    I don’t know if this is true but I heard…….

    The Architect who designed the Beetham Tower didn’t like the view of the old Deansgate Castlefield station from the penthouse suites at the top of the building, so he tendered for the contract to design the new station and got it. This seems to be born out by the materials being used, the new platform is clad in what looks like blue green slate tiles.
