Planning permission has been granted for the conversion of one of the last remaining Manchester mills into 202 new apartments.
Following a £50m restoration, the historic mill will be returned to its former glory by Capital & Centric with many original features retained. At the centre the former courtyard is retained to provide substantial amenity space for the residents. With no parking on the site and no off-street car parks close by, the proposal is the first truly car-free development in Manchester city centre. This required SK to develop a robust transport strategy that would enable residents to live successfully without needing to own or use a car.
SK provided transport planning and highway design advice, including the preparation of the Transport Assessment and Travel Plan for the planning application.
This is the second successful project on which SK has worked alongside the ace people at Capital & Centric. For details of the Crusader Works scheme (Manchester’s best kept secret) please go here.
