Child Graddon Lewis designs high density sustainable vertical village in Manchester

The proposed vertical village scheme will be located at the western end of the new 4.7 acre St. John’s site. Child Graddon Lewis’ mixed-use development takes high density living to a new level, incorporating places to work, eat, rest and play. The scheme designed for Allied London comprises of 6 inter-connecting elegant residential towers that sit on a park level podium, with the tallest to stand at 50-storeys high with green spaces connecting each level. The vertical village is a sustainable model for high density urban living providing accommodation, public gardens, restaurants, commercial, educational and medical amenities and even facilities for the growing of food. The buildings orientation is designed to allow excellent sunlight levels and attractive views from within each of the 1,200 apartments.

The focus of the vertical living concept is to create an integrated diverse community with a range of communal areas designed at different scales and intimacies. Triple-height atria to the central cores provide shared communal space for residents living within a few of floor levels of each other, designed to encourage a genuine neighbourhood feel, and a sense of ownership of spaces in which residents can dwell, relax and socialise. Situated on top of the level 5 podium, residents and public alike can access the amenities and facilities that one would normally find around a village green: pubs, play spaces, sports clubs, a doctor’s surgery a small school; here the wider community can come alive, connect and enjoy the various spaces. Along the river frontage assorted retailers and restaurants are accessed at riverside level providing attractive connections to the wider communities of St. John’s, Castlefield, Spinningfields and Salford.

The scheme will harvest rainwater to supply the irrigation of landscaped grounds, communal winter gardens and cores, and the living walls to the outside of the podium levels. The wider St. John’s site benefits from a centralised district heating system which will provide the power, heating and hot water for all buildings within the development area. Additionally, the development may also include the use of photovoltaics to generate an additional power source for the community, and the neighbouring River Irwell may be utilised to cool the apartments within the towers. The towers’ central cores will be passively cooled by implementing the stack effect and warmed in winter by the rejected heat from the residential and commercial accommodation.

CGL’s design focuses on fostering an integrated community within the village and within Manchester.

Allied London submits final planning applications for St. John’s neighbourhood and Trinity Islands

Allied London has completed planning applications for all phases of its St. John’s neighbourhood. St. John’s will be situated on the land formerly part of the ITV estate in the heart of Manchester City Centre and will be a new neighbourhood for enterprise, culture and living.

Planning applications for St. John’s Place, The Villages, The Riverside and Manchester’s first vertical village, Trinity Islands, were submitted and complete the St. John’s masterplan. Applications to refurbish the historic Bonded Warehouse and convert the former Old Granada Studios headquarters building into an event hotel to be known as Manchester Grande were submitted in June.

The first of the new submissions is for St. John’s Place, which will be the gateway to the new St. John’s neighbourhood and is made up of a cluster of four mixed-use buildings of varying height.

The largest of these will be a new 50–storey landmark tower consisting of approximately 280 residential apartments and 180 hotel suites set within its own garden.

Alongside this tower will be an apartment hotel with approximately 150 bedrooms and two residential buildings that face onto the River Irwell and Quay Street with retail and leisure space at ground level.

The four St. John’s Place buildings will vary in height from 5–50 storeys and will put St. John’s on the map of the Manchester skyline.

The Riverside submission details plans for a vibrant green space situated along the River Irwell. Public and semi-public pocket parks will provide vital green resources and will feature sculptural terraces, sunken gardens and informal seating areas.

As well as providing public realm The Riverside will also house two residential towers, approximately 30 and 40 storeys in height. The towers will sit amongst the park and will offer stunning views over the city and the new arts and culture hub, The Factory, which is currently being developed with Manchester City Council. Allied London is dedicated to and experienced in the delicate art of effective place-making and The Riverside will be carefully managed to ensure that it is properly maintained and used by residents and visitors alike.

Completing the submissions is phase 2 of The Villages, which will host low-rise residential apartments integrated with retail and workspace offerings. All retail and amenity space has been carefully designed in order to support independent traders and help cultivate an artisan culture across St. John’s.

Residential buildings will be rich in outside space, with private terraces, balconies and roof gardens. Interconnected with tree-lined bridge, the villages will form the basis for a tight-knit community. The surrounding streets will be pedestrianised and will retain the footprint of the rich cultural history of the site.

All buildings, along with the overall masterplan, have been designed by architects Simpson Haugh to be sensitive to the heritage of the site whilst establishing St. John’s as a new and distinctive destination to live, work and play. They will be highly connected by close-knit streets with activities happening at every corner led by a continual engagement process with communities surrounding St. John’s. Allied London has worked very closely with Gillespies to develop a masterplan which contains a significant amount of green space and public realm; parks and gardens, interconnecting squares, streets, alleyways and courtyards as well as vertical greenery, window boxes, vines, public squares and entertainment spaces.

The planning application for Trinity Islands, designed by Child Graddon Lewis architects, sees the creation of Manchester’s first vertical village consisting of 1,200 homes within six elegant inter-connecting residential towers. These towers sit on podiums that have been designed as landscaped fields, containing parking and other amenities that form a community living within one structure.

Trinity Islands will be built on a 4.7 acre total site and will incorporate places to live, shop, work, play and eat as well as a variety of community amenities. All amenities and residences have been designed to encourage a genuine neighbourhood feel and a sense of community in spaces where residents can dwell, relax and socialise.

Allied London will continue to maintain this public realm to ensure it is a vibrant space that facilitates the St. John’s community to integrate and develop organically.

To explore the potential of this new neighbourhood, Allied London has appointed a consultant to work with the surrounding communities over the coming months to develop a framework for social engagement and corporate responsibility.

Allied London’s Chief Executive, Michael Ingall, said, “We intend to foster a close relationship with all future members of the Trinity Islands and St. John’s community from the outset. Our strategy will see Allied London engage with future residents of these new neighbourhoods and will allow them to help mould the communities in which they live.

“Continual public engagement and feedback has always been a key part of the development of St. John’s. Allied London is leading the way in this kind of bottom-up strategy, and we are continuing this process with the creation of this new community-focused role.”
Allied London proposes to start construction work on St. John’s in 2016 subject to planning approval.

Good stuff Choggy. I have to say that reading the blurb, this sounds really good. It's what I like, tall buildings with green space instead of low rise plot fillers.

Off topic.

Not a great fan of Apple, but their iPAD is a tablet killer.

Schools are an excellent thing for the city centre. This is of course combined with Co-op's announcement last week that there may be a new Co-op academy in the south of the city centre (link below) and the Free School in New Islington; currently under construction

http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/manchester-skyscrapers-city-centre-future-11223829#rlabs=1%20rt$category%20p$3


Schools will make it ever more attractive for families to start moving into the City Zone. Next we'll start seeing more Pharmacies, doctor's surgeries, A&E centres, Police stations, playground parks, nurseries...... aimed at increasing liveability for the young/families in the city centre.

All ready for when I start having kids in the city centre in 15 year's time

I think it's the riverside park planned at St Johns.

On the left here:

Pretty sure it's Middlewood locks, as Beetham can be seen to the left of Trinity

Wouldn't imagine it will be much of a park. 2 towers along with Factory and don't forget the road suggest something token at best.

Hope I'm wrong though.

In fairness to Simpson I think he probably had the right idea with his design for Factory in creating an elevated public space that led up to the river.

I'd say more Middlewood locks judging from the angle of the Beetham
