“….AND ON THE SIXTH DAY GOD CREATED MANCHESTER”
In my opinion the most progressive City in the UK, from the start of the industrial revolution to regenerated cultural heart of the North if not the whole country. Manchester is a big, diverse city, with tons of enthusiasm and more than enough to love to give visitors. There’s a lot to do and see with venues for sport entertainment and socialising.
Manchester City Center changes observed by Nicks Removals
Working in the UK removal business for many years now I have noticed the change in the way we live, where we live and in the types of buildings we live in. I am a Mancunian by birth but have worked in the domestic housing environment in all towns and cities in the UK and some in Europe.
There has been no bigger change in domestic dwelling development apart from London than Manchester. Our town centers have change from a place we would flock to for shopping or work to a continuous hive of activity. There was a time you could walk through the town center on a Sunday morning and be the solitary stroller apart from maybe the odd drunk from the night before. With the opening of pubs in the morning late night shops to service the ever increasing city population our town centers are now merged with domestic dwellings, shops offices and businesses.
The number and types of domestic apartment blocks vary from converted Victorian mills with oak beamed ceilings and original steel features combined with the modern essential designer kitchens and bathrooms with the latest fixture and fittings to the new designed architectural blocks of many different shapes and sizes adding a new dimension to our skyline often these new blocks are debatable slated for the aesthetic look on the landscape, on personal experience with working in most developments in Manchester the quality and internal size of the accommodation in a lot of these blocks is widely variable and the transient nature of some do not make for long term living.
As the city center has expanded a lot of areas which were once considered outside are now classed as within the city center, I will try and give an honest opinion of a number of blocks I have worked in and the feedback my customers have given me of living there,
Great Northern tower, fantastic concierge service well run building, more in depth reviews to come…..
If any of you reds need moving give me a call i do regular trips to London, If you are from outside Manchester and want to adopt a Manchester Football team while you are here make sure its City and not one of the others Bolton Wanderers, Wigan Athletic, Oldham Athletic, Bury, Rochdale. Although these are all great clubs with history’s going back over 100 years you are probably going to see more action at the Etihad Stadium.
