Beetham Tower Manchester
Completed in 2006 at a cost of 150 million, the Beetham Tower in Manchester, is the highest building in the city, the tallest residential building in Europe and the 7th tallest building in England with over 525,000 square feet of space. The Beetham Tower is 168.87 metres high, has a total of 47 floors and is home to the Manchester Hilton Hotel, 219 luxury apartments and 16 penthouses.
The canal side buildings in the foreground are in Castlefield, an old working-class industrial area, which has benefitted from sensitive restoration and conservation.
