Two neighbouring cities with two different agendas

Dublin had a crane count of 93 across the city centre in September.

https://www.irishtimes.com/business...ches-record-high-of-93-in-september-1.3616834

It's constructing one third the number of residential units of what Manchester is constructing yet at the same time building 3 times the amount of office space.



Can you send some of your house and apartment builders over here please?

There does appear to be a lag in office construction in Manchester, despite record uptake and increasing price per sq m

3.8m sq feet for Dublin.... ahh to be a capital city!

Could Manchester get to 2msq ft per annum over the coming years?

With the thousands of new apartments going up and increase of population it's bound to happen. Depending on the economy ofcourse, I reckon we will see an office boom breaking all records in the next couple of years! One step at a time.

If we have a hard brexit all bets are off
No one has a clue.

Some think it'll be bad. Some think it'll be good because there is pent-up demand and withheld investment from all the uncertainty over the past 2 years. Some think very little will change and it will be business as normal after the first few months as was the case with the referendum.

They are the opinions of many different people I've talked to rather than listening to portions of the media (including the BBC sadly) which are so unhealthily polarised in their opinion of Brexit - half think it'll be armageddon and other think it will a glorious reincarnation of the country.

^^ Balance is restored..... +1. The first one is going up at the Lancastrian, New Cross. Hopefully this sizeable scheme will start to go hyper now, after extensive ground works. It's another one of those developments in a key position, that will make a difference, over and above the development itself:
