Abbey Holford Rowe was set to receive planning permission today on a 400-apartment development at Spinningfields in Manchester. The £45 million scheme is the practice's largest yet in the city and is part of a £500 million investment in the riverside area by developer Allied London and Westbury Homes. BDP has drawn up the masterplan. The scheme runs along the banks of the River Irwell. AHR partner Andy Robson described it as 'a waterside wall of light and airy apartments, intersected by brick and stone towers rising to 15 storeys to provide stunning views in all directions'. Work is due to start on site early next year.
