EDAW to bring European-style living to Manchester

A £1 billion plan to transform the east end of Manchester from ‘Coronation Street to Copenhagen’ has been approved by Manchester City Council.

The 4,300 home Holt Town Waterfront development is being billed as Manchester’s largest ever regeneration scheme, and according to EDAW, the masterplanner behind the 38ha project, will create ‘high-density family living’.

The project, for developer Cibitas, will see the regeneration of a run-down, wedge-shaped plot next to the 2002 Commonwealth Games-driven Sportcity development, less than 1km from the city centre.
