nice little snapshot of what's currently taking place in Manchester city centre ATM.(no Owen Street.

Briefing: Manchester’s changing skyline

24/06/2016 | Institutional Investment/financePrintDownload

Billions of pounds of schemes are under way in the heart of the North West. EG maps the cranes for a true picture of Manchester’s development boom

Manchester’s skyline is changing. The city council’s masterplan shows billions of pounds of new development, from station revamps to residential skyscrapers and new neighbourhoods.

But how sustainable is that growth? While many schemes are getting off the ground, not all proposed developments are likely to get funding. One Manchester-based developer said this was due to an historic miscalculation in construction cost appraisals – which have been estimated at £150 per sq ft rather than the real cost of £180-£190 per sq ft.

Colliers International’s Manchester Development Watch, carried out with assistance from students of Manchester University, shows that in June there were 24 active cranes bringing forward new developments in the city, with offices topping all sectors in terms of growth.

Here EG maps out the research to show where development is already taking place.

“It is interesting to note the mix of asset classes coming through in developments across the city centre, from offices to student accommodation through to hotels.”

Michael Hawkins, director, national offices, Colliers International

It's out.

Etihad stadium, Etihad Campus, and Collar site.(curved building)

A massing block glimpse of the future from a few years back. Obviously changed now. Will be very intetesting to see what the final proposals will look like for the Collar site and the Etihad Campus.

I quiet like it. But it's a little too fussy, and I don't like the blanc wall at the lower levels which faces St Peter's Square.

A 20 storey Hotel is not to be sniffed at though.

In comparison it will be the same height as the MBS Hotel.

It's amazing them Owen St scrapers are actually going up. They look like something you would expect to see in the capital not the 2nd city.
