CIS Tower

Susie Stubbs

For years, the 1962 CIS Tower, which stands near Victoria Station, was the city’s highest. This former Co-operative building is notable now for being one of the city’s greenest, thanks to the solar panels in which it is clad (the highest building in Manchester, by the way, is Beetham Tower). It forms part of the NOMA quarter of Manchester.
