Renaker has revealed plans for a skyscraper in Manchester, UK. Five skyscrapers, including one at 213 meters, comprise the developer's transformative Great Jackson street master plan. 

The 71-story tower, dubbed The Lighthouse, would surpass South Tower at Deansgate Square as potentially Manchester’s tallest building. 

Designed by SimpsonHaugh Architects, the next phase of the Great Jackson Street master plan would also include four more towers with two at 47 stories and two at 51 stories, ultimately delivering 2,388 homes. 

Previous plans for the site proposed a 400-home development but these new plans majorly boost the density of the development. The consultation for the next phase of Great Jackson Street concluded on 20 February, 2023. 

So far, Renaker has completed six buildings within the master plan area. These include the four-tower Deansgate Square cluster, Elizabeth Tower, and Victoria Residence, comprising a total of 2,172 homes. 

The Blade and Three60, both 51 stories tall and providing a combined 855 homes, are under construction.
