27-29 Ellesmere really reminds me of this building in London. Very pleasing on the eye in real life, for me at least.

STRIKING new images of DeTrafford Estates’ proposed No1 Castlefield development in Manchester reveal plans for innovative rooftop houses with private terraces and access to landscaped gardens.

The distinctive duplex houses, with their pitched roofs and chimneys, offer a modern take on the traditional terraces in the area and are part of a submission for 419 new homes submitted 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, in keeping with existing street-facing buildings, to a 16-storey glass tower 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 tower will form the backdrop to the site and feature internal winter gardens providing covered amenity all year round as well as access to private roof terraces.

Accommodation will comprise one, two and three bedroom apartments, two and three bedroom duplexes and top floor duplex penthouses with roof gardens which are a feature of the development. The scheme also allows for 144 underground parking spaces, with retail and commercial units providing active street frontages.

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.

The site lies adjacent to the Cornbrook Metro Interchange, a key transport hub at the south west gateway to the city, 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.

Michael Walsh, commercial director for DeTrafford Estates said: “These proposals are part of our continuing commitment to residential development in Castlefield with 379 new homes already in the pipeline.

“Our nearby Manchester Gardens scheme has seen planning approvals for The Sky Gardens, City Gardens and St George’s Gardens, with the award nominated Roof Gardens – One Ellesmere Street due for completion Q1/Q2 2017.

“No1 Castlefield continues our philosophy of providing high quality homes with attractive outside space. Subject to planning permission, we look forward to making a start next year.”

PLANNING permission has been granted for two major tower blocks in Salford to be built by the English Cities Fund.



Planning consultancy DPP’s Manchester office has secured approval for an 11-storey building as part of the ongoing regeneration scheme in the New Bailey area.

It will provide 260,000sq ft of B1 office floor space and 90,000sq ft of commercial ground floor space.

The building is designed by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris to complement the recently completed One New Bailey development which houses law firm Freshfields Brcukhause Deringer and restaurant Menagerie.

DPP has also achieved planning permission in Salford for four new apartment buildings with up to 843 new units, a 33-storey tower, multi-storey car park and space on the ground floor for commercial units.

Both developments are part of the Salford Central Masterplan.

The development, created by architect AHR, borders both the St Johns and Middlewood Locks developments.

John Francis, director at DPP’s Manchester office said: “It’s an exciting time to be involved in the regeneration of Salford and these changes reflect the current market trends and the changing cityscape of the area.”

DPP has been planning advisers to English Cities Fund, which is a partnership of Muse, Legal& General and HCA, on the Salford Central project for 10 years.

DPP’s is currently working on a number of projects including a new town centre anchor for retail and leisure development in Rochdale town centre, a mixed- use development at Sowerby Bridge and Ocean Park, a major new sea food orientated processing employment park in Fleetwood.

Larger render of the DeTrafford scheme in Britannia Basin.

This is how I want Manchester to develop. Can we please use this project as a template for a new Manchester vernacular?

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post129979140

  • Address: Plots 1, 2, 3 & 4 Owen St, Great Jackson, City Zone Manchester M15

  • Architect: Simpson-Haugh

  • Floors: 64, 50, 44, 37

  • Height: 200.5m, 158m, 140m, 122m

  • Number of apartments: 1,400

  • Completion: for Tower 1 & Tower 4: 2018. For Tower 2 & Tower 3: 2020

  • Developer: Renaker

Current status: Towers 1 & 4 at Under Construction, Towers 2 & 3 Approved

Nearest transport: Deansgate Castlefield:






Update by AC1. The towers will have three levels of basement car parking beneath them (see diagrams below). The hole in the photo below has reached maximum depth. This effectively means that work can now begin on Tower 4 (44 floors, 140m).






The wall you see on the far side of the hole on the photo above is shown below in this diagram. It's the retaining wall separating the River Medlock from the site. A new riverside park will be built fronting the (small & narrow) river






Tower 4 is shown on the far left in this diagram, and will be the first to start rising - followed by Tower 1 (64 floors, 200.5m)

The North West region, which Manchester is a part of, is due to see house price increases of 18% by 2021, and prices here will rise 2% in 2017 alone.

This is much higher than the UK average, and London.

It is also despite Brexit uncertainty, which JLL are predicting will have short-to-medium term effects.

House prices set for 18% increase by 2021, says JLL

Skyrocketing house prices are not neccessarily a good thing, especially in a city like Manchester with a high proportion of renters. 18% in 5 years though is not ridiculous levels of price growth and the NW is currently one of the most affordable regions so there is room for some growth without negatively impacting on living costs too much.

In terms of Brexit confidence effects on house prices I would think that will mostly affect areas with a lot of international buyers, namely London. The rest of the country will be affected more if Brexit starts to feed through into troubles for the general economy.

Crane Count


In the last update, I had hoped we would hit 30 by now. In fact we did actually hit 27. However, as is always the problem with Crane Counts, projects start nearing completion in quick succession so now we're back down at 22. However, we do have a lot of projects (big projects!) now just starting to gear up, so hopefully by November we'll hit 30?


Salford
- Wilburn Basin (1 crane)
- New Bailey, Stanley St (1 crane)
- Adelphi Wharf (2 cranes)
- Exchange Court (1 crane)
- Middlewood Locks (1 crane)


Salford Quays
- X1 MediaCity (1 crane)
- Clipper’s Quay (3 cranes)


East
- Union St New Islington (2 cranes)


Peter's Fields/South Central
- 1 Water St (1 crane)
- 1 Spinningfields (2 cranes)
- 8 First St (2 cranes)


Universities
Crowne Plaza/UoMBS (2 cranes)
Circle Square Phase 1 (3 cranes)





Total: 22 cranes (November 1st, 2016)

  • This development update charters the first three month period where we know the results of the EU referendum. At the last update - in August - post-referendum Britain had only existed for a month and a half. This means that this update can be used to find the early effects of Brexit Britain on Manchester's development economy.

  • Manchester currently has more projects under construction than it has since the previous economic boom. The amount has slowly
    been steadily increasing since the beginning of 2016.




  • The number of projects holding planning applications (but which aren't under construction) is always on the rise, we seem to always have a pretty constant pipeline of projects in Manchester which ensures that construction will continue way into the future. The number of projects currently making their way through the city's various planning departments (including those waiting to start construction) now stands at 163 (up from 155 in August). With both construction and planning application numbers steadily rising, it would be safe to conclude that the development economy in Manchester remains healthy.





  • The number of completed projects (on which construction has stopped, including internal works, and the building or structure is occupied/open) has decreased from 13 in August 2016 to 8 now. Notable completions include the tower at Wilburn Wharf, and Renaker's Two Greengate project in Salford.

  • The number of projects under construction (on which construction activity has begun, in the form of diggers, of drills or of cranes etc) has increased again from 86 to 93. There's potential for this number to hit 100 by summer 2017 if this current trend continues, although there are a number of projects now nearing completion which may challenge this.

  • The number of projects which are 'Shovel Ready' (on which construction has a high chance of beginning by the next Update in three months time) has increased from 24 to 28. Shovel ready projects are the nearest to starting construction, so that this has also risen is a good sign.

  • The number of projects holding planning approval has increased from 86 in August to 88 now. There was an almost endless stream of planning committees by the various city councils between May and August which led to a large rise in the number of projects holding approval. While more than just two applications have been approved this quarter, a number have already moved up into Groundworks or even Construction, which means the increase isn't as notable.

  • Projects holding a planning application which hasn't yet been approved stands at 47, Up from 45 in August.

  • The number of "Red" projects (those which are masterplans or visions without a planning application, not including framework applications) has decreased from 60 to 58 now.




Large-scale project news
  • Construction continues at Renaker's Owen St project. The tallest element - Tower A - will be Manchester's tallest building upon completion, at 200.5m/64 floors. Piling has now completed at the site's Tower D, which will be 44 floors and 140m, construction will start here first. Hopefully by the next update in February 2017 we'll see a core rising on this site.

  • Bupa have now begun construction on their new Salford Quays headquarters - which will be 6 storeys tall.

  • X1 have begun construction on Coda Studio's 21 storey The Gateway development, also at Salford Quays, which will contain 191 apartments.

  • Construction has now begun on the Axis Tower at Deansgate Locks, which will be 28 stories tall and contain 173 apartments. At 93m, it will stand 24m shorter than 5 Plus Architect's 10-12 Whitworth St tower, which has now started groundworks.

  • DeTrafford have started construction on 27-29 Ellesmere St, which will contain 232 apartments. Next door, DeTrafford have also now announced No1 Castlefield - a stunning development by Ollier Smurthwaite which will contain 419 apartments.

  • Manchester Life have begun construction on 158 new apartments at Sawmill Court in Ancoats (Jersey St).

  • Groundworks have started at Dandara's 995-apartment scheme at Chapel Wharf, Salford: and groundworks have also begun at Adelphi Wharf's Phases 2 and 3.

  • The Trafford Park Metrolink line has been given TWAO approval, meaning it can now start construction: workmen have already been spotted clearing plants and vegetation along the route ready for its imminent construction.

  • Muse's 520-apartment/150,000sqft office development at New Victoria next door to Victoria station has been approved, as has Manchester Life's 201-apartment development at Weaver's Court.

  • St John's Place has been approved. As well as three other buildings, this development contains a 52-storey, 168m skyscraper.

  • After much deliberation, Yo! Homes won approval for its folding-home apartment complex in New Islington.

  • Vivere Group have lodged a planning application with Salford City Council for their 525-apartment CityView scheme off Regent Road in Ordsall.

  • Fred Done has announced plans for a 183-apartment scheme off Church St in the Northern Quarter, to be named CituNQ, while Fortis have announced plans for a 645-apartment masterplan scheme at Fortis Quay (Salford Quays). The masterplan includes a 27-storey tower.

  • Salford Council have announced their wishes to create an 800-acre "City Forest Park" in the Irwell Valley, on the Salford-Bury border.

Apartments

Summary of facts
  • There are now just over 5,000 apartments under construction across central Manchester, Salford Quays and Trafford.
  • You can view the full list of apartments, quantity of apartments, planning status, borough, developer and architect by clicking this link. I won't post it here because it's quite sizeable.

  • There's a healthy pipeline of apartments across all boroughs, with the City Zone taking up the most pipeline with just over 16,000 apartments planned and/or Under Construction. This is closely followed by central Salford with over 12,400. Overall, there is a total of nearly 39,000 apartments planned and/or Under Construction across Manchester.



  • 8,373 homes currently have planning permission to start construction, and there are over 4,000 new homes currently going through the planning system across central Manchester.

  • Renaker remains the most active developer in the city, with nearly 3,000 apartments in their pipeline - followed by X1 with 1,802. Renaker and X1 also lead on the number of apartments under construction, however with Cambridge St, One Regent and Wilburn Wharf all looking to complete construction soon this reign may soon be over for now.






Another good three months for apartment construction, however there has been a bit of a slowdown compared to the three months to August 2016. In Salford, Wilburn Wharf Block A and Two Greengate both completed construction at once - meaning Salford's count fell quite sharply and wasn't picked up by the number of projects starting construction. With Dandara now beginning development at their 995-apartment Chapel Wharf development, the Salford count is set to increase once more.





This graph shows total apartments U/C and total apartments with a planning app.

Huge rises in both the City Zone and Salford Quays bolstered by numerous large projects now going into planning in both boroughs. Salford has recovered from its August low point where Middlewood Locks Phase 1 began construction, taking those apartments out of the 'in planning but not under construction' section.









Hotels

Summary of facts
  • The total number of hotel bedrooms in the pipeline has increased since August - from 3,170 to 3,380.

  • The majority of new hotel bedrooms in the pipeline are located in the City Zone - which contains 2,819 of the total, up from 2,609 in August.

  • There are 632 hotel bedrooms under construction across Manchester currently.






Full list:








Offices

Summary of facts
  • 1.2 million sqft of office space under construction across all boroughs - up from 1 million sqft in August.

  • The majority of this is located in the City, which has 5.4 million sqft in the total pipeline.

  • Total pipeline is at nearly 7.8 million sqft.




Full list:








Tall Buildings

Everyone's favourite!
  • Since the last tall buildings update, Trinity Islands has been redesigned which has thrown speculation onto exactly how tall the towers here will be. What we do know is that Trinity Fields tower 1 will be 64 stories, so using St John's Place floorheights I calculated the total height to be roughly 196m, tipping Beetham by quite a margin to become the second tallest planned Manchester building.

  • St John's Place has now been approved.

  • BILT have launched a planning application for City View in Salford - which will rise 82m above Regent Road in Salford to become Manchester's 48th tallest building.






Next update will be at the start of February 2017.
