Developer Views is preparing to lodge an application for a 48-home scheme featuring six ground floor retail units on Wilmslow Road in Rusholme.
Views has held pre-application discussions with Manchester City Council and has launched a public consultation on its proposals.
Designed by Ollier Smurthwaite Architects, the redevelopment of 98 Wilmslow Road features a new-build four-storey block comprising a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments.
The ground floor of the Curry Mile project is to include six commercial units ranging in size from 290 sq ft to 1,680 sq ft.
The site is located on the corner of Wilmslow Road, famed for its high concentration of South Asian restaurants, and Grandale Street.
At present, the site is occupied by a two-storey commercial building, most recently occupied by Purples Dessert and Grill, and a surface level car park.
The design of the project is informed by local buildings including the former depository further north on Wilmslow Road, which stood between the 1870s and 1980s.
Avison Young is the planning consultant for the project.
The consultation on the scheme ends on 6 September. You can access the consultation and see its plans for yourself at planningconsultations.avisonyoung.co.uk/WilmslowRoad.aspx.
