Exiting Manchester Piccadilly
Exiting Manchester Piccadilly
On the right is Gateway House, a modernist 9-storey office block on Station Approach, designed by architect Richard Seifert & Partners and completed in 1969 and nick-named the "Lazy-S". Plans to redevelop it have been thwarted by the threat of demolition due to the plans for HS2.

On the left a footbridge crosses London Road to Piccadilly Place a group of mixed use Grade A office buildings developed by the Carlyle Group. Two Piccadilly Place, facing Station Approach is the 55,000 sq ft headquarters for Transport for Greater Manchester.

The coaches parked are being used as Rail Replacement buses due to the line to Manchester Airport being closed because of engineering work.
