Thanks for the recap! I like the addition of transport links as it helps show the different clusters of activity within Salford.

Savills Report: The Future of Manchester
December, 2015

Savills website: www.savills.co.uk
Report website: http://www.savills.co.uk/research_ar...41285/197282-0
Report .pdf: http://pdf.euro.savills.co.uk/uk/res...ember-2015.pdf





Summary of points

- Manchester needs at least 3msqft of office space over the next 10 years in order to satisfy demand (I'd have said at least twice that amount is required as a bare minimum to be frank).

- 100,000 new homes need to be built (not sure if this is Manchester City or Greater Manchester).

- More professional jobs have been created in the North West over the last 12 months than in London - most of these jobs are in Manchester.

- 57,000 jobs have been created in Central Manchester since 2011. This is more than double the North West and UK average for job creation.


Out of the top 10 northern local authorities expecting the highest jobs increase, 7 of these are in the Manchester area.

Oxford economics expects that 130,500 jobs will be created in the main 10 northern local authorities for jobs growth. Nearly 40,000 of these jobs (31%) will be created in Manchester City, and 76,500 (59%) will be created in Greater Manchester. The Manchester City Region will account for 78% (102,500) of jobs created in The North to 2025.

[/CENTER]




- Manchester office rents will hit £37psqft by 2017.

- The most expensive Central Manchester postcode is M1 (Piccadilly), where a two bed flat will cost on average £807pm.

- The cheapest Central Manchester postcode is M15 (Hulme), where a two bed flat will cost on average £682pm.




Office Pipelines


- There is currently over 3.5 million sqft office space either Under Construction or in planning in the Core business districts of Spinningfields and Peter's Fields.

- There is currently 3 million sqft of office space in Planning in Salford Quays/MediaCityUK

- There is currently 1.5m sqft of office space Under Construction or in Planning in Salford (New Bailey area).

- There is currently 5,475,000sqft office space either Under Construction or in Planning across all of the City Zone.

- There is currently 10,175,000sqft of office space either Under Construction or in Planning across all of Central Manchester (taking in the 3.5 miles between Salford Quays and Ancoats).




Central Manchester Map

(Bear in mind that Savills also know about schemes which we do not know about - so that 3 million sqft development out at MediaCity ("In Planning") could be something to get very, very excited about...

Damnit! I meant to get rid of that. Think I must've just copied Deansgate-Castlefield's but accidentally left the National Rail symbol

If it's any constellation Cornbrook SHOULD be a National Rail station

If we want to build a 'Northern Powerhouse'..a real 'Northern Powerhouse' then the UK Parliament should move to Manchester.

..that will do more in 5yrs than all the other talk put together in the next 50yrs and build a real, genuine rival to London in every sense,not to mention helping with UK national cohesion.

There is no real reason, apart from tradition why the seat of Government has to be in the Capital city anymore.

Modern transport links and high speed internet communications make the idea redundant in the 21st Century.

The old Labour leader (Milliband) suggested having an "English Senate" with England split up into several different 'states', each with their own devolved parliament. One Labour MP (can't remember his name) jumped on this and suggested the Senate should be located in Manchester.

You could perhaps have Manchester as the capital of England but with London remaining the overall capital of Britain. But I'm not sure how many people would be happy about the idea of Manchester being the capital of England, and that certainly can't be viewed as a way to "balance up the economy" when there are so many other cities in England which would be equally deserving of that status

The Victoria to Exchange Square section of 2CC opened today (Sunday).

The Second City Crossing will eventually run on to St Peter's Square, where it will help alleviate serious capacity constraints in the City Zone and enable trams to run more frequently into the other boroughs/suburbs:

Airport awards key contract for £1bn transformation

DUTCH design and consultancy Arcadis firm, has landed a significant contract on Manchester Airport's 10-year £1bn transformation project.

Arcadis has been appointed by Manchester Airports Group as its sole managed service provider for the project, which will see Terminal 2 made the main and sole airport terminal.

This role gives the consultancy responsibility for the program management of the entire transformation, encompassing program and project controls, commercial, risk, value management and design guardianship as well as supporting MAG as the airport seeks to realize its significant capacity for growth.

Comprising a series of 60 enhancements, the airport's Transformation Program will increase passenger capacity from 20 million to 30 million passengers by 2025 through the expansion and reconfiguration of Terminal 2 to become the airport's primary terminal building, along with further improvements of Terminal 3 to cater for increased demand and an expanding flight schedule.

Arcadis, which did not put a financial value on the contract, said its program and project services team have been a framework supplier of project and commercial Services to MAG since March 2015.

The firm has experience on a number of international aviation projects, ranging from Sao Paulo, Lima, Abu Dhabi, Dublin, Changi, Hong Kong and Marseilles.

Arcadis UK chief executive Alan Brookes said: "With Manchester expected to play a significant role as one of the economic 'powerhouses' in the North of England, investment in infrastructure and transportation are key for the city and vital in terms of helping to accelerate growth potential.

"With major long-term projects of this nature, being able to offer certainty of outcome is integral for everyone involved and, as Arcadis, the fact that we can operate across the entire project lifecycle played a major part in our being awarded the contract."

Brad Miller, programme director at Manchester Airport, added: "We are investing £1bn in the 10 year program which will radically improve the passenger and airline experience at Manchester Airport.

"While we are just at the start of this transformation project, there is already a great sense of excitement about what will be delivered and how. The team and I are delighted to have appointed Arcadis to support us on this journey, as they have clearly demonstrated how they will bring value to the program."

Exchange Square
Tram stop | City Zone


The new station at Exchange Square has also created two new Lines; the I and the H. The I goes to Rochdale every 10 minutes and the H goes to Shaw every 10 minutes. This now gives Shaw and Oldham a service every 5 minutes throughout the day, alleviating capacity constraints on that line.

Eventually, the Second City Crossing will allow trams to run on from Exchange Square to St Peter's Square, where trams will continue South to the Airport.
