Portland TowerEdit profile
Portland Tower, previously known as St. Andrew's House, is a brutalist high-rise building in Manchester City Centre, England. The tower is located on Portland Street, after which the tower gets its name. The tower was one of the first of the high-rise buildings built in the 1960 and 1970s across the United Kingdom. In 2002 the entire west side of the tower was painted bright yellow and boasted the logo for the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games. Now dwarfed by the CIS Tower and Hilton Tower. Portland Tower was one of Manchester's tallest buildings when it was completed, and it has recently undergone a facelift as Manchester's City Centre is currently undergoing a major re-generation. The tower is one of the tallest buildings in Manchester.
