Work on the Axis residential tower in Manchester City Centre has resumed. Developer Property Alliance Group announced that the 27 storey residential skyscraper will begin construction, after foundations were laid over 5 years ago.
The plot is situated on Lower Mosley Street, adjacent to Deansgate Locks, Deansgate Castlefield Metrolink Station and the Rochdale Canal.
Today’s announcement is one part of the nearly decade-long evolution of proposals on the site, beginning in 2007 with an 18-storey office tower. Permission was then secured in November 2014 for a 27-storey residential building on the site, which would include 172 residential apartments.
After several announcements on the recommencement of works, Urbanitymcr can confirm that work has started on the site. The first residents are anticipated to move into the scheme in 2018.
The tower is one of several proposed within close proximity to Manchester’s tallest building, the 47 storey Beetham Tower. When completed, Urbanitymcr reckons that a mini skyscraper cluster will start to form in this area. A little bit of Manhattan in Manchester, perhaps!
