Great pics - always nice to see more office buildings going up, as well as the Resi's. City Centre is really pushing out.

8 First Street 2nd crane by PJ H, on Flickr

Second crane currently being constructed. Apologies for the poor quality, but I only have an iPhone and it is a grey, grey day.

Decent designs. Now let's bring in quality retail please. No more kebab shops!!! The location is perfect for Whole Food Market. The city needs it.

Sorry PB. I don't think this location will support much more than the Sainsbury's Local that's recently opened. There just isn't the footfall here for such an outlet. That [I]might[i/] change once the humungous towers on Owen St have been built but until then...

But hey we have Poggenpohl showroom plus C.P Hart on Deansgate. If people pay £30K for a kitchen surely there's a market for upscale food store?

It'd be nice to see some Ancoats style coffee places or something.

There's not huge footfall up there but a decent amount of retail.

A few more pics from this afternoon. Very difficult to get both cranes with a phone camera!

Steel structure going up yesterday and today, not sure what it is for. Can't see a concrete core, maybe this is for the lifts?

There's a concrete shortage in GM, they might be using steel instead?
