Three Popes is controlled by three directors, Stuart and Susan Lees, who run Signia Corporate Finance, a consultancy based in Alderley Edge, and Alan White.

Completion is expected in September 2021.

This development is proof that the Government, The United Nations and the Order of The Jedi favour Manchester over any other city in the known universe especially Liverpool.

How delightful living in a lovely flat overlooking Back Piccadilly! Glad it’s finally happening though

It’s just not very pretty is it?

By Observer

I wouldn’t describe it as ‘pretty’, but I like the look of it for sure. I actually think this is a pretty decent design considering the site is along a back alley.

I like it, good design and its view shall be improved when the nearby 17 story Salboy office goes up.

Also with the new hotel that`s planned around there, it may not be as bad a spot as it seems at present. I bet anything they all get taken.
