Manchester Apartments

Perhaps we need a general apartment thread, seeing as apartments are starting to resurface again in and around the city centre. It sort of keeps every proposal together.

Obviously once construction starts each proposal can have it's own thread.

Good find JRB!

Hallelujah! Nick Everton House is getting some company on that side of Upper Brook St. One side of Upper Brook St looks impressive with all of the medical faculties and the growing MRI, whilst the other definitely screams edge of town, wrong side of the tracks.

It is a nightmare for any pedestrians crossing that dual carriage way across much of Upper Brook Street, which is a massive physical barrier to growth and regeneration IMO. Hopefully this is the start of a turnaround.

I like that row of traditional houses on Plymouth Grove. I'm not sure this is a particularly in keeping with the plans for the area either.

Longsight or Brunswick? I know Longsight was recently redeveloped - quite low density (2, 3, 4 floors throughout)

More good news for resi living in the city centre - the owners at The Point New Islington must be rubbing their hands together!

JLL reports strong interest in Royal Mills

7 Aug 2013, 10:33



Jones Lang LaSalle said it sold 20 apartments in the first week after releasing apartments for sale at Royal Mills on the edge of Manchester city centre.

The initial release of 40 newly converted one, two and three bedroom apartments, at the grade 2-listed development, between Northern Quarter and Ancoats, saw the purchase of 20 within seven days achieving circa £240/sq ft.

Two further release phases are planned for apartments at the 120-unit development. The refurbishment of the mills was started by ING Real Estate which sold the site to Renaker Build earlier this year.

Anthony Stankard, director of Jones Lang LaSalle, said: "Royal Mills reflects Manchester's continued evolution, with new design juxtaposing industrial heritage.

"We're planning two further release phases of the apartments but the development's initial popularity is proof high quality design will always be of interest to both local buyers and long term investors.

While demand still outstrips supply, Manchester's stock of good quality property is helping to bolster the city centre residential market."

Apartments at the development range from over 500 sq ft to upwards of 1,400 sq ft with prices starting at £119,950.

The returns seem to be quite decent for the developer, in line with prerecession/2005 valuations from my guesstimate. I hope the Murray's Mill redevelopment and refurbishment is stimulated by this positive news.

I hope Renaker Build can be trusted to complete the Murray Mills development with the same respect and high quality shown by ING Estates on Royal Mills rather than mirroring their embarrassing Bengal/NQ4 Apartments eyesore across the road.

Renaker do seem to be really heavily investing in Salford / Manchester at the moment;

Lowry Wharf Salford has just began construction, the city's tallest current U/C is being built by them at Sillivan Way and they're also the developers behind One Greengate with its 31 & 21 storey apartment blocks.

However their projects do severely lack quality unfortunately

Orrible, not private at all. Imagine the sales pitch. ''So close to your neighbours they can see what you're eating. So close to your neighbours they never need to watch porn on the telly''

Good news for that area. This should look great on the eastern approach into Manchester.

Wouldn't say I'd want to live there though - although I suppose in terms of regeneration you have to start somewhere

Wow that's great! I mean it's a bang average proposal, but there is F. all around there. NOTHING. It's sticks a flag in the dirt a distance from NoMa/Angel Meadows and says to other land owners with adjacent plots and developers with land between here and the city, that you 'can' build here and can be an important marker in moving this very fringe part of the city forward.

Of course this hasn't happened yet and until it starts, it could be purely speculating, but that in itself could be argued as positive for this much neglected area.

TBF it's opposite the Wank Quarter. Sorry, the Green Quarter. Surely to God it can't be as bad?

But yes, it's better than what's currently there.

Perhaps this will kick start the forgotten Faber Street proposal. Unfortunately panning permission has expired and they would need to re-apply. However in renders for NOMA it does appear in its approved form. Just a reminder below of what it looked like.

NB. Same architect as 1 Angel Square. Probably why it appears in renders.

8 King Street to be converted into apartments

Anyone know which one 8 King St is? Can't seem to find a picture on Google...

King Street apartment plans submitted

4 Oct 2013, 09:14

HOW Planning has submitted a full planning and listed building application for the conversion of 8 King Street in Manchester to apartments.

The upper office floors of the building were vacated by a barristers' set in 2010. The grade 2-listed building is in the St Ann Square Conservation Area of the city centre.

Owner Huron Properties wants to convert the upper floors from offices into 21 apartments.

Chris Sinton, planner at HOW Planning, said: "The upper floors of this building have been vacant since its previous occupants relocated and despite a major office refurbishment it has failed to attract new tenants.

It is in an ideal location for a new residential development and the proposed development will sympathetically restore a grade 2 listed building back to beneficial use."

It's accessed in the middle of this building on the corner of Deansgate/ King St- 21 flats is most likely the entire block above ground level.

It would be good to see more space above the buildings on King St converted to top-end apartments and pied-à-terre which may help reinvigorate the street.

Independent coffee shops & restaurants with outdoor seating areas could link the dining establishments of Brown's, Room, Jamie's, etc (at the top of King St) with San Carlo, Cichetti, etc on South King St, and into Spinningfields.

Not more ”gun metal grey?”

It reminds me of that East European decaying concrete factory-aesthetic of the VIE Building in Salford.

The reality is that this doesn’t really regenerate anything.

It just puts a cheap island building on the fringes of the city, next to two old gasworks sites- one now a traveller’s camp- and a land reclamation business

It doesn’t plug the empty gaps inside the ringroad and closer to the city like NOMA, Northern Quarter, Angel Meadow, Ancoats, New Islington, the Northern Quarter, Pollard St, and a million other half stalled “regeneration plots in the city.”

It just isn’t being built for people to actually live in but to stoke the property portfolio boom-representing the same circa 2004-08 blight which brought the system down in the first place and leaves Manchester one massive landfill site of low value communities.

This is the last corner of the city that need “opening up to development”

They’d be better bulldozing the whole area along the Irk Valley and returning it to fields.

They must have bought that land for peanuts. Most people will never know the development exists down there.
There are lots of vacant plots in great central locations that are crying out for development and then proposals like this get submitted.
Probably pushed as a fringe scheme jumping on NOMA bandwagon.
