One Heritage lines up next Stockport scheme

The listed developer, which also hopes to deliver Salford’s tallest tower, has lodged plans for a 35-apartment project on Wellington Street.

One Heritage’s professional team is headed by Euan Kellie Property Solutions and DAY Architects, and also includes TPM Landscape, transport adviser SK, Adapt Heritage, Tyler Grange, Wardell Armstrong, Crookes Walker and DP Squared.

In January, the developer announced the acquisition of the site, its second in Stockport, paying £670,000 for the Wellington Street site.

Th existing two-storey building dates from the 19th century and was formerly used as a printworks before being converted to offices.

One Heritage wants to add a rooftop extension, and add a part-five, part-six storey block on car park space to the rear, to create a building that will offer 35 apartments.

Of these, the original building would include 12 one-bedroom flats and three two-bedroom, while the extension would house 16 two-bedroom apartments and four with three bedrooms.

The developer’s other Stockport scheme is at 57 St Petersgate, where it is converting the former Plus House into 18 apartments with commercial space at ground floor.

Day Architects, for its part, has designed Stockport projects including Royal George Village and Piccadilly Place.

Along with the tower development in Salford’s Greengate, where contractor Midgard was appointed last year, One Heritage also has projects in Oldham, Bolton, Sheffield and Manchester, where it exchanged contracts with Maryland Securities in April for a consented site with potential for a £37m scheme.

The development’s planning reference is DC/085817.

They should get started on the first scheme instead of lining up more projects

Maybe they can finally get one out of the ground

Great to see the proposal to retain the existing Seaton House.

Please leave Stockport alone, greedy developers have ruined Manchester with hideous tower blocks and now want to ruin Stockport. Save our History, we do not want to be a clone of a big city

As if, Stockport is finally getting cleaned up, the town centre was a right state. Some nice places to eat and drink now, definitely going to be a place to be in 5-10 years.
