MANCHESTER - According to the local City News, a new company is being formed for the erection of a block of offices and warehouses in Portland-street, Manchester, a locality in which many of the leading warehouses have already been erected. The design has been prepared by Mr. E. Salomons, F.I.B.A. The building is to be in the Italian style of architecture, freely treated. The building, which will be entirely of Yorkshire stone, will be 60 feet in height, the upper portion being finished with a bold cornice, terminating an enriched balustrade. Over the principal entrances in Portland-street are massive cornices, supported by consoles and caryatides; whilst the angle at the corner of David- street is cut off, and ornamented very strikingly with carvings and a projecting balcony. The building will present a frontage to Portland- street of 220 feet, and to David-street of 140 feet. The estimated cost is about £40,000. [Building News 3 February 1865 Page 90]
