Property Developer Receives Major Planning Approval for Manchester City Centre

Manchester property developer Renaker has been granted full planning permission for two residential, 51-storey towers that will provide 988 high-quality new homes.

Located within the Great Jackson Street masterplan, near Deansgate at the southern end of the city centre, each building will have its own extensive residents’ amenity space including co-working space, gym and lounges, along with private underground car and cycle parking and a private residents’ garden, accessed directly from the ground floor amenity space.

The proposed developments will create almost one acre of high quality public realm located at the centre of the development to create active, vibrant spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy. The public realm will deliver a crucial part of the strategic pedestrian and cycle link between Hulme and the City Centre, which is a key priority of Manchester City Council’s Great Jackson Street Strategic Regeneration Framework.

Designed by Simpson Haugh, the towers share the same distinctive aesthetic, featuring chamfered edges incrementally increasing and decreasing every five storeys to create a dynamic vertical movement up the tower. A subtle variation in façade colour gives each tower its own distinctive identity whilst providing interest and excitement to the Manchester skyline.

A spokesperson for Renaker said: “We are delighted that our plans have been approved by Manchester City Council. Providing high quality new homes and first class amenities for residents, these two developments are a key part of – and further step towards – our vision for the wider creation of this exciting new city centre neighbourhood and build upon the successes of Deansgate Square, Crown Street and Castle Wharf. The Blade and 360 developments are already under construction, and we look forward to delivering these two similarly iconic developments in the near future.”

Firmly established as Manchester’s leading property developer, Renaker has a proven track record of delivering spacious, high-quality homes with desirable amenities, and creating aspirational new neighborhoods where communities can thrive long term.
