Manchester Tall Buildings Study | UrbInfo

UrbInfo website: Click
Full report: Click

UrbInfo has published Manchester's first ever Tall Buildings Survey.

Key figures
  • Manchester currently has 27 tall buildings over 80m/20 storeys in height.

  • There are 61 tall buildings proposed for the city. 13 of these are currently under construction, with a further 6 starting construction soon. There are 23 more approved, and 6 currently making their way through the various council planning departments across the city.

  • The city's tall buildings are dominated by residential use. 18 of Manchester's current tall buildings are for residential use; 8 for office; 2 for hotel and 1 for student accommodation. In the pipeline, 58 tall buildings are residential, 4 hotel, 2 office and 2 student accommodation.

  • The majority of Manchester's tall buildings have appeared over the past two decades. The 1960s saw the completion of 4 tall buildings, followed in the 1970s by 1. The 1980s saw 0 tall buildings as the city spiralled into decline, while the 1990s saw just 1 tall building completed. Then the 2000s saw 11 completed. While the 2010s have seen 9 completed so far, it is expected that this total will rise to at least 19 by the end of the decade.

  • The majority of the city's tall buildings - present and future - are located inside the Metrolink City Zone area, Manchester's CBD, which will have 51 tall buildings in total by 2021. However, Salford Quays (21 tall buildings) and Central Salford (13) will form smaller clusters.

What constitutes a 'tall' building in the eyes of a Mancunian? If the benchmark used is 80 meters then this presents a serious analysis.

Personally I go off 100 meters.(for the UK)

To me.

Midrise.
Tower.
Skyscraper.

Manchester's benchmark has been set by Beetham tower. Long before that the CIS tower. Most people with an interest in SSC would class Beetham as a tower and not a skyscraper. So going by that analogy, anything just under and around the height of Beetham should be classed as a tower. Where that get's blurred in my opinion is the tallest tower at Owen Street and Trinity Island. Because of the substantial height increase over Beetham tower, you could possibly class them as Skyscrapers?(by UK standards) Maybe not?

This will help you understand what's going on and where in Manchester City centre. Google the developments named. Not got time to include them all in the post. Apologies.

Probably from early Summer? You can see the current tallest Owen Street tower starting to make an impact. And the Ordsall Chord works on-going. Great views of the current empty plots on either side of the Irwell which will become or St John's and Trinity Islands. The other plots are New Bailey, Middlewod Locks, and Great Jackson Street.(next to Owen Street)

Manchester looks rather organised and structured in the image unlike most other British cities which are urban sprawls, I imagine it had to be to benefit the manufacturing industries during the industrial age. Everything is linear-in-process in manufacturing, it's the most effective and efficient way of getting products off the production line to the distributor then to the consumer. I mean look at them roads!

Benefits of the modern world, good for building skyscrapers!

The benchmark used in the report is buildings which are 80 metres or 20 storeys in height, whichever comes first

We have lots of very straight roads linking the city centre to the surrounding hinterland as well. Hyde Road, Chester Road, Bury New Road, Liverpool Road (now the M602), the Kingsway and Wellington Road North being a few that I can think of. Probably something to do with the Romans, and the fact that Manchester's flat landscape makes it easier to plot straight roads on a grid-like structure.
