The development will feature two buildings on Mancunian Way and Arundel Street, including a 35-storey glass tower designed by Beetham Tower architects, SimpsonHaugh. 

A second ten-storey, U-shaped building will go up adjacent to the tower, while the nearby Dot building - a former motorcycle works from the early 1900s - will be retained and restored.

The company also owns two sites at Mayfield, near Piccadilly station, and plans to develop these alongside U+I's £800m Mayfield Quarter project.

Let's hope Flintoff's latest endeavour is as critically well received as his last... which is just, well, er...
