MediaCityUK wins a building prize

Manchester's MediaCityUK may be unpopular with certain BBC staff required to travel "up north", but the city takes great pride in the place.

Last night the Salford Quays complex was awarded building-of-the-year prize by Greater Manchester chamber of commerce.

That will be more welcome than the trophy it picked up last month, the Carbuncle Cup, which was awarded by the magazine Building Design.

Phil Cusack, chairman of the chamber's property and construction committee, said the development was "of national economic significance."

He added: "MediaCity will contribute to the economic well-being of Salford, Manchester and the region for generations to come. This award recognises its importance in terms of the immense contribution it is already making."
