Plans Unveiled for Mammoth 76-Storey Manchester Skyscraper

Plans have been unveiled for a new 76-storey skyscraper in central Manchester, which would dwarf the city’s current tallest building, the 47-storey Beetham Tower, to become a new landmark in the bustling northern city.

The proposal has been put forward by property developer Salboy Group as part of a wider scheme to redevelop an area of the city between Manchester Central Convention Complex and Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink Station, where the developer has almost finished building a new 40-storey tower.

Promised to become a "crowning feature" of the Manchester cityscape, the mammoth 76-storey skyscraper would house 780 apartments.

A spokeswoman for Salboy said the firm expects to submit a planning application in early 2024.

As reported by the Architects Journal, the tower will feature inclined faces, designed to ‘catch light differently, creating a dynamic response to changes in light conditions’.
