The vision for the proposed mixed-use masterplan is a coherent, phaseable, high-quality urban environment focused on an exemplary public realm that enhances the setting of the River Irwell, embraces the site’s heritage and keys into the wider character and success of surrounding areas such as St John’s Gardens, Spinningfields and Castlefield.
At the heart of the masterplan is the imposing Victorian Bonded Warehouse building. When refurbished, this magnificent industrial building will form the centrepiece of the new district; exuding character and contributing to the creation of a distinctive sense of place.
The exclusive nature of the constituent parts making up the site - the relationship with the River Irwell, the presence of the Bonded Warehouse and the Coronation Street set – all make for a quite distinct city centre development, a unique place to live work and to visit.
