Our plans for the UK’s second tallest building receives the green light
Manchester City Council has given us the go ahead to build a 66 storey tower, which they cite as “a striking landmark development”. Sitting at just over 200m in height, the residential tower will be the tallest in Manchester and the second tallest in the UK. It forms part of a larger regeneration scheme led by Renaker. The building sits with three other towers in Owen Street, near Deansgate railway station, on land previously used as a car park.
Our proposals provide 1,508 apartments and penthouses together with unrivalled residents’ amenities including lounges, roof garden, short-course swimming pool, indoor tennis court, fully equipped gymnasium, treatment rooms, business facilities, 24/7 concierge and extensive basement parking. Restaurants and cafes will open out onto to an extensive new public square fronting the River Medlock.
Partner David Green commented, “The decision to move ahead with our scheme shows a shared vision for the silhouette of the city and promotes a confidence in our property market. The buildings touch the ground lightly to maximise on urban space and to allow a better connection with the River Medlock, both key elements in providing Manchester residents with a better quality of living in our city centre.”
The Owen Street scheme forms part of the Great Jackson Street Masterplan, which we also developed, and is now on site.
