I wonder what route they will take for the design. Another ugly but functional facility like the Arena or something special to compete against it.

Considering the location, I suspect it will look a bit better but still be relatively forgettable.

ADUG/MCFC are partnering with Oak View, so I would assume we could be talking about a possible World class Arena? ADUG/MCFC spent £150mill on the CFA across the road from the stadium. It will be interesting to see if Oak View fund the arena themselves, or if the funding is shared with ADUG/MCFC, as infrastructure funding on the stadium and the land around the stadium isn’t FFP related.

Place North West.

Barclays deal still in play as Mayfield offices progress

23 Aug 2019, 11:58
Charlie Schouten

Developer U+I will submit planning applications for offices totalling nearly 300,000 sq ft at Manchester’s Mayfield over the next two months with a major deal with Barclays still on the table.



Talks are ongoing with the bank but it appears unlikely that either of the Baring Street campus offices are being targeted; instead, Place North West understands Barclays is eyeing a “campus style” development elsewhere in the Mayfield masterplan at the Mayfield Depot part of the site, where a number of large-scale office towers are planned.

10 minute drone video close to the city centre and Salford Quays.

The person flying the drone zooms into a few of the construction sites.

A few screen grabs from the video.

To watch the video in HD, go to the red cog and select HD.









Taken from the video I posted this Morning on the skyline thread. If you want to see many of the other developments currently under construction from the air, (screen grabbed), click on the link https://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=969

The two large parcels of land to the left are future phases of Middlewood Locks.(otherside if the River Irwell) And the eagerly awaited Trinity Island proposal by Renaker.(bottom left corner) Which could include a new tallest tower for Manchester.

St John’s. Including Factory.

"Stock Exchange set for November opening"



"Manchester’s keenly-awaited Stock Exchange Hotel is to open on 15 November as a member of Relais & Châteaux, a global network of independently-owned and operated luxury hotels.


The grade two-listed Norfolk Street building was acquired by Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs six years ago, with redevelopment being consented in 2015. The building, formerly owned by developer MCR, is currently undergoing redevelopment into a hotel with 40 rooms and a 3,500 sq ft penthouse residence. The food and drink operation is to be run by chef Tom Kerridge, as announced at the start of June.

Neville and Giggs are working with hotelier and co-owner Winston Zahra on the project. The hotel will be managed and operated by Manchester-based GG Hospitality, which lists the former Manchester United teammates as two of its four directors. Following its closure as a stock exchange, the building housed Stock restaurant.

Neville said: “We knew the Stock Exchange well from when it was a restaurant but it was only when we viewed it in its entirety that we realised the extent of the history there.

“Most people familiar with the building will know of the domed ceiling above the old trading room floor, but there are many other original features that will not have been seen by many, such as fireplaces, vaults and stained glass windows. For us it was critical that this heritage was protected, and it now sits at the heart of what we hope will be an exciting new concept for Manchester.”

Zahra said: “We are honoured to be the first ever Relais & Châteaux member in Manchester and one of the first properties in the 65-year history of the fellowship to become a member before its doors open. This is testament to all of the work the team has been doing behind the scenes. We have put a great amount of effort into ensuring the design for the property truly respects the history of the building.”"

I think people forget. I certainly do. That (Gtr) Manchester by World standards is a medium sized regional city, if that, with a population of just 2.6mill.

Considering that, the amount of construction and cranes is phenomenal.

The last picture is just. construction and cranes.

The problem is that there are no world standards - none that make accurate comparisons of cities and how they are measured around the world.

I would agree that Manchester is a mid-sized city. But to limit it to 2.6 million is interesting and that is where world standards don't exist. What is that 2.6 million? Is that Greater Manchester (Latest estimates are 2.8 million) and that is just a political boundary.

Is that urban population? If so, every country has completely different measurements of how to define an urban area.

That's definitely not metropolitan population figures, and again, every country uses a completely different method for that too.

Look at the difference Sydney is to Manchester. Sydney's smallest LGA (city of Sydney) is 240,000 to Manchester's LGA (City of Manchester) of 540,000.

Manchester has Greater Manchester with an elected Mayor but Sydney doesn't have that. Instead it has a confusing selection of different regions of which most people just refer to the widest area possible covering 12,000km2 and 5.2 million.

If we covered that same area, it would include Sheffield, Leeds and Liverpool and have around 12 million people.

But ask anyone what the population of "Sydney" is and they state that figure.

So while we can't do the same due to the polycentric population here, there is still a greater area around Greater Manchester that acts as the catchment area for commuting (which is the driving principle of metropolitan areas).

Gosh... all crazy stuff, but all I am saying is that there are no world standards.

Yes, we are a mid sized city, but we have to be careful how we compare our population with other mid sized cities as they will use completely different measurements.

Just for reference, in the area we have 2.8 million for Greater Manchester, Sydney has a similar population and as we expand out, the population gets larger here but starts to merge with Liverpool whist Sydney has other (smaller) regional centres that dot around.

Hope you get my drift here. No criticism, just explaining that we have to be careful when comparing global populations.

Justme.

Completely understand where you are coming from.

Basically, the size of (Gtr) Manchester, relative to the amount of construction going on, is fantastic.
