Its being built to the left hand side of the metal deck on the small plot. The metal deck is only temporary for a storage area.

It's going to lean over the canal slightly but the bulk of it will be built on the tiny site to the side




The Deck they've put in place is to give them more of a flat/"normal" construction site and means that if they drop stuff it doesn't land in the canal below

I would like your post VDB... but I can't yet. That said, I do like it Always good to see Ancoats develop. I wonder if it will ever get its own tram stop one day in the future.

Thanks.

Took well over 100 picture's on Sunday. 8 hours in town. Will upload the picture's in the coming day's.

Slate Wharf(white crane), Ordsall Curve(curved bridge +!rail line), Middlewood Locks(5 blue cranes + undeveloped land close by, including canal basin), Wilburn Basin(brown brick tower), Water Street.( grey brick tower)

And if all goes to plan over the next 5-10 years, that we know about, 3 towers at St John's, 1 private, and 2 PRS. Factory Cultural Centre next to them. On the other side of the bridge, Trinity Island, 6 PRS towers.

There are massing models CGI's of 1 tower at the far end of Slate Wharf, and 1 tower at the far end of Middlewwod Locks near to the city centre.

RHS Bridgewater

RHS Garden Bridgewater is a very remarkable site for an RHS garden. At one end, one of the most impressive terraced gardens in England, stepping down 20 m from the site of the historic Worsley New Hall to the lake. At the other, a magnificent eleven acre walled garden. In between 35 acres of woodland lying over deep,peaty, fertile soils. To the south, a long open area of parkland bounded on the south side by the Bridgewater canal. All within 20 minutes of the centre of Manchester.

The new Arrivals Building and its associated car parking are to be located on the southern edge of the site, outside the garden but giving ready access to both the walled garden and the historic house site. This approach avoids damage to the greatest asset: the structures, land form and mature trees of the garden.

The proposal for the immediate surroundings of the new Arrivals Building is intended to bring together a number of strands of the designed landscape in a single legible composition. In the broadest terms, as the visitor emerges into the garden, the walled garden is on the left and a new proposed lake is on the right. The new lake acts as a vital link between this area of the garden and the heart of the historic landscape formed by the Nesfield terraces and the old lake and also helps to deal with the considerable amounts of water in the garden.

In between the lake and the walled garden is a garden that links the two and helps to direct visitors to different parts of the larger garden.

The walled garden is the pièce de résistance of the first phase of RHS Bridgewater and is comprised of walled spaces from an outer walled garden enclosed by a low wall, through an intermediate garden which has a high wall on three sides to an inner space which has high walls all around. The intention is that the garden experience parallels the spatial one, becoming gradually more intense and also more colourful.

Just look at that view (not sure if we have seen this one).

The Guardian could be moving back to Manchester to save money.

Guardian considers returning to its northern roots

Quote:
The Guardian is “actively considering” moving back to Manchester in an attempt to save money.

Senior executives at Guardian Media Group have held “top secret” talks about moving the newspaper’s headquarters from north London back to its birthplace in Manchester, The Times has learnt.

Rent on its headquarters in Kings Place, near King’s Cross, has soared in recent years, and the newspaper started looking at other locations in London a year ago.

Insiders say that Kath Viner, the paper’s editor, is particularly keen on the move, which could happen within two years. “Executives are actively considering a move to Manchester,” one source said.

Most editorial and administrative staff would be expected to move north, although a core of journalists, including political correspondents and some executives, would remain in London. Those who refused to relocate would be expected to receive voluntary redundancy, the source said.

Insiders confirmed that discussions had taken place: “Many options are being discussed but no decision has been made. All options, including Manchester, are on the table.”

Guardian bosses are thought to be looking at the MediaCity in Salford, on the outskirts of Manchester. The BBC has relocated more than 3,000 staff there and ITV also has 750 staff at the growing media hub.

Channel 4 may also move out of London, to Salford or Birmingham, after Karen Bradley, the culture secretary, proposed last month that the broadcaster should leave the capital.

With better transport links in the next few years as part of the Northern Powerhouse project, the Salford media hub is fast becoming a credible and cheaper alternative to London.

The Manchester Guardian was first published in 1821 and stayed in the city for more than 140 years.

Guardian sources said office costs would still be expensive, but less than in London. “This all has to be weighed up before a decision is made,” one source said. “Some may want to move . . . The cost of living will be cheaper.”

A spokesman for Guardian News & Media said: “We are always looking at ways to reduce our cost base, including where different functions are located, but we have no plans to leave Kings Place at present.”

Won't that overhang be a magnet for the rough sleepers currently under the mancunian way?

Great news but they are a financial basket case. Would be the start of the London exodus, Manchester needs to build. They will come.
