A fresh update from Skyscraper City of Manchester city centre.

For those trying to get their bearings, the building with the arched roof is GMEX - the former Central station - and the view is looking northwest.

Courtesy of 'jrb' on SSC - he apologises for the quality of the photo due to haze, but just look at all those cranes.

Taken by our old friend Battenfobs on SSC

A photo taken from down at Castlefields - Manchester has so much variety to offer.

It really is unrecognisable compared to 10 to 15 years ago. Not too much of a stretch to say even 5 years ago.

Just to the right of Deansgate Square South Tower, 64 Stories, there will be 3 other 50+ storey towers built. Elizabeth is currently under construction, and the Blade and the Circle, temporary names, will follow. All Renaker. In-between Deansgate Square West Tower and Beetham Tower, Viadux Tower, 40 Stories, will be built by a just announced partnership between Salboy (Fred Done) and Ask Real Estate. Further to the left, St Michael’s Tower, 40 Stories, will be built by Gary Neville and his consortium.

A further set from the SSC forum courtesy of #jrb

Viskas Shah, MBE.

12th, April.

Click to enlarge if the pictures look small on your device.

Notice how empty the Mancunian Way inner city ring road is.



For those uncertain of the orientation of this picture the dual-carriageway heading into the city is Chester Road which leads into Deansgate where you can see the road curve to the left.


In this view the railway line running top to bottom is the route out to Warrington Central.
