Exchange Court looking very classy. Has turned out well!

So am I correct saying it's the tallest building in Salford? 4th tallest building outside London? Tallest building in the U.K outside London City, Manchester City & the Liverpool area. Second (currently complete height) within the Greater Manchester province? Changing the list as follows for tallest buildings in the U.K as:

1) London
2) Manchester
3) L'pool
4) Salford
5) B'ham
6) Leeds

I don't think you can consider adding Salford as a separate entity if you don't consider adding Croydon/Canary Wharf/ or the City, it just doesn't make sense.

Spotlight on Manchester
Savills UK


Link to report (0.5mb)

News

- Place North West: Affordability battle putting councils under ‘tremendous pressure’

- BusinessDesk North West: Manchester is booming ‘but needs more property development’

- Savills UK: Manchester is booming, but needs more property development across all sectors to meet demand, says Savills



Property agent Savills UK have launched a report on Manchester's property market, identifying several key issues:
  • Despite many thousands of residential apartments currently being delivered, the city is still falling short of its housing needs by several thousand apartments each year.

  • Savills state that older generations in Manchester are now looking to move into the city centre to be nearer to amenities, and so the next ten years will see demand for housing stock more suited to them. This will free up homes for families in the suburbs.

  • As the city centre residential market overheats, suburban areas near transport nodes will start to see more high density residential development.

  • James Evans, head of Savills Manchester, said: “Demand for grade A office stock is so high that it’s spilling into secondary stock and pushing up rents there."

  • Longer term, Savills expect to see the core office market expand into areas previously seen as fringe such as Oxford Road, Irwell Corridor and the Ancoats area.

  • The hotel development pipeline in Manchester and Salford is
    expected to remain fairly well supplied, with 2,713 beds due for
    delivery in 2018-2020. If all these beds are delivered over that period
    then this will equate to a 20% increase in supply.

  • The City Council have traditionally had a restrictive view on student accommodation but it is now clear there is much pent-up demand. A revised planning policy for purpose-built student acommodation (PBSA) will be launched in early 2018, which will allow PBSA developments within well-planned areas of the inner city.

Salford is one of the ten boroughs which makes up Greater Manchester:



"The City of Manchester" and "The City of Salford" are technically separate cities, but really Salford - and the other ten boroughs - are in Manchester's metropolitan area.

It's like the City of London and Westminster, or Buda and Pest.

Real shame that Exchange court couldn't have broken the 150m mark.

I really do think that's the minimum height for a tower to have real presence on a skyline.

Yes, understand. I guess we can say it's the second tallest in Manchester (for now!).

Note the 2 Owen Street towers under construction in the distance. Eventually there will be 4 towers. Also, the Residence tower next to Exchange Court is now onsite.
