One Manchester plots Newton Heath scheme
Housing provider One Manchester has submitted plans for a 139-home development on Oldham Road, Manchester.
The 2.7-acre site is split into two. The western plot, the larger of the two and flanked by Dulverton Street, covers 81,000 sq ft while the eastern plot, off Droylsden Road, covers 44,000 sq ft.
The two plots are dissected by Newton Street, at the end of which is the grade-two listed Newton Silk Mill.
The plans propose the demolition of the existing YES Group building, on the western site, and the erection of 100 apartments and 39 townhouses.
The apartments will be a mix of one and two-bedroom offers while the houses will be a mix of two and three bedrooms.
The scheme will vary between two and six storeys in height.
The project team includes TP Bennett as architect, TPM as landscape architect and Euan Kellie Property Solutions as planner.
Curtins has conducted the flood risk assessment as well as advising on transport and travel.
The Hodder & Partners HiLux 114-apartment scheme, which incorporates Rosedale House, is situated to the west of the proposed development.
One Manchester was formed from a merger between two of Manchester’s largest housing associations – City South and Eastlands Homes – in 2015. It owns and manages more than 12,000 homes in central, south and east Manchester, according to its website.
L2 Property, as co-owner of the site, is the joint-applicant for the project.
