Looks fantastic, I wish they'd pack it in with adding "court" onto names though, it sounds so underwhelming

The difference in land values between one side of Trinity Way and the other must be enormous. 130m towers on one side, low-rise car dealerships, houses and wasteland on the other!

It shows you what a barrier major roads in central areas can be. This is why the Co-Op were so keen to break up the dual carriageway that would have been running through 'NOMA'.

When I get a better quality render I'll add that in instead.

I did a Norton Court photoshop in October so I thought I'd add Exchange Court to the image (10min botch job)

The rush to build these enormous low rent PRS schemes is worrying. We could easily see Manchester dominated by appalling tat in 5 years.

Greengate and the bottom end of Regent Road are not going to be pretty.

You think Norton Court and the new proposal are tat? Why?

This is another tower up the road (Gore Street/Chapel Street) also by OMI Architects. An indication as to what the gold anodised aluminium may look like.


View from Chapel St

Norton Court isn't great, it's like they've tried to do too much and have ended up with a right mishmash of a design. Fingers crossed it will look better once it's towering over that part of town...

Great to see the heights increasing, 130m is pretty awesome! It's been mentioned before but Greengate will have a cityscape almost of it's own. The design for EC is quite plain but should still look OK in 10/20 years time.

The only negative for me is the colour, very Arndale tower, which is awful. I think the grey/silver tones of the original design for 1 Greengate would actually work better on this one.

Positive signs for 2016 for Manchester though, it's almost a 100m+ tower/week!

I cannot believe there is another tower proposal, it feels unreal now. Keep it going Manchester!

Design looks decent. Everything will depend on the cladding I'd say.

Yes, and they're joined by One Regent and Wilburn Basin on the tatpile.
It's not unusual to see bad architecture getting built here but when it's over 100m, more stringent design standards should apply.
When it's a relief that new buildings will at least be obscured by other new buildings (I'm looking at you One Greengate), I think it suggests a quality issue.

Why though? Hardly constructive criticism is it.

Tat?

New tower > Surface car parks.

In my opinion, its better, so I wont complain. I will happily watch my city grow out of the asphalt.

Manchester has only seen one tower built near this height in its existence. If you're a fan of tall buildings, I'd have thought you would be quite pleased.

The hard to please crew really are completely

At first glance I liked the general profile of it but gold cladding, not for me thanks. If my reading of the image is correct then it looks like it's c.50% of the external surface area. Given how One Greengate looks it's hard to trust this will turn out well. I'm hoping a clearer render will allay those fears given the promising Owen St from Renaker.

The asphalt ones are the good ones It's the puddle riddled rubble surface ones that I can't wait to see consigned to history first - but yep agree

Not really sure how Wilburn st gets labelled as tat, it's a solid development and looks great.

Indeed, there's nothing wrong with it. Passed it Yesterday. For it's location it's fine. The cladding/brick work certainly isn't disappointing. A good solid, no messing about, non fussy, tower.
