BANNER-CityHistory.gif

Manchester is the largest city in New Hampshire and the largest city of northern New England, an area composed of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. It is located in Hillsborough County on the banks of the Merrimack River. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 107,006. As of 2005 the population is closer to 110,000. Manchester is the center of the Manchester, NH, New England City and Town Metropolitan Area (NECTA MA).

Incorporated as a city in 1846, Manchester is nicknamed the Queen City. In 1998, it was named the Number One Small City in the East by Money magazine. The Mall of New Hampshire, on Manchester's southern fringe, is the city's main retail center.

Historically, Manchester is important as a textile manufacturing center and the world's largest textile factory was once located along the Merrimack.

I just happend to be searching through Emporis.com in the Manchester section, and found some building heights...

City Hall Plaza - 217 feet (20 floors)

Hampshire Plaza - 259 feet (20 floors)

I bring it up becuase in the trivia section of this city profile it says....

"City Hall Plaza, the tallest building in northern New England"

So either the info at emporis.com or the info in this thread is incorrect. I don't mean to be a nit-picker but I just like to keep everything in check. :)

whatever the blackish glass building is...the one that was built in the 1970s...that is the tallest building in manchester. I believe it is 79 meters, which is 237 feet, according to emporis.com/////I wonder why we have different numbers from the same website? anyways, at 237 feet, that makes the building 24 stroies tall.....259 would make it 26 stories (not floors, but stories, based on feet, not individual levels)...

one addition - i re-did my math, and I forgot that it is a yard that is 3 feet and meters are 3 feet four inches, so really hampshire plaza comes out to be over 260 feet tall...you were right corey.

City Hall is at least the same height if not taller than Hampshire Plaza. I don't know how emporis got those numbers but they are way off... If you take a look at Manchester you will see.

I don't think so. They just finnished putting in new windows and new stairs and a entrance. But Bradly Sullivan was talking about building another high on that parking lot behind it. I don't where that stands at the moment.

Welcome to UrbanPlanet btw. Its so great to see somebody else from Manchvegas. I've been the only one for so long. :D

I beg to differ. If you are looking at it strait on from say West high school you can clearly see that they are at least the same height. If anything city hall plaza is taller. They must have the specs mixed up. I'll have to take a photo of it and post it.

I have been to Manchester many times, but I never understood what kind of businesses were there. I also thought of it as mostly service oriented, and I have to admit, not necesszarily filled with work. So what companies are there now?

And as far as that parking lot goes, I say that is great proof that a parking garage, designed right and set in a nice landscape, would be faar, far better than a sprawling parking lot.
