Re-start on site for Axis

Property Alliance Group has resumed construction on its Axis site in Manchester city centre. Work on a 27-storey residential building begins almost a decade after plans for a tower on the Deansgate Locks plot were first approved.

Contractor Russells Construction has confirmed that it has started enabling works. Concrete drilling equipment and site cabins are now visible on the site.

Axis residential towerPAG and joint venture partner U+I, formerly known as Development Securities, initially began work on an 18-storey Axis office in 2007, with completion scheduled for 2009 before activity stalled.

The partnership were then granted planning permission for a reworked scheme in November 2014, replacing the office with a 27-storey residential building totalling 172 apartments.

At the time that consent was granted, completion was scheduled for autumn 2016.

However, the project suffered from persistent delays, which Property Alliance Group has said were due to negotiations with the Canal & River Trust, changing market pressures and construction material costs.

The development is now due to complete by the end of 2018.

JLL is the residential agent. 5plus is the architect.

To expand on VDB's post above, the Axis site is a tiny plot of land, next to the Rochdale canal and the tram lines approaching Deansgate Castlefield tram stop. It's also quite close to Beetham Tower, so this alongside 10-12 Whitworth Street West across the road (currently going through planning, recommended approve) should form a nice little cluster in future -

Ask/Carillion earmarks Manchester Central plot for £300m project

8 Apr 2016, 11:42

Ask Real Estate and Carillion have bought a 1.74-acre site next to Beetham Tower, and is drawing up plans for a 750,000 sq ft mixed-use scheme designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners.



The former Bauer Millett car showroom site is located next to the Beetham Hilton Tower and Manchester Central, next to the Metrolink tram line which runs between Deansgate-Castlefield and St Peter’s Square. The plot was sold by the family owners of the showroom.

A scheme on the site will be delivered in a partnership between Ask, Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and Manchester Central.

According to Ask and Carillion, early development proposals envisage a mix of uses comprising commercial offices, hotel, retail and leisure, residential and car parking which could total more than 750,000 sq ft to a value of around £300m.

No images of the proposals were available.

Earlier this year, Ask announced that it had sold a majority stake in the business to construction giant Carillion, buying out founding Ask shareholders Andy Dodd, Ken Knott, Simon Bate, and Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall.

John Hughes, managing director of Ask, said: “Our new corporate relationship with Carillion, which was only completed in January, has given us the platform to move quickly to acquire this prime piece of real estate in the city centre. I am looking forward to us working in partnership with MCC, TfGM and Manchester Central and evolving our exciting development proposals before submitting a detailed planning application later this year.”

I'm sure not many of you know about or remember this flythrough?

The flythrough includes the old AXIS office tower proposal. Now change that to the proposed taller residential tower. Also add Cambridge Street and First Street, which aren't shown in the video. Then add Owen Street, which is onsite. The for fun add 10-12 Whitworth Street, and picture the Great Northern Warehouse redevelopment proposal, which includes another tower. Disclaimer. I'm trying to block out the proposed First Street tower in my mind.

Whitworth Street West is going to look really special if all these proposals see the light of day. And you know what, there's a really good chance that will happen in the current and on-going economic, residential, and office climate in Manchester.

One more thing. The 3 towers/blocks next to Beetham are all under Cloud 23. It's obvious isn't it. No building close by shall block the views of the city centre from Cloud 23 and above.(residential) Well done MCC.

The old proposal that never made it passed some renders and a flythrough video. But you can see the potential and impact of the proposal.

Amazing news ! I've always wondered about this and thought it ruined the density and building cohesion in that area, so it's fantastic to see it could be developed on in the coming years. I'll keep my fingers crossed...

Manchester's becoming one of the great cities, not just of britain but of europe.
With Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Leeds and now also Liverpool growing and expanding there is a great resurgence of British cities going on, and this is at the same time as London's continued and increasing success, (the capitol is still booming more than ever). The old idea that we had to choose between either having a great London, and focusing/investing mainly in that city, or having Britain's other cities become more prominent with more investment, was a false choice, we can, and we are, having both, long may it continue.

If you go by the 150m+ definition does that mean the Owen Street's tallest building will be Manchester's 2nd Skyscraper or is any of the other proposals buildings 150+ for Man?
