Milliners Wharf | Pollard Street | Phase 2 | 7 fl | Pro

Approved today.

Across the way from the Isis Islington Wharf tower development.

I do believe that's it below, bottom right? Please correct me if I'm wrong. I'm sure there's a better render of this development floating about. It looks the same or very similar.



Development details.

075171/FO/2005/N2

Land Adjacent To The Ashton Canal
Pollard Street/ Carruthers Street And Bond Street
Beswick And Clayton

Mixed Use Development comprising three buildings, one nine storey block, one seven storey block and one 22 storey block to provide 420 apartments, 1808sqm office space and 585sqm retail space, 235 car parking spaces and associated landscaping works after demolition of existing buildings

New East Village Properties Ltd

Paul Butler Associates

No renders or images, just a pdf description of the developement and location.

Thats taken a year and four months to approve. Wonder why it took so long? Great news all the same. This is another Citylofts scheme, no? There was an article in the MEN not so long ago about it. Citylofts certainly dont seem to hang around with their schemes so fingers crossed for a swift start.

Perhaps the design has changed? Strange how theres no other information available in the associated documents. I'm off work next week, so I'll nip down to the planning office and have a butchers.

If you look at that area - there's gonna be loads of density from new build, plus refurbishing some still substantial factory, warehouse and mill buildings. They're kinda more hidden away than in Ancoats proper, but there quite a lot of them and they would make superb apartments.

I really like this new one - as a whole it works well. Plus I understand that that side of Gt Ancoats street you still don't pay stamp duty, because the area as a whole contains some pretty poor tenants in the social housing. It'd be a v good place to invest.

Alas that was the case Skymann but Mr Brown had a change of heart.

Is this going next to the scrap yard on Pollard Street? Are they going to demolish what's left of the old mill on the corner of Carruthers Street? I think someone on here - a photography student took a lot of pictures around there and posted them a while back. I remember nearly breaking my ankle a few years ago when "Pipeline" used to be there.

It's going to need a lot of work around there as the other side of Carruthers is an absolute hole. But then I suppose it'll get sorted when the Metrolink gets done.

Good stuff. OK it ain't one of my all time favourites, but it's nice to see developments like this lifting the area.

The tripods are either old fashions levels or theodolights (or the more modern total stations/EDMs) used for setting out the site. The soil test rigs are bore hole rigs used to hammer a core into the earth to determine the soil properties and potential contamination or gas. I know I have bored you shitlesss there!

Indeed. But they rely on light, but they are quite heavy, so the spelling was a toss up
