Although mainly liked, seems to have split opinions on the Manchester Forum, lets see what other peoples thoughts are.

Developer is Dandara.

Height: 125m
Floors:41





Quite like it myself, a nice tidy, modern scraper, if a little uninspiring but adds some much needed bulk to the skyline :)

Well, it's nice, and at 125 pretty high, a few years ago that would have made it the second tallist in Manchester(?), and taller than anything that the BT tower in Brum for example, but, it's a very poor releation to both the Beecham Tower and Eastgate building, so, hmmm.. 6 out of 10.

Maybe of they put some curves or spire or something that wasn't just a(n other) glass box...

I would like for the river to used better, but 100 years + of indutrialisation have but paid to that really, and lets be honest its not the Thames or the Seine is it?

It's OK, they could have done more with it to be honest, but it depends on whether the developer wants to concentrate on interior or exterior - maybe the market is shifting so that the focus is now on the inside?

I will give it 6/10 - tidy, not bad, and the wonder of boxes is that you get the optimum number of apartments (I assume it is apartments?)

8/10 - it's a bit boring. Before Beetham we would have been screaming and wetting ourselves over something like this, but with Eastgate and now this, well.. I want to see more than glass boxes. It's going to be a nice addition to the skyline, eitherway and it makes good use of the space, though I do feel sory for the Residents of The Edge when that's going up besides them.
