I've listed everything I can remember, arranged roughly by area.

Southern City Centre
Beetham - 2
River City and surrounding projects - 4
St Georges - 3
Vie - 3
GN Tower - 2
Eagle Star House - 2
University Car Park Cambridge St - 2
MRI Superhospital - 5
Aurora - 1

Western City Centre/Greengate
CJC - 3
Spinningfields NCP - 1
Tempus - 1
Spectrum - 2
red ones near Spectrum - 2
John Rylands Library - 1
GMEN - 1
Rosetti Phase Two - 1

Northern City Centre/Piccadilly
Skyline Central - 3
Site next to Skyline Central - 2
Royal Mills/surrounds - 3
Piccadilly Place - 4

Issa Quay - 1
Piccadilly Car Park - 1
IVLA? - 1

Salford Quays

This gives us 49 in town and 56 including the quays. Phenomenal.

A few more than this I'm sure, what are they people?

Ones to expect soon:

3 & 4 Hardman Square
Chancery Place
Probably a new Green Quarter one for Jefferson Place
Erie Basin Tower
40 Spring Gardens
More at spectrum
Sarah Tower perhaps
Pall Mall

Residence on the way up, so almost 66 ?
How do I post a picture from my phone on this forum? Do i need to follow certain steps?

I’d say the easiest way would be to download the Tapatalk app, and post on the forum through that
Fair enough.

Any idea if other cities keep to similar parameters?

There’s 5 at their Commonwealth Athletes Village, which we wouldn’t have counted.
e.g. we’re not counting the 3 at The Christie, similar distance from the city centre.
Presumably we won’t be counting the cranes for the new Arena either?

But Brum is doing well.
(Just as Mcr seems to be transitioning)

FYI, Liverpool are sat with 5 cranes at the moment, with not very many expected in the future either, abysmal.
Any idea how many are expected at Everton's new stadium yet?

and Leeds is 18 at the moment but are predicting over 40 by the middle of the year. I wonder if anyone can shed light on which parts of their cities these crane counts refer to, 41 for Birmingham is impressive if it's just Birmingham city centre. Using the latest figures Birmingham leads, Manchester next then Leeds then Liverpool.
Yeh good number for Brum at the mo.
7 at their Commonwealth Games village I think
Are we writing London off as a rogue state these days?

Who's building the 150m?
The Octagon tower, which is decent
