Renaker dusts off West plans for Owen Street

Quote:
CQ Investments, a subsidiary of Renaker, is putting together plans to build 1,400 apartments across four “landmark buildings” designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners, on a car park site to the South of Manchester city centre.

According to a leaflet promoting a consultation event taking place next week, the plans echo those previously proposed for Owen Street by Donal Mulryan’s West Properties, approved in 2008.

Also designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners, then Ian Simpson Architects, the project featured five towers of between 14 and 49-storeys, made up of 1,200 apartments, a hotel and offices. However, after West Properties’ profits fell during the recession, the site was bought by Morgan Stanley in 2011 as part of the disposal of £216m of Mulryan’s assets by the Irish Government’s National Asset Management Agency.

In 2015, Owen Street was sold alongside two other prominent former West assets in Manchester, the Origin site on Princess Street and the Renaissance Hotel in Deansgate. London developer Urban & Civic bought the Princess Street and Deansgate assets.

Under Renaker’s plans, which are to be put on display next week as part of a pre-planning application consultation, Owen Street will feature four residential buildings made up of 1,400 flats, supported by an amenity building which will include a tennis court, swimming pool, cinema, gym, basement parking, cafes and restaurants. The properties will be surrounded by 95,000 sq ft of public realm.

According to the consultation invite, the development aims to be “of the highest architectural quality”.

The consultation will take place on 13 January at the GIA office, 2 Commercial Street, M15 4RQ, between 3pm and 7pm.

Deloitte is advising on the planning application.

Renaker was unavailable for comment when contacted by Place North West.

Subject to market conditions, Renaker is confident construction would start immediately.
Construction would be phased, with Tower 1 (tallest) and Tower 4 (Deansgate) leading, with the other towers following.

The buildings are classic Simpson, although with a slight twist: angled facades. These alternate between light and dark shades. There is also fritt pattern glass on alternate panels.

The scheme has been designed to appeal to both PRS and owner occupiers. Which way it goes will depend on final funding.

Chester Street and the second Greengate plot are still in design and won't be submitted for planning until delivery on this site is secure.

First city in the UK outside of London to break the 200-metre barrier. Exciting times!
