Greater Manchester’s iconic tram network commenced operation on April 6 1992 as a single line running from Bury to Victoria Station. Fast forward 25 years and there are now 93 stations across seven lines.

Great Jackson Street.

Location: Manchester

Client: Private Developer

Status: Pre - planning

Size: 1.8 acres

ESA architects have been instructed by a private sector property developer to prepare outline designs for a 1.8 Acre site along Great Jackson Street in the ‘Southern Gateway’ area. These initial proposals consider a series of landmark buildings, predominantly residential, that seek to define the southern edge of the city centre.

The proposals that include hi-tech ‘hive’ offices, a hub for both resident’s and office tenants as well as parking, seek to redefine urban residential living.

The tall residential architecture provides vertical gardens, eco-environmental ideas & superior living space standards.
