Weekend Reflections: Seeing double at Huron Basin
The answer to yesterday's question is...The NV apartments and Detroit Bridge by Huron Basin at Harbour City, Salford Quays. Winter sunshine at its most creative.
The NV development (I cannot find out what "NV" stands for!) consists of these three 18-storey residential towers, each 180 feet (55m) in height. Costing £36m to build, their curved frontages were designed to represent sails. To the right Detroit Bridge was once a railway swing bridge crossing the Manchester Ship Canal but was later re-sited here.
Have a look around the apartments at YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9FIJLKKn7E&feature=related and on the JJT Residential channel which that clip is on.
