It does look a bit daft - green though, so I suppose that's OK.
How can you say that? It's his designed by his majesty Sir Norman of Foster (don't ask me how the design differs from any other wind turbine in the world...)

Exactly, how can you really differentiate between wind turbines. It's a bit cheely of Sir Norm to use the term design at all.

Thanks for the pics Highriser. Countryside Properties are getting on with phase II of their SportCityLiving development on the other side of the canal. Alas, no images as yet.

Cheers Craig - by the looks of the images on the PDF (haven't had the time to read it yet) this has been put together fairly recently (Beetham looks almost complete).
The BBC move is more likely but I hold up hope, as always, that this project can get off the ground.
Bets on this happening anyone?

Didn't you favour Wigan over LCCC's move here though Isaac? It already has the following:
* The City of Manchester Stadium - Originally a 38,000 seater athletics stadium, it was converted into a football ground after the Commonwealth Games. It is now the home of Manchester City FC and has an increased capacity of 48,000.
* The Regional Athletics Arena - A £3.5m 6,000 seater stadium constructed around the Commonwealth Games warm up track and training area. The arena will be used for domestic and international athletics meetings. The stadium is also the base for the famous Sale Harriers club. Click here to download the City of Manchester Athletics: The Future brochure (PDF file).
* The National Squash Centre – it has seven squash courts and world class facilities. The centre is the new home of England Squash, the sport’s national governing body.
* The Manchester Tennis Centre – consisting of 6 indoor courts, six outdoor courts and a junior court.
But yes, not quite 'sportscity' as yet.
I just hope that the Simpson project goes ahead irrespective of the Texas 'old em stomached persons.
