2-4 Chester Road

Manchester City Council has today granted planning approval for this high quality development within the historic Castlefield area close to Manchester City Centre.The development will provide 188 apartments across two buildings.

The buildings range in height from 10 storeys to 21 storeys stepping up in height towards the city centre acknowledging the site’s nature as gateway point and mediating between Castlefield and the tall buildings beyond. The dynamic forms of the buildings retain key views into the canal basin and cantilevering elements frame the view of the Grade II listed Castlefield Chapel when approached along Chester Road. The Chapel was transformed into offices by OMI in 2010.

Construction is due to commence in 2017 with completion scheduled for 2019.
