arpartments. not amazing ones but pretty good. went for a viewing there, i'm fairly sure it was that one anyway, "hudson buildings". was offered £650 for a two bed with no parking. would have been more but the carpets were dirty in that one and some furniture damage. the livingrooms are nice with big windows, if small on floorspace. i expect some apartments are bigger and more expensive. there may be a rooftop, though it may be for a top floor penthouse or something.

The ancoats urban village company (now part of new east manchester)
have a interactive 3d virtual model of the whole site.
Complete with details of most buildings.

www.auvc.co.uk

here is a screen shot



The whole block is great, with all its quirky buildings.
My personal favourite has to be the Derros Building next door. One of the best refurb jobs in the city imo. (corner blding with B&W detailing on roof)

Hudsons Building
1924 – 4 storey three bay, with vertical columns and ornamented pediment – Yellow faience with large cracks. Refurbished to provide ground floor commercial with residential above.

53 Ancoats Street
1865 – Ornate brick façade to Great Ancoats Street and Blossom Street. Paired windows three bays to Ancoats Street and Blossom Street. Originally a Japanning works. Has been a blind making works and offices of the Amalgamated Association of Cotton Spinners. Premises now vacant.

Derros Building
1899 – 4 storey red industrial brick with top floor in Cheshire black and white, end gable and bow window to Ancoats Street and strong yellow banding. Chamfered corner entrance. Built as a Methodist women’s night shelter and coffee tavern. Also 1899 – 1903 was a maternity hospital. Later used as a club by Express Printers.Recently refurbished to create ground floor commercial and residential above.

Doctors Building
1888 - Three storey attractive red brick Art Noveau type building. 2 pairs of tall thin windows on the second floor, generous bow window on the first floor, 4 openings ground floor (boarded up). 1888 occupied by a druggist and by 1911 by Walk Williams – a surgeon. 1930s a lodging house and subsequently as a dwelling house. Since 1987 residential in connection with Ben’s Ice Creams.

Great Ancoats Street Sub Station
1927 – Three pairs of round headed windows on 1st floor, brick panels and entrance on ground floor. Built to convert high voltage current to low voltage for the tram network.Planning consent granted for mixed use conversion, commercial and residential.

Plus the cornerhouse, Palace and a Magic Bus; you can't get much more 'Oxford Road'.

That round bilboard thing needs air brushing out of the streetscape with a digger and a steamroller though.

EDIT, White doors i see. That's just on the edge of New Islington. Right by the new ISIS development and the Ashton canal (?) Not sure of any road names.

Nice pics all!
