MANCHESTER, UK | Project summary

Hi, there didn't seem to be a thread for this city so I thought I would kick one off by blatantly copying the excellent work done by forumer VDB over on SSC (other skyscraper forums are available ).

Stats

Here are the links to a few other Development Updates I've done over the past year or so:

- The number of completed projects (on which construction has stopped, including internal works, and the building or structure is occupied/open) has increased from 4 in November 2015 to 14 now.

- The number of projects under construction (on which construction activity has begun, in the form of diggers, of drills or of cranes etc) has decreased again by -4, from 74 to 70. This is the 4th consecutive fall in construction activity, however the falls have been small - overall activity has decreased from 77 projects U/C in May 2015 to 70 now. Hopefully with all the new planning applications we're seeing come online we'll see a spike in activity soon.

- The number of projects which are 'Shovel Ready' (on which construction has a high chance of beginning by the next Update in three months time) has increased: from 23 in November to 26 now.

- The number of projects which have been approved has raced upwards after waves and waves of planning meetings in both Manchester & Salford. It now stands at 50, up from 36 in November.

- Projects holding a planning application which hasn't yet been approved stands at 47, down from 60 in November. This is due to a large number of approvals.

- The number of "Red" projects (those which are masterplans or visions without a planning application, not including framework applications) has increased from 33 to 42 now. This is mainly due to a wave of new proposals around MediaCityUK and Owen St.

The graph below shows how U/C, planning applications and others have changed over time. Notice how we're beginning to get "planning app inflation". Lots of planning applications are going in but the construction industry lags behind still. This can indicate a number of things: 1) there's a lack of construction resources stopping projects from rising out of the ground. This is a known problem in the UK at the moment... 2) there's still a post-recession hangover of low confidence in developers to deliver schemes....3) we may see an enormous spike in construction activity over the next year.







It's been a very exciting 3 months yet again. However this 3 months has differentiated itself from the other quarters of this recovery/post-recession period by being what we can define as an era of tall buildings. Skyscraper proposals defined Manchester pre-recession, we can only hope that they get built this time round.

Renaker have now made the bold move of proposing what will be Manchester's tallest building if built. Number 1 Owen St will reach 200.5m into the sky, the first regional UK skyscraper to stretch above 200m (even if it is a shy peek above 200m at best!) There will also be several 130m+ buildings surrounding it. We also found out that the Great Northern Warehouse will be redeveloped with a Will Alsop-designed skyscraper sitting alongside it.

At MediaCity, we've seen visuals of "Phase 2" which will be mainly apartment-based, incorporating over 600 new homes in total. Nearby, TH Real Estate lodged plans for up to 800 apartments at Waterfront Quay as part of their Pier 7 scheme. Recently Select Properties and Ask released plans for Embankment West; 694 apartments in buildings up to 32 stories high.

We also saw plans released for Urban & Civic's Princess/Whitworth Corner which gained a planning application this quarter, alongside the 31-storey Oxygen Tower which will provide 343 apartments behind Piccadilly.

It's been a bumper month for office space, with nearly 600,000sqft of office space being approved by Manchester City Council over Lincoln House and 2 & 3 Angel Square, while the City also approved the University's redevelopment of the Owen's Park campus.

Adelphi Wharf, phase 1 of Bruntwood's "Circle Square" project on the old BBC site off Oxford Rd and the Ordsall Chord have all started construction this quarter, however overall construction activity decreased yet again. There needs to be a real push to get schemes which have planning approval starting construction as there's clearly a block in the system at the moment, whatever it may be.

Apartments

Another incredible three months for apartments.

- There are currently 1,901 apartments U/C in the City Centre
- There are currently 1,592 apartments U/C in Central Salford
- There are currently 885 apartments U/C in Salford Quays
- There are currently 146 apartments U/C in Hulme
TOTAL U/C: 4,095


- There are currently 6,127 apartments with Planning Applications OR U/C in the City Centre
- There are currently 6,245 apartments with Planning Applications OR U/C in Central Salford
- There are currently 3,064 apartments with Planning Applications OR U/C in Salford Quays
- There are currently 983 apartments with Planning Applications OR U/C in Hulme
TOTAL: 19,614


The graph below shows number of apartments U/C or holding planning apps over time.

Although the City Zone currently has the most U/C, there are more apartments holding planning apps in Central Salford which indicates that the focus for apartment construction in the future will be here. There's been a spike in apartments holding planning applications in Salford Quays in the past few months as a result of Pier 7 at Waterfront Quay, which will provide up to 800 apartments here. As Central Manchester and Central Salford heat up, Salford Quays too is beginning to warm, although still lags behind its neighbours in terms of apartments U/C. This will change in the near future with X1's enormous new scheme at MediaCityUK which will provide over 1,000 new apartments (phase 1 is now U/C). However Salford Quays is unlikely to catch up with the city centre/Salford Central in the foreseeable future as they each have over 4,000 apartments in planning.

TOTAL PIPELNE: 2,520,200sqft

Apartment Heat Maps

I wanted to explore which areas of the city were experiencing the highest activity in terms of new apartments U/C and proposed and see whether this correlated with average property prices in those areas and/or increases in property prices.

The map below shows apartments U/C in each district of the city.

The North western fringe (Salford through to Victoria) is clearly seeing the highest amount of apartments U/C at the moment. In Victoria, the numbers are totally dominated by the Angelgate scheme, which is providing 434 apartments to this area. However in Central Salford and Greengate, construction is dominated by several megaschemes: Renaker at Two Greengate, City Suites and Renaker at Wilburn St.







The map below shows all apartments - those U/C, those approved, those holding planning applications AND those not holding planning applications (IF number of apartments is specified, with some schemes it simply states that "over 3,000 apartments will be provided", these vague schemes are simply not counted.

As with U/C, Central Salford and Greengate are still booming into the forseeable future. Many apartments in Central Salford will be provided by Middlewood Locks and Adelphi Wharf as well as smaller schemes, whilst in Greengate promises of 1,190 apartments along Trinity Way, Norton Court as well as rumours of a Renaker "One Greengate" project (to be revealed on Thursday) mean Greengate will remain a hive for apartment activity into the future.

The difference between the U/C and pipeline maps pops up in Castlefield/Peterloo. A low amount of construction is evident here at the moment, however into the future this area is promised a lot of major projects including Allied London's Trinity Fields, providing 3,000 apartments in several utopian skyscrapers around the river and Trinity Way, St John's at the old Granada site and Renaker at Owen St. This area will be home to all of Manchester's tallest buildings and is an area to watch into the future.

Similarly Ordsall, which currently has 0 apartments U/C has 774 proposed for it. This area, sandwiched between Salford Quays, the city centre, Central Salford, Middlewood Locks, Cornbrook and Hulme has immense potential and, coupled with cheap property prices, will be another area to watch in the coming years.








In order to correctly assess which areas have potential into the future it's important to study property prices.

The map below details how Spinningfields and Castlefield/Peterloo are by far the city's most expensive property hotspots - each averaging over £1m according to Zoopla's ZED index. Piccadilly too will soon top £200,000 average prices, meaning the "traditional" city centre will all see prices of over £0.2 million.

Developers are currently concentrating on Central Salford and Greengate due to its astoundingly low property prices. However, as Greengate (which had a similar price to the rest of Salford just 2 years ago) has shown, this won't last for long.








Finally, the below map is almost an invert of the previous (average property prices) map. This one shows property price increases in the year to Jan 30, 2016.

Central Salford and Ordsall, which have the lowest property prices of the entire city, are the areas which are becoming more expensive the fastest - with 7.6% increases across the M3 postcode in the previous 12 months. This is another reason that Ordsall is one to watch - an area which has low property prices, an unbeatable location, gigantic yields and very little proposals for apartments unlike her neighbours.







- The average price for a property across all Central Manchester districts at the end of January 2016 was £346,270.

- Excluding the enormous skewing effect that M2 (Spinningfields & Castlefield have), this comes to £156,728.

- The average increase in property price across all CentManc districts comes to 5.8%

- Projecting into the future this means that the average price for a property in January 2017 will be £165,818 with currently cheap districts such as Central Salford and Ordsall catching up to the rest.

Tall buildings

I don't think Manchester needs any introduction on tall proposals after the quarter we've had. An astounding number of new proposals for 100m+ buildings arguably takes us up to the total we had pre-recession. Here they all are, listed categorically in terms of height.

Firstly, here are the current tallest buildings:

1) Beetham (169m)
2) CIS (118m)
3) City Tower (107m)
4) New Wakefield St (106m)
5) Arndale Tower (90m)
6) Town Hall (87m)
7) Manchester One/Portland Tower (80m)
8) CJC (80m)
9) 3 Hardman St (75m)
Source: Wikipedia




Next, here are the tallest buildings after all the projects which are currently U/C or at shovel ready have completed (if you want, the "Near Future" talls):

1) Beetham (169m)
2) CIS (118m)
3) City Tower (107m)
4) New Wakefield St (106m)
5) Angel Gardens (106m)
6) No. 1 Spinningfields (92m)
7) Arndale Tower (90m)
8) One Greengate (88m)
9) Town Hall (87m)
10) X1 MediaCity (86m)
11) Cambridge St (83m)
12) Water St (82m)
13) Manchester One/Portland Tower (80m)
14) CJC (80m)
15) 3 Hardman St (75m)




Next, here are Manchester's talls after all the proposals and U/C projects have completed. 2022 perhaps? Or "Far Future"

1) Great Jackson 1 (201.5m)
2) Beetham (169m)
3) St John’s Place (165m)
4) Great Jackson 2 (158m)
5) Trinity Fields 1 (152m)
6) Great Jackson 3 (141m)
7) St John’s Tower 2 (132m)
8) River St Tower (125m)
9) Great Jackson 4 (122m)
10) CIS (118m)
11) 10-12 Whitworth St (117m)
12) Norton Court (110.3m)
13) St John’s Tower 3 (109m)
14) City Tower (107m)
15) New Wakefield St (106m)
16) Angel Gardens (106m)
17) Oxygen Tower (103m)
18) Trinity Fields 2 (100m)
19) Trinity Fields 3 (96m)
20) Axis (93m)
21) Middlewood Locks Plot I (93m)
22) No. 1 Spinningfields (92m)
23) Arndale Tower (90m)
24) One Greengate (88m)
25) Town Hall (87m)
26) X1 MediaCity (86m)
27) Cambridge St (83m)
28) Trinity Fields 4 (83m)
29) St John’s Tower 4 (83m)
30) St John’s Tower 5 (83m)
31) Water St (82m)
32) Manchester One/Portland Tower (80m)
33) CJC (80m)
34) Astley & Byrom House (77m)
35) 3 Hardman St (75m)

Decent inner city plot filler proposed yesterday:










How it fits into the surrounding St George's/Disarelle (District-around-Ellesmere St) area. There are lots of developments proposed along this stretch at the moment, all of them very high quality (will probably do a general update for this area soon);

Wow, a lot of good stuff going on in Manchester, and great to have a presence here on SSP. Hopefully we have some forumers who can update us on status with images.

Yes, I'll try to update it every now and then but it would be good if there are any other SSP forumers in the area who can add some more details.

On the other side of Oxford Street/Peter Street there is much more significant progress. The reinforcement for the 1CC northbound track is now in place for some distance into the stop area.

Similarly the 2CC southbound reinforcement has been extended south onto the concrete slab.

This afternoon they were concreting the space between the 1CC northbound and 2CC southbound lines.

There is also rail in place on 2CC northbound now towards the southern end of the square.

As Train Guard told us a new footpath linking Mosley Street to the library side of St Peters Square is now in use giving us a close up view of the diamond crossing.

The diversion of pedestrians onto the new footpath has allowed work to start on extending the 2CC northbound curve into Princess Street.

At the junction of Lower Mosley Street and Peter Street Oxford Street they seemed to be preparing the newly laid track for final surfacing in readiness no doubt for moving road traffic onto the southern lane so hat the more northerly track can be laid.

Though I've been to Manchester a few times yet don't know much about the city's growth economically, it seems a quite popular city if we're seeing all of these proposals. At least some of which will certainly materialise.

In terms of proximation to get-aways, relatively rural areas of W. Yorkshire and northern Lancashire are very close. A train ride up to Carlisle (for those who like small cities to get away to) is lovely. (did I not mention the Lakes District?)
But for the more urban-minded, as we all know, Virgin high-speeds to and from London are not all that uncommon.

Hi, yes, trains to London are pretty frequent, 3 trains per hour from 0600 until 1900 and then 2 trains per hour until just before midnight. Likewise there are also frequent services to other cities around the UK.

The train services to/from London are not genuine High Speed Rail, maximum speed on the line is only 125mph, the trip takes 2h10 for the 200 mile trip. Like with any long distance rail trip in the UK I'd advise anybody looking to make the trip to book tickets as far in advance as you can. If you just turn up on the day and buy a ticket for the next train it can be hideously expensive but if you book even one or two days in advance it will be much cheaper and a few weeks in advance it can be really quite cheap indeed.

A couple of construction pics amongst a few others I took while in the city briefly yesterday. There's a lot of work going on in the city centre with various new builds and work to extend the tram system through the city streets.

































It was soon time to head back to Piccadilly Station and get my train home...

Approval expected for £1bn Manchester Airport transformation
PNW: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news....mMGAKwo8.dpuf

Manchester City Council is set to give planning consent to the £1bn upgrade of Manchester Airport, which will see the demolition of Terminal 1, and a 900,000 sq ft extension to Terminal 2.

The Manchester Airport Transformation Programme is aiming to increase capacity from 20 million to 30 million annual passengers by 2025.

The programme is made up of 60 enhancements, including the expansion and reconfiguration of Terminal 2 to become the airport’s main terminal building, along with further improvements of Terminal 3 to cater for increased demand and an expanding flight schedule.

The proposals have been recommended for approval at Manchester City council’s planning committee meeting on 3 March.

The architect is Pascall & Watson, while Arcadis has been appointed project manager.

Plans include:

- The 900,000 sq ft extension to the North West of Terminal 2 to extend passenger processing facilities
- Extension to upper forecourt
- Additional 2,590 car parking spaces in a seven-storey extension to the existing multi-storey car park, alongside a new seven-storey car park for - 4,236 vehicles
- Reconfiguring roads
- Associated landscape works
- Demolition of Terminal 1 and associated multi-storey car park, with a loss of 2,006 car parking spaces
- New landing piers

The airport has three terminals. Terminal One was opened in 1962 and has undergone significant expansion and redevelopment in the intervening years, most recently in 2007 to 2009. Terminal Two Opened in 1993, along with the railway station, and has also undergone some redevelopment. Terminal Three, originally the domestic terminal, was opened in 1989 and benefited from significant investment with a major extension opening in 1998.

The first phase of the Terminal Two transformation is due to start in April 2016 and complete by the end of March 2022.

As part of the £1bn campus redevelopment, Manchester University will be creating a new park by closing and pedestrianising road which currently looks like this:




Much needed, and should focus a bit of attention on the University's main building:

And plans just announced for the expansion of the largest of the city centre rail stations over the next decade.

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post131403974







The Chancellor has announced funding for the £1.6bn redevelopment of Piccadilly station, including:

- Moving Chorlton St coach station to the station (and closing Chorlton St).
- Introducing retail in the undercroft, underneath the station (opening it all up)
- Moving Metrolink to the north of the station
- Building a new underground link for HS3 to run to Leeds through Manchester
- Building a new "Grand Arcade" to rival Kings Cross-St Pancras linking the current station with the new HS2 station which will be to the north (above Sheffield St).
- Getting the station ready for HS2's arrival

HS2 arriving ~2032 is the final piece of the jigsaw apparently, meaning we can expect most of this to happen "within the next decade".

More details and better renders to be released soon.

Now, trains wind their way through Central Salford's tall buildings on their way into Victoria station.

The unused section of track in the centre of the viaduct in the photo below will soon be re-filled with rail tracks as part of the expansion of Salford Central station. Three new platforms are being built alongside the existing station, and further down the viaduct is being altered this weekend to enable the Ordsall Chord to be built - to link trains from Victoria with the city centre's south side train stations at Piccadilly, Deansgate and Oxford Road.
