It appears Manchester is becoming crane city... the Evening News has highlighted 19 ongoing projects. I just hope that enough people can afford to buy/rent the apartments that appear to be part and parcel of the office developments, and that businesses will take to these new offices.
as we don't have enough construction work going on in Manchester, I note that what appears to be a rubber-stamping exercise will take place this week in the City Council Planning Committe meeting with another hotel to be built in the city centre (on Charles Street where there's a small car park, opposite Circle Square / or for the infrquent Manchester visitor where the old BBC building was)
