Blimey, that`s a bit quick. It`s only two weeks.

Don`t like this one. Looks like a big Council built slab from the 60s.

MCC, please get rid of those pretentious, "statement" lamp posts. They're horrifically intrusive and ugly.

Nah nothing wrong with the lamp posts. What i don't like though is Urban Splash have left that street and not maintained it at all. The benches are very worn with nails sticking out, broken pieces of wood, its untidy and such a shame as it could be something unique.

No balconies?

We should not be building flats without the basic amenity of a private outdoor space.

Manchester Life do not appear interested in adding value in terms of design or sustainability and that's completely unacceptable for a part publicly owned developer. It would be rather hypocritical if the councillors approved this in light of their refusal of the Yo home block across the road.

Can't believe they not factored in any retail/restaurant provision in these developments - this street is key in linking Miles Platting to town and is barely going to be any better once these are built than the current desolate stretch it is now.

Agreed, I live in CHIPS and although it's not too far down to Great Ancoats and Aldi etc. having it over the road would be far superior....

Well it's a horrible area, any shops would have inbred chavs on bikes hanging outside abusing anybody wanting to go in, better off without I reckon.

Nowhere would ever improve if we had that attitude.

It's smack bang in the middle of an area surrounded by expensive new flats, and is a frequently used road from East Manchester into town. I don't see why shops round there wouldn't do well.

This stretch should be the centrepiece of what they've been building towards.

Blimey! It's not that bad, been here 5 years and while it's far from perfect, it's not some kind of wild no go area, sure you might see the odd 'gang' of scallies up to no good, but it's no different to anywhere really... And on a Sunny Summer day the Marina is a pretty pleasant place to be these days, plenty of families and good natured lounging and of course the loonies that swim in the canal

But I think that anything that brings more people to the area, be it shops and housing lessens the chances of said scallies hanging around, as they mostly run off when anyone confronts them or tells them to do one...

This area provides better quality of life than anycentre fringe neighbourhood.

The park along the Rochdale Canal, with the new lovell houses, the free school, the cafes in Ancoats, the Metrolink.

I don't think Ordsall, Ardwick, Hulme, Salford Central really compete.

This area is changing most rapidly into a really desireable area!

Never been around there but this area looks very odd, bit of a mess really. In the very first picture, absolutely nothing works with its surroundings. Hope this will change soon.

Approved

Quote:
The project came under criticism from councillors, who said it would “loom” over Ancoats Dispensary, and would create further traffic issues in the area. After a debate, approved with two votes to refuse.

Remember when New Islington was supposed to be cool and funky? I miss that.
