A first look at Tonkin Liu's Tower of Light: a 40 m flue tower and a facade enclosing the new Vital Energi CHP Energy Centre.

1080p, full screen, to see detail.

If only Peel didn't own Pomona.

The land next to the River Irwell and stretching back off the picture. Peel have sat on it for decades and have done nothing with it, while the city centre in the picture continues to expand. Any property developer with half a brain would have redeveloped Pomona by now into a marina, parks, waterside walks, apartments, boat houses, retail, leisure, etc.

The first building in the picture is Peel's first attempt at an apartment block on Pomona, if can call it that? It looks more like a prison. In fact, it looks worse than a prison. It's f***ing s**t!. Sorry for swearing.

This picture posted today by Dandocto gives a great perspective of what the towers currently look like from Street level. The tallest tower, far right, is currently at 27 stories, with another 37 stories to go. Put it another way. Double the current height and add another 10 stories. The smallest tower, left, is currently 1 or 2 stories taller, going off what Stumpey recently posted on the Owen Street thread. That leaves another 15 or so stories to go until it's topped out at 44 stories. Still to come are the 37 and 50 storey towers in-between the 2 towers currently under construction. When all 4 towers are built there will be 1508 apartments in total.

Manchester has a problem at the edge of the historic city centre - walkable, inviting streets give way to really unattractive roads and streets lose their coherence. Anyone walking towards them just has no incentive to carry on and so it feels like opportunities to expand the city centre are being missed.

I wish new buildings would help create urban streets that are recognisably Manchester - warehouse scale buildings of 6-8 storeys with the open spaces and tall buildings towards the back of the block. At the moment it looks like too many tall buildings surrounded by open space are being built.

I hope I'm wrong though?

You're completely correct, and as the city centre's walkable core starts to increase (which it has been doing for years now), people are starting to wonder why we have a great big horrible ring road surrounding the city, effectively choking it.

I live on the Ring Road, and it's a pain in the arse trying to cross it. There are several sets of lights, traffic islands. Can sometimes take up to 10 minutes to cross it.

The council are aware of the issue though, and are re-doing certain areas in the next few years to provide wider pavements, better landscaping and more high quality crossing points to encourage pedestrian cohesion between the various inner city areas. Manchester will truly start to expand outwards when its inner city areas don't feel so separated from the city core.
