You might want to amend the title of this thread jrb. Post #116, Piccadilly Basin thread.

Quote:
Time & Tide sets sights on 20-storey Manchester tower

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lancaster-based developer Time & Tide is to submit a planning application for a £58m, 20-storey tower in the Piccadilly area of central Manchester.

The developer wants to build the 220,000 sq ft scheme on the corner of Great Ancoats Street and Store Street, close to Inacity's planned tower development.

The scheme will comprise 250 residential and live-work units as well as a 3,500 sq ft retail unit fronting Great Ancoats Street.

As well as the 20-storey tower, a "satellite" building of 7 storeys will also be included in the scheme.

The development will be aimed at the owner occupier market, rather than investors.

John Asplin, director of Time & Tide, said: "The Manchester site has huge potential and represents a real step in Time and Tide's development.

"Piccadilly is growing quickly and investment such as this will be critical to the regeneration of Piccadilly and the ongoing revitalisation of the wider area."

Consultation on the Manchester scheme is expected to begin later this month and a decision on planning is anticipated in the autumn.

Renders in the MEN about this. Page 2 in homes section.

29 stories with a 6 storey block next to it. 330 appartments £117,00+. Looking for approval early next year.

It called 'Gravity'.

Can anyone scan the picture in? It reminds me a little of the curved corner section of abito, were the shape continued to make an oval....only taller.

I really like the hotpotch of designs that is due, from Islington Wharf to Skyline Central.

I don't like the render in the MEN one bit personally, looks cheap and dated.

Pull of Gravity by Jill Burdett

ANOTHER towering scheme is being planned for Manchester. This one will soar 29 storeys at a site cornering Store Street and Great Ancoats Street, a mere shadow away from the Islington Wharf scheme, which is already taking shape just down the road.

Christened Gravity, not because it defies it, but because it will help pull people into East Manchester, it will be a mix of 330 apartments, with new shops on the ground floor.

Alongside the tower will be a six- storey block and the developers see the site as an important link between Piccadilly and the east.

Designed by architects Austin Smith Lord, the developers, Time & Tide, are aiming at owner occupiers with prices starting at £117,000 and interiors which will have sliding walls so you can configure the space how you want it.

They are also promising some three bedroom options and a new urban Park. The same company is just completing a scheme called Approach at the bottom of Blackfriars, at the other side of town, and MD John Asplin said: "As with all our projects Store Street will be a design-led development as focused on building communities as properties.

"Because we cater specifically for the owner-occupier market we can create more spacious apartments based in the needs of the occupier not the investor."

They are looking to get approval for the development early next year.

Looks alright - could've been much worse and with Islington Wharf opposite and the new one on Store Street and then Eastgate, will be nice and dense round here pretty quickly.

I like it...




Following Time & Tide's controlled cycle of growth, the culmination of almost 18 months of work is concluded with the submission of the STORE STREET TOWER in MANCHESTER for planning permission. If approved this magnificent structure designed by the internationally renowned Architects AUSTIN SMITH LORD will provide 330 apartments with a ground floor convenience store and professional offices.

They have taken on board several rounds of public consultation with key stakeholders, design has been refined to benefit the community in general whilst acting as a landmark at the midway between Picadilly and New East Manchester, the junction of Store Street and Great Ancoats may never look the same again.

Not shirking their obligations to develop with the environment in mind plans aimes to achieve a top end of VERY GOOD eco homes rating.

it looks good, but seems a little out of place in this low rise area

I like the CGI skip though, very classy couldn't they find a better photo?

That render makes it look much better, though I'm not entirely won over. Certainly the kind of thing needed in that area, it will help pull the city centre out more into Ancoats (or 'Eastern Gateway' for you fancy folk out there).

Do you think the glass has a blue tint to it or is that all from the sky's reflection? If its not blue, what do you reckon? Its very dark at the bottom.

See you sceptcal Brummies, it was only a matter of time before the curves started making an appearance, we needed the boxes to give our skyline some bulk! Brum already has those, which is why they got some curves earlier!!

Isn't this directly opposite ISIS?

Will make a fabulous and imposing gateway to the city centre!

It should look alright where it is. It has the 21 story Islington Wharf not far from it. Then at the other end of the street about away 200/300 meters I think we have Eastgate? Is that correct or is it the next street over.

Get rid of the Retail Park, (including ILVA-bads employers), and everything like that Die-casting site on Store street and hey presto. A chance for a super-DUPER cluster spreading from Eastgate.

I did this little map to show where the new tower is compared with the other developments. If I've missed any, buzz me and I'll add them. Am planning on doing a bigger one for the city centre with added pics and info. We had one on here but I think we need a new one.
