Incredible, if even 1/4 of these actually happen it will be unprecedented for any city in the UK outside of London (not to mention the exclusion of the mid-rise stuff like 2SPS, XYZ, 101 Greengate etc etc).

Onward and upward for Manchester!

Good good.

Cities should look like cities.
Suburbs should look like suburbs.
Countryside should look like...

Tall buildings offend man who lives in cave?

Please post me your Kevin Mcloud inspired ideas.

I've got no issue with tall buildings that aren't simply featureless glass prongs. All for change as long as it's change which adds to the beauty of the city rather than cynically ignores it in the name of 'progress'.

Yes but without this proposal we are left with a car park and warehouse units.

This is improvement, this is not replacing anything of any merit. Your point is not relevant to this site!

Manchester is building tall all around the edge of the core city.

All apartments at Knight Knox's Bridgewater Point scheme sold out within a matter of hours, so they've now launched Bridgewater Gate, just round the corner.

Apart from the rail viaduct, none of the buildings in this shot were there 10 years ago. If we take away the building in the middle with the white 'sail' on top (Abito), none of the buildings in this shot were there two years ago

Great to see Manchester booming, quick question how are the NIMBY mob in Manchester? In London we seem to have lost the plot with NIMBY groups everywhere denouncing every project as evil as if some Bond Villians lair was being constructed.

Lots of discontent abounds about Manchester losing its character, Adam (there was a fairly silly piece in the local newspaper about us Londonizing this week), but most of the taller buildings planned are on the periphery and in fairly derelict parts of town - replacing car parks etc - so not much even for the likes of me to moan about there. I think any redevelopment around Oxford Road Station is likely to galvanise people (there were plans a year or so that meant demolishing some nice Victorian boozers and the old Corner House building - and a lot of people got very cross - me included - so we'll see if these plans reemerge).
