Ivan Lewis

Ivan Lewis has announced that he too will run for Labour candidacy in the Manchester Mayoral election next year, and will take on Andy Burnham and incumbent (unelected) mayor Tony Lloyd for the Labour candidacy.

His announcement comes just weeks after both Burnham and Lloyd have announced that they will both be running to represent Labour - which is the party most likely to win an election in the Greater Manchester area.




Facts- Ivan Lewis
  • MP for Bury South, in the Manchester borough of Bury (1997-current)

  • Minister of State for Care Services (2006-2008)

  • Minister of State for International Development (2008-2009)

  • Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (2009-2010)

  • Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (2010-2011)

  • Shadow Secretary of State for International Development (2011-2013)

  • Shadow Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (2013-2015)

  • Represents: Labour.

  • Website: http://www.ivanlewisformayor.co.uk/



Proposed policies
  • Policies revolve around social justice and sustainability. Wants to improve healthcare and expand the public transport network, making Manchester "a beacon of global social justice".

  • Like Lloyd, he wants to protect the NHS in Manchester from privatisation, and believes every Mancunian has the right to free healthcare.

  • Ascribes everything which needs improving in Greater Manchester to inequality: inequality in pay, leading to poverty in the inner cities; inequality in economic planning; inequality in government investment outside of London; inequality in an unregulated transit network meaning companies put profits before passengers, leading to an inaccessible city region. He wants to challenge these aspects and rid Greater Manchester of inequality.

One Spinningfields | Spinningfields
Offices | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1693947

  • Address: Hardman Square, Spinningfields, City Zone Manchester M3

  • Architect: Simpson-Haugh

  • Floors: 20

  • Height: 92m

  • Office Space: 300,000sqft

  • Developer: Allied London

Current status: Under Construction

Nearest transport: Salford Central








Update by me, today

This is such an amazing development, I was having to crane my neck looking up at it - going to be absolutely amazing. Was also good to see that Spinningfields was buzzing despite it being a building site at the moment.



Approaching from Peter St (bit blurry, sorry camera phone!)






It's going to continue the Quay St Canyon:




















Absolutely enormous







I know Andrew was asking the day why the podium structure hadn't started.... well, it has now!






Interesting how they get the crane up through the building when there isn't a core shaft available.... what're they going to use this hole in the floorplates as when the building is complete? Or will they just fill it in?







The reflection on Esure's headquarters:







The juxtaposition in height, scale and between red brick and glass + steel that Manchester seems to do so well:









Giant rising.

The archaeology team from Salford University are on-site alongside Renaker's construction equipment. Salford are currently digging on the site of Tower 4. They told me they've found several mills, including a dye works.

Once the archaeology team have done their bit, Renaker will start construction on the towers (provided they get approval from the City on June 22nd that is).

Great update VDB.

Lets hope the EU referendum the next day doesn't affect the planning application for Owen Street.

Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD)

Manchester, United Kingdom

The Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD) will be one of the largest, single construction projects ever undertaken by a higher education institution in the United Kingdom and will transform the way in which the University educates future engineers in response to the needs of the fast-changing global economy. Mecanoo has been tasked to build a campus which will open its doors to the public and reinforce Manchester’s status as a city of science.

The build – due to open in 2020 – is part of the University’s campus master plan to create a world-leading teaching, learning and research campus to develop the engineers and innovators of tomorrow. The new site will act as a gateway between the existing University of Manchester site and the city and will be a destination where world-changing engineering and applied science is on display and visible to all.

The campus will help demonstrate how UK engineering is one of the most creative industries in the world – a key feature on the ground floor of the main hall will be a dedicated ‘maker space’ which will provide dynamic workshops for students and academics to share ideas and innovate.


Professor Martin Schröder, Vice-President and Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University, said: “This outstanding new campus development will build upon our proud heritage of innovation and discovery across engineering and science that began with the establishment of the Manchester Mechanics’ Institute in 1824.

MECD will inspire engineers to continue our pioneering spirit and to apply their knowledge and help modern industry overcome global challenges, such as climate change, finite natural resources and changing world markets.”

Once complete, the Manchester Engineering Campus Development will become home to the University’s four engineering schools and two research institutes from the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences. It will include extensive, modern teaching spaces that reflect the changing demands of students and staff for mobile and flexible learning. Cutting-edge technologies will enable students across all disciplines to engage with new modes of teaching and become part of the ‘global classroom’.


Size: 81,000 m2
Status: Ongoing
Project Design: 2014 - 2014
Project Realisation: 2017 - 2019
Address: Grosvenor Street, Upper Brook Street and Booth Street East.
Client: University of Manchester, UK

Programme: 81,000 m2 campus development with central MEC Hall (59,000 m2), including state-of-the-art student spaces, teaching environments, lecture halls, laser labs (1161 m2), dry labs (8784m2), chemical labs (2412 m2), biological labs (630 m2), characterisation labs (1141 m2), workshops, cleanrooms, meeting rooms, conference, food and beverage, equipment/material storage and associated public realm.

Mecanoo reveals plans for Manchester housing


Dutch practice Mecanoo has unveiled its plans for a 9,500m² housing scheme in Hulme, Manchester


PROJECT DATA

The scheme includes 85 apartments in a five-storey block and 20 three-storey family homes alongside new public realm and parking.

The S-shape of the housing’s plan creates two semi-enclosed public green spaces which are connected to each other through large gates within the building which also mark the entrance to the apartments.

Bordering Manchester Metropolitan University, the Leaf Street site has had a history of urban renewal and this will be the fourth time it has been redeveloped. Victorian terraced homes on the site were demolished after the Second World War to make way for the Hulme Crescents – one of the UK’s largest post-war social housing schemes. In the 1990s the ‘crescents’ were demolished and a large part of the neighbourhood was redeveloped.


The project is set to be the first scheme completed by housing provider One Manchester after it was formed from the merger of Eastlands Homes and City South Manchester Housing Trust last year.

The scheme is set to start on site next month and is expected to complete in 2017.

Mechanical and electrical engineer Max Fordham
Acoustic consultant Max Fordham
Cost consultant Simon Fenton Partnership

With the recent appointments of Pep Guardiola at City, and Jose Mourinho at United, the football tourist influx to Manchester will only increase over the next 3 season's.

Nearly £1bn's worth of projects have been approved today by Manchester City Council - accounting for 1,500 new homes and over 1 million sqft of floorspace.

To say Manchester is booming is quite possibly an understatement.



PLANNING | Manchester gives green light to £800m of development

Essentially it means you do away with separate bedrooms and living rooms, and instead "fold" your bedroom down over your living room at night.





As this gif shows:






Each apartment will be made off-site and then craned into a stack:
