  Arndale Centre Manchester
The centre houses an 1800 space multi-storey car park, shopping malls on two levels, office space in tower, residential flats, and originally the Arndale Centre Bus Station at Cannon Street, so badly damaged by the IRA bombing of Manchester in 1996, that it never reopened, and has now largely been built over.
The design for the Centre was made by the architects Hugh Wilson and Lewis Womersley, who had already redeveloped the University Precinct on Oxford Road, as well as a considerable involvement in the redevelopment of housing in the Hulme area.
This is the very last stage in the reconstruction of the city centre since the IRA bombing of 1996 effectively obliterated the heart of Manchester.

The Arndale at Poole in Dorset, for example, is now called the Dolphin Centre; the Leeds Arndale has become the Crossgates Centre, and the main shopping precinct in the Lancashire town of Nelson has been relaunched as the Admiral.
That, maintains the centre's marketing team, is all in the past, and architects Leslie Jones have come up with a scheme that will sweep away the centre's anonymous, grey-clad frontage and replace it with a dramatic blue entrance portal.
The sheer number of Arndales built (18, at the last count) is testimony to the benefits these new centres brought to towns which had previously offered shoppers nothing but rambling, often war-damaged high streets.
