It's only just in Salford, if the buildings ever collapsed part of the rubble would probably land in Manchester!

The Cities of Manchester and Salford are going through phenomenal transformations- probably more than any other City in the UK..hence the huge amount of content on these pages....and there`s more to come.

I'd rather see retail, restaurants etc at ground level than townhouses. To expand the city centre which I think would be beneficial for Manchester and other UK cities you need to have public usage type stuff along the street or else there is no reason for anybody other than the residents to walk down there. Once only the residents walk down there it becomes more suburban in atmosphere rather than a real part of the city centre.

This area (Piccadilly Basin) is already quite residential in character anyway - there have been apartments along the canalside here since the early 1980s.

The city centre is expanding in the way you mentioned (retail units, public realm) out towards Ancoats, NOMA, First St and St Johns. I can't see this area ever being part of the "city centre" really simply because it's quite out of the way. The city centre is expanding, just not in this direction really.

that development - especially in the square - reminds me of the Rockefeller Center in NYC. Lovely development!
