Nothing special, but certainly inoffensive and solid filler for the site.

Would you believe it, we're getting to the point where we have "filler". Good times.

I love these sort of residential schemes.

One question though. Is there any piece of land in Manchester that isn`t currently the subject of proposals!!

Loool, well there are a few to be fair - but they're becoming more and more rare

More fundamental pieces in the city jigsaw to bridge the centre with the Quays. 19 and 16 floors certainly not to be sniffed at for this part of town and all adds to the density and elevate the big city vibes.

Tim Groom does some fantastic designs (Port Street, Sharp Street, Excelsior Mill). I'll await final renders. Basically, expect high quality finish and a decent design.

Looks pretty darn good to me. Similar to North View, Irk Valley.

View from Cornbrook Station.

A bit of banter here. Please don't bite. But in all seriousness as well. Imagine what all those United tourist and day trippers will think of Manchester when they go to and from Old Trafford via Chester Road, and via the Metrolink. It will blow their minds.(unless they come from New York, Sydney, London, Singapore, etc)

Looks good in that CGI.

Good bulk to surround the core of the Cornbrook Hub area. I appreciate that it conforms to the street network to improve activation.

It actually completely eradicates part of a street.

Wow, where did this come from? I live right by Cornbrook and had no idea there were any plans for this area. This would be a massive boost for that side of Chester Road. Currently all the redevelopment is going on on the Castlefield side. This would also work really well with the refurbished council blocks just behind - would look like one, coherent development.

Just looked on G**gle Earth, nothing of architectural merit as far as I can see. Will post photos sometime. Hopefully this will help kick-start the 'Cornbrook Hub' development which seems to have gone quiet.

This plot is technically in Old Trafford (because the boundaries are absurd) and so while something here has been mooted before (in UrBed's Old Trafford master plan) it hasn't been widely promoted. How developments in Manchester and Trafford inegrate at this point will be a key factor in terms of determining the success of the area. Evidence from Pomona Island has not been reassuring, so hopefully this is the start of better planning.

Yep, looks like we will be seeing the end of Cornbrook Park Road.

Struggling to get excited about this one, but it I guess it can only enhance a tired area. The variation in brick colour is interesting though. Various shades of Pink, Blue and Brown. Could look quite unique.

You're being sarcastic right?

The colours indicate which parts of the building will be in the brick indicated on that line. For example the light brown has the greyish brown brick.

It's also a sign of confidence in the quality of the development. Harsh sunlight can obscure cheaper materials/brickwork. The Cornbrook area is actually going to be of a higher architectural quality than more central areas - if I ever moved back to the city centre it would be top of my list along with Ancoats/New Islington.

No I am not being sarcastic. You can clearly see the colours of brickwork on the left of this image. I see Blue, I see Pink, I see Brown, even Green. So why on earth do you think I am being sarcastic?



And just so you know, the manner by which you talk to people on here is absolutely disgusting.
