I think Manchester is at the stage where it still needs the development, AndyM. As others have said the city centre is surrounded still by car parks and derelict/unused land which everybody in the city recognises needs to be filled in. The difference here is that London has very little of this land and is a step ahead of Manchester in that many will argue London is already good/developed and doesn't necessarily need to develop more.

There is an argument that we're losing our identity though, and recently quite a few red brick buildings (which are characteristically Mancunian) have been demolished to make way for shiny new buildings. Where this happens the locals protest because of the loss of beautiful/old buildings.

There is also the argument that many new buildings in Manchester are now being funded by Russians/Far Easterners - worryingly indicating that we're becoming a cash haven like London. What the Mancunian authorities need to avoid is providing apartments for rich people rather than locals, as happens in London.

But generally the attitude towards development in Manchester is, for the time being, positive because most people here recognise that it needs to occur.

Is there any community in the world that's more of an echochamber than in architecture?

Stats

As you know I do these every 3 months.

Here are the links to a few other Development Updates I've done over the past year or so:

- The number of completed projects (on which construction has stopped, including internal works, and the building or structure is occupied/open) has increased from 4 in November 2015 to 14 now.

- The number of projects under construction (on which construction activity has begun, in the form of diggers, of drills or of cranes etc) has decreased again by -4, from 74 to 70. This is the 4th consecutive fall in construction activity, however the falls have been small - overall activity has decreased from 77 projects U/C in May 2015 to 70 now. Hopefully with all the new planning applications we're seeing come online we'll see a spike in activity soon.

- The number of projects which are 'Shovel Ready' (on which construction has a high chance of beginning by the next Update in three months time) has increased: from 23 in November to 26 now.

- The number of projects which have been approved has raced upwards after waves and waves of planning meetings in both Manchester & Salford. It now stands at 50, up from 36 in November.

- Projects holding a planning application which hasn't yet been approved stands at 47, down from 60 in November. This is due to a large number of approvals.

- The number of "Red" projects (those which are masterplans or visions without a planning application, not including framework applications) has increased from 33 to 42 now. This is mainly due to a wave of new proposals around MediaCityUK and Owen St.

The graph below shows how U/C, planning applications and others have changed over time. Notice how we're beginning to get "planning app inflation". Lots of planning applications are going in but the construction industry lags behind still. This can indicate a number of things: 1) there's a lack of construction resources stopping projects from rising out of the ground. This is a known problem in the UK at the moment... 2) there's still a post-recession hangover of low confidence in developers to deliver schemes....3) we may see an enormous spike in construction activity over the next year.







It's been a very exciting 3 months yet again. However this 3 months has differentiated itself from the other quarters of this recovery/post-recession period by being what we can define as an era of tall buildings. Skyscraper proposals defined Manchester pre-recession, we can only hope that they get built this time round.

Renaker have now made the bold move of proposing what will be Manchester's tallest building if built. Number 1 Owen St will reach 200.5m into the sky, the first regional UK skyscraper to stretch above 200m (even if it is a shy peek above 200m at best!) There will also be several 130m+ buildings surrounding it. We also found out that the Great Northern Warehouse will be redeveloped with a Will Alsop-designed skyscraper sitting alongside it.

At MediaCity, we've seen visuals of "Phase 2" which will be mainly apartment-based, incorporating over 600 new homes in total. Nearby, TH Real Estate lodged plans for up to 800 apartments at Waterfront Quay as part of their Pier 7 scheme. Recently Select Properties and Ask released plans for Embankment West; 694 apartments in buildings up to 32 stories high.

We also saw plans released for Urban & Civic's Princess/Whitworth Corner which gained a planning application this quarter, alongside the 31-storey Oxygen Tower which will provide 343 apartments behind Piccadilly.

It's been a bumper month for office space, with nearly 600,000sqft of office space being approved by Manchester City Council over Lincoln House and 2 & 3 Angel Square, while the City also approved the University's redevelopment of the Owen's Park campus.

Adelphi Wharf, phase 1 of Bruntwood's "Circle Square" project on the old BBC site off Oxford Rd and the Ordsall Chord have all started construction this quarter, however overall construction activity decreased yet again. There needs to be a real push to get schemes which have planning approval starting construction as there's clearly a block in the system at the moment, whatever it may be.

Apartments

Another incredible three months for apartments.

- There are currently 1,901 apartments U/C in the City Centre
- There are currently 1,592 apartments U/C in Central Salford
- There are currently 885 apartments U/C in Salford Quays
- There are currently 146 apartments U/C in Hulme
TOTAL U/C: 4,095


- There are currently 6,127 apartments with Planning Applications OR U/C in the City Centre
- There are currently 6,245 apartments with Planning Applications OR U/C in Central Salford
- There are currently 3,064 apartments with Planning Applications OR U/C in Salford Quays
- There are currently 983 apartments with Planning Applications OR U/C in Hulme
TOTAL: 19,614


The graph below shows number of apartments U/C or holding planning apps over time.

Although the City Zone currently has the most U/C, there are more apartments holding planning apps in Central Salford which indicates that the focus for apartment construction in the future will be here. There's been a spike in apartments holding planning applications in Salford Quays in the past few months as a result of Pier 7 at Waterfront Quay, which will provide up to 800 apartments here. As Central Manchester and Central Salford heat up, Salford Quays too is beginning to warm, although still lags behind its neighbours in terms of apartments U/C. This will change in the near future with X1's enormous new scheme at MediaCityUK which will provide over 1,000 new apartments (phase 1 is now U/C). However Salford Quays is unlikely to catch up with the city centre/Salford Central in the foreseeable future as they each have over 4,000 apartments in planning.

Offices

- There is currently 1,085,000sqft of office space U/C in Central Salford and Central Manchester
- There is currently 60,000sqft of office space U/C at Salford Quays

- 1,260,200sqft of office space is currently holding a planning application in Central Salford and Central Manchester
- 145,000sqft of office space is currently holding a planning application in Salford Quays

TOTAL PIPELNE: 2,520,200sqft

Apartment Heat Maps

I wanted to explore which areas of the city were experiencing the highest activity in terms of new apartments U/C and proposed and see whether this correlated with average property prices in those areas and/or increases in property prices.

The map below shows apartments U/C in each district of the city.

The North western fringe (Salford through to Victoria) is clearly seeing the highest amount of apartments U/C at the moment. In Victoria, the numbers are totally dominated by the Angelgate scheme, which is providing 434 apartments to this area. However in Central Salford and Greengate, construction is dominated by several megaschemes: Renaker at Two Greengate, City Suites and Renaker at Wilburn St.







The map below shows all apartments - those U/C, those approved, those holding planning applications AND those not holding planning applications (IF number of apartments is specified, with some schemes it simply states that "over 3,000 apartments will be provided", these vague schemes are simply not counted.

As with U/C, Central Salford and Greengate are still booming into the forseeable future. Many apartments in Central Salford will be provided by Middlewood Locks and Adelphi Wharf as well as smaller schemes, whilst in Greengate promises of 1,190 apartments along Trinity Way, Norton Court as well as rumours of a Renaker "One Greengate" project (to be revealed on Thursday) mean Greengate will remain a hive for apartment activity into the future.

The difference between the U/C and pipeline maps pops up in Castlefield/Peterloo. A low amount of construction is evident here at the moment, however into the future this area is promised a lot of major projects including Allied London's Trinity Fields, providing 3,000 apartments in several utopian skyscrapers around the river and Trinity Way, St John's at the old Granada site and Renaker at Owen St. This area will be home to all of Manchester's tallest buildings and is an area to watch into the future.

Similarly Ordsall, which currently has 0 apartments U/C has 774 proposed for it. This area, sandwiched between Salford Quays, the city centre, Central Salford, Middlewood Locks, Cornbrook and Hulme has immense potential and, coupled with cheap property prices, will be another area to watch in the coming years.








In order to correctly assess which areas have potential into the future it's important to study property prices.

The map below details how Spinningfields and Castlefield/Peterloo are by far the city's most expensive property hotspots - each averaging over £1m according to Zoopla's ZED index. Piccadilly too will soon top £200,000 average prices, meaning the "traditional" city centre will all see prices of over £0.2 million.

Developers are currently concentrating on Central Salford and Greengate due to its astoundingly low property prices. However, as Greengate (which had a similar price to the rest of Salford just 2 years ago) has shown, this won't last for long.








Finally, the below map is almost an invert of the previous (average property prices) map. This one shows property price increases in the year to Jan 30, 2016.

Central Salford and Ordsall, which have the lowest property prices of the entire city, are the areas which are becoming more expensive the fastest - with 7.6% increases across the M3 postcode in the previous 12 months. This is another reason that Ordsall is one to watch - an area which has low property prices, an unbeatable location, gigantic yields and very little proposals for apartments unlike her neighbours.







- The average price for a property across all Central Manchester districts at the end of January 2016 was £346,270.

- Excluding the enormous skewing effect that M2 (Spinningfields & Castlefield have), this comes to £156,728.

- The average increase in property price across all CentManc districts comes to 5.8%

- Projecting into the future this means that the average price for a property in January 2017 will be £165,818 with currently cheap districts such as Central Salford and Ordsall catching up to the rest.

Tall buildings

I don't think Manchester needs any introduction on tall proposals after the quarter we've had. An astounding number of new proposals for 100m+ buildings arguably takes us up to the total we had pre-recession. Here they all are, listed categorically in terms of height.

Firstly, here are the current tallest buildings:

1) Beetham (169m)
2) CIS (118m)
3) City Tower (107m)
4) New Wakefield St (106m)
5) Arndale Tower (90m)
6) Town Hall (87m)
7) Manchester One/Portland Tower (80m)
8) CJC (80m)
9) 3 Hardman St (75m)
Source: Wikipedia




Next, here are the tallest buildings after all the projects which are currently U/C or at shovel ready have completed (if you want, the "Near Future" talls):

1) Beetham (169m)
2) CIS (118m)
3) City Tower (107m)
4) New Wakefield St (106m)
5) Angel Gardens (106m)
6) No. 1 Spinningfields (92m)
7) Arndale Tower (90m)
8) One Greengate (88m)
9) Town Hall (87m)
10) X1 MediaCity (86m)
11) Cambridge St (83m)
12) Water St (82m)
13) Manchester One/Portland Tower (80m)
14) CJC (80m)
15) 3 Hardman St (75m)




Next, here are Manchester's talls after all the proposals and U/C projects have completed. 2022 perhaps? Or "Far Future"

1) Great Jackson 1 (201.5m)
2) Beetham (169m)
3) St John’s Place (165m)
4) Great Jackson 2 (158m)
5) Trinity Fields 1 (152m)
6) Great Jackson 3 (141m)
7) St John’s Tower 2 (132m)
8) River St Tower (125m)
9) Great Jackson 4 (122m)
10) CIS (118m)
11) 10-12 Whitworth St (117m)
12) Norton Court (110.3m)
13) St John’s Tower 3 (109m)
14) City Tower (107m)
15) New Wakefield St (106m)
16) Angel Gardens (106m)
17) Oxygen Tower (103m)
18) Trinity Fields 2 (100m)
19) Trinity Fields 3 (96m)
20) Axis (93m)
21) Middlewood Locks Plot I (93m)
22) No. 1 Spinningfields (92m)
23) Arndale Tower (90m)
24) One Greengate (88m)
25) Town Hall (87m)
26) X1 MediaCity (86m)
27) Cambridge St (83m)
28) Trinity Fields 4 (83m)
29) St John’s Tower 4 (83m)
30) St John’s Tower 5 (83m)
31) Water St (82m)
32) Manchester One/Portland Tower (80m)
33) CJC (80m)
34) Astley & Byrom House (77m)
35) 3 Hardman St (75m)

Good to see there's lots of growth outside London as well. Manchester is a top city as well.

Thought you might be interested in this little bit of research I did.

Median monthly rent for studio and 1-bedroom apartments around the train stations and tram stops of Greater Manchester. Prices taken from rightmove.co.uk today and yesterday.

No problem at all, repost wherever you like. I did have to cheat a bit in a few areas, it's very difficult to find any small apartments in a few areas like Wythenshawe which is a sea of 2 and 3 bed council houses and also in some of the more rural parts right on the outskirts, so the boundaries for the searches had to be expanded more than in other places, but it gives a good idea of relative prices around GM I think.

Next up I'll do the same but for buying 3-bed properties, houses or apartments. There should be plenty of them everywhere I think so it should give a good guide.

London is a different world in terms of housing prices compared with the rest of the UK, but then an average worker in London does take home something like £500-£600 per month more after tax than a typical worker in Greater Manchester or other provincial cities so out does balance out the higher costs somewhat.

Manchester looks ambitious

But it is said that it's a boring city. Is it false ?

It's very false! Check out Paul 62's photos in the urban showcase forum - he chronicles life here very nicely (and there is loads of life here!)
