SJ8498 : 3-5 Portland Street, Manchester

3-5 Portland Street, Manchester
3-5 Portland Street, Manchester
A splendid facade of restrained opulence, if that isn't oxymoronic. One of a group of three former warehouses by Edward Walters, of which only the facades remain (see also SJ8498 : 7 Portland Street, Manchester and SJ8498 : 9 Portland Street, Manchester). This was built in 1858. Pevsner remarks that the balance of the horizontality of the window-pediments and the verticality of the pilasters, and "the integration of sill with lintel, the whole united by the controlling force of cornice and quoins, marks it as a product of Walters' maturity." Grade II listed.
Behind the facade is a hotel.
