The Hub - Five Piccadilly Place, Aytoun Strret and Whitworth Street - 2009

This residential block provides a range of studio, 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, with commercial units at ground floor. "More than half of the apartments will be sold to owner-occupiers on a shared equity basis at discounted market value....The Hub is designed to take full advantage of its corner site, providing an elegant sweep of precast concrete columns to the junction of Whitworth Street and Aytoun Street."

Glen Howells were also responsible for Urban Splash's Timber Wharf and Burton Place in Castlefield.  At this point I don't have photographs of them.
