SJ8498 : Arndale Tower, Market Street, Manchester

Arndale Tower, Market Street, Manchester
Arndale Tower, Market Street, Manchester
Quite a landmark in the city, though not perhaps a much-loved one, more a barely-tolerated one. Along with the rest of the shopping centre, by Wilson & Womersley, 1972-80. It is clad in yellow tiles. I have happily lost the ability to dislike buildings like this, but if it went it would be no great loss. reports that it is "metres away from the epicentre of the 1996 IRA bomb attack on Manchester. The tower sustained blast damage including the loss of most of the windows."
