That Circle Square is jaw dropping. Looks like it will suit the area perfect too with the colour.

More regional than just Manchester, but Osborne's budget includes a further push for HS3:

Quote:
In a major boost for the Northern Powerhouse, the subject of a detailed report from the NIC today, there will be £300m in the Chancellor’s Budget tomorrow for the following projects:
  • Taking forward HS3 between Leeds and Manchester with £60m to develop detailed plans to reduce journey times towards 30 minutes, as well as plans for improving links between the North’s other major cities.
  • Exploring options for a Trans-Pennine tunnel between Sheffield and Manchester with £75m to develop plans, as well as looking at options to enhance the A66, A69 and the north-west quadrant of the M60.
  • Delivering significant improvements to roads with £161m for Highways England to accelerate upgrades to the M62 between junction 10-12 Warrington to Eccles and junction 20-25 Rochdale to Brighouse.

I cannot wait to see more detailed plans for Piccadilly station. The £1.6 billion budget sounds huge. Didn't New Street station in Birmingham cost £550m? How much did Kings Cross/St Pancras cost?

Circle square has got to be one of the best projects in Manchester. Very impressive scalewise and it definitely expands the city centre in the best possible way. I used to walk down Oxford Road quite often in the summer and I definitely did not get the feeling that it was a major avenue leading to the city centre. But things are about to change

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.

the statement of a second city, methinks.

Some of the latest proposals to come out of Manchester at MIPIM, originally posted by AJD1984. These are Central Village, a new office building proposal in the new St John's area, and The Skirt in Spinningfields -

Also proposed to replace the Oast House in Spinningfields - Bar, Restaurants and Cinema

Some amazing projects ongoing in Manchester at the moment, aswell as the ones proposed.

This is a city heading in the right direction.
