Renaker's new proposal has taken the city by storm - the 62 storey at 205m will be Manchester's tallest building.

Construction starts in June the day after they get planning permission apparently

Greetings from the American Manchester!

I'm just wondering, Manchester seems to be booming very intensely right now--is there any particular reason for it? Is it just a lot of pent-up demand finally being built for, is the metro economy doing particularly well, or is this all in anticipation/response to something different altogether?

Hey Aquaticko! Great to finally meet someone from one of our sibling cities!

Manchester boomed quite a bit 10 years ago just before the recession. I think it's a mixture of all of what you said - pent up demand is definitely a contender just because we had a great fall in the supply of apartments during the recession, whereas demand only ceased for a year at most. Developers back then were cautious about investing money in the UK outside London, so now that the economy everywhere is stronger the money has started pouring back in again.

But also with the London property market beginning to overheat/get ridiculous many see Manchester as a second alternative, so that's another source of investment however although property in the city is a guaranteed money maker I think many of us would rather our city not be made into a cash cupboard.

There are other reasons. Manchester lies at the centre of the population cluster which makes up the north of England. There are about 12 million people living a 1h30 drive from the city, and businesses see this as a massive pull. We effectively have the largest talent pool in Europe, so locating a business here is very beneficial because you cover a huge chunk of the UK population.

We've also been busy improving our international reputation, which goes much further than simply vanity, it's possibly the reason developers see us as an alternative to London. We've also been improving our transport networks. Our metro has trebled in size, we're speeding up trains to neighbouring cities and introducing longer, more frequent trains on the suburban trains. Again, businesses like this because it gives them what I like to call "green bling" - as in they benefit when a large percentage of their workforce commutes by "sustainable methods" such as public transport.

Other than that I like to think we're a big, vibrant city where people want to live and do business

Thanks for the info! I kind of figured it was a combination of all those factors, and Manchester is probably one of the pre-eminent "second cities" of the world (along with places like Busan, Osaka, Barcelona, Milan, Melbourne, etc.), so it would indeed make sense to have a second UK base in Manchester, whether as a residence or a place of business.

I have been following Manchester's transit development projects with some interest, mostly because the improvements seem so comprehensive and extensive. Combine that with the amazing boom the city is seeing now, some personal connections (my grandmother grew up in Bradford, and I've been to The North twice before), and being an American who's somewhat tired of being in America, I'll always have the "other" Manchester in my mind!

Thanks Aquaticko,

you should definitely come visit some time - I'd happily take you around. Liverpool is also nearby and that's an equally amazing city with many grand buildings, museums - and is of course home to the Beatles (I would say that this depends upon generation but actually the Beatles are timeless - I love them and I was born in 1995). Together Liverpool and Manchester are worth the trip on their own - but the Lake District, Edinburgh and London are all (relatively) nearby

Decent inner city plot filler proposed yesterday:










How it fits into the surrounding St George's/Disarelle (District-around-Ellesmere St) area. There are lots of developments proposed along this stretch at the moment, all of them very high quality (will probably do a general update for this area soon);
