Splash secures consent for New Islington resi

Urban Splash has received planning consent for its next phase of modular townhouses at New Islington, Manchester.

The 17 homes are to be located on Piercy Street, at its junction with Carruthers Street at the North Eastern end of the New Islington neighbourhood, close to the company’s Stubbs Mill and Chips buildings.

Each of the homes will be made at the House by Urban Splash factory in Alfreton, with blueprints for each determined by customers who will have the opportunity to command the design and layout of their three-storey, 1,500-sq ft properties. New Islinhton was also where Splash first launched its modular concept, selling out a phase of 43 houses.

NJL acted as planning consultant.

Urban Splash director of residential Guy Ackernley said: “In 2016 we unveiled our modular, modern housing proposition to the market, with much intrigue amongst customers keen to understand how they could tailor their own home.

“The residents already living in the existing Town Houses have completed their ‘Grand Designs’, and this new phase gives more buyers the opportunity to not only realise that dream, but to also own a family home, with parking and a garden in Manchester city centre.”

City Centre? …it’s not and never will be!

By Steve

Great location though and the best chippy in Manchester right next to it 🙂

I applaud Tom Bloxham’s commitment to building a different city centre product, but I do hope the final build quality is better than on the first phase – it would be a shame if development of market appetite is dampened by end-product quality.

By MancLad

Surely one of the main advantages of modular is that build quality is better as they’re produced in a controlled, factory environment?

I too admire Bloxham’s commitment to a different product but I always think these type of houses look cheap and will date quickly.

By Elephant

MancLad, agree.

Mod man, you would think… end product of Mcr Life apartments next door much better. Client lost grip of quality control a little perhaps?

By MancMan

That’s all very well and good, but that is a fairly generous (mildly put) definition of city centre. I am sure the residents of Miles Platting will be thrilled to know they border onto it!

Single ply membrane roof has to be replaced every 30 years. for a £300,000 house its a bit dissapointing
