Designed by architects IDP, it's being built by contractor Forrest according to Business Daily and is scheduled for completion in 2019.

Planning permission for the site was granted earlier this year, application from  Tibst Ltd - a joint venture between Salboy Ltd and Factory Estates Ltd - proposed that the horn be dismantled and donated to Manchester City Council.

The intention is for the sculpture to be put up again in another location, reported Insider Media at the time.
