New mixed-use scheme in Manchester's historic Whitworth Street conservation area. Located on the corner of Whitworth Street and Princess Street it comprises three residential buildings surrounding an attractively landscaped and tranquil square. The vision is to create a high quality new mixed use development, to complement and enhance the important existing historic context, and to carefully and sensitively reconnect the site to its surroundings.

At ground floor level there will be a mixture of artisan restaurants and retailers, along with a private residents’ gym, lounge and 24 hour concierge. The apartments are all generously proportioned and larger than can be found in other new developments in the city. Secure basement car and cycle parking is also available.

Our elevational approach creates a contemporary reinterpretation of key characteristics of the façade treatments to contextual buildings within the conservation are. This way a modern architectural language is created based on the principles that give distinctive character to buildings within the area, in order that the new buildings integrate closely with their surroundings.
