Mulbury is close to submitting a planning application for 115 apartments for sale on the site of the collapsed Excelsior Mill in Hulme Hall Road.
The design by Tim Groom Architects and Deloitte Real Estate for the developer’s Mulbury City arm would replace the 1870 printing mill which partially collapsed in 2016 and was demolished.
The newly published Manchester Residential Quality Guidance has been followed, as required for all new applications unless justifications can be made as to why not. The one-bed flats are 50 sq m at least and two-bed three person units 61 sq m and two-bed four person follow a minimum of 70 sq m. Mulbury said these are 5% to 10% larger than typical apartments built in Manchester during the past decade.
The nine-storey building would be accessed from the towpath of the Bridgewater Canal and the road above, leading to the bridge onto St George’s Island. There will be 24 parking spaces and cycle storage for each apartment.
