Approval expected for £1bn Manchester Airport transformation
PNW: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news....mMGAKwo8.dpuf

25 Feb 2016, 11:37

Quote:
Manchester City Council is set to give planning consent to the £1bn upgrade of Manchester Airport, which will see the demolition of Terminal 1, and a 900,000 sq ft extension to Terminal 2.

The Manchester Airport Transformation Programme is aiming to increase capacity from 20 million to 30 million annual passengers by 2025.

The programme is made up of 60 enhancements, including the expansion and reconfiguration of Terminal 2 to become the airport’s main terminal building, along with further improvements of Terminal 3 to cater for increased demand and an expanding flight schedule.

The proposals have been recommended for approval at Manchester City council’s planning committee meeting on 3 March.

The architect is Pascall & Watson, while Arcadis has been appointed project manager.

Plans include:

- The 900,000 sq ft extension to the North West of Terminal 2 to extend passenger processing facilities
- Extension to upper forecourt
- Additional 2,590 car parking spaces in a seven-storey extension to the existing multi-storey car park, alongside a new seven-storey car park for - 4,236 vehicles
- Reconfiguring roads
- Associated landscape works
- Demolition of Terminal 1 and associated multi-storey car park, with a loss of 2,006 car parking spaces
- New landing piers

The airport has three terminals. Terminal One was opened in 1962 and has undergone significant expansion and redevelopment in the intervening years, most recently in 2007 to 2009. Terminal Two Opened in 1993, along with the railway station, and has also undergone some redevelopment. Terminal Three, originally the domestic terminal, was opened in 1989 and benefited from significant investment with a major extension opening in 1998.

The first phase of the Terminal Two transformation is due to start in April 2016 and complete by the end of March 2022.

Starting to rise above what has traditionally been one of the city's more residential areas. No1 Spinningfields is a precursor to the type of developments that will surround this area in the coming years - tall, impressive glass skyscrapers.

I'm gonna set up a timelapse cam out of my back window for the toastrack project. I live like 200 yards away.

Also, re: the airport. When they say 'passenger numbers by 2025' I still think of the distant future. But that's like nine years away. Jesus Christ I'm old.

The Second City Crossing from Victoria to Exchange Square has already opened, now the section to St Peter's Square is in full swing.

Pictures from jrb showing construction in St Peter's Square itself:










We then have the office block at 2 St Peter's Square under construction:

And finally, once the Metrolink works are complete, the square will be completely redeveloped:







Part of the square has already been repaved and redeveloped, giving an idea of what the rest of this vast square will look like when complete.

An application went in last week for two new cafe/restaurants in the arches on the right here:

(Shameless plug of my own Instagram here )







With Albert Square on the other side, this whole section of the city centre will be fricking beautiful in a few year's time

An update on these buildings.

Tower 1 is under construction
Tower 2 has now sold out, will start construction soon
Tower 3 has now launched, expected to sell out before the end of May
Tower 4 will be launched after Tower 3 has sold out.

I'd expect all towers U/C by this time next year.

Whatever it's called, that Trafford Road development still looks like being one of the best looking new blocks around.

I'm warming to Affinity. Could have some decent street-level interaction along the canal.
