My poor attempt at a future skyline from Beetham Tower!

It's a shame the photo isn't a bit wider to fit in St John's and Noma (or if anyone would be so nice to give me such a photo )

Left to right - Astley and Byrom House - No1 Spinningfields - Chapel Wharf - Norton Court - One Greengate - Citysuits - 101 Embankment



If there are any other projects I've missed out let me know!

How far we've come

Would actually love to see sunlight tower be brought back from the dead, and it would duly sit comfortably with other towers.

the open space at Victoria Station is fantastic! Especially on a sunny day. Great updates guys. I can't wait to see Manchester's skyline come together!

This obviously has the two cranes at Wilburn Street Basin, but if you zoom you can just see the two cranes at XYZ, and also the cranes at One Greengate, CitySuites and 101 Embankment. At least I think that's what they are.

I managed to squeeze in Cambridge Street in this one, no idea how to get all 300 cranes in one photo though.

It's disgusting and a simple decent paint job, ie not entirely white, would do wonders for the whole area. There is a similar building near the south entrance to the triangle by the macdonalds hotel and piccadilly station, that needs work done too as it is a horrible sight for visitors to see on arrival.
