Looks like the best of the phases, but unfortunately the most hidden from the main road. Phase 2 (Jaguar Garage site) has come off quite well, especially with the nice bright fit out of the bicycle shop, but then they did have the fabulous existing façade to work with. The initial phase is ageing nastily, and the tiling never looked finished correctly.

Opal also haven’t had the good grace to repair the damaged caused when that poor man was killed by a bus working on the canopy; and likewise the council still hasn’t finished the barrier that might have saved his life, or replaced the lamppost that was sheered off in the accident.

Student Accommodation In Manchester

A couple of new proposals from Manor Properties. (found them while looking into the Leeds 35 stories student Tower)

Quote:
Manor Wharf Salford is a major investment in modern student accommodation designed to front the river with a distinctive award winning design which will in time accommodate students in the ever expanding Salford University.

Comprising of 240 apartments it will be modern accommodation for 1200 students.

The superior standard of accommodation will also have the added benefit of a broadband connection to every bedroom security with CCTV and an on-site management suite with associated laundry facilities for student use together with the provision of a small community shop and adjacent coffee bar.


Quote:
Manor signs in Manchester
One of the latest additions to Manor's ever expanding development programme, is the provision...
More coming soon.

Quote:
Manor Point in Manchester is located in the university heartland and creates 600 new student bedrooms in an imaginative yet sensitive new building designed to blend in seamlessly to its environment.

It also provides a 30,000 sq ft commercial space at ground and first floor level to assist the aims and ambitions of the south Manchester regeneration company in delivering employment to the area.

Advanced negotiations are in place to secure the commercial space is occupied by a science park style operator working in conjunction with the university campus facilities.

Obviously the money saved will be invested in the proposal. Stop picking fault. Read the small/bold print. Much more interesting.

So it looks as if Manor Wharf is on the site of the ill fated Adelphi St Towers project. Don't recognise the Manor Point location though.

Looks like Boundary Lane / Burlington Street / Coupland Street, right next to the science park.

Nice call sleepy. Boundary Lane, Burlington Street & Coupland Street it is.



Now just to decide if its the proposed number of new hotel bedrooms or student bedrooms which is least sustainable.

A much better render of the development for Manor Point Manchester

£36m development planned for Birley Fields

4th January 2010

By Joanne Birtwistle - Deputy Editor

PLANS for a £36m mixed-use development in Manchester are adding weight to regeneration plans for a new community campus in the Hulme area.

Manor Property Group, based in Yorkshire, has acquired land in Coupland Street for the project in Birley Fields.

The ‘Manor Point - Manchester’ development, close to the main university campuses and the city’s science park, has been designed in consultation with Manchester City Council and The Corridor Partnership.

The eight storey development will house 672 student apartments, 400 sq m of retail space for a convenience store and and around 500 sq m of office space – potentially expanding with a mezzanine deck to over 700 sq m and 1000 sq m respectively. It is expected to complete in 2012, subject to planning permission.

The new facility is planned around Manchester Metropolitan University's new 'super campus' on the Birley Fields site, which will include a new public square and shared community facilities, and house teacher training and health faculties. The new campus will create up to 340 jobs and pump an estimated £29.2m into the local economy.

The design for the Manor Point scheme has been developed by architect firm Carey Jones' Manchester office.

Manor spokesman Philip Akrill said: “We have worked closely with the local authority and other partners to develop an innovative response to the rising demand for student accommodation.

"We have to look to the future and I am confident we can help to reinvigorate the regeneration of this part of south Manchester by pushing ahead in 2010 with this mixed-use development.”

John Broadbent, of property consultants Guest Garsden, said: “Manor has worked tirelessly in recent months with the council and the local regeneration partnership to design a symbolic landmark development which will sit within the heart of the southern gateway area of Manchester.

“The Manor Point - Manchester development represents a major boost to the regeneration of the area, which has stalled during the recession.

"Manor’s significant investment demonstrates great faith in the area’s potential and they should be congratulated for making this bold move to revitalise this groundbreaking regeneration initiative."

Manor’s agent for the project is JYM Partnership, which believes the development will make a huge impact on the regeneration in this area of Manchester.

Philip Young, of JYM, said: “It is ideally located to serve the developing university campus and Carey Jones have produced an exciting scheme that enhances the area whilst also creating a well designed residential haven within minutes walk of the main university campus. This will be a big boost for Hulme’s regeneration aspirations as we enter 2010.”

The final development will be managed by Manor Student Homes. Manor Property Group has a growing portfolio of student accommodation across the north of England, and a broad base of other property developments worth in excess of £600m.

Goodness me, Manor have an exciteable PR. From the tone, you would think this is Manchester's answer to the Burj Dubai.

And 30,000 sq ft of commercial space has been slashed to the size of an airing cupboard with scope for extra shelving.

Student housing needs a strategy

This is the right approach. The huge growth in student numbers over the past decade has not been met with a corresponding strategy for housing, nationally or locally. Market forces have run riot with the result that traditional family housing across whole districts of the city, in particular Fallowfield and Withington, has become almost completely taken over by a transient population, displacing longer-term residents and owner-occupiers. This has lead to an alarming decay in the fabric of these suburbs, a scarcity of family housing and a loss of community cohesion. Investor-landlords have benefited from the tax-breaks and capital growth whilst Manchester has effectively lost key inner residential neighbourhoods. Fallowfield and Withington have always had a student presence but were historcially a popular choice for middle-class families, who now usually have to choose Cheshire to find suitable housing and the right environment. (A key indicator will be where the relocated-from-London BBC staff choose to live for their commute to Salford). The Government and the City Council have only just woken up to the enormous damage this has caused, and hopefully planning policy will now start in motion a process to release the inner suburbs back to long-term residents. Students are better suited to city centre or centre-fringe high-density housing.

Worthington to build £22m Manchester student digs

Aaron Morby | Wed 10th November | 6:45

The construction arm of developer Marcus Worthington Properties is expected to start construction of a student accommodation block in Manchester’s University district in the New Year.

The Preston based developer has received planning consent for a 416 bedroom student accommodation scheme in Manchester worth over £22m.

Its is the latest of several student accommodation jobs for the firm and brings total work won in this sector to around £80m.

The proposal for the six storey Moss Lane East buildings will see 416 en-suite study bedrooms arranged in clusters of between four and six, with a shared common room and kitchen per cluster.

Russ Worthington, Development Director at Worthington’s said: “We’re delighted to have gained permission and hope to start on site early in the New Year.

“Without the help and support of Manchester City Council and local ward members, this scheme would not have been possible and would have continued to be an underutilized area of Manchester City Centre.”

Stretching the definition of Manchester City Centre to suggest it runs to Moss Lane.
