Plans submitted for final phase at Ancoats’ Islington Wharf
Once completed, the landmark scheme will bring forward 106 one and two-bedroom apartments over two buildings at 11 and 16 storeys respectively, on the corner of Great Ancoats Street and Old Mill Street. This final phase will also feature 1,750 sq ft of active ground-floor uses along with landscaping, sustainability initiatives, 19 car parking (including disabled) and 106 secure cycle spaces.
Tom Webber, senior development manager at Waterside Places, said: “We’re really proud to have significantly contributed to the transformation and positive regeneration of the area, which has seen Ancoats rise to be named the 13th coolest place in the word to live in 2019.”.
“The final phase of Islington Wharf represents the last part of Waterside Places’ ambitious masterplan that began in 2005 to create, and then add to the vibrant community by developing much-needed homes close to the city centre, as well as bringing forward public spaces along the banks of Ashton Canal for everyone to enjoy.”
To date, the wider Islington Wharf development has brought forward 348 much-needed city centre homes on the banks of the Ashton Canal, ranging from one-bedroom apartments, to four-bedroom family townhouse homes that are innovatively and sympathetically designed to blend both the heritage of the area and its future; boasting high-quality features throughout.
Waterside Places specialises in revitalising and reinventing waterside areas across the country, creating exciting spaces to live, work and relax, thanks to a forward—thinking approach and drive to deliver urban renaissance.
Following planning approval, it is anticipated that the scheme will break ground in Q3 2021 with a view to being launched to the market late in 2022.
