Supertall Manchester tower

Great Jackson Street Complex


Great Jackson Street Complex
Architect Ian Simpson is set to formally reveal plans for a 64-story tower in Manchester that could reach supertall height status.
The scheme, by his practice SimpsonHaugh & Partners, will be built at a plot south of the city center and will feature four residential towers ranging from 38 to 64 stories. It is planned to be part of a 1.5-hectare site called Great Jackson Street, and will feature over 1,400 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments throughout the complex.
The towers will surpass the height of the city’s Beetham Tower, also designed by Simpson, which was completed in 2006, reaching only 47 stories. Simpson currently resides in its penthouse apartment.
A spokesman for the complex’s developer, CQ Investments, said: “Our proposals provide a fantastic opportunity to develop a series of landmark buildings set within a high quality public space creating a new community and attractive destination in the city center.”
“The arrangement, range, and specification of accommodation planned combined with the amenity and service provision will deliver highly desirable and important new homes to Manchester.” (via Bdonline)
