Hello, just thought I'd share my (rather sad) attempt to keep track of stuff proposed, being built or built over 90 metres in height. Happy for people to let me know if I've missed anything. I thought it might come in useful to keep track of what's going on.

All looks good to me. I’d probably get rid of Ramada as the site is being sold and a new developer will likely change it. Same with Trinity. Up to you. A great indication of what’s to come though.

Ah yes thanks. I think I have Downing down already as 'First Street South', but will change the description. Regarding Renaissance and Trinity; yeah I think you're right, I'll get rid of them - it's knowing when to let go and move on.

This is really helpful... I'v gone one further and am in the process of doing this for the whole country excluding pre app developments... I need to go out haha. If anyone is interested to compare to other cities, with links to all relevant threads I'l get adding all the Manchester schemes!

UK & Ireland (Excl. London) Tall Building Index - 100m+

I'l spend Sunday sorting the list but feel free to post on that thread. I also plan to add all completed.... but that can wait for now haha

No probs, although my table doesn't provide everything you need (whether it's in Salford in Mcr, the link to the relevant thread, etc). I will try and add those bits in and update it.

I think that’s a mock skyscraper proposal by our very own GJMarshy.

So not serious until one of us wins the Euromillions sadly!

I have updated the 100m+ thread, using @SteKnight 's work above. Fair to say Manchester are winning this game...

Forgive me if this question/ request has been asked before, or if I'm posting it on the wrong thread:

Once a planning application has been submitted for a project, is there a way for someone to then post the direct link to that application in its development thread title/ banner on here, or make it prominent in some other way, so as to enable easy access? It's always so good to directly go to the planning link, and fishing back over scores of previous pages to find it can be a pain.

Hi CV

I agree this is definitely a good idea. In the meantime, feel free to use my development map to access planning applications for the various developments:

A very good effort by PNW. A lot of work has gone into the article. Not listed all the under construction developments, but not that far off. A good read.

We get a mention.

You've probably seen this posted a few times recently... I'v had time on my hands haha. I'm now adding info to this list. Much of the Manchester tower details are using @SteKnight work.


I plan to add the following for all 70 towers in the table, Manchester & Salford are contributing 31 of them! Thought I'd post here if anyone wants to message or post about details or errors. I will be slowly going through each one over the next month anyway.

Also if anyone has a good image of a completed scheme and wouldn't mind it being used, message me. Credit will be put under the image.

Cheers.

Hello, just thought I'd share my (rather sad) attempt to keep track of stuff proposed, being built or built. I've just included below stuff over 100m, but my full list includes stuff above 70m (about 100 rows in total). There's probably a load of dubious mistakes/inaccuracies in there; happy for people to let me know if I've missed anything. I thought it might come in useful for anyone struggling to keep track of what's going on.

Edit: I've added buildings in the 90-100m range. (Beware; I may not have got the Portugal Street Framework buildings correct - still struggling to understand that one.)
