I love how the quality of the glass makes these buildings look amazing, even though they have pretty simple shapes. I wish Jason Hawkes would do a fly over video of Manchester rather than London all the time.

Economy update:



Quote:

The latest report shows that Manchester has the strongest housing market across any U.K city. The city registered annual house price growth of 7.3% year-on-year to the end of August which continues a trend which began back in 2014. Investors seem to be switching away from the London market, with Manchester now appearing more strongly on the radar. When you bear in mind that inner London has been the benchmark for the UK economy for decades, this is significant.

A report by Savills also adds more meat to the bone with confirmation that the take-up of office space in Manchester during the first half of 2017 was up 20% year-on-year compared to the same period last year. The tally for the first ten months of 2017 has been well over 1 million sq ft. In comparison with other U.K cities such as Birmingham which is just above half that amount, slightly over 600 thousand in the same amount of time. KPMG recently stated Manchester is the most exciting place in terms of business in Europe at present.

To add fuel to the fire, tourism has never been stronger in Manchester. One of Manchester's five star hotels "The Lowry Hotel", has achieved its best monthly income since it opened in 2001. October figures and the occupancy level exceeded 90 per cent. Chinese tourists has had a major boost thanks to the direct link with Beijing. Chinese tourist contribution to the region's visitor economy has doubled to £140 million per year. The number of Chinese students enrolling at the University of Manchester is double the rate of other UK universities.

Chinese president Xi Jinping announced that Manchester Airport had secured the UK's first direct service to China outside of the South East during his state visit to Britain in October 2015, and Hainan Airlines' flights began in June 2016. Now a newly released study, entitled 'The China Dividend: One Year In', has found that the connection is generating a significant economic reward or 'China Dividend' for the Northern Powerhouse. The route has carried 90,000 passengers between Manchester and Beijing, 15 per cent higher than forecast and prompting an increase in frequency to a daily service between the two cities. The value of goods exported by businesses across the North from Manchester Airport to China has increased by 265 per cent to almost £200 million per month.
Not to mention the changing skyline, only city outside London having 200m+ towers u/c,
a billion pound airport expansion among many more achievements. The terrible tragedy
this summer in Manchester has only made the city stronger and strive harder for greatness.
Proud times!
