This list of the tallest buildings and structures in Manchester ranks skyscrapers, structures and towers in the city of Manchester, England by height. Manchester is a major city and metropolitan borough with a population of 510,772 (2012 est.).[1] It is historically notable for being the world’s first industrialised city[2] and for the subsequent leading role it played during the Industrial Revolution. The city centre, the location of most of Manchester's tallest buildings and structures, is a regional central business district.[3] It is at the centre of the wider Greater Manchester Urban Area which had a population of 2.55 million according to the United Kingdom Census 2011.

For completed buildings, this list includes the year of completion, the height in metres and feet and its current usage. The tallest building in the United Kingdom outside London, the city's Beetham Tower, was completed in October 2006. It is 47 storeys and 169 metres (554 ft) high and consists of residential apartments and a Hilton Hotel.[4] On the list of tallest structures are the 19th century Manchester Town Hall and the Refuge Assurance Building (now more commonly known as the Palace Hotel) from the early 20th century. The Manchester Assize Courts, once the tallest building in the city at 85 metres, was demolished after suffering unrepairable damage during the Manchester Blitz.

One of the first proposed skyscrapers in the city was the Quay Street Tower, projected to be completed in 1948, which would have stood at 110 metres (361 ft) and would have been the tallest tower in Europe.[5] The proposal was rejected and said to be inconsiderate, as much of the city was still rebuilding after the Manchester Blitz of the Second World War.[5] Most of Manchester's current towers were built during the 1960s and 1970s. This included the 118-metre (387 ft) CIS Tower, the UK's tallest building outside London for 43 years.[6]

One major advantage Manchester has is that, unlike most major cities in the UK, there are no height restrictions and adopt a laissez-faire attitude towards city centre high rises. As a result, in the 2000s (decade), there has been a renewed interest in building skyscrapers in Manchester and other cities in Britain.[7] Several residential, hotel and office developments are under construction or have recently been built in the city centre, including the Beetham Tower.[4]

There are currently four skyscrapers with a height of 100 metres (328 ft) or more,[8] and 153 high-rise buildings with a height of at least 35 metres (115 ft) or more.[9]

Tallest buildings and structures[edit]

This list ranks externally complete Manchester buildings and free-standing structures that stand at least 50 metres (164 ft), based on standard height measurement.[10][11] This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts. An equals sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings. The "Year" column indicates the year in which a building was completed. Buildings that have been demolished are not included.

Timeline of tallest buildings and structures[edit]

Manchester's skyline has been built up mostly over recent years. The CIS Tower kept the title of tallest building in Manchester for 43 years until the Beetham Tower was completed in 2006. The Beetham is set to lose the title when Piccadilly Tower is completed.
