No1 Castlefield | Trentham St /Ellesmere St | 16/5 fl | App

Developer: DeTrafford

Architect: Ollier Smurthwaite

Look at those gorgeous rooftop houses. I want one!!!



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 fašade 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

That would be an amazing place to live.

I am a bit concerned about the dearth of street level activity in all these blocks though. If all these developments are built there's going to be a lot of people wanting a drink/food/milk etc. who'll be fairly poorly served.

This is the kind of development we need all round the edge of town, filling out the empty sites with good density, bringing in residents, and linking up the centre with the surrounding inner city.

x50 please.

Stunning addition to Manchester. The density is becoming unreal.

That image looks like it could be the CBD/Princess Street. I like this a lot.

Oh!

Are De Trafford planning something tall? Oh, I do hope so!

Look at the render from their Facebook page. Facing Beetham. Is that the Arndale tower in front? It's got De Traffords signature smooth concrete interior finish on the ceiling.

Looks to me like they've just taken a picture of the view from CIS tower and used it in an interior shot.

Happy to be proved wrong though - maybe DeTrafford are planning on moving into N.O.M.A? Happy days if so

Yeah agreed, some of the ground units on these buildings could do with being retail. Maybe not all of the blocks, but certainly some of them.

Or maybe they are just waiting on the retail offerings of the Cornbrook hub development?

I've been lurking a while and this is my first post but I just had to say how much I love this proposal. It's so nice to see that mid rise density outside of the city centre.

This is the type of quality architecture we should be getting at St. Michaels. This development is much more in keeping with the quality of architecture Manchester should come to expect, and even more so in the heart of the city centre on a site next to the Town Hall and Library.

Massive respect for DeTrafford and OS. This area of Manchester will look very good in a couple of years time.
