The tallest building in Allied London’s redevelopment at St John’s will rise to 168.4m – just half a metre shorter than Beetham Tower in Deansgate.

Nadler Hotel plans to operate from the 18 lower storeys with private rented flats above.

The 3.2-acre site around the Old Granada Studios complex sits in the northern part of the wider 13-acre St John’s £1.3bn regeneration scheme, which includes several more high rise buildings.

Other buildings for the Globe & Simpson site granted development approval include a neighbouring eight-storey aparthotel, an 18-storey residential building and a four-storey residential building.

St. John’s Place is due for completion at the end of 2018.
