Breathing new life into the city
A landmark residential-led mixed use development of 634 new homes in Red Bank, one of Manchester’s emerging neighbourhoods.
Homes are designed to make the most of the brilliant location, with the city stretching South and the Irk Valley to the North.
The three sculptural tower layouts stagger the arrangement of homes, so that all living spaces are dual aspect with picture windows that capture both the vibrant city and the tranquil City River Park.
A range of different house types make up the lower-level blocks, including town houses with front doors onto Bromley Street and duplex maisonettes on the upper levels.
New streets improve connectivity between the city and the River Irk.
The bricks of the nearby railway arches are echoed in the podium on which the towers sit. A grid wraps the facade and frames the double height shop fronts along Dantzic Street. The glazed residential super lobby is here too, facing on to the new public square.
