One Manchester rings the changes in Newton Heath

The housing association has tweaked its plans for a mix of houses and apartments having acquired more land off Oldham Road. 

One Manchester has submitted a planning application for 109 homes in Newton Heath, some of which will be constructed where the Rosedale Building used to stand. 

The Rosedale Building was previously the subject of proposals known as HiLux designed by Hodder + Partners that would have delivered 114 apartments across blocks behind a retained façade. 

These proposals never materialised and One Manchester acquired the site on the corner of Oldham Road and Old Church Street in 2021 for £1.2m a year after securing planning approval for 39 houses and 100 apartments on an adjacent site. 

One Manchester is on site delivering the 39 phase one houses and the fresh application seeks consent for 28 houses immediately west of the first phase and 81 apartments on the former Rosedale site. 

Effectively, the acquisition of the site has allowed the developer to shift the apartments to the corner plot. 

Tp Bennett and TPM Landscape are leading on design and Euan Kellie Property Solutions is advising on planning.

Curtins, GIA, Urban Green, Kathryn Sather & Associates, Archaeological Research Services, Jameson Associates, and Astbury make up the project team.

The council will need to keep the streets clean and enforce a clean garden system on the residents, otherwise in. Few years it will become a ghetto, 90% of the residents look after their own environment but you only need a few scruffs to drag the whole area down, so it’s up to the council to make sure that their tenants take proper care of their homes inside and outside

Will these properties be available for housing benefit claimants

Boring. Whatever else Greater Manchester is attracting it isn’t innovative design. Do the designers think that they can’t get something imaginative through the planning process or do they just have no imagination?
