Vantage Point - Spinningfields, Manchester, UK

Date Built
Hardman Square
Vantage Point is located close to, but is not part of, the Spinningfields Development.  It sits on the corner of Hardman Street and Byrom Street looking out over the new Hardman Square. 

The planning application for the redevelopment of this site indicated that:

"This involves the demolition of the existing building and the erection of a predominantly glazed contemporary office building that would rise in height from 11 storeys to 16 storeys.

The proposal is for the erection of a new building to be used for offices with a shop unit at ground floor fronting Hardman Street and basement car parking with access from Byrom Place via Joddrell Street, providing 21 spaces and 14 bicycle stands.

The proposed building would be predominantly 10 storeys in height, rising to a maximum of 11 storeys at the corner of Byrom Street and Hardman Street. The building would be of a contemporary design with the bottom five storeys constructed from stack bonded sandstone blocks with glazing punched in and projecting out to follow the geometry of the site and the two roads on which the site lies. The sandstone would continue up the building around the circulation core with the upper floors being predominantly glazed. The main entrance to the building would be on the corner of Byrom Street and Hardman Street."
