Woods Bagot design get approval for the tower complex in Manchester
A 60-storey, £200 million tower complex in Manchester will breathe new life into the city, following the scheme’s approval by Manchester City Council.
At 188 metres tall, the development will be the UK’s tallest residential building. The tower and two adjoining medium-risk blocks will include 710 apartments, a 220 room five-star international hotel and 80,000sf of retail space, restaurants and bars.
The tower is the centre piece of a five-acre urban regeneration project that includes plazas and public spaces, historic canal frontage, a nine-metre grand stair and a bridge link to Manchester’s Piccadilly Station. Woods Bagot will provide complete urban design and architectural design services for the developer Ballymore/Merepark.
