Urban Splash selects designs for its ‘Tutti Frutti’ Street in New Islington

Urban Splash has selected 20 designs for its ‘Tutti Frutti’ terraced street in New Islington, Manchester.

Urban Splash has selected 20 designs for its ‘Tutti Frutti’ terraced street in New Islington, Manchester.

The scheme – which will create one of the UK’s most unique streets – is part of SMC Alsop’s masterplan for the Manchester-based developer.

The AJ understands that Urban Splash is seeking six further houses to complete the terrace.

Urban Splash spokeswoman Lisa Ashurst said the competition is based on Dutch landscape architect West 8’s canalside Borneo Sporenburg scheme in Amsterdam.

‘We had an Urban Splash party in Amsterdam and [Urban Splash director Nick Johnson] turned to me and said “we have to do this”,’ she said.

The scheme, which has the backing of Manchester City Council, is due to go in for planning early next year.
