Are all of this new buildings in the same "area" or "district", I mean, will they form a skyline???

seems that they are already catching up in height with London.
nah, they're really spread out, some miles apart. most being out of the city centre.

Yeah, I did take notice of the handwringing on the Manchester subforum, no doubt precipitated by Lumiere being put on hold.

now that is a shame, is there any restriction on the city centre for tall buildings? they should plan a specific site for highrise development. its all about planning.

I have to say that Manchester skyline is below espectations of a major city like this.

Update from the Piccadilly Tower site, taken yesterday. There has been no comment from the main developers. Wouldn't surprise me through. Officially there is no official hold, its just speculation.

Andysimo the project is, as officially it can get, on hold and what you see in these photos is the car park preparations.

From BBC:
The head of the minority partner in the Piccadilly Tower joint venture has announced that the building is on hold... for now.

Wayne Mellor, the managing director of Inacity has announced with some exasperation that in the current climate no-one will finance the 188 metre tall skyscraper allowing it to be built. Inacity was one half of the Merepark partnership that dreamed up the project and who retained a 5% share in the scheme when Ballymore bought in taking a 95% stake.

I wouldn't go off Wayne Mellor. He has come out with the rash things since some legal things happened. Ballymore the main owners of the project have not commented on anything. They own 95% of the project! Officially from the main developers there is no news and there is no hold. It is just speculation. The diggers and work men are still on site. I don't class that as a on hold.

I do, Ballymore has more or less put on hold, untill the market starts rising again ,every appartment block outside London. Probably you're the only one in the Manchester forum thinking otherwise....

Next time I'm back in Manchester, I probably won't even recognize the place with all of the construction going on. That wouldn't be too much of a stretch as last time I was utterly pissed the entire time, but that would be for a different thread.

Can't wait to get back and see all that's new.
double that,...

THE Co-operative Group has announced its intention to build its new headquarters on land close to its existing base in Manchester city centre.

The group has acquired the six-acre car park bordering Miller Street and Dantzic Street from the Co-operative Insurance With Profits Life Fund for an undisclosed sum.

Work will now begin on incorporating plans for the site and the new building, which will provide around 400,000 sq ft of office space, into an overall masterplan for the Group’s 20-acre complex which is bordered by Miller Street, Dantzic Street and Corporation Street.

The masterplan, which will transform an area of the city known as the Northern Gateway, will be unveiled next year.

The Co-op has decided to leave its Corporation Street head office as a result of rising maintenance costs for its existing dated office complex, which includes the New Century House office block, and the need to provide a first class working environment for staff.

The buildings to be vacated by the Co-op include: New Century House in Corporation St; Old Bank Building and Hanover Building in Hanover St; Redfern Building in Redfern St; Dantzic Building in Dantzic Street and Federation Building in Federation St.

Peter Marks, chief executive of The Co-operative Group, said: “Manchester has been our home since our formation in 1863 and we are delighted to be reaffirming our commitment to the city.

“We have made this decision only after an exhaustive search of sites in and around Manchester.

“It is a sustainable choice with excellent transport links which is good for our business, good for our employees and good for the city.”

The new headquarters building which will be built to high sustainability standards, in line with the Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), is expected to be ready for occupation by the Group’s 3,000 headquarters staff in 2011.
