Plans for a new 17-storey office block in Deansgate have been revealed.
Property firm Kames bought 39 Deansgate for a reported £11m last year.
New images released by the company now show their plans for a huge new glass building on Deansgate.
It would have more than 135,000 sqft of office space and 5,000 sqft for ground floor or restaurant use, they said.
39 Deansgate sits in the wider Renaissance Hotel regeneration area, earmarked for a £200m transformation in the coming years.
The 1970s hotel is set to be demolished to make way for a five-star hotel, 600 upscale apartments and a new public courtyard, as well as waterfront walkways and restaurants.
A drop-in consultation session for Kames' plans is being held on Thursday 28th November 2019 from 3pm until 7:30pm at 39 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 2BA.
Local residents, businesses and stakeholders are invited to view the plans and discuss the proposals with members of the project team.
Richard Peacock, co-manager of the Kames Property Income Fund said: “Manchester has experienced a sustained period of unprecedented growth over the past two decades and the city remains highly attractive to major occupiers.
“There is strong demand for high quality office space in Manchester and 39 Deansgate represents an attractive redevelopment opportunity. We welcome the views of local residents and business on the proposals.”
