8 floors is very disappointing for such a location, but anyway; more offices in CentManc.

Are all four buildings going here, because I initially thought it was going to be two on either side of the car park, but there is something in the way on the other side (pics of that to follow shortly)?

It would be great if the developer and the land owner came to some sort of agreement and built an underground car park so there can actually be an above ground park/green/square

Questions from Lyon

I see many interesting projects in that city and im very exited that it happens outside of London. But is the city center really expanding ? From gmaps it seems to be as small as a gta city no offence.

Is there an underground project for Manchester (or even Birmingham) like the tube or even the pre-metro system in Bruxelles ?

Thank you for your updates btw !

As small as a GTA city I like that.

The city centre has certainly expanded in the last decade or so, and become more dense with offices, hotels and people. It looks to continue expanding in future, many of the projects showcased on here are on the periphery of the city centre, and so these will help push the density further and further out.

There's a sizeable tram and light rail network, the largest in the UK. Unfortunately no underground system, this country's government would never fund such a project outside of London.

Lord Whitby blew £150,000 of public money on a study into whether a Birmingham underground was a practical option. Obvioulsy it would have been ridiculously expensive and would take decades to deliver. Sir Albert revived the idea too

Like VDB said, the government wouldn't fund a project like this outside of London and Manchester.

Trams will surely reach full capacity eventually with growing populations, more people working in our city centres and tourism increasing.

The guys above basically answered correctly. I'd just like to add that 2 other Cities outside of London do have Underground/Metro/Subway systems; and they are Newcastle and Glasgow.

Liverpool also has some sections of 'Underground Trains' but I don't think these can quite be considered in the same category.

Once London's Crossrail is finished, it wouldn't surprise me if another similar project starts in another City. If I had to put money on which City the government would do this in, it would be Manchester. Manchester has a lot going for it at the moment; the Airport Expansion, the large Tram network, the Office Space being built, the first Elected Major outside of London etc etc etc. I personally can see where the wind is blowing and can see Manchester becoming a European powerhouse.

Liverpool & Bristol currently have elected mayors - but not a wider metropolitan mayor, as is the model that is to be introduced into Manchester.

Manchester has a shot, but I'd still put my money on Crossrail 2 happening in line with HS2. There's a ton of political pressure to go beyond the consultation phase, although a smaller Crossrail would be really beneficial for Manchester.

No. 2 St. Peters Square | 12 floors | 54m | 160,000 sqft - Offices...


Via Place North West

An update from today. Lots of earth has been moved and some concrete was being poured into 'the pit' earlier this week - I assume this is going to be basement levels.

VDB, I love what you do, but please stop with the "MIDTOWN", "CIVICA" stuff.
Midtown is in Manhattan between 59th and 23rd St, some would say 14th... and even that's very debatable. Central Manchester has its own district designations. Use them. Please don't take this wrong x
