At a height of 551 feet (168 m) it is the tallest skyscraper in Manchester and the tallest building in the UK outside London. Upon opening in 2006 it was the tallest residential building in the United Kingdom and second-tallest in Europe.

The tower was intended to be 3 floors higher that it actually is but it was feared that it would sway too much in the wind.
