Published on December 22nd 2008.

THE CO-OPERATIVE GROUP will build its new headquarters on land close to its existing base in Manchester city centre. The Group has acquired a six-acre car park bordering Miller Street and Dantzic Street. Work will begin on incorporating plans for the site and the new building, which will provide around 400,000 sq ft of office space, into an overall masterplan for the Group’s 20-acre complex, which is bordered by Miller Street, Dantzic Street and Corporation Street. The masterplan, which will transform an area of the city known as the Northern Gateway, will be unveiled next year.

Sahar Daftary, 23, a model, fell to her death off NV Buildings at the Quays late on Saturday. It’s not known whether it was suicide or accident. The local press are speculating wildly.
