Major new research centre at the University of Manchester on the southern fringes of the city centre.

Quote:
Business Desk Morth West.

Sir Henry Royce Institute

The Government is to invest £229m in the development of advanced materials and a new centre of excellence for the life and physical sciences as part of its modern Industrial Strategy.




Included in the investment is £126m in grants for the Sir Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials, supporting the creation of a world-leading research centre at the University of Manchester, with satellite centres at the Universities of Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool, Cambridge, Oxford and Imperial College.

Set to open in 2019, the £150m Royce Institute will encompass nine key areas of materials research including graphene and proposed research areas will be grouped into four themes - energy, engineering, functional and soft materials.

Located at the heart of the University of Manchester's Engineering Campus, the 16,000 sq m building will house world-leading materials scientists, equipment and collaborative space for industrial and academic engagement.

It is believed that, at 46 metres high, the Royce building will be the tallest on the University of Manchester campus.

It will be located next to the Alan Turing Building on Upper Brook Street, in close proximity to the Schools of Physics and Chemistry, as well as the £61m National Graphene Institute (NGI) and the £350m Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD), which is currently under construction.

The government also announced a £103m investment in a new national centre of excellence for life and physical sciences at the Rosalind Franklin Institute in Oxford.

Business and Energy Secretary Greg Clark said: “Research and development has a proven track record of making our economy more competitive and creating new products, services and better ways of doing business. For these reasons, we’ve placed the UK’s strengths in science, research and innovation at the core of our modern Industrial Strategy."

Finally it looks as though demolition has started on site at Landmark. Last week an app went in for demolition of this building with the condition that the building must start construction once demolition was complete.

The F line will also now start running at 3.19am every 20 minutes until 6am (when the regular F takes over every 10 minutes) in order to serve late night clubbers and early morning flights from Manchester Airport.

Oh, one more small one on the subject of the airport. Manchester airport has recently hit 25m annual passengers and moved into the European top 20 airports for the first time, with a few new international routes planned to commence later this year. Chinese investment to significantly increase the capacity of the airport and improve existing terminals has been secured in the last year.

Record January puts Manchester Airport in Europe’s top 20


"Manchester Airport is now ranked among Europe’s top 20 airports in terms of passenger numbers after achieving its busiest January on record.
Last month saw 1,665,943 people set off for the airport’s 210 destinations as North West holidaymakers opted to ditch the cold in favour of warmer climes.
The figure represents a year-on-year increase of 11.3% and brings Manchester Airport’s rolling annual passenger total to 25,864,24 .
As a result, Manchester has now replaced Stockholm Airport in the list of Europe’s 20 busiest, ahead of airports in Lisbon, Helsinki, Athens, Vienna, Brussels and other capitals.
Manchester experienced particularly strong growth in long-haul traffic, with overall numbers up 13% during the last 12 months.
Discussing January’s passenger figures, which mark the airport’s 34th consecutive month of growth, CEO Ken O’Toole said: “To enter the top 20 airports of Europe is a significant milestone and sees us rub shoulders with the leading gateways on the continent, in terms of total passenger numbers, the mix of destinations available and the aircraft operating on those routes.
"It is pleasing that growth has been delivered across the board, with all categories of carriers continuing to recognise the strength of our catchment area, which stretches from North Wales in the west to Humberside in the east and up to the Scottish Borders.“
He continued: "A growing number of international visitors are also looking to Manchester Airport as their gateway not just to the North but the UK as a whole.
“As 2017 continues we aim to bring on more long haul routes, in order to plug the 22m people in our catchment area to key global destinations, either to unlock investment and economic opportunities for businesses, or for far flung family holidays for leisure passengers.“
In January, aircraft movements were up by 17.4% with nearly 14k planes taking off and landing on the airport’s two runways.
Cargo, meanwhile, rose year on year by 10% with 8,133 tonnes carried".

Holidays to Cayo Santa Maria will start next year, with flights beginning on May 5 2018.

Adding to Varadero, Holguin and Cayo Coco, the announcement means Thomas Cook is the first UK tour operator to offer holidays to all four of major Cuban tourist resorts.

Cook’s year-on-year bookings to Cuba are currently up 9% for summer 2017.
Cuba is expecting a big rise in tourism after the communist country thawed relations with the USA.

Customers will be able to choose from a range of nine all-inclusive hotels with Thomas Cook, Signature from Thomas Cook or Airtours.
The resort of Cayo Santa Maria hosts beach parties, festivals, water sports and has bars dotted along the 13km beachfront on the northern coast.
Catamaran tours around the Jardines del Rey islands are also available for holidaymakers to look for exotic fish, uninhabited mini islands and flamingos.
Sea temperatures are in the high 20s year round and air temperatures between 20C and 30C.

Thomas Cook’s leading prices for a four star resort start at £979 per person all-inclusive for seven nights flying from Manchester. Four star plus is available from £1,009 per person for seven nights."

Launching on June 23rd, the service complements the current offer of five flights a week to Jeddah.

Passengers can now fly direct to Saudi Arabia seven days a week.
The flight is scheduled to depart Mondays and Fridays.

The route will operate direct to the capital on Saudia’s state of the art Dreamliner with its 24 business class seats and 274 in economy.

It will offer passengers the chance to connect onto the airline’s extensive network of Middle Eastern and Asian services.

Saudia Manager for the UK, Fikry Altowayan, said: “We are excited with this newest addition to Saudia’s growing 83 destinations.

“We renew our commitment to our passengers by providing easy access, comfort, competitive pricing and convenient travel to the capital as well as more options in flying to further destination either via Jeddah or Riyadh.
“Manchester Airport is ideally situated to serve as Saudia’s gateway to cater to our guests from the North.”

Manchester Airport is the UK’s third largest airport with more than 25.8m annual passengers.
It has more than 210 destinations served by 70 airlines.
Stephen Turner, commercial director for Manchester Airport, said: “It’s great to see Saudia increasing their presence at Manchester Airport.

“The new flights to Riyadh will offer business and leisure passengers alike direct access to the Saudi capital as well as fantastic onward connections and I’m sure they’ll prove hugely popular.”

Another project just starting, this one involves demolishing the original set of long-running British TV soap opera series 'Coronation St' which has been on air continuously since 1961.

Looks like groundworks have now started on site at South Village



The filming moved a few years ago to Media City in Salford a couple of miles outside the city centre where a replica set is in situ.

Currently the count is at 10 buildings of >100 metres under construction or at groundworks stage in Manchester. It's thought this may well be the highest figure for any non-capital city in Europe.

Groundworks now starting at Downtown, update by Stopfordian Dreamer.

Ordsall is beginning to be a hive of activity now, its close proximity to the city centre and Salford Quays is being realised by developers it seems. There are now nearly 2,000 apartments in the pipeline for the area.

The proposals will be delivered on behalf of Far East Consortium and Manchester City Council and involve a bookend 41-storey tower to act as a landmark and entice development further into North Manchester.

Quality of photos isn't the best, currently trying to source higher quality shots.

I'd image this will be more the luxury end than student accommodation scheme. Looking at there previous work they generally give good floor height and this has a large podium/retail space below with double height. My guess, I don't think this will be far off the 140m mark.
