This will probably be my last picture from this vantage point for a long time. Hopefully I will be able to come back at some point when the full exterior finish is complete.

Costar.

Quote:
Cole Waterhouse has appointed CBRE to market No 1 Old Trafford, a key strategic residentially-led waterfront development in Manchester.



The regeneration of the address includes proposed plans to develop 354 river-view apartments, retail, communal gardens with roof terrace, as well as public realm works.

The residential hub includes 139 one beds, 211 two beds and 4 three beds, in 18-storey and 15-storey towers, sitting across the Bridgewater Canal from Old Trafford stadium.

It is adjacent to the route of the planned £350m Trafford Park Metrolink line and benefits from a new Wharfeside tram stop, with access to the city centre, the Northern Quarter, Spinningfields and Deansgate shopping centres.

Damian Flood, CEO of Cole Waterhouse, said: “We are looking forward to working with CBRE on our No 1 Old Trafford development. The location of this scheme and the proximity to the new Metrolink stop means buyers will have everything they need at their fingertips. We are bringing a vibrant new neighbourhood to Old Trafford and we have worked closely with our team to show what can be delivered in this location.”

Steven Verity, CBRE’s Northern Head UK Development and Residential Capital Markets, said: “To say this is one of the most exciting residential property prospects in Manchester is an understatement. No 1 Old Trafford is a key development in the sustained regeneration of Greater Manchester and the surrounding area, pivotal to both the commercial and domestic rejuvenation of the district.

“The strategic location, appealing waterfront setting and ease of accessibility to retail and commercial sectors of the City makes this an incredibly attractive development. It’s an ideal commuter location for the largest employment zone in Greater Manchester."

There's so much space on the Salford side of things I expect a central core to shift that way as more highrises are built.

Are we being led to believe that Plot E of the Greater Jackson framework will be completed by 2020 alongside the Owen Street towers? If so then in just three years this entire area will be changed beyond recognition. Keep up the good work VDB.

That appears to be the intention, yes

DeTrafford already have quite a lot of projects on the go and a large pipeline down the road from here so hopefully they can mobilise the muscle required to have all of their sites under construction at the same time.

There's a severe shortage of construction workers in Manchester at the moment, with some firms having 5+ year waiting lists

I think Manchester & London are really proving to the rest of Europe why Britain is so great. What's happening in both Greater Manchester & Greater London is unbelievable right now. It has to be the leading country in Europe at the minute for the biggest investment, construction, change and boom for the a capital city and the second city.


Would you say this is about correct? Over Madrid & Barcelona, Rome & Milan, Paris & Marseille?

Salford, close to the city centre.

Many of the large and empty plots that used to litter the area are being developed and built on. Eventually the whole area will merge into and become part of the city centre.

Aerial Video TV, Twitter.(they do a sterling job)

As regards talls, yes. Maybe not Paris or Marseille? TBH I've never looked at the Marseille thread, but I know Paris is always building talls. But I would still stick with yes.

There are plenty more towers planned for Manchester that haven't been made public yet. With other's waiting to be built due to the lack of construction workers in Manchester. I was told earlier this year there is at least 10 years of construction work in Manchester as long as the economy holds up and investors and buyers keep on buying the apartments.

Apartment prices have rocketed in Manchester over the last few years. Off plan buyers over the last few years have made a financial killing. Demand is still outstripping supply. If that continues, so will construction of the towers.

At a guess there will be between 20-30new towers built in the city centre over the next 5+ years. 4 have gone up already. No1 Greengate, Cambridge Street, Wilburn Basin and Water Street. The Light Box, X1 Mediacity, X1 Salford Quays, Angel Garden, Exchange Court, Axis, Oxygen and Owen Street, 2 towers now, with another 2 towers to follow, are all going up now. The Residence is onsite as well. That's 11 towers. You can also include the MBS Hotel and No1 Spinningfields, which is an office block. There are also numerous midrise towers which we would have classed as towers a few years back in Manchester, but not anymore. There must be at least another 10 towers with planning approval and set to start soon, hopefully. 2-4 Chester Road, Deansgate South, St John's, Nickle and Dime - X2, GMEX tower(can't remember it's name), Circle Square, St Michaels X 2 is being redesigned, etc. TBH it's absolutely potty. And to be honest I've probably forgot some towers as well.

The Manchester skyline will look superb in the next 5-10 years.

Couldn't find a thread.

Planning app has gone in for the increase in the number of apartments at this site - from 246 to 263 - to make the scheme more viable.



A reminder of some of the elements of this scheme.
