Reid to leave its footprint on Manchester

  • Comment
Reid Architecture's plans for a £70 million mixed-use scheme in a run-down part of Manchester city centre have been approved.

The huge Redbank scheme for Cheltenham-based developer Satnam Investments, is sited near the city's Victoria Station and will include 500 residential units, 3,250m2 of commercial space and parking for 630 cars.

The development is split into three 'fingers' that rise in height from the banks of the River Irk at the south-eastern boundary towards a high point of 60m at the most northerly end of the site; a design that Reid said would 'accentuate the contours of the valley and reflect them in the proposed massing'.

The three shoe-shaped blocks will feature landscaped gardens and roof terraces overlooking the city.

Work on the scheme - Reid's first foray into Manchester - is pencilled to start in Spring 2008.

Images of the scheme can be seen here, here and here.
