Ancoats revamp continues with housing plans - images

  • Comment
The on-going regeneration of the Ancoats area of Manchester has taken another step forward after designs for this housing development were submitted for planning.

Arcornia, the in-house architecture department of developer Artisan, lodged its designs with Manchester City Council earlier this week. 'Heart of Ancoats' is located on a 0.5ha site spanning either side of Blossom Street in Ancoats.

It comprises one-, two- and three-bedroom townhouses and apartments with commercial and retail space.

Artisan's chairman and founder, Carol Ainscow, said: 'We've designed low-rise town houses for the site to complement the surrounding buildings. We are confident that our vision will be given the go-ahead and we can start on site as soon as possible.'

The firm claims that its 'flexible' decision to build apartments above town houses will allow these apartments to be easily 'merged' with the town houses in the future.
