FCBS’s ‘bold’ 22-storey Manchester housing block finally approved


It would have been so easy to retain the heritage architecture and still build an enormous new monolith on that site. Its also completely possible to extend and re-clad the existing concrete frame rather than trashing the whole thing. This is short sighted, it wont retain its value when people realise what such a deep plan building is actually like. How are they allowed to claim this as sustainable? by what measure is this lump of poorly designed housing market speculation sustainable?
