Capital & Centric has revealed plans for a £50 million residential scheme in central Manchester that will see the building of new homes.
The developer has submitted a planning application to convert a grade II listed mill complex near Piccadilly station into a residential scheme providing 201 one, two and three bed apartments.
The cluster of buildings is situated on Fair Street, Chapeltown Street, Congou Street and Baird Street around a central courtyard area.
The proposed scheme – known as Crusader Works – was designed by Shedkm and will provide 126 apartments in the existing mill and a further 75 apartments in an adjacent 10 storey building.
Adam Higgins, co-founder of Capital & Centric, said: “Crusader Works is one of Manchester’s forgotten treasures and has been neglected for too long.
“Our unique design led scheme will see the sensitive restoration of the mill using creative conservation designs to provide efficient and attractive living spaces and ensure the long term sustainability of the listed buildings.”
The developer is also responsible for Kampus – the £200 million mixed-use scheme on nearby Aytoun Street which is being delivered with joint venture partner, Henry Boot.
Work on Crusader Works is due to start on site next May, with the first phase of the apartments to be ready for occupation towards the end of 2018.
