Eye of the beholder is the greatest gift you could give to an developer. That expression allows any developer to justify any high rise crap they may want to throw-up in a city.

Apologies if this has already been posted, but I Googled it under Oxygen Tower - skyscrapercity - Manchester, and nothing came up.

Oxygen Tower Manchester - Iconic, Tallest Residential Tower in Manchester City

Located within a highly accessible location in close proximity to Manchester Piccadilly Station, the Northern Quarter and the main commercial core of the city centre, Oxygen is an iconic 31 storey residential tower and a landmark for a world-class city. Comprising 343 stylish apartments, eight townhouses, leisure and amenity facilities and sky gardens, Oxygen will be a beacon on Manchester’s skyline.

Oxygen Tower Manchester is unique. It's a vertical village. Family town houses engage the street. Above the town houses sit the amenity deck with swimming pool and spa, gym and community hall. Above the amenity deck are apartments to live with views across the City and towards the Peak District National Park. The town houses and apartments have full height window and balconies allowing the generous internal layout to be flooded with natural daylight.

The south west corner of Oxygen Manchester has been designed to accommodate a stepped allotment terrance. Grow your vegetables then nip in the pool for a soak. Under the allotments we have incorporated a coffee shop to get your morning fix.

Oxygen Tower steps up from 8 to 14 and up to 31 storeys. Roof gardens with party rooms to rent are situated on level 9 and 15. The roof gardens face the City and offer unrivalled views and sunsets.

Generous storage and parking provision allow Oxygen Tower Manchester to fit your lifestyle. 24 hour concierge and support from the on-site Oxygen team will be at hand.

It'll be months to years yet, the building hasn't even submitted a planning application. It's hot off the press!

It definitely is in-between Store street and Millbank street, but still my awful sense of direction leads me to question myself. I stupidly left this one out which has a street sign on -

The retail park just shut Mothercare, leaving the right hand side along with Argos empty which is where Sainsburys was supposed to go. Any ideas on what is going on?

(fracking windows 10 and onedrive is fracking me senseless, two thousand options over 500 different screens, all my deletes and edits and folder sorting gone so am going to be behind for a bit).

I really might kill microsoft. i have a 95Mb dl AND ul connection and it is still doing the stupidest things. I have to redo the last few days photos and there are over 1000 of them.

"LCCC gets consent for Hilton hotel"...

Quote:
The development of a 150-bedroom hotel at Lancashire County Cricket Club operated by Hilton Garden Inn has been approved by Trafford Council.

LCCC will now begin a tender process to find a contractor for the project.

The four-star hotel at the corner of Brian Statham Way and Talbot Road would replace the current 68-bedroom hotel at the club’s Emirates Old Trafford site.

The architect on the scheme is Glasgow-based Ica.

The hotel will include a café, ticket office and pop-up bar. The planning application also seeks approval for external alterations to the rear of the ‘A’ viewing stand.

The total cost of the hotel redevelopment is expected to be in the region of £12m.

The Greater Manchester Combined Authority agreed to provide a £5m loan to Lancashire County Cricket Club from the Greater Manchester Growth and Growing Places funds earlier this year, with match funding secured from Trafford Council. The club also raised £3m through a retail bond launch.

The planning application was submitted by Deloitte.

I'm waiting for the lawsuit that MS will pre-empt with Win 10.1 that puts all the settings and privacy options together.

Does anyone know if these sites are going to be used for anything? I thought BUPA was building something but I think they are just renting something over the bridge. I googled but got nowhere.
