Going to get some great views, from all over town, of those towers, just like we do now of those at Deansgate Square. Always a big plus.

Renaker need someone to help them with urban design.
it's an interesting point, we do mention the streetscape around the towers but it tends to be largely ignored, probably due to the scale and pace of each development they announce. The Blade and Cylinder are perhaps going to be ok, facing into a central space area, with Elizabeth/Victoria framing the open U shape? Perhaps that space is good.... these towers, not super convinced, they could be windswept and a bit too stark, not human in scale, lacking canopies. I would imagine approaching one of these monsters would be somewhat intimidating, a podium or staggered height approach to create a sense of human scale might have been better. Not just 4 towers plonked down.

I did note the open columns, perhaps that will work?
