SimpsonHaugh reveals plans for Manchester's tallest tower

  • Comment

Plans for what could become Manchester’s tallest building drawn up by SimpsonHaugh and Partners are set to be submitted next month

The scheme for the 1.5ha site would see a 64-storey tower built within the Great Jackson Steet development area.

The firm, previously known as Ian Simpson Architects, was also responsible for Manchester’s 47-storey Beetham Tower, built in 2006 (see below), which is the current highest building in the city.

The proposals will be considered by Manchester City Council when they are submitted by developer CQ Investments Limited in a matter of weeks.

They comprise more than 1,400 homes spread across four residential buildings ranging from 38 to 64 storeys, along with leisure amenities.

The proposals also include a 9,000m² public square on the edge of the neighbouring River Medlock.

Flexible space for shops or entertainment facilities also feature in the plans, along with a new bar/restaurant.

The plans have been drawn up in accordance with the council’s development framework which has been adopted for the area.

The developer aims to start construction in the third quarter of this year, with the whole scheme open by 2020.

Earlier this week, SimpsonHaugh and Partners reported a small drop in turnover but saw pre-tax profits rise during the year to March 2015.
