Oxford Square Phase 1
Masterplan | Midtown

Residential: 437,000sqft | Office: 400,000sqft | Developer: Bruntwood

Current Status: Pre-Planning/Vision

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post123105881

[IMG]http://i62.************/25p7bkl.jpg[/IMG]



A planning application will be submitted for Phase One in July:

Quote:
Subject to planning permission being secured, it is intended to deliver the first phase in full by 2018. Subject to the Executive’s endorsement, the following programme has been identified;-
i) Submission of a detailed planning application for phase one in July 2015
ii) Total site remediation July 2015 – December 2015
iii) Main utilities diversions August 2015 – November 2015
iv) Main works commence on site January/June 2016
This phase will deliver over 800,000sqft of space, nearly 36% of the masterplan as a whole. It will also be home to the Sir Henry Royce Institute, which is a government-funded research, laboratory, teaching and office space project - the Crick Institute's "little sibling".

Quote:
It is currently envisaged that the first phase of delivery would include:
i) The Sir Henry Royce Institute (400,000 sq ft of leading research, laboratory, teaching and office space),
ii) 437,000 sq ft of residential and serviced apartment accommodation
iii) The public square at the heart of the masterplan area (28,115 sq ft in total), plus a significant portion of the second public square to the south of Brancaster Road
iv) The major new east-west pedestrian route through the masterplan area, connecting Oxford Road to Upper Brook Street, and separately, two routes connecting the new public square to Oxford Road
v) Two key north-south connections between Charles Street and the east-west link route through the entire site

The first phase would therefore deliver 36% of the masterplan area total (1.7
hectares).

Let's hope those rich Cockneys buy into the Devo-Manc reality and get the 2nd tower onsite ASAP.

^ I really love the orange M5000 tram in the second to last picture!

This is a cracking development for the Quays. I think that the style of these 4 towers really suits Salford and Manchester - just look at the Beetham, Axis etc.

"Street party to launch £25m Manchester arts hub"...Home

Quote:
A new £25m arts centre will open in Manchester next month with a funfair-themed street party event hosted by film director Danny Boyle.

Called Home, the city centre cultural hub will include theatres, galleries, cinema screens, a bar and a restaurant.

Quote:
Plans have been announced for an official launch party over the Bank Holiday weekend of 21-25 May.
It will feature film screenings, chatshow-style discussions, live musical performances and storytelling.

On 21 May, Burnley-born Trainspotting director and Home patron Mr Boyle will host an evening culminating in a pyrotechnics display that will ring the centre, created by the merger of Cornerhouse and the Library Theatre.
'Informal and friendly'

Films, plays and music featured during the celebration will also have a Mancunian theme, organisers said.

Home's chief executive Dave Moutrey said: "We want everyone to feel welcome in our new Home, and that's what this weekend is all about.

"In addition to the bold international contemporary art, theatre and film for which we're known, the launch will see a whole host of activities for all the family take over our new spaces and the surrounding streets.

"It'll be five-day celebration that's fun, informal and friendly."
