What lovely weather in Manchester at the moment. I hate it when this happens when I'm out of town! Always enjoy a good bit of sunshine in the city.

Just out of interest, will they cover the entire part of the new concrete arches in that rusty metal, or is this it? It looks a bit odd & incomplete to have just the top part rusty, with the rest exposed smooth concrete.

Yes, I was there today, a lovely spring day! Saw the second city crossing in action for the first time and took a look at the Owen St site...

I keep meaning to say this but thank you so much to everyone who posts/likes in this thread! It's so great to see people from all around the world interested in Manchester's renaissance. After decades and decades of neglect it's uplifting to see people from far away places commenting positively on the city and its future.

Circle Square.

Quote:
Image of Boutique hotel from the vid. Looks to be designed by FCB again with a groovy clad design.

Thanks for that AJD.

A bit more.

2 office blocks.

170,000 sq ft.
230,000 sq ft
400,000 sq ft in total.

The 230,000 sf ft office block has been brought to the market. Detailed talks with a number of occupiers. Because of the interest, the 170,000 sq ft office block has been brought forward and will be built at the same time as the 230,000 sf ft office block.

Close to naming both Hotel operators. Hotel on top of the 1000 space car park, and the Boutique Hotel AJD posted.

Working with the MMU, retail and arts space will be built under the Mancunian Way.
Working with MMU, and above the Mancunian Way, there will be a new major piece of public art, close to the new £30mill Screen School recently announced by Danny Boyle.

The proposal will be 2/3rds finished by 2019.

The select Properties residential buildings would have been built at the same time as the other buildings, but there will be too much construction activity on-site to be able to do that.

Plot 12 will be the last plot to be built, and will be a major facility for the city of up to 300,000 sq ft.

Well worth watching.(Gary Neville)

On the brink with 2 internationally renound 5* international Hotel operators to brand the residencies.

Office.

21 floors of 7000 sq ft floor plates
15-20 multi-let schemes

Hotel.

Looking for £200 a night room rate for a 5* room. Current room rate £155.(probably an average)

Public space.

50% of the land.

Connectivity from Deansgate through to Albert Square, "*Absolutely critical*." "That has to be improved, and that is one of the refinements being made."
"Bootle Street, failed miserably on that side." "Need to change what we are doing on Bottle Street." "We are doing as a team over the next few weeks."
"Lower square and steps fantastic." "Upper square to be used 365 days a year."(hence the cover/roof)

1500 new jobs.

Proposal complete within 5-6years.

Another couple of nearby developments from the same developer, Renaker Build:

Wilburn Wharf, a fitting nod back to Manchester's industrial heritage. Red brick and more than a passing resemblance to the large warehouses that dominated the city 200 years ago.



And One Regent, sitting next to the River Irwell on the Manchester/Salford border.

Manchester's real true waterfront area is at Salford Quays, a couple of miles outside of the city centre, although give it a few years and the area will have practically being incorporated within the city centre given the pace of development at present.

The Imperial War Museum North


New waterside restaurant and bar, 'The Bund'


The NV Buildings


New offices for private healthcare provider, BUPA (centre)


The first of 4x 26-storey residential towers, X1 Media City




Another large residential scheme on the waterfront, Clipper's Quay
