Manchester Skyscraper Branded As Aggressive

Skyscraper scheme branded as aggressive

Both Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs are backing  a development of a multi-million pound skyscraper scheme in Manchester City Centre. The scheme will offer a five star hotel , 21-storey tower and luxury apartments but has been branded damaging to Manchester’s history.

Historic England has slammed the scheme stating that the planned high-rise construction will dwarf important buildings and involve tearing down an important pub. They believe the city deserves better and their application to the city council “shows how aggressively the proposed buildings would jar against the grand civic buildings which define this part of Manchester”. source The Manchester Evening News

The scheme of 700,000 square feet will include 200-bed 5 star hotel, 153 apartments, 135,000 square foot of Grade A offices and a synagogue.

The site will also include 30,000 square feet of retail and leisure space, including two new sky bars/restaurants, in the 31 storey Number One St Michael’s, while Number Two St Michael’s will be a 21-storey office tower.

Historic England stated that the design, height and colour of the development on Jackson’s Row will dominate the Deansgate and Peter Street conservation area and “dwarf the nationally-important” Central Library and “Grade 1 listed Town Hall”
