Very nice Ed. Love how Weavers Quay is in the distance for its image. I'm guessing that is intentional?!

So how will this work Ed? Will the front page of the thread be updated when a project starts construction/completes?

Christ there's loads. Ed are you not going to include all of the areas inside the inner ring road as the city zone? Only because both Manchester's and Salford's local plans recognise that area as the city centre.

Oh, I thought this was Weaver's Quay in the foreground? What's that then? Part of Lampwick?

Nah, this will stay as is and then I'll update it all again at the start of 2019. A few other subforums have a thread like this, like Edinburgh and London

Certainly is

City Zone = Manchester city centre (IMO). I think places like Greengate and Chapel St should be recognised as Salford. Doesn't mean they're not still part of Manchester though

Ed.

Don't post it on City Talk, otherwise certain forum members from other regional cities will have a meltdown and accuse you of spamming the thread.

Great work.

And to think, there is so much more to come in 2018. It really is unreal ATM what's going on in Manchester.

If you were an unbiased poster from another regional city you'd be very impressed with that roundup. Unfortunately it sticks in the throats for some, and it will only confirm (to them) how well Manchester is doing investment and construction wise.

Think the World forum would appreciate that great roundup.

Its 100% Lampwick.

This is probably the shot you want. It looks a little less crap at nighttime.
