Flats planned for Oldham Street gap site
Kempton Homes has submitted a planning application for 100 flats in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, designed by Hodder & Partners.
The site at 76-82 Oldham Street is currently a surface car park, but was formerly the Dobbins department store which was damaged by a fire in 2013 and then demolished.
Kempton is proposing two blocks on the site, delivering a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.
The first building would be between four- and eight-storeys high with access off of Oldham Street, while the second block would be five storeys with an entrance on Spear Street.
The range of height would create a staggered frontage on the Oldham Street side, according to artist’s impressions of the project.
Kempton Homes is based in Altrincham.
