Slate Yard.

3rd taller tower due to start soon. Same design as the first 2.

2nd picture includes Water Street, Wilburn Basin and the Ordsall Curve Bridge.

I hate that Premier Inn.

Looks like a start on Chets and the Medieval Quarter might be happening?

Axis and site.

Really is a fantastic and interesting build, considering the size and constraint of the site.

MBS Hotel.(from the MU car park)

Cladding and window going in.

Note the 2 Owen Street cores. The panoramic views form other side of the Hotel will be breath taking when all the towers are built.

Fantastic example of stupid design. Blank wall space in apartments to ensure the flats are dark and unlivable. Manchester is not the sunniest of cities, so architecture here should be doing the most it can to bring what little light we have into our living spaces.
