AHR takes over lead role in BBC Manchester drama

  • Comment

AHR has become the latest practice to work up plans for the former BBC Oxford Road site in Manchester

The Aedas offshoot, which rebranded after its split with its Hong Kong-based business arm earlier this year, revealed all-new proposals for the plot featuring 14,000m² of offices and 350 homes.

In 2012 Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Tel-Aviv-based Alex Meitlis Architecture and Design mooted plans for a 74,000m² mixed-use redevelopment of the BBC’s former Manchester headquarters (see below).

Those proposals became the strategic regeneration framework for the site and were approved by the council in 2013.

Now developer Realty Estates has appointed AHR, HOW Planning and Gardiner & Theobald to draw up more detailed plans as it begins the search for a ‘committed investor’ ahead of submitting a planning application.

The scheme replaces the RA Sparks-designed 1971 New Broadcast House which has already been demolished.
