The decision date for planning for Owen Street is in July, but with the track record of Renaker / Simpson Haugh Architects in Manchester, the fact this fits in perfectly with the council backed masterplan for the area and the derelict nature of the site I can't see them having much of a problem.

Because the date is after the EU referendum however, the biggest threat to this development (along with all the other developments going on pre-construction actually) is a BREXIT vote.

Manchester's Future Skyline

I was commissioned by Manchester Confidential to do an updated version of Manchester's future skyline, and here it is!

The article: http://www.manchesterconfidential.co...future-skyline

Map of all tall buildings featured:







From Ordsall:






From Exchange Quay:






Hulme:






From the rail line to Liverpool:







From Salford University:






From M602/St James's Park:






From Salford Crescent:






Cheetham Hill:






From Greengate:






From Broughton:







Riding along the Ordsall Chord - as thousands of northerners will every day - will certainly be one of Britain's most striking journeys:






From Princess Road, Moss Side:








From Hulme (I think this is my favourite):






From Moss Side again:







From Cornbrook:






Castlefield:







Priscilla QOTD's view is also featured

Judging by the imagines it looks like, unlike other city with the tall building in the centre. It looks like they will surround the city in Man.

Yep, council policy

Manchester's street plan is also in a "V" shape, with the Owen St cluster placed at the tip of the V. This means that there should be some pretty amazing views of this cluster (the tallest) down many of Manchester's main streets.

Having skyscrapers circling the city centre will mean that you'll be able to see them down most of the city's streets. This should make the city feel more "enclosed" than it currently does, and of course creating some pretty dramatic urban scenes.

As for your "The skyline that results" comment, lol, the skyline that results is not a skyline, thats tge problem. How great would Manchester look if all its tall buildings were clustered around the beetham.
We could have the best of both worlds, a preserved historic core and attractive modern skyline, instead we have the worst of both worlds, a compromised historic core and sparse incoherent skyline
fair enough, maybe I misunderstood. I do actually agree with clustering, rather than having towers all over the place.

Update.

Hopefully we'll get some other news on Trinity Island and some new CGI's?



No updates yet on the Trinity Islands holding page.

The number of completed projects (on which construction has stopped, including internal works, and the building or structure is occupied/open) has decreased from 14 in February 2016 to 6 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 increased from 70 to 77.

- 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 remained the same at 26, this is despite 7 projects moving up into the "Under Construction" category - indicating that the pipeline flow is healthy (you really do ideally want the Shovel Ready category to remain the same because it means that while some projects move up the list into construction, some move into being shovel ready which means that number U/C stays constant.

- After a long period of dramatic increases, the number of projects Approved has finally only increased by +1 this term. 9 projects have moved UP the list into the Shovel Ready category - so again this is more evidence that the pipeline is nice and healthy. The last year or so has been quite worrying as we've had a tonne of projects move into the Approved category with not many advancing from being Approved to being U/C or at least site clearance/shovel ready. This indicated a block in the pipeline and an unwillingness from developers to actually build what they had approval for. Luckily, this blockage appears to have been cleared and we've got a pretty steady flow into Construction going now

- Projects holding a planning application which hasn't yet been approved stands at 56, up from 47 in November. This is the biggest increase, and comes from large-scale schemes like Owen St and Circle Square (where each block/tower is counted separately) gaining planning applications.

- The number of "Red" projects (those which are masterplans or visions without a planning application, not including framework applications) has increased from 42 to 45 now. There have been two new large-scale masterplan schemes announced this term: the first at UX Manchester in Strangeways and the second at Deansgate Central Sky Park. Of course, without planning applications, it's going to be years before these schemes start construction however it's good to know we have projects being planned into the long-term which can start once our short-to-medium term projects have completed.


So here's the graph. That "planning app bubble" I spoke about in February is still happening.... there are a lot of planning apps but not as much construction. This could be a good thing in indicating a healthy pipeline but it is almost double the amount Under Construction.... we really need to start getting some of these moved up into construction. The number of "UP" projects remains high at 62, meaning there is a lot of upward movement (i.e. projects gaining approval and projects starting construction) but maybe not as quick as we'd like. This could be down to a variety of reasons - for instance I've heard rumours that Manchester City Council are currently over-ridden with planning applications so they're palming some applications off to Salford City to deal with. They even told Renaker to hold off submitting an application a few months ago because they were swamped. There's also rumours of a Greater Manchester concrete shortage but I don't know how true they are.

Number of NEW projects has remained constant. Between November 2015 and February 2016 there were 30 new projects announced, that remains the same between February 2016 and now. There are 62 projects U/C.







This hasn't been a record-breaking 3 months but I don't think anybody can deny that it has felt like one. Renaker hasn't hung about in submitting a planning application for their Owen St towers, which should actually be Under Construction by the time I do the next update in early August 2016.

X1 have started construction on Phase 2 of their scheme in New Islington; while at First St Number 8 has also begun construction and will become the headquarters for Gazprom Energy upon completion. X1 has already started construction on phase 1 of their MediaCity scheme, but now Phase 2 (also a 26-storey tower) has started construction as well.... also in Salford Quays, Amstone have begun building Phase 1 of their Clipper's Quay scheme and Ordsall's regeneration has started in earnest with 207 apartments at Bridgewater Point having started construction as well.

In what has been a blow to the number of apartments U/C in the City Zone, the Angelgate scheme behind Victoria station has actually moved down out of the construction section: this is due to a squabble between the developer and the contractor, but should be resolved soon meaning construction can restart. Other schemes starting construction soon include the Axis Tower; X1 The Gateway at Salford Quays; 47 Houldsworth St and Manchester Life's two schemes at Leaf St and Royce Rd in Hulme. Also phase two at Stanley St and the Angel Gardens Tower are all anticipated to start construction before August.

Approved projects this quarter include the Airport redevelopment megaplan: involving the demolition of Terminal 1 and the total rebuilding of Terminal 2 to offer capacity for 50 million passengers at Manchester Airport. Oxygen Tower (31 floors, 343 apartments); The Crescent (24 floors, 405 apartments); and Gore St (21 floors, 375 apartments) have all gained approval alongside numerous smaller projects such as 142 apartments at Gresham Mill in Ordsall; 86 apartments at DeTrafford's City Gardens scheme in Hulme and the Salford University School of Engineering.

We now have planning applications for the Exchange Court Tower (44 floors, 350 apartments); Owen St towers 1, 2, 3 & 4 (62, 43, 48 & 52 floors, 1,300 apartments); Affinity Tower (33 floors, 318 apartments), the entire Circle Square masterplan (390,000sqft of office space, 677 apartments and 1028 MSCP spaces); and Exchange Quay (23, 15 floors, 45 bedroom hotel, 132 apartments and 14,000sqft of office space) - as well as numerous other smaller applications totalling about 70,000sqft of office space; about 1000 apartments and 300 hotel rooms.

Development Map

Now, because that's a heck of a lot of information, why don't we look at something which quantifies it in a form we can all agree with? Maps

Here's my Manchester Development Map, which is now a "Featured" Map on Google, and has had over 11,000 views after being featured in Place North West a few months ago.

A student at Manchester University also asked me if he could use it, alongside a few quotes from myself, in his dissertation - which he handed in the other day. Good luck to him!

I've since updated the Development Update so now a lot of the clickables also include pictures of the developments proposed. My plan for this map is to make Manchester's development and planning process more accessible not only for us on here, but also for the general public. A lot of the comments I've had back from the map have said how easy it is to finally find out "what's being built next door". I think more people should be engaged in Manchester's development so this is one way of achieving that.

Here's the map: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iK...hs&usp=sharing


Green = Under Construction
Blue = Approved
Orange = Holding planning application
Red = No planning application yet

Happy clicking!

Low res versions of the map, showing how the city centre will expand in the next few years. I have decided to base my dissertation around the map and explore whether or not the city centre's peripheral development sites will create cohesive urban districts expanding the city core OR whether they'll just become quiet urban districts always on the periphery. I'll keep you all posted.






That concludes the Development Update - see y'all again in August!

Interesting read on the 'Manchester's Future Skyline' article! I love the vision and I really do hope MCR gets the world-renowned skyline it deserves.

I was shocked by peoples responses in the comment section though! Lot's of pessimism. It seemed that people couldn't get past this basic 3D Render!

Great job guys.
