The Great Northern Warehouse and Square offer one of the most significant regeneration opportunities in Manchester city centre.

This £300 million, ten-year project will restore the historic character of the Great Northern, stripping away the modern structures that disfigure the historic warehouse and making sensitive interventions that are in tune with the quality of the site. Alongside our neighbours at St Johns, our vision is to regenerate this underperforming part of the city and create a new urban quarter that will add to Manchester’s building reputation as a world city.

In particular we aim to play our part in a city-wide initiative to bring trees and greenery into the heart of the civic centre. In phase one of the project, public space will be increased by over 25%, from around 6,200sq m to 7,850sq m and Great Northern Square reimagined to create a new urban oasis.
