Plans for 154-apartment block unveiled for North Manchester
Plans for a new 154-apartments scheme in North Manchester have been unveiled.
The 25-storey tower will help to kick-start the regeneration of the neighbourhood, including vibrant ground-floor commercial spaces for the underutilised site at the junction of Cheetham Hill Road and Park Place.
A public consultation has been launched by United Living and Benjamin Property Company, who are bringing forward the proposals for the development set to transform the neighborhood, named One Park Place.
It will comprise 46 thoughtfully designed one-bedroom apartments and 108 two-bedroom apartments, including a proportion of affordable homes.
Beyond the apartments, the project will offer a host of shared amenity spaces, a roof terrace, and a pocket courtyard. Active, sustainable travel will be accommodated with 154 secure bicycle storage spaces.
Furthermore, the new residential-led development would be supported by commercial units available for occupation by small businesses.
The site’s strategic location, within proximity to Manchester Victoria Railway Station and along the well-served Cheetham Hill Road bus corridor, underscores its sustainability and accessibility, making it an ideal setting for a residential development of this scale.
A dedicated project website has been launched at oneparkplace.consultationonline. co.uk.
This platform provides a comprehensive overview of the plans, allowing for the sharing of valuable feedback until September 29.
Asim Ali, at Benjamin Property Group, said: “We firmly believe that One Park Place will deliver high quality homes and act as a catalyst for the neighborhood’s rejuvenation, aligned to the area’s Strategic Regeneration Framework and reflecting the city’s vision for growth.
“With the increasing demand for city center living in Manchester, as the city continues to thrive, we take pride in offering a development that will cater to this need. We hope the community will take time to explore our plans and share their valuable feedback.”
