Islington Wharf Locks, Manchester
We are currently providing MEP Performance Duties for Phase 4 of this residential development in the New Islington area of Ancoats, Manchester.
This final phase of the Islington Wharf development includes a 106-apartment complex consisting of two towers of 16 and 11 storeys situated on the corner of Great Ancoats Street and Old Mill Street.
There will be 33 one-bedroom apartments and 73 two-bedroom apartments split across 77,000 sq ft. Fifty-four of the homes will be available through shared ownership and fifty-two through private sale.
The development is being delivered by Latimer, the development arm of the housing provider Clarion Housing with Waterside Places and main contractor Morgan Sindall.
We were also involved with Phase 3 of the development, which was completed in 2019 and included 102 homes – a mixture of apartments and town houses set around a central courtyard on the banks of Ashton Canal.
Waterside Places first started building homes in this part of Ancoats over a decade ago and in that time the area has seen much growth. It is now one of the most desirable neighbourhoods to live in the city and has seen the addition of a school, new bars, restaurants and office space – and there is much more to come over the next 10 years.
