They added 3D to Manchester, but they made it look gloomy. :/

I don't know what you're implying. I live in Manchester. The gloom is part of the appeal. I hate sunlight and joy. Remember joy? I used to feel that when I lived down south, it was revolting.

Sorry SomeKindOfBug - that sounded like a dig at you. It was meant to be a general analogy for the people that are coming on this forum in particular just to vent their jealousy about Manchester!

It shows how good it must be getting up here then!

With Cambridge Street(x2) Axis and Whitworth Street towers to come, the cluster really will look impressive from Beetham in a few years time.

Happy days indeed.

Here's a mock-up I created using Sketchup and Google Earth of the "South Central cluster".

From left to right - 11 Whitworth, Axis, Beetham, Cambridge St, 17NWS.

H was right. Ground testing continuing.

I had to sneak the last picture. Went back on my way to the car. The security guard wouldn't let me take it earlier, even though I asked him nicely.

Nice paving!

That looks BRILLIANT! It's going to be so cool to have another quality City Skyline in the UK. This will certainly add to Manchester's image and identity.

Designs revealed for 2 Angel Square
PNW: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news...el-square.html



Quote:
The Co-operative Group has released concept designs for the 200,000 sq ft 2 Angel Square office block in Manchester.

The scheme has been worked up by AHR Architects, with plans to submit a planning application by the end of April. The office has been scheduled to complete by the end of 2018.

2 Angel Square is part of the second phase of the Co-operative Group and Hermes Real Estate's 20-acre NOMA development near to Manchester Victoria Railway Station. The £800m scheme will be delivered over 10-25 years.

Stage two includes the 95,000 sq ft office, retail and leisure renovation of Hanover House which is due to complete in 2016, Moda Living's Angel Gardens 400-apartment scheme which is awaiting planning approval, and a proposed third office block, the 200,000 sq ft 3 Angel Square.

The Casey Group is currently on site delivering New City Square, a public realm area designed by Planit-IE.
