St Peter’s Square Designs

Redevelopment Shortlist

These are the final two designs shortlisted for the transformation of St Peter’s Square.

Manchester Council launched an international competition to redesign the historic square after revealing plans for a multi-million pound makeover of the civic quarter in 2009.

Option 16:
One St Peter’s Square Manchester

Option 4:
One St Peter’s Square Manchester

Architects were sent back to the drawing board in 2011 to incorporate a second Metrolink line, which is to run through the square, and the relocation of the cenotaph, which will be moved closer to the town hall following a public consultation.

The two finalists’ designs were going on public display for two days, before a scheme is chosen.

Architects wer asked to come up with a redesign that will open up St Peter’s Square and create a ‘world-class space’. The project, in which the council is investing £20m, will complement modernisation projects at the Manchester Town Hall (north of square), Manchester Central Library (north west) and One St Peter’s Square (south) and is expected to be completed in 2014.

The landscape designs are on public display at the council’s offices at Number One First Street on 20 Mar 2012 from 10am to 5pm.

Redevelopment of Elisabeth House Site

Demolition on the outskirts of the square is now under way, with the landmark Elisabeth House site among the first to be brought down.

The site, which once housed the Dutch Pancake House, will be replaced with a top-grade office block, to be known as One St Peter’s Square.
