Developer PJ Livesey has revealed plans to create 57 new build and converted homes at the former AstraZeneca campus in Cheshire.
The Trafford Park-based company’s plans are centred around the park’s historic courtyard and include 17 converted two- and three-bedroom mews houses and three-storey townhouses. An extension to the grade two-listed upper courtyard buildings would create 17 new three- and four-bedroom homes, designed by Brewster Bye Architects.
The application also proposes an apartment block designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, which would face onto the park’s Water Garden and comprise 23 two- and three-bedroom flats.
PJ Livesey’s application forms part of a £160m masterplan for the 400-acre Alderley Park, outlined by owners Bruntwood and Manchester Science Partnerships, which includes up to 275 homes, new sports and leisure facilities, a gastro pub, hotel and farm shop.
PJ Livesey managing director, Peter Livesey said: “This is a rare opportunity to build a mix of high quality housing to create a legacy development in this very special location.”
Chris Oglesby, chief executive of Bruntwood said: “We are delighted to see PJ Livesey submit this application for such a sensitive and exciting development at Alderley Park. Our vision is for a unique new community on this important and historic site and it’s great to see this taking shape.”
If the plan is approved, work on the scheme would begin this spring with the first homes available in early 2018.
The project team includes Feilden Clegg Bradley, Brewster Bye Architects, Planit-IE and HOW Planning.
PJ Livesey are advised by Slater Heelis.
