Focus on Queens Brewery
27th June 2018
The Queen’s Brewery is a stunning Grade II-listed residential conversion of a former brewery in Manchester, which has both substantial historical and architectural significance. The site is over 155 years old, operating as a brewery for two Manchester-based brewing companies, Greatorex Brothers and most recently Hydes.
As well as being an iconic building known both locally and nationally, The Queen’s Brewery also has aesthetic significance, maintaining many of its original period features like a romantic style clock tower, red-brick exterior and Victorian features throughout.
Before and After at the Queens Brewery
Recognising the potential of a building with such importance within the local community, Forshaw Land & Property Group decided to channel this potential by making use of its period features to restore the old derelict brewery and turn it into desirable luxury apartments.
The Queen’s Brewery’s ample period features were mixed with modern amenities to create the perfect contemporary living environment.
The Queen’s Brewery is centrally located, just a stone’s throw away from Manchester’s ample transport network, including trains, trams,buses and major motorway networks. Tenants of The Queen’s Brewery are perfectly placed to take advantage of all that a suburb of Manchester has to offer, close to amenities like supermarkets, restaurants, bars and cafés. Furthermore, the cities of Manchester and Salford are just over 2 miles away—easily accessible by car, public transport or on foot.
The project was delivered on time, with a build time of just over 2 years, between June 2014 and August 2016. Queens Brewery was internationally recognised as best in class in the prestigious U.K. property awards 2016/2017.
This month ,The Barrel Yard, a new build scheme completed the second phase of the regeneration project for The Queen’s brewery area.
