Cheetham Hill tower proposals emerge
Benjamin Property Company wants to redevelop a site off Park Place in Manchester into a 25-storey scheme comprising 154 apartments.
A consultation on the Cheetham Hill development, known as One Park Place, is now live. A planning application is to be submitted before the end of the year.
According to Land Registry, Manchester-based developer Benjamin Property holds an option over the site, which is owned by T&M Property Developments, a company headed up by Tayyab and Mustafa Kamani.
Designed by Hodder + Partners, the tower would offer 48 one-bedroom apartments and 108 with two bedrooms, as well as ground floor commercial units and a pocket courtyard.
United Living has been selected as the main contractor for the project and Zerum is advising on planning. Land Studio, FutureServe, Roscoe make up the project team.
The site is currently occupied by a single-storey commercial unit fronting Cheetham Hill Road and falls within the scope of the Great Ducie Street strategic regeneration framework.
The area is a growth priority for Manchester City Council along with the nearby Strangeways area, which has come under the authority’s regeneration scope recently.
Asim Ali, director of Benjamin Property Group, said: “We firmly believe that One Park Place will deliver high-quality homes and act as a catalyst for the neighbourhood’s rejuvenation, aligned to the area’s SRF and reflecting the city’s vision for growth.”
“With the increasing demand for city-centre living in Manchester, as the city continues to thrive, we take pride in offering a development that will cater to this need.”
