Construction to start later this year on the shortest and tallest of the towers!

4 towers ranging in height upto 202m of 43, 48, 52 and 62 floors, which includes the first tower outside of London to breach the 200m mark in the UK

There are a few lower-rise buildings connecting the towers as well as a large public realm

Designed by Ian Simpson, the architect for Manchesters current tallest at 169m, The Beetham Tower. He also has a few other skyscrapers planned around Manchester for the next year or two of which I will share soon





Planning application due February 2016
Decision due June 2016

Subject to market conditions, Renaker is confident construction would start immediately.
Construction would be phased, with Tower 1 (tallest) and Tower 4 (Deansgate) leading, with the other towers following.

The buildings are classic Simpson, although with a slight twist: angled facades. These alternate between light and dark shades. There is also fritt pattern glass on alternate panels.

The scheme has been designed to appeal to both PRS and owner occupiers. Which way it goes will depend on final funding.

Chester Street and the second Greengate plot are still in design and won't be submitted for planning until delivery on this site is secure.

Updates by AC1.

Hundreds of construction workers now employed on this site.

The site has its very own concrete factory:








Now that the crane has been erected at Tower 4 (44 floors, 140m), the core is starting to rise. In a few weeks we anticipate it'll be at ground level:





Where the workers are standing on the left will be part of the underground car park. On top of where they are standing there will be a new riverside plaza:






Meanwhile, at Tower 1 (64 floors, 200.5m), the concrete base is starting to go in. The crane will be erected here in a few weeks, and will reach 225m to become the UK's tallest free-standing crane.



From the General Urban Developments Manchester forum from December 7th. It is high time to move this to Under Construction.
