Hopefully the two towers will be going where the large red warehouse is. Largest tower on the corner. The four other blocks will stretched from the end of the smaller red warehouse to the second tower. Just across the bridge from the Clippers Quay proposal Che.Where is OT will this be Jerbster?

£100m plan for warehouse
Paul R Taylor
PLANS for the £100m regeneration of the southern bank of the Manchester Ship Canal have been unveiled.
A 211-bedroom five-star hotel will be built on the old Victoria Warehouse site beside Manchester United's stadium, along with 423 flats, 165,000sq ft of office space and a 619-space car park.
The complex, between Trafford Wharf Road and Wharfside Way, will create hundreds of jobs and a gateway from Old Trafford into Salford Quays.
Panamint Properties has bought the 2.25acre site from the Transport Development Group with financial backing from Investec Bank. The plans were drawn up by Moss Architects and Dublin-based urban design consultants Deirdre McDermott and Associates.
Deirdre McDermott said: "This is a massive regeneration scheme on a particularly strategic site that will transform this area.
"There is no doubt it will revitalise this area, encourage inward investment and create hundreds of jobs."
Old Trafford regulars will be familiar with the brick-built Victoria Warehouse, which forms the hub of the scheme. The design will include an updated version of the Trafford Park mural, projected on to the façade of the new office tower.
TDG will lease back the site while formal planning permission is sought. It is not yet known when construction work will begin.

By Simon Binns
Manchester United is getting a new next door neighbour — a two million sq ft mixed use development that could open by 2011.
London-based Howard Holdings has unveiled plans for its new Stratum development, which will transform the Victoria Warehouse in Gorse Hill, Trafford. The site, which lies just 150 yards from Old Trafford, was showcased to the public for the first time last week at the Imperial War Museum.
The £180m scheme will comprise six buildings which will house 780 residential apartments, 80,000 sq ft of office space, a 190-bedroom hotel and parking for 700 cars, as well as smaller units for retail and leisure use. Two of the buildings will be large towers, the highest of which could be 37 storeys.
Geoffrey Sparrow, investment director at Howard Holdings, told Crain's the company was in discussions with a number of potential occupiers for the scheme, as well as possible backers. He said that being so close to Manchester United should help the profile and popularity of the development.
“We are talking to hotel operators and could put a three or four-star venue on the site, which should appeal to match day and business visitors,” he said. “The club is an important neighbour and brings a high density of people to the area, so we want to involve them in discussions.”
Sparrow said that Howard Holdings would be solely responsible for developing the site, which it acquired from Oxford-based Panamint Properties. A planning application is due to be submitted by mid-July and Sparrow expects it to be approved by the end of the year, with work starting in 2009 over two phases.
“The first phase should take around 18 months, and the second phase is expected to take two years,” said Sparrow. “We are being flexible about what is delivered as part of each and will have to see how the market is at the time.”
Craig Whitfield, manager of the nearby Playgolf facility, said the development would add to the borough's burgeoning leisure sector. “Does Manchester really need more flats?”
am i right that there's a building called liverpool warehouse and another building called victoria warehouse and they are right next to eachother, both between wharfside way and trafford park road? if i'm right the victoria warehouse is to the right of this pic. i seem to remember glimsing it a few times...Its here isnt it?
Seeing as a 'detailed' render and article about the Stratum proposal has been realeased and published by Crains,
33 storey Gravity is 116m. More like 130m for this one?Nice one Jerb, height estimates anyone?
