SimpsonHaugh submits plans for Manchester's tallest tower

  • Comment

SimpsonHaugh and Partners has submitted plans for what could become Manchester’s tallest building

The scheme for the 1.5ha Owen Street car park site next to the river Medlock features a 64-storey tower along with three neighbouring blocks of 37, 44 and 50 storeys. 

The firm - then operating as Ian Simpson Architects -  was also behind Manchester’s 47-storey Beetham Tower, built in 2006 (see below), which currently holds the highest building in the city title.

The practice has been working on designs for the plot within the Great Jackson Street development area for nearly a decade. In 2008 it won planning for a five-tower scheme backed by West Properties.

The latest design for developer CQ Investments Limited, a subsidiary of Renaker, features more than 1,400 homes, shops, bars and a 9,000m² public square.

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