Beetham Tower, Manchester

Located on Deansgate, it’s the tallest building in Manchester. (169 m.)

At least at the time of the writing it’s the tallest building; with so much construction going on in this city this may change sometime in the future–so that it doesn’t look like I’m spreading some fake news here.

It is still fairly new, only completed in 2006. Apparently it divides opinions, but I like it. I think it’s cool to have an iconic skyscraper in the city. Thin and sleek, reminds me of today’s tech gadgets.

The view from the top floor must be something to kill for!

The old and the new:

This blog needs more of Manchester red brick architecture, methinks.
