I couldn't find any count for Frankfurt, would be interesting if you could shed some light. But as I said, in terms of ongoing construction. Manchester seems to be a lot busier.

Cranes in the Barcelona skyline : 17
Cranes in the Rotterdam skyline: 21
Cranes in the Manchester skyline: 76

Frankfurt???

PS. As you can see from the picture’s, Manchester sits on a very flat plain, with the Pennine Hills in the distance.

Guys, why on earth are you filling this thread with a fight over Frankfurt & Manchester towers under construction? I come here to see updates, if people want to argue about Manchester's success then so be it, but it's just fueling a pointless conversation blocking-up this amazing thread.

Never thought I'd find such a nice and handy list of Frankfurt projects in the Manchester thread.

"Jungle experience to open at Lowry Outlet..."



"A 27,000 sq ft indoor activity centre themed around TV show ‘I’m A Celebrity’ is due to open at the Lowry Outlet at MediaCityUK next year.

The site will be part of the mall, close to the Vue cinema and ITV Studios, and is set to feature the Base Camp, Croc Creek, and Snake Rock. Guests will compete and face obstacles and challenges in order to collect stars, in a similar style to the celebrities competing on the programme.

The partnership between Lifestyle Outlets, which owns both the Lowry Outlet and Gloucester Quays, and ITV is part of the wider masterplan and £26m regeneration of the Lowry Outlet.

The project was granted planning permission in March this year, and work has begun on The Watergardens, converting the southern waterfront into a leisure destination with a 30,000 sq ft restaurant serviced by a new Metrolink line. Both are set to open next year.

Jason Pullen, managing director of Lifestyle Outlets, said: “The ‘I’m a Celebrity Jungle Challenge’ will be the first of its kind in the UK. I am confident that the experience will be a huge draw for people across the North West and beyond as they look to get closer to the action of this iconic TV show.”

James Penfold, controller of partnerships for ITV, said: “The ‘I’m A Celebrity… Jungle Challenge’ is a one of a kind, multi-sensory adrenaline adventure. It brings together the heart and soul of the hugely celebrated series.”"

There were a lot of rumours about a new indoor arena for East Manchester, close to the Etihad stadium. Then OVG confirmed they were looking at building a new indoor arena in Manchester.

A public fallout between the owners of the Manchester arena (in the city centre) and the city council thrn followed. http://www.manchester-arena.com/your...economy/11600/

Now 4 public exhibitions are going to be held for the new arena. The location, design, capacity, etc of the new arena isn’t known yet. But the rumours suggest the arena will be built close to the Etihad stadium, on the wider Etihad Campus, and the capacity of the new indoor will be 20,000+.
