Just wondering if someone can give some scale to this picture. I know the crane gives a slight perspective to the height of the apartment building, but it would be nice to see a mock up against the current background.1964A418-F1C0-412E-89A9-EBB0DC3BF517.thumb.jpeg.059495a2f89ce36648e4bd18b7f173a9.jpeg

It’s great to see it poking up above the flood wall. 
The Current on Hull is already going  vertical too. 
 

I see there’s already a photo of that posted above.  I took a crappy photo last week, forgot to post it.  Coupe’s is much better.

Surprised this little infill project didn't make it on the forum this morning

God it is ugly.  Seriously, what is up with the architecture going up in this part of Manchester?  Is there only one architect?

Perhaps I missed this, but found this in the Manchester Alliance minutes from Oct:

Located behind Legends ”340 apartments 8 stories, 2 stories of parking.  The development would preserve the view from Legend’s deck.  Rental prices for 2 bedroom unit $2000.  Single $1200.  Construction projected to open in spring 2020 with opening 2022.”

Caravati's has listed their building for sale, and plans on relocating.  I was looking at an aerial shot of Manchester the other day, and with the development going in near Silo's and the revamping of the canal, I imagine this will get grabbed up quickly.  At 42,000 sf, I think it could make a great food hall! Also, let's set up a urbanplanet fund to buy the underutilized lot across from Caravita's for some rowhomes, install a light art feature to the substation, turn the brick building over the canal into restaurant space, and then upgrade the grass lot into a park.

I have to ask, what is Manchester going to look like with all of this prefab concrete construction going up? This would be the 4th and 5th prefab buildings popping up. How does the material age? How difficult is it to re purpose later?

Outside of the new phase of Cityview and the Current, these new buildings are looking horrible.   I hope to be proven wrong, but imagining a riverfront full of pre-fab buildings similar to the "blue stripe" building, is a bit discouraging.
