Plans by HAUS for a series of park-side residential developments in Manchester were revealed at MIPIM UK last week
Four sites, totalling 0.96ha and dubbed Angel Meadows, within the Co-Operative-backed NOMA neighbourhood are being brought to the market.
Fringing Angel Meadow Park, the plot close to Victoria Station has been identified by the council-led Manchester Place partnership as one of the major residential growth areas for the city, with the potential for around 500 new homes.
David Pringle director of NOMA at The Co-operative Group, said: ‘NOMA’s Angel Meadow sites have potential to redefine city centre living. The centrepiece will be a reinvigorated public park offering Manchester its first park-facing, high end housing opportunity.’
The Angel Meadow plots are the first phase of the Northern Gateway, an area of land northwards from the station and including New Cross, The Irk Valley and Collyhurst, with the potential for 7,000 homes.
Deborah McLaughlin chief executive at Manchester Place, said: ‘Sitting alongside the NOMA neighbourhood, [Angel Meadows] will support the exciting plans led by The Co-operative Group and Hermes Investment Management to create a new mixed use destination for the North West.
‘The city continues to grow with the population expected to reach 600,000 and we must push the pace of residential development to keep pace with this economic and jobs growth.’
McLaughlin added: ‘We are planning for the long term and want partners who share the same ambition of quality and place making.’
‘We have already seen a substantial amount of interest in residential development in Manchester from a range of investors both national and international and we are keen to start serious discussions to bring sites forward.’
When completed the 8ha NOMA neighbourhood will include new homes, offices, hotels, retail and leisure facilities with urban spaces and public realm.
