Hi! I'm new. Anyone know if this is still going ahead? I live opposite and have not seen anything happen! The mechanics are still operating and everything! Can't wait to see these go up even if it is going to be a bit noisy!

The site has been cleared hasnt it?
This is going between the industrial units and where you live. The renders are a bit naughty because they dont show the units on Chester road.
I think this scheme will happen

Hi Longford,

Yeah the site has been cleared but I've not saw one person even take a look at it for months and I thought there would be some kind of site entrance by now at least?

There are foundations being put down for a small apartment scheme (Counrtryside's 'Union') further down Ellesmere Street but nothing at Ino/Yoana.

I didn't realise they were going to squeeze the building next to the mechanics - poor guy and yes...very naughty with the renders. They must envisage him not being there on completion!

Regards.

The 1.15 acre cleared site has been put up for sale by Circa Life via Frank Knight.

Does that mean the apartments are no longer going up?

That means someone else will buy it and build either the same thing(which is quite common) or do something different.

Does indeed. Fascinating the shift from apartments back to lower density townhouse/mews/terraced house schemes. Seems to be a few sites going this way.

The Roof Gardens – One Ellesmere Street


The DeTrafford Estates Group development The Roof Gardens – One Ellesmere Street provides residents with all the luxuries of suburban life in the city centre of Manchester. Each of the 49 Townhouses and 22 Apartments within this brand new development will be finished to the highest standards, equipped with bespoke tailored kitchens and access to private, individual private roof gardens.

The roof gardens are an innovative addition, drawing inspiration from New York, London and Amsterdam will become the first of its nature within Manchester. Privacy is ensured within each roof garden heaven, with a storey high louvred screen, transforming a four storey townhouse into five. The roof gardens all enclosed by corten steel and surfaced by quality timber flooring. The roof gardens when illuminated will present the building with a glowing orange crown at night.

The Roof Gardens – One Ellesmere Street’s selection of property types is accessible to all. There are nine 4 storey 4 bed townhouses, thirty 3 storey 3 bed townhouses, ten 4 storey 2bed townhouses and twenty two 1 bed apartments. The high ceiling rooms are filled with an abundance of natural light, augmenting the prestige of the bespoke fittings and fixtures.

The internal courtyards enable off-street parking for residents, with many of the Townhouses also benefiting from garage parking. The Townhouses further possess ground floor home-offices or studies, making One Ellesmere Street the perfect location to integrate small businesses within the home and with the option of fixing your own business plaque.

The innovative concept of The Roof Gardens – One Ellesmere Street is epitomised by Savills Estates Agents who described it as, “an exciting, innovative and unique solution that will excite buyers”.

Good find, quite a few renders on there. It was approved in May, and it looks like tenders are due by the end of this month.

I agree, for East Manchester and Salford too. Larger apartment buildings for the main roads or adjacent to tram stops, these for the infill.

A good place for this sort of building would be Middlewood locks... Knott Mill too...

Very classy - more, more. (Although maybe with a wee bit of retail provision...)

It's neat, I like it too.

I'd have liked maybe one or two more floors though, considering the apartment blocks across the road from this site are about 5-6 floors it'll be a little overshadowed...

Note to prospective buyers, I think the Arundel St side would be best, opposite St George's, views of the city centre, least overlooked and South facing windows on courtyard side.
