Here you go:



Please let me know if you spot any errors! When I get a spare moment I'll set up the Google Drive crane count so that people can go in and edit. To avoid 'cyber vandalism', I'll only give the passcode to frequent posters via PM - hope that's ok

Outwood Wharf doesn't have any.

X1 The Exchange confused me, cos the name is wrong, should be The Gateway.

Same with Unite Tower, called Poncey Heights now.

City Gardens is gone.

Landmark is 1.

1 at X1 Landmark isn't on there.

Downtown is zilch.

Not 100% sure on Dn Sq, but think it is only 2 now.

What the **** is Citylabs 2.0?

I feel like Polygon should be included with the airport total, as in, who gives a ****.

Re X1 developments:

The Landmark is the one on Oldfield Road (behind Middlewood locks) which does have 1 crane and has just restarted.

The Gateway is on Trafford Road and has 1 crane, and is currently frozen.

The Exchange completed a few years back. So just rename The Exchange as The Gateway and it is right.

King Wiliam St/Discovery Quay doesn't have a crane yet but I think Fortis Quay has two?

So by my reckoning re your latest list:

Lose :

Downtown -1
Outwood Wharf: -1
King William Street: -1
Owen Street podium: -1
City Gardens:-1

Add:

Fortis Quay +1

Rename:

X1 The Exchange is X1 the Gateway
St Georges Island as St Georges Gardens

Which I make as 78 rather than 82 (lose 5 add 1)?

Sorry!

I will try and take a photo on the way home from work but I saw two flat back lorries with tower crane parts on pulling to discovery quay/king william st today so it may actually be gettings its tower crane after all.

Just a quick scan of the list...the most obvious one is the 'Owen St Podium building' - this is no longer there.

I've also created a Google Drive document with the table so that people can view the Crane Count:

If you want to be able to edit it, please PM me your email address and I'll send you an invite

Sadly it's 79 as you still have Outwood Wharf on your list.

Anyone care to speculate on whether we've already had our 'peak crane' moment. There are some to go up in the next few weeks / months such as Renaker's Castlefield project (maybe 2) 3 New Bailey (3?) but looking down the list, we will lose a few too. The DS ones will probably be gone by September, Angel Gardens sooner to name three but there will be others too...

I would hope there are a few to go up at St Johns?

Not to mention plot 9A at First Street; Old Brewery Gardens, Transition; Lomax Street is due to start (a building app has been approved); Lampwick will likely start soon; I can imagine another at Talbot Mill; Eider House will start once Dakota has finished; Tirbeca will start soon though I'm not sure if that is having a crane.

Why the bitchiness and snarkiness?
A simple question - that's all. Just trying to get a few opinions on what's coming and going.

You really do yourself no favours, why anyone bothers posting here I don't know - there's always some sort of bitchy comeback from you. It's all so un-necessary. This is a public site not your personal Facebook page.
