What a shame and a huge opportunity missed with Pomona. An area with good transport links, a river setting sandwiched between Manchester and Salford Quays. Could have been something special for the city.

I prefer these plans





Just out of interest, are these plans for demolishing the existing Piccadilly Station building, including the main vault and replacing it, or building next to it somehow?

If it is demolishing, how historical are the existing vaults, and wouldn't there be an outcry against this?

So the ARUP plans as I interpret them are as follows....

A new HSR terminal to be built across Sheffield St from the current station building (to the north/north east of the station). Sheffield St will then be covered over providing a concourse between the current station and the HSR station, creating this concourse seen here (where the left hand side is the HSR terminal and the right hand side is the current station. Metrolink will also have four underground platforms underneath this concourse strip, so presumably access underground will be given here:





The vaults seen here will then be created into another concourse - like a food/shopping mall underneath the existing platforms.






You can see all the plans, including the shopping/food mall vaults, in this diagram by ARUP:






There's potential to create a really special space under the Piccadilly vaults, which is currently used as a car park:








I like to imagine something similar to the Oyster Bar at New York's Grand Central station could be created here....

Not sure about last one, typical London style which could have been anywhere in the UK. I prefer some regional differences in projects.

It works both ways Quicksilver previous architectural styles typified in the North have been replicated in London.

I really like it! But maybe one of the reasons I like it is because it's distinctly London?

Manchester will never look like London though, and London will never look like Manchester. There are still huge regional differences

Andy Burnham has announced that he may be running for the Labour candidacy in the Manchester mayoral elections next May.

Quote:
Burnham Preparing To Run For Manchester Mayor

Sky News: http://news.sky.com/story/1691115/bu...nchester-mayor



The new "Metro Mayor" will have unprecedented powers over billions in funding for health, transport, housing and criminal justice.

Shadow home secretary Andy Burnham has been approached to stand as the Labour candidate to be the first elected mayor of Greater Manchester.

Mr Burnham has said he is actively considering the proposal, and Sky News understands he has made some initial preparations for a run in next May's election - part of the Government's "devolution revolution" of new powers to city regions.

The new "Metro Mayor" will have unprecedented powers over billions in funding for health, transport, planning, housing, policing, skills and criminal justice.

Labour MPs from the area told Sky News the party wants a big hitter for the role - with more impact than current candidates Ivan Lewis MP and the current interim mayor and ex-MP Tony Lloyd.

Mr Burnham will make a final decision in the next few weeks, but sources in Greater Manchester say he has sounded out a small number of local figures.

He said: "It's very early days - the truth is I've had people approaching me to consider it, so I have decided to consider it.

"Over the next few days I'll take soundings from people in the political community in Greater Manchester, but also in business, in sport, in other fields like the health service - and I'll make a decision in due course."

"But I would stress, whatever that decision is, I would continue to serve the leader of the Labour Party and stay in the shadow cabinet."

The MP for Leigh in Greater Manchester has been widely praised for his response to the Hillsborough inquiry, and has taken an active interest in the debate among Greater Manchester councils.

The timetable for selection kicks off this month.

It would mark a huge departure for the man who just over a year ago - before "Corbynmania" - was favourite to become the next Labour leader.

Labour sources in the region said Mr Burnham had privately expressed the view that "Devo Manc" was a "big moment in British politics" which could "give the north a real voice, if done properly".

Many senior northern Labour politicians have suggested the party's big mistake in Scotland was not to get its biggest national hitters to stay at Holyrood, letting in the Scottish National Party.

Mr Burnham, a former health secretary, also wrote Labour manifesto plans for the integration of national health and social care last year.

The Manchester mayor will have new powers over the integration of health and social care for 2.7 million locals, covering 100,000 health staff.
