Plans in for Old Trafford flats

MCR Property Group subsidiary Intro Developments has submitted its proposals for a 15-storey building totalling 174 apartments at Old Trafford.

The block, designed by Leach Rhodes Walker, will be built on an existing car park site to the rear of Trafford Plaza, a former Bruntwood office block acquired at the end of last year.

The stepped building will face Seymour Park, and is set to rise from 10 to 15 storeys with a mix of one and two bedroom apartments and 160 parking spaces, alongside 170 bike spaces.

Prices for the apartments have not been announced but are expected to range from £150,000 to £220,000.

The existing Trafford Plaza building already has permitted development rights permission to be converted into 90 apartments.

Regency Residential is advising Intro Developments as property agent. Roman Summer is the planner.

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

By zebith

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.

Absolutely grim this – shameful

By Manc

Very fitting for that part of the world …grim

By Adam

I suppose they can build anything in Manchester/Salford .


We have better refurbs in Salford…DIRE!!! Trafford has no ambition..Look over the water from Salford for proof…

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.
