Architect Denton Corker Marshall has submitted a planning application for another 36-storey residential building within St John’s, known as Tower Two, on behalf of Allied London and Manchester City Council.
Tower Two is a near-identical sister building for Tower One, which went in for planning last November.
Both are 36 storeys, include 305 apartments in each, and will be available for the private rented sector, operated by Allied London’s PRS arm, St John’s Living.
Tower One is copper-clad, while Tower Two is grey-clad. Both have a riverside location and are accessed off Water Street.
The twin buildings sit alongside St John’s Place, a 52-storey tower designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners, which was granted planning permission in October. St John’s Place includes residential, a Nadler Hotel, and restaurant.
The towers are Denton Corker Marshall’s first major commission for Allied in Manchester since the completion of the Civil Justice Centre which opened in Spinningfields in 2007.
The £1.3bn St John’s neighbourhood is being delivered on the 13-acre former ITV Granada site by a joint venture between Allied London and Manchester City Council.
