Manchester Hub visits city’s skyscraper builds

9 September 2019

Hub members (below) visited the 64th storey of the South Tower (above) – the UK’s fifth tallest tower

The Manchester Hub recently visited one of the largest sites in the city – Deansgate Square, developed and constructed by Renaker Build.

The project comprises four high-rise towers of 64, 50, 44 and 37 storeys and 183,000 sq m floor area. The 64-storey South Tower rises to 201m – making it the tallest tower in Manchester and fifth tallest in the UK. 

The hub was delighted to visit the top of the South Tower to savour amazing views across the north west.

The scheme features a 20m pool, indoor tennis court, gymnasium and riverside plaza. It is in the Great Jackson Street Development Framework, which earmarks the area west of the city centre for up to 25 new high-rise towers.

Manchester is undergoing a construction boom and this scheme is one of many high-rise developments changing the city-centre skyline.
