Denton Corker Marshall Do New Manchester Tower

This unusual scheme by Denton Corker Marshall for a site off Whitworth Street West in central Manchester could be the next high-rise proposal to hit the booming city.

Drawing on the aesthetic of the recently completed landmark Civil Justice Centre which the architects also designed, the tower of the proposal will have approximately 42 floors and be split into around 200 new apartments, a 100 room hotel and ground floor retail that will animate the street running alongside and the border with the neighbouring railway arches. There is also an adjacent 9 storey office block with 10,000 square metres of space included in the scheme.

In design terms the podium supports irregularly stacked blocks in five distinct vertical sections that has been compared by observers to a game of Tetris in full flow. The edges of each block are clearly defined and although overwhelmingly greyscale that adds to the LCD retro graphics look, some strong yellows do border some pieces.

Approval should be little hassle for a developer, Ask Developments, as the area is already suitable for high-rise buildings with projects such as Axis and the iconic Beetham Tower in the immediate vicinity creating a proper cluster in the area.

Getting an anchor tenant for the office building shouldn't be much of a hassle either, the Denton Corker Marshall themselves plan on it becoming their new Manchester office when it is eventually completed indicating the project is serious enough to be more than a dream on a drawing-board.
