JM Architects wins go-ahead for more Islington Wharf homes

JM Architects has bagged planning permission for this 46-home scheme at Islington Wharf, Manchester

The project marks the second phase of the wider regeration of the canalside scheme following the completion of the initial stage by Broadway Malyan in 2008.

Backed by Isis, which is owned by the Canal & River Trust and Muse Developments, the terraced-house, family home scheme will sit on a vacant site currently used as a temporary car park.

A spokesman for Isis said: ‘The homes will have low energy demand and will meet the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, which means a 25 per cent reduction in carbon emissions against standard Building Regulations.’
