£741m plans for four skyscrapers at Trinity Islands, including a 60-storey tower which will be the second tallest in Manchester, have been approved by Manchester Council this afternoon

Critics of the development have said that none of the 1,950 apartments will be affordable and that the developer Renaker has declined to make any significant contribution to support affordable/social housing either on site or through the section 106 contribution

The scheme  consists of two pairs of towers,which Renaker say will give each pair their own visual identity.

On the first site , the buildings are conceived as diamond forms with a crystalline facade, while the second will emphasise the taller height of the buildings with curved facades.

“Trinity Islands has been a long term vacant and underutilised site. In 2017 the land secured committee approval for a high density residential led scheme, but the approval was not implemented.

“Since acquiring the site, Renaker have been developing a deliverable scheme that will provide the opportunity to create a new community of residents and workers that are ideally located to access the high-quality amenities and leisure facilities within the wider St. Johns area. ” says the developer
