The interior:-




The refurb is happening by the same people who run the very successful Altrincham Market in south Manchester, which is pictured below



That will be a good addition I think, the Arndale food market is fine but Central Manchester could do with some more imo.

Number 1 Spinningfields is practically complete. It is nearly 100% full and occupiers will begin their move in from October.

With this in mind do you think that we will likely see a larger office tower proposal for Manchester in the foreseeable future? Would be great to see an office tower break the 120-130m mark.

Mixed residential and office development just approved.






The taller building (140m) is the resi part though. Think the office is around 60m which is the average with new office developments in Manchester at the minute. (Landmark St. Peters Square, One Two Five Deatsgate, Two New Bailey)

St. Michaels was the tallest office scheme proposed in Manchester coming in just above 100m, but since has been scaled back due to complaints about the impact on the area. I think the new proposal is mainly focused on the hotel, residential, commercial and amenities. (Although still incorporating office but not as a tower)

Old proposal: 2 towers. 1 Residential/Hotel the other office.



New proposal: One tower, mainly residential/hotel.

Yeah I am aware of these proposals (although thanks for taking the time to show me ), I was thinking something akin to 1 Spinningfields, 100% office.

If 1S is basically 100% let then that shows confidence in the city, it would be nice for that confidence to manifest itself into something rather large and glassy. I also think that although Manchester's tower proposals are unbelievable and unprecedented for a regional city, it would be great to have some variety and not just PRS schemes.

On a recent tour of 1 Spinningfields that some of us SSC'ers were treated to, the guy that took us round who was very high up in Allied London mentioned that they wished they'd made 1S taller. He said when it was in planning the city was only just recovering from the recession so they were quite cautious with how high to take it.

There are other newbuild office proposals in the city which are completing 50-60% full, and some struggling to get a pre-let, so perhaps that would dampen demand for a tall building. However, what 1 Spinningfields has shown, I think, is that high-profile buildings are popular with businesses, and are filled more easily than smaller blocks. I think most businesses prefer to be in a tall glass tower, probably purely for vanity reasons. So with that in mind maybe we will see a tall office (100m+) proposal in the city sometime soon...

I think a 150m+ office block would be a surprise and also not a surprise. Surprising in that nothing on that scale in UK regions to-date. Not surprising in that Manchester built two x100m office builds 40+ years ago and demand is through the roof.

If I was betting, then, subject to Brexit/economy worries, something should crop up soon just maybe too late in the cycle. A 150m + office build would be the next Manchester expansion phase, this being the 2nd epoch of mega development.
