I'm not over enthusiastic about Circle Square but I appreciate the ambition and quality. The density is unbelievable, while profit the main goal but still having the city interest at heart. The amount of commercial, retail and residential is immense while still including a 120m tower and a decent size green open space. Some could say best of both worlds. Arguably, one of the biggest and most dense developments under construction within the country outside Gtr' LND.

This will be a game changer for Manchester. We'll see how things turn out, as of now. Less is more rings bells in my head. For vanity reasons and quality of life anyway...

I just came back from a business trip to Manchester - my second in recent months - and the volume of new construction in the centre is amazing. It seems as though half the city is either recently built or being built. Not all of the new architecture is good quality. There's too much bar code cladding for my taste, not least on the Deansgate Towers. But most of the new buildings improve the cityscape. It's also nice to see many of the grand old Victorian buildings have been given a good scrub. Manchester has some of the most intact Victorian streets anywhere. A notable difference from London is the relative lack of Georgian buildings.

As an occasional visitor, I wonder what occupied the central construction sites before? Were they low quality post war buildings, of the kind that have made way for so much of recent construction in central London? Or were they car parks and other 'dead' spaces? I suspect many are the latter. Central Manchester certainly feels far denser and more urban than before, and the zone that feels 'urban' and 'central' is rapidly expanding in area.

Also love the trams: 100km and still growing. It must be one of the largest tram networks in the world now. The city is booming in every way.

Actually, I'm quite fond of Deansgate, I love the way the light changes them, but I know what you are saying. There are some great facades but a lot do tend to be in the lower cost area. That said, it's great all these empty spaces are being filled up. I just wish the council would also repair the pavements and resurface the roads.

When I arrived in Manchester, people referred to it as the "doughnut of desolation" or "ring of shit" - basically a circle around the city centre of dereliction. It was for the most part, surface car parks and empty, overgrown plots - a truely bizarre sight to see surrounding a city centre. Before that, there was a mix of medium density factories and housing and if that were not bulldozed, they could have been wonderful historical neighbourhoods today - though that is of course a personal perspective - others say that they had to be destroyed because they were all of poor quality... but who is to say eh.

It will be really nice when all of it has been developed in a decade or so. At the way we are going, we are building two highrise clusters, one in the north (Greengate area) and one in the south (Deansgate)

We also have other areas like Ancoats which started development a few years ago and is really nice now and Castlefield which is growing into another nice innercity neighbourhood.

Nowhere near the biggest tram networks in the world. Last I checked it didn't make it into the top 20. Also, many of those cities with bigger tram networks also have a proper metro system or heavy rail network and many of them fully integrated ticketing.

Don't get me wrong. I'm glad we have Metrolink. I use it everyday. But it's the only system in the city that is usable and it's no a metro.

Glad you enjoyed coming to our city and yeah, it is growing and improving. It's changing so fast you can come back in a year or two and it will look different and have even more things to do.

Those are very honest and positive comments, Langur. Glad you enjoyed your trip to Manchester.

Below the 2 picture’s is a link to the ‘Old Manchester’ thread. It’s 38 pages long now. It you have time, it’s worth scrolling through the thread. It contains many old picture’s of the city and the city centre, including many aerial picture’s of the city centre, which give a very good snap shot of what the city centre looked liked, and how it’s changed over time. Sadly many of the grand Victorian buildings have been lost due to the German bombing of Manchester, but also due to Manchester’s short sighted councils, planning officers, and property developers.

Quote:
Apologies. Lost the link again. I’ll start screen grabbing them if I don’t have time to post the picture and link.

100%, it stated 1949.

Enlarged the picture via the iPad.

London Road, Piccadilly Gardens, Market Street (Debenhams marker), and you can see the labyrinth of low rise buildings that were all demolished to make way for the Arndale Centre.

Many of Manchester’s Victorian buildings were still standing after the 2nd World War. And had survived the German bombing of the city.



Old Manchester thread.

Ancoats on the edge of the city centre and it’s made up of Victorian Miles and buildings. It was once Manchester’s (city centre) Industrial district. Now most of the Victorian Mills have been redeveloped in apartments and offices, and Ancoats is now full of bars, restaurants, indie shops, etc.

An old aerial picture of Ancoats. An it’s retail park, as it was known, has been demolished, and the land is now owned by the city council and ADUG, who own Manchester City Football club. The whole site is going to be redeveloped into housing, apartments, retail, a park, etc. The land behind the retail park has already be redeveloped into a primary school, apartments, etc.

A history of Ancoats. 111 pages. PDF.

Yeh the regeneration efforts are truly impressive. I only started following this thread closely over the last few months and only recently realised how extensive the ongoing developments are, its literally like the whole city has been reconstructed in the space of a decade.I cant really think of any other examples in mainland europe on par with in terms of scale of investment. I cant wait to go and visit it sometime soon

Some of the losses to the cityscape during the late 20th century for buildings like the arndale are hard to stomach but Manchester still has more than enough old buildings to make it a very charactered,interesting and unique urban area
