Sex on legs.

I'm really loving some of the creative brick builds being proposed for Manchester at the minute. To me it shows a rise in standards.

Before, where we may have got shitty panel clad buildings, we're now getting something a bit more sophisticated.

Beautiful, exactly the design that our city needs and deserves.


Also, Axis tower - 125m?! A mistake surely?!

Yeah. A lot of those heights are incorrect.

I hope there is plenty of green landscaping that will absorb the "Manchester Rain" in between these nice buildings. Also hope the river Medlock is allowed to feature decently at the back of Circle Square.
A nice balance of concrete, cars, green & water...now it is the time to consider a holistic approach to such a grand design...

Well, it's daytime, so we know who it isn't.

One word amazing! Loving the density of that whole site. Its projects like this that we should be pushing for to fill our major cities, not only in central areas but also in parts of the inner city.

Totally agree.

This is a very busy area...and this would make it even more so.
Horrible, empty plot at the moment (necessary of course).

Everything about Circle Square is just simply amazing!

I'm glad this plot sat empty until this proposal came along and wasn't filled with any plastic or random clad Leeds-looking buildings.

Manchester is getting what it deserves!
