We have received planning approval from Manchester City Council for our 108 luxury apartment scheme on the former Excelsior Mill site.
The scheme located in the historic Castlefield area of Manchester, looks to revive the site of a former printing and book binding works into a high-quality eight-storey development adjacent to the Bridgewater Canal. The development provides a solution for the brownfield site which has been vacant since the building partially collapsed in July 2015 and had to be demolished.
The design responds to the distinct Manchester context of Castlefield and the turn in the canal. We have looked to reinterpret the architectural history of the site and the old-fashioned printing trays in some of the ornamentation around the building entrances at roadside and canal edge.
The proposed £26M scheme will start on site in early 2018.
