From my new office I now take lunchtime walks and now have more opportunities to look at the buildings of Manchester – both old and new.
I’m particularly interested in the Deansgate Square development at the moment. The construction of four high rise towers is currently ongoing just around the corner and the tallest will not only be the tallest in Manchester, topping out at 201m, it will also be the 5th tallest in the UK.
It’s ages since I did a post of images from my daily walk to work across Manchester City centre from Piccadilly Station. Well, this morning I moved into my company’s new office at the First Street development on the southern side of the centre. This now gives me more opportunities to look at Manchester’s buildings, old and new, on a different route to work.
Just a few shots on my way through First Street on my first morning working in the area.
Today, for the first time this year, I left work before sunset – what a change it makes!
One of my favourite things they do in Manchester is putting up these decorations for Chinese New Year and lighting up the town hall – makes the darkness of January a little more bearable.
The first of these for a while…Manchester Art Gallery.
Piccadilly Place in the snow yesterday – it’s nearly May!
The Town Hall looking colourful again yesterday evening…
Sunset from my office window…
This may not be the most architecturally brilliant building but it has a lot more character than its neighbours
