The ‘build to rent’ development consists of 274 one, two- and three-bedroom apartments within two buildings positioned around a landscaped courtyard. Residents will be provided with amenities including concierge facilities, resident’s lounges, a gym, and two roof top terraces incorporating private dining pavilions.
Adopting an off-site construction approach resulted in 107,500 hours of work being removed from site – helping to reduce safety risks and waste produced on-site as well as reducing disruption to the local community. As part of this approach, the precast concrete frame and façade were manufactured at a factory only six miles from the project site, helping to reduce carbon emissions associated with the project.
The development is within a five-minute walk of the vibrant and creative Northern Quarter district which offers a range of independent designers, bars and restaurants. It is also within easy reach of Piccadilly Gardens, Market Street and Shudehill interchange for connections to the extensive bus and Metrolink services, as well as Manchester Victoria train station.
The development follows the principles set out by Manchester City Council within the New Cross Neighbourhood Development Framework to help bring forward the regeneration of the area.
