Loving the glass roof on the new Terminal 2

Honey cone-shaped, reflecting the symbol of Manchester (the Bee).

Small apartment scheme in up-and-coming area has just started construction. This area has a very bright future. Beautiful old mills and warehouses in an easy grid street pattern with a huge (by Manchester standards) park on the doorstep.

Are there balconies on each room overlooking the oval in that new Hilton Hotel?

I really like the idea of that!

The much derided X1 Mediacity development, Salford Quays. Another 3 towers to follow. Just posted on the Manchster forum.

This might restore a bit of faith in the proposal?

View it in HD, if only for the panoramic views of Salford Quays.

1 side of the 3 floors looks like it has almost been reclad. At least that bodes well for the 3 floors on the other side of the tower which still have grey cladding on.

1 week ago.

I run the Manchester Development Map. It has over 41,000 views and I've been told that many of the city's planners, developers, architects and consultancies have it bookmarked on their PCs!!

It's phased. For the tallest block on the right and the third tallest to the left of the orange block it's 2018/19, for everything else in that cluster it's 2019/20.

For the cluster on the left it's probably about 2021.
