The ‘Growan Park’ in Manchester’s St John’s Green was built in 1874 and it remains one of the city’s most iconic and iconic buildings.
The ‘Gower Park’ has been the focus of many a debate over its architectural merits and how it should be preserved, and many of its owners have argued that it should remain in its current state.
In a bid to preserve the historic building, a group of passionate residents and supporters have decided to put the ‘gower’ back on the city council agenda, arguing that the iconic building should be given the opportunity to go back to its former glory.
Gower’s iconic status and its position as the first major public housing estate in the UK has led to the building being listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
However, the group have not yet made the application to the government for the building to be listed as a historic site, which is a step towards its eventual inclusion in the National Trust’s list of the world’s most significant buildings.

Let it go’: St John Green residents in favour of retaining it article The St John is a popular destination for locals, but it’s also home to the Gower Park.
Located in St John Street, it is one of Manchester’s most famous landmarks.
Since the early 1900s, it has housed a number of buildings including a bank, a restaurant and a bank branch.
It’s also famous for its green roof, and its historic status as a major public property means that its future is currently up in the air.
But the St John has had some good times in recent years, thanks to its hosting of the Manchester United and Chelsea FC soccer teams.
With Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United set to move into the area, the St Johns estate has been one of many to offer visitors the opportunity of visiting, and residents are keen to ensure that it remains the city centre attraction it has always been.
There are plans to have a permanent “growan” listed on Manchester’s National Register, with the plans for the structure to be put on the council’s agenda to be discussed this month.
