2-4 Chester Road | 61/38 m | 21/12 fl | U/C

There he is!



Just spoke to the planning officer! 2-4 was submitted yesterday!

The planning officer hasn't looked through the plans yet! However, I was told the buildings are roughly the same height as the previous designs! Don't quote me on that! No doubt Subtract will correct me if I'm wrong!?

Plans should be made public within 2 to 3 weeks?

Back to Caw!

The Anglo / Irish developers behind 2-4!

http://www.howardholdingsplc.com/hh/jvent/why.html

I'm sure some of you will remember the discussion I over heard in the planning office last year? Irish chap saying he'd heard about a proposed tower near 2-4 and had the council any information? Howard Holdings maybe?

interesting. Not sure if I like them. The smaller one has become a box but the angles and design of the larger one would be amazing to look at once its built.

Another fantastic building for Manc!

More glass, sloping roofs, height and another great design!

Complements BT aswell!

Very nice Subtract!

Chester Road Could well become an accident hot spot!

Keep you eyes on the road!

How tall is the main building?

no its mostly because of the perspective it looks like a box but its still a diamond sort of shape, because the second building has been made a lot bigger aswell it will distort it

only thing i dont like on these renders is you cannot see between the buildings where they point out at each other

The text on the site will be amended soon, took ages just to get approval for that but theyre pushing for it to be on site before the end of the year, should be good to see it under construction the same time as Beetham

This will be a great addition to the gateway into the city and go well with whats coming in the future...

But I do wonder, why does Manc get the 10 and 17 storey version while Leeds gets the 27 and 52 storey version?
