Views submits £7m Levenshulme plans 

The Manchester–based developer has submitted an application for 30 apartments and 9,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space at 764-786 Stockport Road. 

Designed by Ollier Smurthwaite, the Levenshulme development comes off the back of proposals for a 42-apartment scheme in Manchester’s Curry Mile. 

On the corner of Stockport Road and Swallow Street, Views wants to create 10 one-bedroom and 20, two-bedroom apartments, as well as nine commercial units. 

A public consultation on the proposals was held in February this year. The three-building scheme will replace the existing unoccupied properties on the site.

Once complete, the scheme will have a GDV in the region of £7m, according to the developer. 

“We are very excited about our plans for 764-786 Stockport Road,” said Patrick Sheridan, senior development manager at Views. 

“[The project] has the opportunity to offer a more diverse retail offering that meets the needs of the flourishing Levenshulme community.” 

Avison Young is the planning consultant on behalf of Views.

Great to see some proper investment in Levy.


Wow, that’s surprisingly nice! Hope to see this go ahead (with the trees please, MCC).

What about parking?

I’m normally 100% for developments that discourage car use, but zero on-site parking provision for thirty new households doesn’t feel quite right here.

The scheme is on a road which gets a bus every 2 minutes and Levenshulme station is a 10 minute walk away.

Motorists need to live in the real world: this is an inner city location where space is restricted and expensive.
