Boutique residential developer Taylor Rhodes Group has delivered its first development in Manchester’s New Cross, to the north of the city centre.
The former textile factory has been converted into Brooklyn Lofts, 10 loft-style apartments as the developer looks to capitalise on an area starting to undergo rapid change. A public realm strategy was signed off by Manchester City Council last year, and the area is a key part of the Northern Gateway housing strategy, sitting close to the central NOMA district.
The first residents have moved into Brooklyn Lofts, which fully sold off-plan.
Partners the group works with include architect Garry Usherwood & Associates, law firm Glenville Walker, contractor Vanguard Building & Civils, and building surveyor AA Projects.
Jake Knotman, group director, said: “We are really excited and proud to complete our first project in Manchester city centre. The development breathes new life in to an untouched part of the city centre, and it’s great to see other developers following suit in this new area of town.
“We now can’t wait to start construction on our next two schemes in Manchester and Liverpool.”
Taylor Rhodes is gearing up to start work on Union Square in Red Lion Street in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, a 38-apartment new-build project that is expected to take 14 months to complete, and has again sold off-plan.
Alongside its development plans, the business is bringing forward a property management app.
