Subject to obtaining the Transport and Works Act Order once the Public Inquiry is complete, it is hoped to start construction next year probably late summer early autumn. The plan is for it to be ready Winter 2019/20.

"Manchester Arena close to naming deal"...

Quote:
A new sponsor for the 21,000-seater Manchester Arena is expected to be announced in the coming weeks, with South Korean electronics giant LG understood to be the frontrunner.

The arena, which joins on to Victoria Station, has not been sponsored since Phones 4u went into administration at the end of 2014. Manchester Evening News previously held the naming rights for 13 years from 1998 until 2011.

Alongside LG, restaurant company Pizza Express has also been rumoured as a potential sponsor.

Securing the naming rights for the arena would equate to a multi-million pound deal.

Manchester Arena is operated by SMG Europe on behalf of owner Mansford Real Estate. The property includes a 128,000 sq ft office and a multi-storey car park.

All parties were unavailable to comment at the time of publication

MOAF: City centre take-up surpasses 1m sq ft
PNW: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news...sses-1m-sq-ft/

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Quote:
The Manchester Office Agents Forum have calculated yet another robust performance in quarter three which closely resembles the market’s performance in the previous quarter with 741,926 sq ft transacted within the Greater Manchester and Warrington markets in the past three months.

Manchester city centre has experienced yet another strong quarter with approximately 373,477sq ft transacted for Q3 which provides a year to date total of 1,052,154 sq ft, indicating that 2015 will be a record year.

Notable transactions for the city centre during the last quarter include Global Radio 16,669 sq ft, Shoosmiths 32,000 sq ft, NCC Group 60,246 sq ft all acquiring space in XYZ Building in Spinningfields, and Gazprom taking 51,200 sq ft at First Street.


City Centre
Q1: 318,848sqft
Q2: 359,829sqft
Q3: 373,477sqft

South Manchester
Q1: 127,109sqft
Q2: 167,222sqft
Q3: 152,243sqft

Salford Quays
Q1: 288,574sqft
Q2: 148,069sqft
Q3: 129,669sqft

Warrington
Q1: 42,405sqft
Q2: 100,879sqft
Q3: 86,537sqft



Year to date total in Manchester is 1,052,154 sq ft, in South Manchester 446,574 sq ft, in Salford Quays 513,837 sq ft, and in Warrington 229,821 sq ft.

Steve Brittle, senior associate at Matthews & Goodman and spokesman for MOAF, said: “The Q3 figures are extremely encouraging for the Greater Manchester region. The level of active requirements in Manchester remains healthy, supported by both local and national demand. Akin to the last year, the business and consumer services sectors have been the most active but we have also seen a notable significant increase in requirements from the legal sector.

“The prospect of ‘Northshoring’ will become more evident as occupiers seek to address increasing costs of occupation. This has already been demonstrated by the arrival of a well known legal firm in their search for 100,000 sq ft in Manchester. Further moves north are anticipated by Financial, Professional Services and the Public Sector in an attempt to decant from an overheating London base.

The imbalance of demand over supply in Manchester city centre has been well documented. With this imbalance and scarcity of prime stock it is likely to push headlines rents in the city centre up by the end of the year.

As a consequence six new build schemes including One New Bailey Street, the XYZ Building, One Spinningfields, Embankment and No.2 St Peter’s Square are set to deliver much needed additional Grade A space between 2016 and 2018.

The South Manchester headlines were stolen by Syngenta taking 32,330 sq ft at The Towers Didsbury and Avecto taking 29,000 sq ft at Trident.

Salford Quays continues to perform well this year with MWH acquiring 25,294 sq ft at The Soapworks, Hamburg Sud 17,800 sq ft at Metro and Travel Councillors 28,500 sq ft at Venus. The Salford Quays area has benefited from occupiers seeking attractive, well connected and cost effective property solutions as a viable alternative to the city centre market where rental levels continue to rise.”

MOAF members includes BE Group, Bilfinger GVA, CBRE, Canning O’Neill, Colliers International, Cushman & Wakefield, DTZ, Deloitte, Edwards & Co, Hallams Commerical, JLL, Knight Frank, Lambert Smith Hampton, Matthews & Goodman, OBI Property, Savills, TSG Property, WHR Property Consultants and Williams Commercial.

Good morning, Manchester!

Starting from the left and going right, we can see the 31-storey One Greengate cranes, with City Suites next to it, the two cranes poking up at the XYZ Building in Spinningfields, and the two Cambridge St towers rising just to the left of Beetham (far right)

Mark Whitby's objections to the Ordsall Chord have been lifted and the project has been given the go-ahead by the High Court.

Quote:
The controversial Ordsall Chord linking Piccadilly and Victoria stations has been given the go-ahead by the High Court.

Mark Whitby, a former president of the Institution of Civil Engineers, mounted a judicial review challenging the government planning inspector's original ruling that backed the £85m plan.

Mr Whitby's legal team argued at the the Royal Courts of Justice that he decision-making process behind the route - which will cut through listed heritage buildings marking the birth of modern railway 185 years ago - was flawed.
There are 30 'heritage assets' standing along its route through Ordsall, including three Grade 1 listed buildings.

Objections to the scheme focused on the former Liverpool Road station, which was part of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway, the first passenger railway in the world.

The station, the house in which the station master once lived and a warehouse building dating to 1830 are all Grade 1 listed and sites of pilgrimage for railway buffs.

Construction of the new 340 metre-long elevated line will involve demolition of the Girder Bridge and the Cast Iron Bridge.

Historic England and others fought the scheme and government planning inspector, Brendan Lyons, recognised the substantial harm it would cause to the heritage assets.

But following a 13-day public inquiry, Mr Lyons decided that the dramatic public benefits of the new railway outweighed the objections.

Mr Whitby, a former president of the Institution of Civil Engineers said that running the new line further to the west, across Middlewood Locks, would cause far less damage to the historic buildings.
Judge Mrs Justice Lang, today dashed his hopes when she said she could find no flaw in Mr Lyons' conclusions.

In his decision, the inspector had rejected the alternative route because of its adverse impact on regeneration proposals for Middlewood Locks.
But Mr Whitby argued that not enough account had been taken of the serious harm that would be caused to the heritage assets.

Dismissing his challenge, however, the judge said Mr Lyons had clearly given 'considerable weight and importance' to the desirability of preserving them.
Paying tribute to the inspector's 'detailed and careful'" report, she said he had correctly applied planning policies and given clear reasons for his decision.

Mrs Justice Lang said: "I acknowledge that these were controversial decisions, with which Mr Whitby, Historic England and no doubt many others disagree".

However, she said it was for the inspector to decide on the merits of the new railway and he had made no error of law.

This means the North of England's "missing link" can now be filled in, inbetween Victoria and Piccadilly:

MANCHESTER will be the last leg of Chinese President Xi Jinpin's state visit to the UK next week.

With Anglo-Chinese trade and investment firmly on the agenda of David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne, there will be high hopes in Downing Street, and regionally too, that there will be some exciting news for Greater Manchester and the North West.
