The Manchester Metropolitan University Business School on Aytoun Street reflects The Hub Apartment block. http://www.thehubmanchester.co.uk/
As far as I can work out, Aytoun Street is named after Roger Aytoun. He was a Scot from Inchdarney in Fife, and a captain in the 72nd Regiment of Foot or Manchester Volunteers. The regiment was raised mostly through Roger Aytoun's efforts and money; it took part in the defence of Gibraltar in 1781–2. He squandered the estates he gained by marriage, which were sold in 1775.
