This mixed-use development is situated on a key gateway site bounded by Trinity Way and Chapel Street on a major route into Manchester.
The development will create 375 PRS apartments and 870m2 of commercial and retail space contained within two groups of buildings that straddle a lively new public square. At street level the public realm will be lined with a broad range of shops and commercial outlets. Residents of the PRS apartments will benefit from, a café, gym, private lounge and meeting rooms.
Four apartment blocks which vary in height from 11 to 20 storeys sit upon a podium of two-storey buildings which provide commercial and retail space at ground level while also creating attractive raised courtyard gardens for the residents. The tallest residential block acts as a termination of the view along Chapel Street and also the new route from Manchester city centre. Its tall, slim form is cut back at the lower levels to provide dramatic framed views from Chapel Street into the newly formed public square.
