A planning application has been submitted to Salford City Council for another tall building - this time a 44 storey/130m resi tower. Norton Court at 36 floors will start rising soon to the right of Exchange Court in the photo below, and there'll be a new park to the left, to sit and admire all the 'scrapers

Has anyone got any info regarding Manchester's proposed "High line?" I saw somewhere that the stretch running from Potato Wharf through to MOSI, is being considered, though I have a feeling it has been considered for sometime?

I feel that Manchester could be overheated with all these rest towers the same way as London now. I know that many investors switch to Manchester about year ago but margins are going down in Manchester as well.

Nevertheless, impressive staff going on.

Are you referring to St John's?

No, I was a fool. A mate on Facebook posted a BBC link and it seems neither of us checked the date, 2012! Shame though, would be great!

As part of the £1bn campus redevelopment, Manchester University will be creating a new park by closing and pedestrianising road which currently looks like this:




Much needed, and should focus a bit of attention on the University's main building:

Not at the moment, but the market will begin to soften once some of them deliver. Even so, there's so much pent-up demand for housing from non-foreign investor sources that I don't see it having a huge dent until the overall economy peaks.

Piccadilly Station Redevelopment | Piccadilly
Mainline station | City Zone

New platforms: 8 | Cost: £1.6bn | Modes introduced: High Speed Rail (2) and High Speed Rail (3)

Current status: Pre-Planning

Nearest transport: Piccadilly

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post131403974







The Chancellor has announced funding for the £1.6bn redevelopment of Piccadilly station, including:

- Moving Chorlton St coach station to the station (and closing Chorlton St).
- Introducing retail in the undercroft, underneath the station (opening it all up)
- Moving Metrolink to the north of the station
- Building a new underground link for HS3 to run to Leeds through Manchester
- Building a new "Grand Arcade" to rival Kings Cross-St Pancras linking the current station with the new HS2 station which will be to the north (above Sheffield St).
- Getting the station ready for HS2's arrival

HS2 arriving ~2032 is the final piece of the jigsaw apparently, meaning we can expect most of this to happen "within the next decade".

More details and better renders to be released soon.
