Soller completed the complex assembly of this prime development site in 2020 following a 6-month acquisition period. The site is located between Lever street and Great Ancoats street in Manchester’s rapidly rising Northern Quarter. Soller has had a successful pre-app meeting with the council and is aiming to achieve planning consent for a mixed-use development of c.130,000 ft2 in 2022. The scheme will be developed according to strict ESG guidelines and will target a BREEAM Excellent rating, EPC A rating, WELL ‘Gold’ accreditation and have a Wiredscore ‘Platinum’ rating for its connectivity.
But retaining one side is more coherent? Okay then.I'm not sure why the new building would retain a few random facades for the sake of it. Think it would look a bit incoherent.
The Lever Street side has repurposed the existing buildings so that's not an indication that they will retain the existing facades on the other sides. From the CGI it looks like the building extends to where the existing buildings are on Houldsworth Street and GAS so I'd assume they'd all be demolished.
With each new development we've had more paving on GAS, hopefully it'll be the same here not a fan of the flexipave!
