Mulbury plans in for £26m Castlefield flats

Mulbury has submitted its plans for 108 apartments for sale, on the site of the derelict Excelsior Mill in Hulme Hall Road.

The developer revealed the designs for the £26m project by Tim Groom Architects last month.

The scheme will see the site of the former printing and book binding works used to build an eight-storey development next to the Bridgewater Canal.

The site has been vacant since the building partially collapsed in July 2015 and had to be demolished.

The one, two and three-bedroom apartments will be marketed for private sale. Some of the apartments have balconies and access to a communal roof garden. A basement car park will provide on-site parking.

James Alderson, head of Mulbury City, the company’s city centre residential division, said: “This is an important scheme for Castlefield because it fills in a vacant plot along the canal.

“It also brings back an active frontage to the canal towpath with its double-height entrance. We’ve had overwhelmingly positive feedback so far on the design of the scheme.”

Deloitte Real Estate provided planning advice to Mulbury.
