Latest start on site for New Islington homes
Groundworks are due to begin this month on the third phase of Islington Wharf, Waterside Places’ residential project next to the Ashton Canal in East Manchester.
Eric Wright Construction is the main contractor. The buildings in the third phase were designed by Ryder Architecture.
The scheme will see 101 apartments and townhouses split between three blocks, from three to 10 storeys in height.
The homes will be built on a plot that is currently a car park, between the canal and the first phase of the development.
The car park has been closed and is being dismantled. Construction is scheduled for completion in spring 2019.
Waterside Places is a joint venture between Muse Developments and the Canal & River Trust. The first phase of Islington Wharf was developed by ISIS, a joint venture between Muse, Igloo Regeneration and the Canal and River trust. Igloo sold its share of the ISIS partnership to Muse in 2011.
