During late 2005 the grey service section of the CIS Tower was clad in blue solar panels, creating enough power for 50 homes a year.
Was the tallest office building in Western Europe when completed in 1962 and was still the tallest building in the U.K outside London until 2005.
When built the service tower was clad in 14 million mosiac tiles, which immediately began falling off.
It was heavily influenced by the Inland Steel Building in Chicago http://www.skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=10487
CIS tower is a Grade II listed building.
It was the first building in Manchester to surpass the height of the 87m Town Hall.
On a clear day Jodrell Bank observatory and the Welsh Mountains can be seen from the top floors.
The letters of the CIS logo are 7ft high.
