Beetham scoops prestigious international tall building award
The Beetham Organization has won a prestigious architecture prize for 301 Deansgate Manchester, which scooped the award for Best Tall Building at an international awards ceremony in Chicago last week.
Designed by Manchester-based firm, Ian Simpson Architects, the Hilton Hotel tower was completed in early 2007. It includes 218 premium apartments and a 279 room five star Hilton Hotel.
The judges on the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s (CTBUH) panel commended Beetham’s entry for its clear links and visual connectivity to Manchester city centre and for the remarkable crystalline blade which stretches 25 metres above the building, providing a buffer zone from the sun for the glass facade
Special reference was also made to the distinctive structure and shape of the Manchester Hilton hotel tower, maximising the size of the development and giving it a unique silhouette on the city below.
Mark Connolly Project Executive of Beetham Organization commented;
“Beetham has a well deserved reputation for delivering signature towers which transform the landscape and surrounding area and this award recognises this. It also shows though that our developments do not just have an impact on the local environment but have global significance.
Tim Johnson, CTBUH Awards Committee Chairman said;
“The tower dramatically places itself in the historic context of Manchester. The building is sensitive to its urban surroundings and exudes an honest expression of its various programmatic functions. We are delighted to name it our Tall Building of the Year for 2007.”
At 50 storeys high and 169 metres tall, the 301 Deansgate Manchester Tower is the tallest residential development in Europe with over 528,000 square feet of space.
