Plans for a 28-storey residential tower in Manchester city centre are expected to be approved next week.
Property Alliance Group and joint venture partner Development Securities submitted proposals for the scheme in August, to replace earlier plans for a 75,000 sq ft office block.
Manchester City Council will meet to consider the development at its planning committee meeting on Thursday 13 November.
The Axis plot is off Albion Street next to Deansgate Locks, opposite Ask Development's First Street scheme.
Designed by 5plus Architects, the residential tower will provide 172 one-, two- and three- bedroom luxury apartments. The 28th floor will be divided into two penthouses.
JLL is the residential agent. The scheme is expected to complete by autumn 2016.
Livingcity provided service charge and management advice.
Work initially began on the proposed 18-storey office building in 2007 with completion scheduled for 2009 before activity stalled.
