Green Quarter Residential Scheme
HOW Planning has secured planning approval for a new residential development, No 1 Lord Street, in Manchester’s Green Quarter, designed by architects Leach Rhodes Walker.
The scheme, which is being developed by Stockport based Anglesource Ltd, is located on the corner of Lord Street and Cheetham Hill Road. A full planning application was submitted for 192 new apartments, 76% of which with balconies, over 16 floors (15 storeys with 16th floor part mezzanine). It will also include 176 sq m of ground floor retail space which will be leased to an independent trader
The site is partially vacant, comprising surface parking and a single storey cabin style building and sits within the North Manchester Regeneration Area on a major route into the city centre. Plans include demolition of the existing structure to be replaced with the new residential scheme, which supports the objectives of Manchester City’s Core Strategy.
The new scheme provides a two-fold opportunity to dramatically enhance what is a gateway location to the city centre and to provide a building of stature with distinctive design which completes the Green Quarter development.
The full planning application was supported by an Environmental Impact Assessment, also prepared by HOW. The development will offer a mix of 1,2 and 3 bed apartments, with one 4 bed also available.
