Finally the long overdue announcement that Piccadilly Gardens is going to receive a much needed face lift.  Given the lack of open space in Manchester, the accepted social problems and footfall figures of 310,000 a week, it is a wonder it has taken so long.  Finally though a joint venture should create a much needed lift for the area.  

My only hope is that they do address the issues of drugs and homelessness within the vicinity and don't simply move them on somewhere else.
