I hope it's going ahead. Anything to get the little darlings back towards campus and out of all the family houses they have colonised in Withington.

Oooh I don't mind that, looks to have been completely overhauled from the old design (not the Alsop one, as this is the plot next to it I believe), I'll see if I can find the original!

It's a beast. And an ugly one at that. What is it with all these student blocks looking like a pile of............(fill in as appropriate)

Manor awaits decision on student housing in Hulme

5 May 2011, 18:33


Manor Property Group has applied for full planning permission for an eight storey block of 676 student apartments at Coupland Street in Hulme, south Manchester.

The Yorkshire-based developer submitted proposals in December last year and Manchester City Council has stated a determination deadline on the application is 23 June 2011.

Bill Addy, from Manor Property Group, said: "Manor recognises the strategic importance of the Coupland Street site which is within walking distance of both the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University. In addition it will create an opportunity to meet the growing demand for high quality independent student accommodation in the city. We hope to be able to start on the site later this summer and be ready for occupancy from September 2013."



Manor Property Group acquired the brownfield site for £36m in January last year and regarded the scheme as the start of regeneration around a planned £100m Birley Fields campus by Manchester Metropolitan University.

Architect Carey Jones Chapmantolcher has designed the scheme, known as Manor Point, and the developer said the site is earmarked for development as part of the council's Corridor Manchester Strategic Vision.



Manor hopes its plans meet with the council's general policy which seeks to bring about the lasting regeneration of Hulme.

Colin Wilson, from The Planning Studio in Manchester, who has provided the planning and regeneration statement for the application, added: "This is a unique and exciting opportunity to deliver a major student accommodation development for this derelict site together with a significant number of jobs. It is in a prime university location and will regenerate an area that has been derelict for a number of years."

The site is located near Oxford Road and Piccadilly railway stations.

The proposals include en-suite bedrooms, shared kitchens and communal facilities. Subject to planning approval, the development will also provide a gym, laundry, and internet café, as well as 21,527 sq ft of offices with 13 car parking spaces.

Manor expects 300 construction and supplier jobs to be created during the build phase if the scheme gets the green light.

Hi I'm from the Hull and Humber forum and follow this thread however do not usually contribute, any way Id just like to either warn you or assure you, this will probably not get built.

Manor property are a developer who acquire sites at low cost rates and just sit on the land for the simple reason of making a profit. They have sites across the north and have done for five years (maybe more)and there still have not laid one brick on any of there sites. I understand that some projects are big projects and take a lot of time to put together however they have a lot of sites that are small scale or renovation projects, five years is a long time for these sort of projects (I should know being a architect and all). They also have several 'dodgy dealings' within there company however you'd have to ask my fellow forumers on the hull and Humber forum for more info.

Hope this is informative and I hope you don't mind me err sticking around?

I don't mind it too much actually. It will certainly have a presence!

Basically with today's student blocks they're looking for volume (as the report says, there's high demand for high-quality independent student rooms) - that's why all these buildings are large and bulky.

But I've seen a lot worse than this. It doesn't seem too bad if you ask me.

Thanks for the warning Hull. As you probably know we already had problems with a certain previous developer who had a similar business model.

Yeah, looks good.

As an aside, I wonder what impact it will have on the electricity generation from those solar panels on the building to the left on the render? They could be in for a shock, well in winter maybe.

Are those new student halls going up where that half finished apartment building is/was? Design looks pretty good.

I was wrong about them having a hall in Manchester, could have sworn I saw their logo on Cambridge street the other day. Anyway, I don't really mind the Hulme one too much, that area around coupland street/boundary lane is a dive right on the doorstep of the university, so I welcome it/anything. At least it's a perimeter block and so will contribute to the streetscape unlike the thing above on Denmark Street.
