By 'eck. AHR unveils proposals for former Boddingtons site

AHR's proposed scheme for the former Boddingtons Brewery site in Manchester
  • Comment

Plans for the transformation of the former Boddingtons Brewery site in Manchester by AHR Architects have been submitted for planning.

Proposals for a new mixed use scheme could deliver more than 1,000 private rented apartments, plus 18,500m² of office space and 7,400m² of retail and leisure units.

The scheme, backed by Realty Estates and dubbed UX Manchester, will sit next to the city’s Victoria Station and Manchester Arena on the inner ring road.

Yousef Tishbi, chief executive of Realty Estates, said: ‘UX Manchester will provide an ideal home for ambitious businesses and the growing young professional community.’

The Boddingtons brewery was closed by owner Interbrew (now InBev), despite it being profitable, in order to realise its development value.

It was earmarked for a new development by HOK Architects in 2007, but the scheme faltered due to the recession.

Last year the council approved a new strategic masterplan for the wider area aimed at attracting textile businesses and new housing.
