Library Walk Link
Monument | Midtown

Cost: £3.5 | Architect: Ian Simpson | Developer: Manchester City Council

Current Status: Complete

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1527077


Controversial because of the amount that the council spent on it during times of "Austerity", but it's interesting none-the-less.

Manchester Victoria Station
Rail station | Midtown

Floors: N/A | Developer: Network Rail

Current Status: Nearing Completion

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post120709341



Pics by Flange:

The development is all but complete now, with only a few finishing touches left to go. It looks amazing, and the main concourse (as you can see, but as always pictures don't really do it justice) is an absolute chasm of space now - it's huge! And it feels light and airy. Good job, and not bad for Manchester's secondary rail station.






The "Soldier's Gate" memorial inside the station, which commemorates the soldiers who passed through this very gate on their way to Europe to fight in World War One, many of whom of course did not return.

Think it's time to move this thread to the Construction projects section.

New Victoria
Masterplan | Midtown

No. of apartments: 475 | Office space: 150,000sqft | Floors: 17 & 22
Developer: Muse

Current status: Pre Planning

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post125803082


Quote:
Developers are looking to capitalise on one of the jewels of the government’s northern powerhouse initiative by bringing forward a new 600,000 sq ft mixed-use station development in Manchester.

A 2.5-acre site owned by Network Rail next to Manchester Victoria is to become the city’s latest regeneration project.

Network Rail and partner Muse Developments are seeking forward funding of up to £150m from investors on the office and residential elements of the scheme, dubbed New Victoria (pictured).

Victoria station is the centrepiece of the region’s forthcoming upgraded rail network, known as the Northern Hub, and the electrification of the Trans-Pennine line. Muse and Network Rail are already undertaking a £45m upgrade of the Grade II listed Victoria station.

The Sheppard Robson masterplan includes a 150,000 sq ft office block – one of the largest in the city – and two residential towers of 17 and 22 storeys comprising 475 flats.

It also includes restaurant and leisure space on the ground floor, public realm improvements and a multi-storey car park. JLL and GVA have been appointed as letting agents and to lead the funding search.

Detailed plans for New Victoria should be submitted before the year-end, with construction expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016 and completion scheduled for 2021.

With floorplates of more than 15,000 sq ft the development is intended to extend the city’s business centre north, in tandem with Co-operative Group’s and Hermes’ NOMA to the east, and English Cities Fund’s New Bailey to the west.

Manchesterís Ďmost wantedí office acquired for £130m...

Quote:
Manchesterís most-wanted office building is set to change hands for a price in excess of £130m.

German pension fund Deka Immobilien is under offer to buy One St Peterís Square, which was developed by a joint venture between Argent and the Greater Manchester Property Venture Fund and completed earlier this year.

The grade-A scheme, built on the site of former 1970s block Elizabeth House, commands one of the cityís highest office rents at £32.50/sq ft and is currently 64% let.

KPMG signed a 15-year pre-let deal back in 2011 and recently moved into the 270,000 sq ft, 13-storey building, while DLA Piper and Addleshaw Goddard will take residence in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

It will not be the first Manchester purchase for Deka, which also acquired Belvedere in Booth Street, home to the Manchester offices of Savills and CBRE, for £40m in 2012.

Savills advised Deka on the purchase of One St Peterís Square, while Bilfinger GVA acted for the vendors.

Dekaís move on One St Peterís comes after PropertyWeek.com revealed on Wednesday that investment management firm AEW Europe is under offer to buy 101 Barbirolli Square from Aberdeen Asset Management at a price just shy of £32m. The building, which Aberdeen bought from Hermes in 2011, had an initial guide price of £25m.

Completed in 1997, the 85,000 sq ft scheme was once considered the most prestigious office address in the city along with its neighbour, 100 Barbirolli Square, which Aberdeen sold to Oaktree Capital Management and Moorfield for £41m in July 2013.

However, with several of the cityís professional services firms that used to populate the two buildings making the move to the in-demand One and Two St Peterís Square, 101 Barbirolli is now considered to be a repositioning or refurbishment opportunity for the buyer.

It is currently home to DLA Piper, but the law firm will move out in 2016 when its lease at One St Peterís Square begins. Professional services firm PwC will also move out in 2017 in favour of new premises at 1 Spinningfields in the city, leaving 101 Barbirolli vacant.

Savills acted for AEW. CBRE acted for Aberdeen Asset Management.
