Plans in for Old Trafford flats

Tannen Group, a London-based developer, has submitted a planning application to Trafford Council to deliver a block of 90 apartments in place of a hotel scheme approved in 2014.

Ropetune, a subsidiary of Tannen, has lodged plans for a 10-storey building at 86 Talbot Road, designed by Leach Rhodes Walker.

Planning permission was granted in 2014 for a 126-bedroom hotel, on the site of an office which has since been demolished.

The plot is near to Lancashire County Cricket Club, which recently started on site with a £12m Hilton Garden Inn Hotel at the Emirates Old Trafford ground.

Old Trafford is seeing a rise in residential schemes being brought forward in the area. North Point Global is due to complete next year on 89 apartments at what is currently a surface car park on Warwick Road, and nearby on Skerton Road, Pinnacle Alliance is delivering the office-to-resi conversion of Grove House, into 98 apartments.

Zerum is advising Tannen on the planning application.

This looks more like a bad refurb of 1960s council flats. Awful.

Agree. This looks like those places they have dolled up on Oldham road.Would this London-based developer be building this overlooking Lords?

By Elephant

Looks like something they’d build in the Baltic Triangle.

Raise your expectations Trafford! Next door to the Town Hall…

Some green public realm and a clear, welcoming entrance are easy wins

I couldn’t agree more.

Shocking render – a crayola generated image?

Crayola, draws the Flats from Mary, Mungo and Midge.

A unicorn died when this monstrosity was unveiled on the world

By zebith

Thousands of pounds spent on various planning application documents, weeks of assessment by Planning Officers, hours of none sense spoken by our lovely Council Members and then at the end of this we see garbage like this come out of the ground.

And please don’t say that this is only an application – Trafford MBC waved through a monstrosity put forward by Peel at Pomona Docks and will be sure to do the same here. This lets down the people of Trafford and Greater Manchester and gives planners and the wider system a very bad name.

The building looks out dated before it has even been built! Shameful for all those involved.
