Time and Tide’s Gravity tower wins approval

Planning consent has been given for developer Time and Tide's 35-storey Gravity tower off Great Ancoats Street in Manchester, designed by Austin-Smith:Lord.

The Store Street development will comprise 373 one and two bedroom apartments, ground floor commercial and retail space and basement car parking.

The £82m project includes a six storey residential block connected to the tower by a glass core.

Time and Tide is based in Lancaster where it is redeveloping Halton Mills on the River Lune.

Other recent projects by Austin-Smith:Lord in Manchester are the restored and expanded John Rylands Library on Deansgate, which opened again in May, and the new Peoples History Museum, now on site.
