New Skyscrapers Planned For Manchester

Manchester’s skyline is changing – no longer will it be dominated by the imposing Hilton Hotel building, at least not if new plans are anything to go by.

The Manchester Evening News revealed that a new development planned for Great Jackson Street will see no fewer than 25 towers constructed in the coming years, with seven standing at over 40 storeys.

Demand for scaffolding contractors in Manchester is likely to soar once work on the scheme gets underway.

According to the newspaper, revised plans for the Great Jackson Street project have increased the height of some of the towers and increased the number of new homes and apartments to be delivered to more than 6,300.

This is far from the only development of high-rise buildings in the pipeline in the northern city though, with the news provider highlighting the work that’s already started on a series of towers at Owen Street, near Deansgate, as well as plans that were approved in September to build more skyscrapers on the other side of the road from this site.

In addition to homes, the developments will also include retail and leisure space for restaurants, cafes and bars, among other facilities.

Meanwhile, the University of Manchester announced earlier this month that it has awarded the £287 million project to develop its engineering campus to Balfour Beatty.

The Manchester Engineering Campus Development will provide new teaching spaces and laboratories for the university’s engineering students, as well as giving research institutes a new home with the most modern facilities available.
