In pictures: New vision for Manchester civil campus

Bennetts Associates has revealed its vision for how the area surrounding Manchester’s Piccadilly station could look

The masterplan, which goes to public consultation in July, outlines plans for a new civil service campus that would house up to 5,000 workers.

Bennetts Associates director Julian Lipscombe said: ‘The campus is aiming for high sustainability ratings. This is a conscious move from the government to show they are leading the way by creating a new generation of buildings that are highly sustainable.’

The masterplan focuses on the former Mayfield railway station and covers an area bordered by the inner ring road to the south, Fairfield Street to the north and London Road to the west.

To maximise the regeneration potential the proposals have also been considered in the context of a wider city centre study area extending from Ardwick to the south, Aytoun Street to the north and Whitworth Street to the west.
