In March 2000 this corner tower is grimy and decrepit, windows smashed and falling out of their frames. The stonework is still blackened by smoke. The interior of the building is also in a precarious state. It will require enormous investment and many man-hours to restore these buildings. I'd love to live in the room at the top and enjoy the views over Manchester in four directions.

In May 2005 work is well advanced on the reconstruction and renovation of the building.  A crane has been set up next to the tower. The brickwork and stone have been cleaned and restored and new (temporary) windows inserted. Soon new residents will be enjoying the views from these windows, but I wonder who is going to be enjoying the four-way views from the tower?
