Damn. That screen grab WoW!
That Co-op is great, bigger selection that most - I'm there nearly everyday! I viewed some 2 bedroom apartments in Vox, generally really nice (similar to the Trilogy across the road that lived in up till August last year) but the wraparound balconies on the corner units are genuinely huge! Views from the rooftop are fantastic too. Wish I'd got some photos...
I do find that corner on the right a bit odd with how bare it is, a different colour/texture to the cladding or some climbing plants might've helped, but otherwise a striking building from that angle.

Here's hoping they spruce up Cornbrook tram stop with all this redevelopment in the area. It's very exposed and quite a miserable experience waiting for a tram when the wind's up or with moderate rain. Even some panelling on top of the low wall there, on both sides would help I imagine.
Shame not taller......

Varying heights (more than the 15/14) would have been preferable.

The Cornbrook development in Manchester city centre has just had its crowning glory completed - a jogging track on the 15th floor, with superb views over the city.

The installation compromises of a stunning CONICA spray applied polymeric track, alongside a Dorset mix resin ground gravel surround. The two surfaces complement each other perfectly.
