Manchester City Council is set to approve the development of 550 apartments, a hotel, and 350,000 sq ft of offices at its planning committee meeting next week.
At the 20-acre NOMA site, the Co-operative Group and Hermes Real Estate are due to be granted planning consent for 350,000 sq ft of offices split over two blocks. 2 and 3 Angel Square will be nine-storeys and 11-storeys high respectively, and both were designed by AHR Architects. Deloitte was the planner.
The ISIS Waterside Regeneration Partnership has submitted plans for the third phase of development at New Islington, a 101-apartment scheme across three buildings in Old Mill Street. The site is currently used as a temporary car park and is owned by Manchester City Council. JM Architects designed the project, while Deloitte advised on planning.
Planning officers have also recommended for approval the development of a 35-storey tower made up of 330 apartments for private rent, with a bar, library, gym and rooftop garden at 10-12 Whitworth Street West by Brigantes, designed by 5plus Architects. A decision on the scheme was deferred from the council’s planning committee meeting in October due to an administrative error.
In the Northern Quarter, the council will consider plans from EasyHotel for a 116-bedroom hotel within the grade two-listed Bradley House. EasyHotel acquired the building in June, and will be the second hotel for the company in the North West. The planner on the project was HOW Planning.
Also in the Ancoats area of the city, Kildareman Development Company has put forward plans for a 13-storey tower made up of 119-apartments, two ground floor retail units and a gym. The scheme is bounded by Great Ancoats Street and will include a new public square. IDP Group is the architect.
As part of Peel and Rowlinson’s 164-apartment Pomona Wharf project next to the rail viaduct at the St George’s end of Pomona Island, the council is also expected to approve the creation of 71 parking spaces under the railway arches near to Hulme Hall Road. Nicol Thomas is the architect.
