Design inspiration from the Costa at Liverpool one!

By Rainbow

Are we really going to be able to sustain all these skyscrapers?There was an announcement of another one at Angel meadows of 41 storeys, very close to the one under construction at NOMA. There are a few in the pipeline for Trinity way, plus St Johns and Owen street,as well as St Michaels.

Costa Liverpool one comes to mind .

This is disappointing from Allied London. They talk about high quality design but looking at what they are doing with some of St John’s don’t seem to be delivering. Certainly the original concept stuff looks nothing like these square unimaginative glass towers. #notworldclassdesign

Hulme Crescents for the 2030’s

It’s improved but it’s still underwhelming. I’m surprised they gave a prestige project like this, and the most prominent building in the city to such a work-a-day firm of architects. You don’t get the impression they’ve strived to create something the city will be proud of.

Look fantastic. The design quality is superb.

The variety of heights is much better and the viewing platform is exciting.

Nowhere near the same league as Canary Wharf or The Shard though, sadly.

Slab and podium is a bit of a throwback and not a welcome one. It’s also not clear how the slabs relate to the surrounding landscape. You can’t disguise short comings with a bit of coloured cladding.

I read an article on this site around a month ago which stated that Manchester/Salford Central area has almost 7,000 residential units being built by 2020 which is more than10 times the number of units being built in Leeds and 2.5 times the number in the pipeline in Birmingham. There is no doubt that Manchester can sustain this level of residential development. The city is retaining more graduates/post graduates than are leaving so the demand is there. I do think however that there should be more new build developments for key workers & student backpackers. At present, key workers, especially in construction, seem to pack out the budget hotels like Travelodge for weeks/months on end.

The only positive will be that this is likely to be demolished in 20 years time….it’s poor urbanism and cheap low budget architecture. Ingall talks a good game but not really bothered about design and impact on communities. #outoftowner

I fail to see how a £300m project is a budget proposal? I think these look great.
