Plans submitted for former Excelsior Mill Site

April 28, 2017

Planning has now been submitted for our design to transform a derelict Manchester mill into 108 luxury apartments.

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.

Tim Groom, of Tim Groom Architects, said: “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 design complements traditional and modern buildings in the vicinity while sitting comfortably alongside Castlefield’s historic core.”

The scheme will include one, two and three-bedroom apartments marketed for private sale.  Some of the apartments will come with balconies and access to a communal roof garden. A basement car park will provide on-site parking.
