I think they just set up a different limited company for each development. It's a common tool used by developers to reduce the risk to the overall group if one project fails. Think it also tax "efficient" to do it that way.

I appreciate it's not quite as simple as this, but they could move their No1 Greengate construction team on to the new tower once No1 Greengate is completed.

If you think about it rationally, they could be onsite at 5 different tower sites at some point this year. Greengate x2, Cambridge Street x2, Owen Street x2, Wilburn Basin X1.5(smaller block), and Water Street X1. 8.5 towers and blocks.

From the sounds of it (particularly the cladding) would it be wrong to say it looked a little like One the Elephant in London (the gold/beige tones?) It'll certainly be nice to have a splash of colour in this cluster given the greys and blacks of the currently under construction builds, along with the variety of brick colours that have been used (and potentially being used in the scheme behind the Embankment building).

Certainly sounds like it will compliment Norton Court tower.

Wrong. Norton Court will complement it.

Calm yourself down.

Sounds like they will compliment each other better?

Exactly what I was thinking a few days back, clearly a great opportunity to keep the skills set in tandem.

Until colour renders are released it's hard to tell.

That aside.

That's some canyon/density in the 2nd diagram. Take it the other tower close by is Norton Court?

Place North West has a full article.

Norton Court and then next to that is another tall (future proposal?) The city is literally creating a wall of towers

As you can see, the Greengate cluster rising in the middle.

Every building in the image is either proposed or U/C which also includes the 25&32 storey tower behind Citysuites, the second 100m+ in the NOMA project and the former BBC site tower:

Great work Stig. All being well, this will be the skyline c2025?

Of course on one hand not all of the proposed towers will be built, but on the other hand, there will be several towers that we don't yet know about.

Pretty awesome, but it's not just a better skyline that we'll be getting, it's essentially a larger city as peripheral areas get developed and all the while the core of the city also becomes more dense- Kampus, Origin, Great Northern, Great Jackson Street etc, all breathing new life into some quieter parts of the established centre.

Embankment West application docs up now - 15/66621/FULEIA

Could probably do with its own thread, unless there is one

Looking through the application at the moment and so far I'm impressed!

Also it's 107m tall for the tallest tower, whilst the second tallest is ~83m which is almost No2 Greengate size in itself!

I will post the renders on here shortly

I came here to post a sarcy comment along the lines of "what, no new towers today?", and there's a new bloody tower! Unreal!

Some of the renders are dull but looking at the proposal there's the Chicago esque look to them as well as Art deco style windows. I think its fits in well in the overall scheme.

This, Circle Square and 10-12 WS are bringing more of a US style to our towers. Which I do like!

At the centre of Greengate original master plan and the most recent version is a "Central Park" area and market area.

Anyone any idea if any of the proposed 'scrapers - or a combination of - is likely to trigger the creation of such?

It's the car park area in between Abito and Norton Street.

Think this needs to be posted again to give a better indication of the proposal.

The render shows a tree filled park in that plot.
