Planning permission has been granted to Mulbury Homes for 64 houses in Levenshulme, on the site of a derelict former engineering works.
The scheme, by specialist housing developer Mulbury, will see the regeneration of the former Atlas Engineering Works in Chapel Street.
The project is made up of 22 three-bedroom homes, 14 four-bedroom homes and 28 two-bedroom apartments.
Work is scheduled to begin in the spring.
PWA Planning advised Mulbury on the application.
David Wroe, head of Mulbury Living, said: “This site provides an excellent opportunity to increase the supply of high-quality, sustainable family homes in Levenshulme. By regenerating a site that has fallen into disrepair, these homes will also have a significant positive impact on the local area, including a new street layout and landscaping.
“The development has been designed with respect for the existing homes in the area. They will be of a modern appearance with the use of red-facing brick and rendered gables, while the apartment block will acknowledge the architecture of the former Atlas Mill.”
