Alsop Architects has produced this £200 million plan for New Islington - the east Manchester Millennium Village being developed by Urban Splash.The plan links the Rochdale and Ashton canals with a new waterway. Six new inlets spread like fingers, creating 3,000m of canalside along with 1,400 new homes, offices, shops, restaurants, a school and health centre.The scheme aims to facilitate more sustainable ways of living and working. Alsop said: 'It will not be just a place to live but also a place to visit and pass through.No more estate ghettoes - instead the richness of urban living integrating water, streets, gardens, work, live and play.'
