DEVELOPERS have given a flavour of what Rochdale’s £250m shopping and leisure development could look like, ahead of the submission of a planning application in the next few weeks.

While the final designs for Genr8’s Rochdale Riverside scheme have not yet been confirmed, the latest images give an idea of what it’s expected to look like.

The development is a key part of Rochdale town centre’s regeneration programme, which includes the re-opening of the River Roch and the construction of Rochdale Borough Council’s award winning customer service centre, library and office building, Number One Riverside.

High streets giants Next and M&S have already signed up to the scheme, with Reel cinema planning to open a six screen cinema in the development.

Council leader Richard Farnell, said: “This fantastic development will bring top high street names into Rochdale for the first time and give our early evening economy a much needed shot in the arm. A vibrant town centre with lots of shops and restaurants is something our residents have wanted for a long time and this scheme will deliver all this and more.”

The council-backed scheme will contain around 25 retail and leisure units, including restaurants and cafes.

An independent economic assessment of the scheme, which is set to be around 200,000sq ft in size, suggests that the proposed development will create over 1,000 permanent jobs and could be worth around £17m per year to the local economy.

The public will be given an opportunity to view the proposals at an exhibition to be displayed in Number One Riverside following the submission of the planning application.

It would be wonderful if all our warehouses in the city centre were converted to residential en-masse.

Business Desk North West.

Quote:
PERMISSION has been granted for a Grade II-listed shipping warehouse, which has lain largely untouched for almost 70 years, to be restored and turned into carbon-neutral homes in a £1.2m scheme.



Number 2 Waterloo Street in Manchester city centre is one of three buildings which used to form factory and packing warehouse Transact House.

After snapping up the five-tier building for just less than £1m developer Stephen Beech, founder of Beech Holdings, will transform it by creating eight one-bed, three studios, two Duplex and four two-bed apartments.

Beech, 38, said the company would preserve the heritage of the building and that the scheme will complete within six months.

He said: “I am delighted that we have received planning permission for Number 2 Waterloo Street from Manchester City Council.

“We feel honoured to have the support of the council to restore this beautiful building for the enjoyment of many generations to come.

“Now that the development money has officially been allocated, we will focus our efforts to ensure new tenants can enjoy beautiful carbon-neutral homes within six months.”

He added that Number 2 Waterloo Street, which was built in 1880, gives an insight into the industrial revolution, with markings of workers’ clogs in the floorboards still visible on the upper floors.

“It’s a forgotten gem and has been a ‘ghost building’ for a long time,” said the Urmston born developer, whose firm takes unloved buildings in prime Manchester locations and develops them into apartments.

“You can literally see the last people who have walked there. There are dints from workers’ steel clogs which obviously chipped away at the floor.

“I love the building’s character, its huge windows, and that Beech Holdings will be restoring it while also retaining its unique character.

“We will invest £1.2m on Number 2 Waterloo Street’s transformation and are very pleased to be doing so as, otherwise, it would have just been allowed to crumble and decay.

“Our Beech Construction arm will bring this to market within six months, with the apartments boasting tall ceilings and open light living spaces.”

It comes after Beech Holdings – the parent company of Beech Properties and Beech Construction - recently landed a £30m revolving credit finance facility, after being advised by Clearwater International.

Carbon-neutral property developer Beech Holdings, which has a gross development pipeline of over £150m, also launched its headquarters on Oxford Street earlier this summer.

No1 Castlefield | Britannia Basin
Apartments | Hulme

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...36091844<br />

  • Address: Trentham St, Britannia Basin, Hulme, Manchester M15

  • Architect: Ollier Smurthwaite

  • Floors: 5/16

  • Number of apartments: 419

  • Developer: DeTrafford

Current status: Pre Planning

Nearest transport: Cornbrook






Information about No1 Castlefield has been released in a press release from the developers, DeTrafford Estates.

Quote:
Proposals for a new development of 419 homes in Castlefield at the south west gateway to the city centre have been submitted by DeTrafford Estates to Manchester City Council. No1 Castlefield is sited at the corner of Trentham Street and Ellesmere Street and plans envisage five blocks rising from five storeys to sixteen storeys at the rear overlooking the Bridgewater Canal.

The red brick façade at the front of the development complements the scale and appearance of the neighbouring buildings and acknowledges the heritage of local mills and the nearby Castlefield Conservation Area. The glass tower will form the backdrop to the site, crowned with private roof terraces.

The development is distinguished by its outdoor space, private balconies and communal roof gardens with broad passageways formed between the blocks providing a sense of space and access to an attractive public square.

Accommodation will comprise one, two and three bedroom apartments and two and three bedroom duplexes. Top floor duplex penthouses with roof gardens
are a feature of the development while there are also innovative roof garden houses on some blocks, distinguished by their pitched roofs and access to private outdoor space. The scheme also allows for 148 underground parking spaces, with retail and commercial units providing active street frontages.

The site lies adjacent to Cornbrook Metro Interchange, a key transport hub, where there are plans for a new entrance to the station, a new hotel and associated commercial and retail development as part of the Cornbrook regeneration framework.

This neighbourhood is definitely one to watch - an example of amazing architecture which will hopefully expand the city centre out this way.

OK.

We've all been to European cities, especially capitals, and they all seem to have a stand alone tower, or towers that you make the effort to go and see. We'll these towers will be ours. Whether you are in favour of the towers or not, they will attract Mancunians, tourists, and visitors, who will ultimately go there to seem them, and wil end up using the bars, restaurants, and shops, regardless of the residential, hotel, and office aspects of the proposal.

Believe it or not, even though I'm against many aspects of this proposal, I think these two towers, due to their location 'shape', size, and colour, will eventually become iconic, and will be associated with Manchester. You could say Betham number 2, or Beetham number 3 after the 64 storey/200.5 Owen Street tower.(s)

Can any of you see where I'm coming from?( or is it the usual jrb guff?)

Via the magic of iPad. Enlarged, but not resized.

Marmite!

Greater Manchester Spatial Framework | Planning

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post136104680

The draft version of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF), Manchester's version of the London Plan, was published overnight.

The GMSF will be the most important strategic document for Greater Manchester going forward - it's essentially our version of the London Plan. It encompasses all 10 boroughs in a joined-up and cohesive megaplan which will inform policy and all types of planning in Greater Manchester up to 2035. It will be adopted in 2018 upon Mayoral approval.

The GM Spatial Framework draft document can be viewed by clicking this link.

Place North West have done a good summary of the plan which can be viewed by clicking here.


Key points
  • 227,500 new homes are needed across Greater Manchester by 2035 to support an expected increase in population of over half a million people.

  • A "brownfield land first" approach. Regenerating town centres using the residential-led approach, and concentrating the majority of new housing into the urban core - nearly half of all housing allocations will be in Manchester, Trafford and Salford.

  • 26.3 million sqft of new office space, 55% of which (11.8 million sqft) will be in Manchester city centre.

  • 87.3 million sqft of industrial space.

  • A major programme of green belt release - 4,887 hectares of green belt land (3.8% of the Greater Manchester total) will be allocated for housing development, and 55,000 family homes will be built on Green Belt land, mostly surrounding public transport hubs.

  • Bury will be the hardest hit borough in terms of green belt release - over 20% of its green belt will be taken out of protection, most of that on a major new housing development scheme at Simister Island, where the M60 meets the M66 and the M62 from Yorkshire.

  • Creation of Mayoral Development Corporations to to be run by the Mayor to help deliver housing and employment on key sites, and to ensure that development in Greater Manchester is not at the whim of the free market. There will also be an Infrastructure Delivery Plan to ensure that the necessary infrastructure is provided where development takes place.

  • Manchester City is expected to see the largest increases in economy and population and is therefore taking 24% of Greater Manchester's housing allocation (54,528 new homes, mostly in and around the city centre). Salford is next, taking 15% (34,080, again mostly in and around the city centre and Salford/Manchester border).

  • This means the population of Greater Manchester will easily hit 3.4 million by 2035 (currently 2.8 million).

  • Many developers and consultants across Manchester still believe the plan is not ambitious enough, and more allocations are needed to support Manchester's growing economy and aspirations.

Manchester is now the UK's third fastest growing city in terms of year-on-year growth, according to Cebr's City Tracker report.

http://www.propertyweek.com/data/mid...085724.article


It came behind Cambridge and Milton Keynes, and ahead of Inner London with 2.5% economic growth.





In terms of employment growth, Manchester came third behind Milton Keynes and Inner London, with 1.6% growth.
