Green Quarter Apartments Given Go-Ahead
Plans for No1 Lord Street, a new scheme for managed residential apartments in Manchester’s Green Quarter, have been approved by Manchester City Council
HOW Planning submitted a full planning application on behalf of Stockport based Anglesource Ltd and approval paves the way for a new development comprising 192 apartments. It will also include 176 sq m of ground floor retail space which will be leased to an independent trader.
Comments James Berggren, Senior Planner at HOW Planning: “The approved scheme will create a gateway building on Cheetham Hill Road, delivering high quality residential accommodation in this city centre location, which will contribute to the on-going regeneration of the area. We will now work closely with the council to discharge the planning conditions”.
The scheme, which has been designed by architects Leach Rhodes Walker, is located on the corner of Lord Street and Cheetham Hill Road and will transform a partially vacant piece of land within the North Manchester Regeneration Area on what is a major route into the city centre. Christian Gilham, managing director at Leach Rhodes Walker said “We are delighted to have worked with Manchester City Council to create an outstanding scheme, of true quality, and which reinforces our position as one of the leading PRS residential practices in the region”.
The new residential scheme will offer a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bed apartments, with one 4 bed also available. The full planning application was supported by an Environmental Impact Assessment, also prepared by HOW.
