"Twelve-storey tower and podium clad in grey pre-cast concrete by S.G. Besant Roberts, the City Architect, 1966" (Pevsner). I don't suppose Mr Roberts personally did the cladding. The vertical elements look whiter.
It was built for the College of Commerce, later Manchester Polytechnic, before polys were rebranded.
