SJ8498 : City Buildings, Corporation Street, Manchester

City Buildings, Corporation Street, Manchester
City Buildings, Corporation Street, Manchester
Slightly forlorn former warehouse (later shops and offices), built c1870, with copious amounts of greenery sprouting from the top like an unruly haircut. The "stone finial in the form of an occulus" (at the top) is an unusual feature. Grade II listed.
NOMA is a four-million-square-feet mixed-use development formulated by the Co-operative Group. I imagine this building will be spruced up rather than demolished, but one never knows.
