The temporary 'square' looks decent. The surface is laid with a resin bonded aggregate rather than bog-standard tarmac.

I liked the Ralli Courts buildings that were there before. Shame that they had to go as well as the brown monstrosity on the corner.

"Ministers Woo China With Manchester Office Hub"...

Quote:
"The PM will say that Chinese companies will receive tax breaks by moving to a Manchester enterprise zone, Sky News learns"

David Cameron will on Friday woo Chinese companies with generous tax breaks when they unveil plans for a new property development in Manchester as part of Government efforts to establish a new 'northern powerhouse'.

Sky News understands that the Prime Minister is to announce the creation of a new 'China Zone' within Airport City Manchester during a visit to the North West with President Xi Jinping of China.

The new development will comprise two new office buildings which will be reserved for Chinese companies wanting to relocate there.

Ministers hope that the project will attract Chinese companies wanting to establish a hub in the north-west by offering them exemption from business rates because of its location within the Airport City Enterprise Zone.

It will be the latest in a string of announcements aimed at strengthening trade ties between the UK and China during a week when Mr Xi has been feted by the Government and Royal Family.

This would be one such scheme Quicksilver:

Home / Property / BCEGI selected for major Middlewood Locks project
BDNW: http://www.thebusinessdesk.com/north...s_section=4150

26th October 2015
By Nick Jackson - Deputy Editor

Quote:
SCARBOROUGH Group International has selected Beijing Construction and Engineering Group as its preferred contractor for its 24-acre Middlewood Locks development in Salford.

Chinese constructor and engineering firm BCEGI has been working with Scarborough - owned by the McCabe family - on the design for the detailed planning application for the first phases of the development.

These first phases will comprise the development of about 550 homes, 29,000sq ft of commercial space and extensive new public realm, in the form of canal side footpaths and cycle ways that will connect directly into the city centre.

The application was submitted earlier this month with a planning decision expected in before the end of the year.

This would then enable Scarborough to start on site in the first quarter of 2016.

BCEGI first entered the UK market through an investment in Airport City, Manchester, announced in October 2013.

The company has been actively pursuing further investment opportunities in the UK and in August 2015, announced its most recent investment in St Michael’s, Manchester.

Middlewood Locks received outline planning consent in March 2015 from Salford City Council to deliver a new mixed use community of around 2,000 new homes and up to 750,000 sq ft of commercial development space for mixed commercial uses including offices, hotel, shops, delis, restaurants, a convenience store and gym.

The development is centred on three large basins of the Manchester Bolton and Bury Canal in Salford and is ideally located just a short walk from the central business district and retail amenities of Manchester.

The site has a gross development value exceeding £700m and is expected to create more than 7,000 jobs locally. The scheme is being developed by FairBriar International, a joint venture between Scarborough, Top Spring International Holdings, a Hong Kong-listed real estate developer in the People's Republic of China, and Metro Holdings, a Singapore-listed property development and investment group.

Lee Savage, development director of Scarborough, said: "Middlewood Locks is a unique site with the potential to deliver thousands of new homes, jobs and a first-class business destination. The selection of BCEGI means that we are on track to deliver the first phases of the development and we are confident that this scheme will be transformational for Salford and its wider regeneration activities."

Xing Yan, BCEG International Co managing director, said: “We are delighted to be selected as preferred contractor for Middlewood Locks and have very much enjoyed working alongside the Scarborough team. We are now looking forward to delivering the first phases of development of this significant and strategic regeneration project.”

Salford City Mayor Ian Stewart, said: "This is another exciting development for Salford.

"Salford is growing at an incredible pace and the international investment demonstrates this. We have worked closely together with developers like The Scarborough Group to create new jobs, homes and commercial opportunities and a bring large pieces of unused land back to life."

I think Middlewood locks will take city living in Manchester to a new level. Quick question though as I'm not familiar with this, are there metrolink stations around there?

Not really, Deansgate-Castlefield is the nearest in the city centre and is a good 20 minute walk and the ones near the Quays are even further.

Distance wise you could deffo walk into town. Especially if they keep their promise on pedestrian links - it's a quick hop across the river.

There is definitely potential for a train station or Metro station, the area is surrounded by railways. You could have a station on the Victoria to Liverpool line on the south side of the site, and then the line to Salford Crescent from Victoria (onwards to Bolton and Wigan) marks the north side of the site.

Metrolink have plans to extend to Wigan. If this goes via the current rail alignment (it might go via Chapel St instead) then I can definitely see TfGM pushing for a station off Oldfield Road.

Gino's and Vapiano are the last two restaurant to open who have entrances inside the Corn Exchange and on Exchange Square, with Salvi's and Tampopo the last two restaurants to open with entrances on Exchange Square only.

Plus there are still 4 unit left to let, so the ball is still rolling on who will open in the remaining units at the Corn Exchange. The space where the oculus/void was to be to look down into the basement is rumoured to be a champagne bar, however I do feel it should be left empty as the tables and chairs for all the restaurants do take up a fair amount of space right now.
