Capital&Centric reveals £28m plans for Piccadilly East apartments

Ferrous will have 107 homes, a rooftop residents’ gardens, two café-bars and two pocket parks if approved as initially designed.

Capital&Centric has started a consultation on the scheme, which would takeover .4 acres on Chapeltown Street in Manchester.

In addition to the green spaces already planned, Ferrous will have “The Cabin” – a pop-up event space nestled within one of the pocket parks.

Ferrous would sit close to two other projects from the developer: the still-under-construction, 123-apartment Crusader and the Shedkm-designed, 75-apartment Phoenix.

“Piccadilly East is fast becoming a neighbourhood with real personality and we’re chuffed to be bringing forward the next part of the jigsaw with Ferrous,” said Capital&Centric co-founder Tim Heatley.

“Not only will it bring in more residents, it’ll create a place for the community to hang out. The outdoor pocket parks and the Cabin will be the perfect space for a programme of foodie residencies or pop-up community events.

“We really wanted to continue the ethos we established from the get-go at Piccadilly East, with design-led, spacious homes and a proper community vibe where people know their neighbours,” Heatley continued. “It’s been awesome seeing residents get to know each other at the Piccadilly East puppy parties and art battles, and with Ferrous there’s a lot more to come.”

Capital&Centric plans to submit plans for Ferrous to Manchester City Council later this year. You can learn more about Ferrous by going to
