Hmm, from all reports the growth in city centre living is not going to slow, indeed, for Manchester it may acclerate. Unless you want to build your flats and office, out of the city centre, then the remaining plots are viable to go taller.

If we did not have Renekar and the city council then only maybe the Abu Dhabi boys would back a project. We have options and the know how to back it up. If it was going to happen then, assuming no new catastrophic recession, then it would be announced within the next 24months max as he current crop of builds are finished and the financial returns made?

I think the biggest goal over the next couple years is to cross 250m.

There is only Moscow, St. Petersburg and London throughout Europe with towers over 300m. Not saying it will never happen, I think it depends how Manchester evolves and develops over the next couple of years.

That's deliberate from the Qatari owners. If they wanted to sell them they would be snapped up off market very quickly.

Indeed. There's only twelve of them.

This got me thinking - I know Bridgewater Place in Leeds had issues with creating wind tunnels etc. Given the proximity of the 2 cities, has there been any concern around this in Manchester as well? I presume not, hence the numerous high rises going up but if someone could just shed some light on that, and whether this could affect the height limit in the future?

I think Manchester could sustain a plus 300m tower.

But first we'll have to stop referring to ourselves as "the regions" If we want a 300m+ tower, we shouldn't throw ourselves in the same bundle as the town of Sandwich.

We're the second city in the world's 5th richest nation with a population just under 3million and much more in the metropolitan area.

We're not "the regions"

I don't feel like the majority of people from Manchester think like that. Nor do I think the Manchester users and many users across the world on this forum, they know the difference. They can see the difference. Just look at the stats. Obviously these big companies, developers, airliners etc... Who are investing in Manchester don't think like that either. The majority of people who try to label Manchester as a "regional city" is users from other U.K cities. Many don't want to see Manchester break barriers and would prefer for each city to be equal-ish. Especially some of the older generation who try and sweep the past 20 years in Manchester's history under the rug, they pretend to be oblivious and are in complete denial.
(Which I do understand to a certain degree, this kinda wasn't meant to happen)

Realistically Manchester has a long way to go before you could compare it as the Milan to Rome, Frankfurt to Berlin or the Barcelona towards Madrid. Manchester will never be on or close to London's level. Just like the successful city of Boston will never compete with New York. However, I personally think the ambition is there. Not just from the people and spirit of Manchester but as we can all see with all the investment pouring in. Manchester has moved on from comparing itself with B'ham, L'pool, Leeds, Sheffield, Bristol etc... No disrespect to those cities as they are all doing great in there own lane, (especially Leeds & Brum lately), just nowhere close to MAN. Manchester is on another level. This isn't 2001 anymore.

Although not there yet... Barcelona, Frankfurt and Milan is 100% the ambition. By the way things are progressing the majority of bankers, investors, developers, posters and population also feel the same. I personally think, not only is it the right attitude to have but very possible. The next 20 years in Manchester's future is going to be extremely important. Nobody knows...

Manchester has come so far but I would be stupid not to acknowledge how much there is still to be done.

Fortis Quay

Loving the curves. If the cladding is right, this will look superb.

A bit of Miami in Salford Quays.

Red cog. Go to HD. Sound on.

The amount of cranes and construction show by the drone video is insane.

Watch the latest drone footage from X1 The Landmark, Salford here.

Wow ! Some incredible shots there Mathew, ! really reflects how the City is evolving, reinventing itself in a dynamic and cosmopolitan way. No other City in the UK apart from London is experiencing this unprecedented level of Investment.

The £1bn TP plan in the Airport also underpins this, MAN connects to over 200 destinations World Wide, and is now the Global Gateway to the North of England.

Watch this Space...More to Come ….
