Has anyone seen the plans for 67-73 and 75 Mosley Street? Its an empty office building right next to Manchester Art Gallery. It's actually, in my opinion, quite a nice building as it is. I hope they don't do too much to it, just a little refresh. The vis' atm is pretty shocking...early days yet.

X1 The Gateway looks absolutely majestic, it's a toss up between this and Angel Gardens for my favourite future development.

wow. It's crazy tiny. It's think it's a masterpiece of planning and engineering to put up a skyscraper in that space.

Trying out a new format for the tall buildings update - it's more colourful ( ) and gives more information about each individual project. It's also easy-to-see what status each tall building is at.

I'm hoping to switch the Development Update up to this standard by the next update in August, although as you can imagine it's a mammoth task. There are literally hundreds of projects ongoing in Manchester right now: Under Construction/Approved/In Planning/Pre Planning.


Notes
  • The dominance of Simpson-Haugh architects on our skyline. Manchester's 7 future tallest buildings will be designed by S-H.

  • The dominance of the City Zone in the skyscraper rankings. Out of 43 buildings over 80m, 29 of them are in the CZ.

  • Last year, Manchester had 10 buildings over 80m. Now, it has 12. By the end of Summer this will have risen to 16, by which point 1 Water St; Number 1 Spinningfields; and X1 MediaCityUK Towers 1 & 2 will have topped out.

  • Manchester currently has 4 buildings over 100m. In the next few years, this is expected to rise to 22.

  • Manchester currently has 12 buildings over 80m. In the next few years, this is expected to rise to 43.

  • Residential is the main use for Manchester's tall buildings: proposed; under construction and pre-planning. Office is second.

  • Owen St Towers 1 & 4 will, in the next few weeks, be approved by Manchester City Council - at which point they will change green to "Groundworks". (They are actually already at the Groundworks stage but because they still don't have Approval they can't advance past the Planning Application stage).

  • Allied London is currently the most active developer of tall buildings in Manchester, with 11 (however just 1 of these is currently Under Construction). Renaker has three buildings under construction over 80m, and 8 in the overall pipeline. X1 have four buildings over 80m active, with two under construction; while Select have 3.

  • OMI is the architect with the most tall buildings under construction: with 3. Simpson-Haugh holds the most pipeline tall buildings: with 17.

Long term do you think that railings or fences may be put up around the canals? In trying to create a family friendly sort of community down that way - safety is paramount. I’b be very nervous about all of that open access water if I had small children.

I'd like to think so, however surprisingly quite a lot of the canals around Manchester don't have railings - I don't recall any in Castlefield.

When I was growing up we lived near the Bridgewater Canal as it ran through Salford and used to go for regular walks up and down it - I remember standing "too near" to the water on several occasions but my Mum shouting "step away from the water!!!" was always enough to save me from joining the shopping trolleys at the bottom of the canal

There's a new primary school being built just across from this development, I imagine there'll be railings there.... whether this will be extended across the whole development I'm not sure...

Thanks for the continued updates VDB. When I was in Manchester last week, the amount of construction seems breathtaking, and it is quite amazing what is still to come.

New modular homes on the canalside at New Islington.

A similar scheme will soon be underway in Salford









The interior. Each house has a garden, which is a really bonus in this part of the city:
