The Manchester forum was invited to a St John’s and Enterprise City update presentation by Mike Ingall, CEO of Allied London, last night. It was held at No1 Spinningfields.

Like other forum members I managed to grab a few picture’s of the Manchester construction skyline.

Sorry. Camera phone. And shooting into the Evening Sun.(first 3 picture’s)

Just posted this on the Manchester, Greengate, thread.

The White Box Architects Twitter page states 10th of May, but no year. However, I’m assuming the dates with no year starting from the 9th of January are from this year. Tweets after the 9th of January are from 2018.

Information via the links.

Any guesses on the height of the Greengate tower? It looks an absolute monster.

"The best cities for buying property outside London

Last month, the Office for National Statistics revealed that more people left London in 2018 than any other year on record. Admittedly, they only started collecting data back in 2012. Nonetheless, high property prices and crime are causing Londoners to exodus in search of serenity and a mortgage that doesn’t see them sobbing into their pillow each night. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of some of the best places outside the capital to consider moving without losing a sense of being at the heart of things.

Manchester

Most Macunians would argue their city is superior to the capital in every way, but Manchester is still the closest thing to London you’ll find in the UK. The BBC moved much of their operations here some years ago. Channel 4 are soon set to follow up north to neighbouring Leeds. The northern powerhouse is beginning to look more and more like a reality and Manchester is very much at the centre of it. Prices are going up rapidly in the city centre, but there are still bargains to be had. Other interesting spots include the rapidly regenerating Salford Quays and Chorlton, one of Manchester’s most upscale neighborhoods. An abundance of bars serving prosecco on tap here. Something you never knew you needed, but obviously do.

A new build 1 bed flat in Salford Quays, home to the BBC and Lowry Gallery:

5 bed in Chorlton, Manchester’s poshest vicinity, for a fraction of the equivalent in London."

Full story...https://life.spectator.co.uk/article...utside-london/

Manchester’s growing skyline.

A few years back, only Beetham tower would have been visible in this picture. It would have stood alone. Not anymore.

PS. To the left of the tallest DS tower, Elizabeth Tower, 52 Stories, is currently under construction, but the concrete core isn’t visible yet. But you can see the Crown core, 22 stories.

Plans have emerged for a 28-acre “wellbeing resort” on the site of EventCity in Trafford, operated by leisure development giant Therme Group.

Therme builds and operates facilities across the world, including Therme Bucharest, the largest thermal leisure resort in Europe.

Not the Proposed Trafford one.

The cloud reflections on DS look fantastic.
