Which is EXACTLY what I said. I suggested an ice rink in Winter but I was seemingly shot down by the other Manc forum members

These last few days have been very exciting, can really feel the momentum building across Manchester recently.

Current status: Pre planning

Nearest transport: MediaCityUK and Broadway

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post129354723









Plot C1/D1

Apartments: 476
Floors: 20x2
Architect: AHR

Plot C4

Quote:
Plot C4 will see flats, office studios and live/work space surrounding a contemporary garden square, with rooftop gardens. The public space will face the Orange building to the south, linking the new to the existing plots.








Plot C5

Architect: Gillespies/Jeffrey Bell

Quote:
Plot C5 will be a focal point and destination public space, with a market-style, street food offering, dining areas and flexible event space. Surrounded by cafes and restaurants and with an easy pedestrian connection to the Metrolink stop, it will be a community hub with character.






Plot D5

Architect: 5Plus

Quote:
The primarily residential building proposed for Plot D5 cleverly integrates podium parking for residents, with retail and leisure space on the ground floor, beneath a stepped sky garden with a gradual transition from public to private space. This stepped garden will face out towards the market and event space of Plot C5, helping to bind together the different elements of the next phase of MediaCityUK.

I really hope that some of the many failings of Media City Phase 1 are not repeated in phase 2. They need to make a place people will REALLY want to spend time in - not another shiny collection of windswept spaces, bleak high rises and boring street life. From the looks of it, this is not better

I really liked the big diagonal boulevard that was part of the older Oxford Road plan but that park might end up being even better.

I like the look of the new MCUK, I think its a good idea for Manchester to develop a second 'centre' as I feel currently its mono-centralised structure impedes its progress as a truly big/international city. It seems to me that the worlds most well known cities all have five-ten distinct districts that could all lay claim to be a 'centre' of the city.

Imho it's not a matter of being a world class city but an issue that concern most of uk and us big cities... in France for example, second tier cities are not that big but they have dense and diversified city centres. They can appear bigger than they actually are... or at least bigger than same scale uk cities. Just Google map it : Marseille / Lille / Lyon / Grenoble / Nice and even Nantes or Rennes. In Italy or Spain it's even more impressive...

It's probably the antithesis of what I like...but it's a joy wandering around Spinningfields at night (and it was thriving). That temporary bar (on the lawns) helps the area - any info (I may have missed) on whether it's staying one No.1 is built?

I think this mingling of modern and historic is what Manchester does best architecturally; look at the view of Beetham from Castlefield for example. This big shiny beast of an office building will add to it!

Renaker dusts off West plans for Owen Street
PNW: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news....qNtgKtmo.dpuf

6 Jan 2016, 10:12
Jessica Middleton-Pugh


Quote:
CQ Investments, a subsidiary of Renaker, is putting together plans to build 1,400 apartments across four “landmark buildings” designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners, on a car park site to the South of Manchester city centre.

According to a leaflet promoting a consultation event taking place next week, the plans echo those previously proposed for Owen Street by Donal Mulryan’s West Properties, approved in 2008.

Also designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners, then Ian Simpson Architects, the project featured five towers of between 14 and 49-storeys, made up of 1,200 apartments, a hotel and offices. However, after West Properties’ profits fell during the recession, the site was bought by Morgan Stanley in 2011 as part of the disposal of £216m of Mulryan’s assets by the Irish Government’s National Asset Management Agency.

In 2015, Owen Street was sold alongside two other prominent former West assets in Manchester, the Origin site on Princess Street and the Renaissance Hotel in Deansgate. London developer Urban & Civic bought the Princess Street and Deansgate assets.

Under Renaker’s plans, which are to be put on display next week as part of a pre-planning application consultation, Owen Street will feature four residential buildings made up of 1,400 flats, supported by an amenity building which will include a tennis court, swimming pool, cinema, gym, basement parking, cafes and restaurants. The properties will be surrounded by 95,000 sq ft of public realm.

According to the consultation invite, the development aims to be “of the highest architectural quality”.

The consultation will take place on 13 January at the GIA office, 2 Commercial Street, M15 4RQ, between 3pm and 7pm.

Deloitte is advising on the planning application.

Renaker was unavailable for comment when contacted by Place North West.

That render was from the 2008 scheme; the new scheme is likely to be quite different. For a start there are a different number of towers, apartments and a configured layout from what we have gathered so far. Let's hope it's Beetham-esque
