Manchester-based developer DeTrafford Estates Group has submitted a planning application for a mixed-use development including 160 flats at a site on Chester Road.
Designed by Ollier Smurthwaite Architects, the scheme includes 154 apartments in one 12-storey block with six ground-floor commercial units, and a second four-storey building with six apartments and two more commercial spaces. The designs feature a community square in the centre of the development.
The apartments are to include a mix of housing types, with three-bedroom triplex apartments and one- and two-bedroom duplex apartments with communal roof terraces.
The 0.5 acre site is bounded by Chester Road and Bentinck Street and is currently occupied by three light industrial units.
Paul Butler Associates is the agent on the planning application.
DeTrafford is led by director Gary Jackson and is the developer behind the Sky Gardens and Roof Gardens residential scheme at One Ellesmere Street.
