The last say 3months have been the greatest in Mancunian history for projects both in scale/height and quality. Truly outstanding for any city not only a small regional.

I'm not sure which is the original and which is the new, but as a notorious lover of red brick I have to say I prefer the second

Just read this. Thought I share it here:

Manchester heading for population boom over next decade


Manchester is heading for a MUCH bigger population boom than previously thought, new figures suggest - with 100,000 extra people expected to swell numbers in the next decade.

Town hall analysts forecast the city’s population could hit 625,000 by 2025, a rise of 20pc.

That is considerably more than the Office for National Statistics, whose prediction is around 550,000.

The planning app was submitted last week. I think there was a proposal for this site way back when they were building the green quarter, but never saw the light of day following the 2008 bust. So it appears things are back on.

Giving pride of Place to building up city region...

In March Manchester Place boss Deborah McLaughlin said a plan to build tens of thousands of new homes in the city region was gathering pace. Today, a £300m funding pot integral to achieving that ambition goes live. Alex Bell reports

"We seem to have all the pieces of the jigsaw to be able to create great places and do it at pace.”

That’s the view of Manchester Place chief executive Deborah McLaughlin.

Deborah’s brief is far from simple. But if it was to be simplified, as the spearhead of a major long term project, she is overseeing the creation of 55,000 new homes.

But why?

“We are currently developing around 1,500 homes a year in Manchester, but need to develop more than 3,500 a year just to meet the population growth and demand,” says Deborah, during an interview at Manchester Central Library..

Current Status: Approved

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1661033








Approved!

Demolition of an existing structure needs to ensue first, but once it does this will rise opposite the road from the 24-storey No.1 Spinningfields, creating a bit of a canyon effect down Quay St - which will one day (hopefully) have the mighty 50-storey St John's Place tower bookending it.

Good times

Thank you for your comments DS, as you are aware from the thread Manchester is undergoing what is probably its greatest change since the Industrial revolution, back then of course it was known the world over as "Cottonopolis" Manchester once again is reinventing itself, this time as a 21st Century world class city, the next few years will see even more development and investment...so definitely one to watch !
