They should paint/clad the Arndale Tower in that exact shade of red. It would look like a mini CNA centre.

Anything would be better than the 'last night's vomit' that it's currently sporting.

Chancellor opens National Graphene Institute in Manchester



George Osborne toured the NGI with Nobel Laureate Professor Sir Kostya Novoselov, who discovered the material. Graphene consists of single atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure. It has been called a "wonder material" because of its potential uses. It was first isolated by Sir Kostya Novoselov and Sir Andre Geim in 2004.

Mr Osborne said the centre would "bring together leading academics, scientists and business leaders to help develop the applications of tomorrow, putting the UK in pole position to lead the world in graphene technology". More than 35 companies worldwide have already partnered with the university to develop graphene projects. The university's president and vice-chancellor Prof Dame Nancy Rothwell said the "state-of-the-art institute is an incredible asset, not only to this university and to Manchester, but also to the UK".

The government provided £38m for the construction of the institute via the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, with the remaining £23m from the European Regional Development Fund.

I hope Iamthestig doesn't mind me reposting his mock-up future Manchester skyline to give you a better idea of how it'll (hopefully) look in 5 year's time.

"Manchester's real estate investment boom"...

Quote:
PrintEmail More Sharing ServicesShare Comment Save Forget the sloping roofs and chimneys of Coronation Street. Manchester’s skyline is changing beyond all recognition and is now increasingly defined by sleek, modern skyscrapers.


Chris Perkins
The city is in the middle of a major real estate investment boom thanks to a strengthening economy, a large and well-educated population and a lack of supply.

For us, the attractions are clear. Putting our (and our investors’) money where our mouth is, M&G Real Estate made more than £400m of acquisitions in Manchester in 2014, making it our second most actively invested city globally last year.

Quote:
The most significant of these deals was the £320m Spinningfields acquisition, spanning some 500,000 sq ft of prime Manchester office space. We believe this is one of the largest UK regional office transactions on record.
The deal underscores the appeal of Manchester in particular - and of the UK’s big six regional cities in general - to major institutional investors. This is backed by proprietary valuations and analysis from our research team. They highlight Manchester as one of the most attractive regional office markets thanks to a range of factors, including relatively low grade-A availability as a percentage of total stock, solid rental growth, large overall population and strong demand credentials.

Ultra-prime assets in top central London locations are starting to look expensive, so the time is right to look for investment opportunities beyond the capital. The Spinningfields deal showcases how Manchester can offer the kind of secure, income-driven long-term returns that are the holy grail for heavyweight pension fund investors. The offices are leased in their entirety to RBS for a further 23 years and are subject to annual fixed uplifts of 3%, offering the very important element of inflation protection.

One of the attractions of the Spinningfields investment was that such prime, modern buildings are still relatively rare in Manchester. This in itself, however, opens up more great investment opportunities, be that through new developments or refurbishment.

We see both these areas as major drivers of UK real estate returns - the development of new, sustainable buildings in strong locations, and active management of existing properties, including their refurbishment, to better adapt to the changing needs of our customers. Manchester’s strong fundamentals make it well placed to benefit from both these trends and to continue to attract the attention of investors and developers, creating a virtuous circle for the City.

Bruntwood announces acquisition of the former BBC site...

Bruntwood today announced that it has acquired the former BBC site on Oxford Road from Realty Estates. It is a key strategic acquisition which, with the company’s adjacent holdings, will comprise an 8 acre development site and will see Bruntwood consolidate its significant interest in Corridor, Manchester.

Since the BBC’s move, Realty Estates have undertaken the demolition of the site and worked up a strategic development framework with Manchester City Council. Yousef Tishbi of Realty Estates said “Having worked up the masterplan for the site with The City we are pleased to have sold to Bruntwood who, we are sure, with MSP, will deliver a scheme that will help further develop the city’s proposition to the science and technology sectors”.

Quote:
The scheme proposed by Bruntwood will create a new community for business, science and innovation including 900,000 sq ft of commercial space as well as new public open space, retail, a hotel, car parking and high quality residential accommodation. Bruntwood will announce its detailed site masterplan in due course incorporating its adjacent property; the Manchester Technology Centre.
Quote:
The deal also represents another significant step in the growth of Manchester’s Innovation District; Corridor Manchester, where >£1.25bn has been invested in the last 10 years and a further £1.25bn is planned and committed in the next 6 years.
Bruntwood Chief Executive Chris Oglesby said: “We have long seen this as a strategically important site for Bruntwood, linking our extensive city centre office portfolio with our science and technology interests at Corridor Manchester through Manchester Science Partnerships. We are looking forward to developing out a masterplan that will be truly transformational for this area of the city. The finished scheme, plus the central Corridor campus of MSP, Citylabs and Alderley Park represent a world class cluster of >3m sq ft of commercial space aimed at satisfying the incredible demand that Manchester is witnessing from these fast growing sectors of the economy.”

Addleshaw Goddard advised Bruntwood on the acquisition and Davis Blank Furness advised Realty.
